Kitchen Trends for 2018

2018 has arrived in full force with new design trends on the horizon. Portella Steel Doors and Windows has predicted the top eight kitchen trends for updating your designs.

Top kitchen design trends in 2018:

  1. Pops of Color

Although white is a classic, go-to color for kitchen design, homeowners are beginning to expand their color palettes with rich cabinetry colors for a more warm, fresh and unique feel.

  1. Black Cabinetry

Black is becoming the new white. Homeowners are breaking away from the all-white trend, selecting richer, bolder and darker hues.

  1. Neutral Walls

Just because cabinetry is going darker, doesn’t mean your walls will be the same. We’re seeing a lot of bright whites in warmer tones, even beige.

  1. Open Shelving

Whether displaying an appealing collection of glassware or creating the illusion of more space, open shelving will be taking over kitchens this year.

  1. Recessed Lighting

Homeowners are selecting recessed lighting opposed to pendant lighting to create more space and the perception of higher ceilings.

  1. Farmhouse Sinks

The modern Farmhouse style will continue to flourish along with more concrete, stone, copper and granite composite in darker hues of gray, bronze or black.

  1. Simple Hardware

Less is more when it comes to kitchen cabinetry. Predictions are trending toward fewer hardware accents and more integral pulls on cabinet doors.

  1. Natural light

Daylighting, the use of natural light in the kitchen, has an exceptional number of benefits from increased productivity and mental and visual stimulation, to lower energy costs.
