Top Kitchen Design Trends for 2018 and How You Can Embrace Them

If you’re looking for new kitchen ideas to spruce up your cooking space, then this is definitely the year to make some adjustments. The latest kitchen designs are bold, colorful, high contrast, and high tech. Here are some of our favorite kitchen design 2018 trends and how you can make them work in your own home.

Bold and Dark Paint Colors

Gone are the days when kitchens had to be white and neutral colors. The latest kitchen designs feature bold colors, like blue, green, and violet. The Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet, so lots of designers are basing their paint and accessories around this hue.

Dark colors are especially trendy right now for kitchens, with everything from walls to countertops. You can even breathe more life into your kitchen with colorful sinks, faucets, and appliances. To start, try experimenting with a dark purple coat of paint on one wall in your kitchen this year, or take the trend slowly with some new bakeware or appliances in violet shades.

Quartz Countertops

Continuing on with last year’s trend, quartz is still the countertop material of choice over granite. However, marble countertops are also an emerging kitchen trend if you’re looking to make a dramatic statement.

If it’s time to update your counters, definitely consider quartz because it is durable, easy to clean, and anti-microbial. Composite sinks also work very well with quartz countertops for a uniform look and easy maintenance. Built-in sinks are especially trendy right now for kitchen design 2018 because the sink material matches the countertop material, establishing a seamless transition from the food prep area to the cleaning area.

Two-Tone Cabinets

The hottest thing in kitchen cabinet trends 2018 is two-toned cabinets. This is a great time to move away from monochromatic color schemes and adopt more creative color combinations that mix and match.

These types of kitchen cabinet trends add character to the room and an extra dimension to catch the eye. Gray is a wonderful color to try for your updated cabinet design because it’s so versatile and looks great with both bold colors and neutrals

Smart Kitchen Technology

Of course, no trendy and modern room in the house would be complete without a few smart technology devices to make kitchen tasks easier and more connected. Look into refrigerators that send alerts when your groceries are low, coffeemakers that are programmed to have your coffee ready when you wake up, and lighting systems that allow you to control kitchen brightness from your smartphone to embrace this trend.

Simplicity and Minimalism

But while technology is embraced in the latest kitchen designs, so is simplicity and minimalism. For example, Instant Pots are very popular right now because they can do so many different things with just one appliance and without taking up much space in the kitchen. Start embracing this trend by clearing the clutter out of your kitchen and finding smart storage solutions for your appliances to clear counter space.
