Are you planning on remodeling your kitchen soon? If so, you may be interested in learning about the newest trends when it comes to kitchen remodeling projects. Here are some of the kitchen trends that are expected to be popular in 2018.
White cabinets have been a classic option in the kitchen for some time. And this trend is not expected to change in 2018. White cabinets can help make a small kitchen seem larger, can make a dark kitchen seem brighter and can help a kitchen to look and feel cleaner. If you are looking to either have your cabinets resurfaced and painted or have new cabinets installed, white cabinets still reign supreme in 2018.
Another kitchen trend that is carrying over from last year is quartz countertops. While granite and marble are still popular options for kitchens, more and more homeowners are spending a little bit more money and investing in quartz. Quartz is more durable and stain-resistant than other types of natural stone, making it a great option for the kitchen. It also comes in a variety of colors, ensuring that there is a perfect color option to pair with your cabinets and flooring choice.
Speaking of flooring, one of the hottest new trends of 2018 is dark flooring. You are seeing a lot of light colors in the kitchen, including white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and white countertops. But this year, light flooring is making its way out. If you love hardwood, consider dark hardwood floors with wide planks to make a splash. If you want to keep hardwood floors out of your kitchen, patterned ceramic flooring featuring dark colors and bold prints can be used to make a statement in your kitchen. Either way, a dark flooring paired with light cabinets makes an impact.
The last trend that is expected to be popular in kitchens in 2018 is metal accents. While stainless steel is often the go-to metal type in kitchens, this year, bolder colors and chunkier pieces of metal are expected to take center stage. This includes metal handles and pulls, light fixtures, faucets and even the hood in your kitchen. Copper, nickel and brass are all expected to be popular metal choices in the kitchen this year. If you are looking to update your kitchen and do not have a lot of money to put into the remodeling project, simply bringing in some of these metal types can provide a modern and funky look that can instantly transform the space.
