Keep these six trends in mind for your 2018 kitchen transformation
From full renovations to small refreshes, here are just a few of our favourite emerging kitchen trends that you might like to incorporate into your design if you are making 2018 the year in which you create your dream kitchen.
Make a style statement with colour
Whether you like the sound of introducing small splashes of your favourite colour or are keen to experiment with bold colour clashes and dip your toes into the exciting and intriguing world of maximalism, the kitchen is an ideal place to showcase your personality and make a bold style statement.
Opt for bold sunshine yellow accessories for an uplifting cooking and dining environment, or play with pink, orange and red tones to create an invigorating ambience with bundles of character and warmth.
Super-sweet pastel hues
Bold colour palettes are not for everyone. If they are not to your taste, why not have a look at incorporating some pastel tones into your design instead? Incorporating splashes of pastel peach or pink into an otherwise white or grey kitchen will instantly add an element of individuality and a sense of fun without ever feeling too overwhelming. Working especially well in smaller kitchen spaces, pastel hues are adept at creating a sense of space and light that will ensure your kitchen is a space in which you enjoy spending a portion of your time each day.
Warm and welcoming
Gold accents are set to be popular throughout the design world in 2018. As they add just the right amount of warmth to kitchen spaces, they are likely to be widely popular amongst those looking to ensure their kitchen always feels like the real heart of their home.
Incorporating gold accents into a kitchen that contains lots of wood and other natural materials will help to give the space a characterful bohemian twist, which can be amplified with patterned fabrics and ceramics or toned down with pared-back accessories with clean lines and minimal colour. Alternatively, introducing gold fixtures and fittings into a sleek, ultra-modern kitchen space will inject a touch of understated glamour that is almost impossible to resist.
This is a trend that you can either take to the extreme or lightly dabble in and end up with a design that looks flawless. Finishes with a concrete effect are currently surging in popularity and look especially striking when paired with patina-finished metals or shiny brass accessories. Glass side tables also work well within industrial kitchens, introducing a touch of modernity and making their own subtle style statement without taking anything away from the unique textures and finishes of an already characterful aesthetic.
Do you have a beautiful tea set or dinner service you would like to display? Perhaps you have a penchant for plants housed in beautiful ceramic pots, or enjoy cooking with a variety of herbs and spices that you like to have on-hand at all times? Although it will undoubtedly add a little extra time to your cleaning routine, opting for open shelving will provide you with a simple and ultra-flexible way to introduce elements of your own personality into your design.
If you have the space for a kitchen island, we will always recommend incorporating one into your design because it will easily become one of the most hardworking pieces of furniture in your home. In addition to giving you plenty of extra counter space, storage and a handy casual breakfast area, you could choose to install an appliance into your island to free up some space elsewhere in your kitchen.
Ultimately, the key to a successful kitchen is ensuring the design works for your lifestyle. Make sure you really think about how you want to spend time in this space and incorporate features you know you will use and love.
