Kitchen showroom Harrogate blog brings you the very latest on kitchen design for 2018. Whether your current layout needs renovating or you simply want to refresh a tired colour scheme, now is the perfect time to plan your dream kitchen. But what’s hot in the world of kitchen design?
Kitchen design in 2018 is all about timber veneers, colour contrast, texture, metallics and the ongoing industrial look, says bespoke furniture manufacturers Schmidt.
During 2017 we saw the emergence of more bold colours and textures in kitchen doors and this will follow into the new year. The mix of striking solid colours and woodgrains will continue to prove popular, whilst more industrial finishes like concrete will sit alongside these to really create interest in the kitchen. Consumers are increasingly looking for more variety and being braver in their style and colour choices. From colour to materials and appliances to aesthetics, take a look at the best kitchen trends of 2018.
Bold Kitchen Design
The use of colour in the kitchen is extremely important and should reflect homeowners’ personalities and their needs. For instance, a space for cooking should be light and bright while spaces designed for entertaining could have a darker essence to provide a suitable ambience. One thing which is a key trend in kitchen design for 2018 is being bold with colour and materials. Dark navy blues, deep teal, and earthy greys are very popular, teamed with gold handles or copper, and finished with light coloured worktops. While pastel and chalky tones will never completely disappear from hand painted kitchens, the trend setter will opt for a splash of dark tone somewhere. It may be purely the kitchen island, or a dresser, perhaps a table base – but it will feature !
From cobalt blue to powder blue and teal, blue is the colour of the moment when it comes to kitchens. Darker shades of this versatile hue will prove to be the most popular. ‘Undoubtedly the biggest colour trend the industry has seen this year is the desire to have blue in the kitchen,’ reveals BA Components. ‘This bold and dramatic move is for those who are brave and want to make a statement within the home.’
Horrah to escaping from polished chrome and stainless steel. Golds is on trend and combining this with browns and organic materials is going to be big for 2018. Combining the use of neutrals, golds and organic textures makes for a warm environment with a slight seventies feel, hitting the mark in terms of both style and substance. The boho look is not only easily adaptable with other colours but also comes hand in hand with good quality and timeless design – something which a kitchen needs to present. Copper is also fully established after slowly working its way into UK interiors from the USA who have embraced it for so long. why are us Brits so comfortable with chrome and so slow to accept change ! Combining industrial finishes with handpainted kitchens and furniture is a key look for 2018.
Shaker Kitchens are here for good !
Plain shaker kitchens are not going anywhere – they are right on trend and set to stay ! The demand for painted kitchens means that a shaker kitchen can find its character via colour selection. This makes it versatile, and allows it to suit any home. Change of paint colour can blend a shaker kitchen into a period home, or bring it right up to date in an ultra contemporary home.
Handles are back !
The purists amongst us will be devastated, however there is an enormous sigh of relief from anyone who has ever tried to work in a handle less kitchen. Touch catches in a kitchen are a nightmare for sticky fingers and finger pull edges – why did we ever think we could cook or bake and use these ! The introduction of more handle finishes as mentioned in golds and coppers, and the sheer volume of handle suppliers and manufacturers now means there is a handle for everyone. Certainly if you have a painted kitchen or a timber kitchen they are a must.
Smart kitchens and Technololgy
Smart appliances are developing at a rapid pace and anyone considering installing a new kitchen in 2018 should really not do without a boiling water tap – seen as a necessity in today’s living; wifi ready appliances – allowing us to control our kitchens from afar; and steam ovens and vacuum drawers – this makes cooking quicker, easier and contains the flavour in the food,’ say Kitchens International.
Integrated music and lighting that can all be controlled via one central hub, as well as a call for iPads installed for recipes and work surfaces with integrated mobile phone charging. In particular, the Amazon Dash button and Google Home have become ‘essentials’ in the kitchen, enabling homeowners to order products, play music, set reminders or find out recipes at the touch of a button or the sound of a voice.
A must have is the Zip Tap – now the world’s most advanced drinking water appliance. The Zip HydroTap transforms ordinary water into a form of the clients choice, all via one tap. This essential and smart addition to any kitchen provides pure tasting boiling, chilled and sparkling water at the push of a button.
