7 Kitchen Trends to Look Out for in 2018

Thanks to the internet, it’s very easy to get ideas and inspiration to give your kitchen an updated look or just make it more functional for the family. If you’re a fan of Pinterest, you may have dream boards of what you want your kitchen to look like. And this applies to every part of the house! You may have a clear idea about what you want your kitchen to look like but this is still subject to the latest kitchen trends. As with clothing fashions, what’s hip and trendy in a kitchen changes as time goes by. To make sure you stay in the loop about the latest kitchen trends, let's take a look at the kitchen trends to look out for in 2018.

  • Colour palette

    There are so many colours to choose from, but there’s only a handful of shades and hues that fit perfectly for a kitchen. Of course, it depends on your style and preferences but in 2018, try a colour palette that covers blue, moss green and/or neutral tones.
  • Open shelves

    You can never have enough storage space, and in the kitchen, you can add more through open shelving. It’s a simple and effective way to add room for storing different kitchen items, tools, and condiments.
  • Lighting

    Simply adding lights to a room can greatly improve the mood and overall look. You can add pendant lights to serve as your focal point. Make sure to also consider the hardware and appliances that you already have, ensuring that the lighting complements everything else.
  • Black cabinets and tiles

    If you want to have a contemporary kitchen opt for black appliances, tiles and even cabinets. You don’t have to go for an all-black kitchen. Just having black-coloured appliances can give a more polished look.
  • Kitchen island

    It’s not new, but the island bench shows no sign of going out of fashion. Many family homes go for multi-use islands that come with a sink or shelves or even a breakfast bar.
  • Open layout

    An open layout makes the kitchen look brighter and more spacious. You can also do a lot with an open layout. For instance, you can have an alfresco kitchen and dining area that is ideal for entertaining guests.
  • Coffee bar

    Coffee is a staple in most homes and wouldn’t it be great to have a space in the kitchen specifically for your coffee? You can install a cupboard for your mugs and cups, as well as coffee beans and grinders.
