SMART KITCHEN TRENDS FOR 2018

Real Estate

Whether you're selling your home or renovating a current home, you want to keep it classy and on trend. Trendy doesn't necessarily mean going with what's new out there. It means staying within the functionality of the home and adding a little spark to your home. Can be color, layout, materials, etc. used to create that special space. It's always important to remember, in the back of your mind, even though it might be years down the road, keep it timeless!

For example, stainless appliances have been around for years now and will remain a trend for years to come. And also, White is still a big favorite for kitchen cabinets. Homeowners love it for its clean look, which is especially beneficial in a space that tends to get cluttered. White cabinets are simply beautiful and timeless and can be used in almost any kind of kitchen style. We expect white to remain a popular cabinet color in 2018 and probably for years to come. To break up the all-white kitchen expect to see islands in a variety of different paint colors or wood stain colors. The mixing of finishes create a needed accent piece and additional pops-of-color for the brave of heart.

As popular as white cabinets are, grey is the second choice for many. Grey cabinets are like a chameleon of sorts. Versatile for any look or project. Grey cabinets work great when paired with natural elements, glamour accents, or none at all.

White and grey seem to be the two big cabinet colors going into 2018 still. Their modern clean look will keep them as favorites for years. But there is another color palette slowly making its way into the kitchen–dark jewel tones: black, navy, emerald green and even plum.  It will surprise you at how well dark kitchen cabinets can work in and/or enhance a kitchen space with its dramatic and luxurious feel.

Dark kitchen cabinets portray full-on elegance and a deep rich luxurious atmosphere that the other options just don’t.  They cast the kitchen in a subtle dramatic essence.   However, you have to be careful that it does not overpower the room, making it feel perpetually dark. But more and more homeowners are getting bolder and opting for a kitchen with dark cabinet colors in 2018. While a darker color palate may not be the new white anytime soon, it certainly will get more popular with time.

What ever you select, make sure you LOVE IT! ENJOY YOUR HOME!
