4 KITCHEN TRENDS THAT ARE DOMINATING 2018
The days of monochromatic kitchens are far behind us, according to Sue Wadden, the director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. She explains that, this year, it’s all about mixing and matching color, no need to keep it all the same:
“Using multiple colors in kitchens has become a popular trend this year. For example, painting base walls or cabinets in a dark charcoal tone and upper cabinets and walls in creamy off-white tones is something we’re seeing more and more of.”
Pantone announced Ultra Violet as the color of the year, and it’s already shaping up to be a major trend in every aspect of home design.
Shannon Zapala, co-founder of glassware brand GOVERRE explains, “One of the popular kitchen trends for 2018 is using bold, unexpected colors […] such as Ultra Violet, Pantone’s color of the year! This dramatic color exudes a feeling of luxury and elegance.”
“Step aside Carrara,” says interior designer Donna Mondi.
She explains that the newest ‘it’ look for the kitchen is dramatic marble that makes a statement, noting, “Marble countertops with high contrast bold veining are making quite a statement. It’s perfect for book-matching to create intense drama, or doing as a waterfall down the sides of the island. Either way, this new trend is one to watch as I think it’ll be going strong for years to come.

Wood kitchen counters are another popular trend this year.
“Add warmth to a kitchen with wood counters,” says interior designer CeCe Barfield. “Wood creates old-world charm and a less utilitarian aesthetic. Wood counters feel like furniture, which visually enhances an area that is likely much more than just a place to cook.” ออกแบบบ้าน
