2. Furniture in dark colors: gray and black
Two colors that take some time trying to enter our kitchens are going to remain one of the kitchen design trends 2018, we talk about gray and black. Both are colors that can give a lot of play, alone or combined with traditional colors like wood or white. The black color is certainly risky but also helps to create very personal environments, your kitchen will no longer need to be up to the last. Combine it with the rest of elements in white whether your style is more modern or more traditional and the result you will love.
The gray color for the furniture is a safe bet that brings elegance and modernity at the same time. Combining two-color furniture is also up-to-date, so if you do not dare to put all your kitchen in gray, a good option may be just use it on the bottom and on the top bet on the classic white. Or if you are more daring a totally gray kitchen combined with wood and a white countertop can be a total success. You will be in the latest trends in kitchens!
Another classic that is part of kitchen design trends 2018 and for which bet if you are thinking of renovating your kitchen is the combination of black and white. Whether combining it in your kitchen cabinets or by betting on the wall of your kitchen in black to create contrast and feeling of greater depth. I love! A union that never fails.
3. Bet on new materials
The tempered glass for both worktops and in the area of the dashboard is trend. It is a durable material in addition to very beautiful and offers us an original and different color range. Now it is used as a worktop thanks to its resistance to bumps and scratches. The result can not be more beautiful and colorful, thanks to a wide range of colors. And with that special glitter of glass.
We continue with the kitchen design trends 2018 with stainless steel, another material that is gaining more ground not only in industrial kitchens where it has been a classic for decades. A very resistant material of simple maintenance, very hygienic and elegant that is gradually getting into the home too. Its advancement will continue as it offers many advantages besides a great aesthetic result.
Concrete is also being introduced into the worktops of our kitchen as an element that brings many practical advantages. Therefore, it is not surprising that Alnocera was the winner of the best German 2016 kitchen design. The concrete offers high resistance to heat and scratching, which makes it a perfect material for cooking. Besides giving a very industrial and modern touch to the kitchen, do not you think?
4. Kitchens open to the rest of the home
In today’s homes, one of the latest trends in kitchens is to make it open to the rest of the home. This way of organizing the space offers the advantage of improving social interaction even during the preparation of meals. Perhaps it is the American influence or that every day the ventilation systems in the kitchen are better but it is a fact that the open kitchens are gradually gaining ground in our home. They are no longer a rare avis.
In this kitchen concept, the islands become the center of space, being functional and accessible on all sides. We also see more and more kitchens where the dining table is part of the island of the kitchen, a very practical way of distributing space, since there are two areas, the preparation and consumption of food, which are inevitably linked. Besides being an attractive and elegant layout is very practical. Having them together gives us many advantages when it comes to serving the food.
5. Bells that become more decorative or even disappear
In extractor hoods we can see two diametrically opposite trends. On the one hand the proliferation of decorative bells with designs that look more like decorative lamps than the traditional kitchen bells of a lifetime. And every day we want more than our kitchen to become a design space and, especially if we have the cooking zone on an island, the trend is to install bells with an attractive and even artistic design that decorate the environment.
Or we go to the opposite, bells that are installed in the false ceiling and disappear of the view. Thanks to the improvement of the extractive capacity of the bells this option is viable if we have a ceiling of up to 2.5 meters of height. Or you can create a false ceiling over the cooking zone to install the hood if our roof is higher. If you do not like to see the extractor hood is your choice!
6. Metals also take center stage: gold, brass, copper …
Gold is in fashion we have talked about it on other occasions and our kitchen does not resist it. Whether in faucets or in all kinds of accessories, such as lamps or even in shooters, gold comes on hard to conquer our kitchen and become part of it. If you feel like giving just a subtle touch to the handle of modern kitchens 2018 can be a great option because you can change them when you get tired of them without problem and without great cost.
But not only gold, metals in general are fully current for home decor and the kitchen was not going to be less. Copper is still trend in all kinds of details including faucets or hood. We have seen it for a long time but it does not seem to tire us yet. And they are now joined the brass to decorate in your kitchen small details or even the entire front of an island. Which one do you prefer?
7. A classic, the marble returns
Another of the kitchen design trends 2018 is a classic that returns for the whole home and, of course, the kitchen could not be less. If recently it seemed that it was already totally obsolete, for some time now we are seeing a rebirth of its presence in our kitchens. Both in its classic white color and in all kinds of colors with striking streaks and very colorful. The marble is a safe bet for countertops and dashboard for its beauty but also for its hardness and resistance.
8. Dark steel appliances
Another novelty that comes with strength for our current kitchens are dark steel appliances. A classic that is renewed, appliances in stainless steel, to offer a new version of itself that we find very attractive and goes perfectly with the trend of gray and black colors in the kitchen that we talked later. And you, will you target dark steel appliances? One more option when giving our kitchen a different and current point.
