We’re still seeing natural wood elements in the kitchen and the floor is where this design statement is being made. Noted above, wood countertops are on the upswing, thick wood shelving and more textured door styles in clear or semi-opaque stains are beautiful design elements in 2018 kitchens.
In general, kitchen design in 2018 is all about modern design with several variations on the theme. Little by little each year, function and aesthetics are equal players at the start of the design process. This means that art, collections and the visual aesthetic plays a more important part than ever. A small chip to the “form follows function” armor?
Countertop trends for 2018 feature an old favorite, marble, especially seen in engineered stone. Marble patterns are so creatively designed in exaggerated blown-up patterns we saw last year and still love as well as a wide range of patterns that are almost coy – obviously faux but clearly marble-inspired. There is a noticeable turn away from the Calacattas and Carraras toward these (and natural) similar but different marble patterns. Wood countertops are trending in 2018 and nicely warm up the modern aesthetic. Engineered stone countertop colors (non marble) for 2018 are grays, mottled and soft concrete textures, leather finishes on the periphery and a bit of khaki colored stone on the horizon.
A trend toward wellness is more a concept than a specific look. Large windows, comfortable seating-perhaps a kitchen sofa or banquette, space for plants and herbs, high performance/easy care products such as engineered stone, room for art, design elements from nature, a large sink, purified water, ample traffic flow and a steam oven are some attributes of a kitchen designed for an overall feeling of wellness.
