5 Kitchen Renovation Trends To Look Out For In 2018

The scope of kitchen renovations is constantly evolving. 2017 was a big year for smart designs, minimalistic colour palettes and accommodating for small spaces.

As we ring in the new year innovations in kitchen designs are also in full swing. Instead of subtle interiors, the future is looking into bold palettes, sleeker designs and an overall need for smarter kitchens. Start 2018 right with these 5 inspiring kitchen renovation trends:

1. Pantone’s Colour Of The Year

Every year the colour institute releases a shade that embodies the year ahead. 2017’s colour of the year is Greenery, a natural earthy colour. Pantone’s colour for 2018 is Ultra Violet. The lustrous and powerful shade of purple is already starting to claim popularity in interior designs. You can use Ultra Violet as a feature wall or repaint your kitchen island, cabinets and doors with the bold colour.

2. Striking Two Tones

Last year subtle and minimalistic colour palettes were all the rage. Now kitchen designs are more welcoming to colours. The future of the simple colour technique is combining neutral shades of greys, creams and whites with bright, striking tones. Paint your walls and surroundings with a plain white or grey, then go big with the kitchen island, cabinets or doors’ paint. Popular stand out colours includes saffron yellow, deep blue and ultra violet.

3. Effortless Luxury

The humble kitchen is starting to move into a more sophisticated and elegant aesthetic. Trends show that more and more kitchens are adding a touch of class in certain areas. From metal finishes, sleek steel drawers and cabinets to bold metallic lighting fixtures. The key is to add elegant materials into the interiors subtly; too much it starts losing its appeal.

4. Seamless Kitchens

While the colour schemes of kitchen interiors are becoming more striking, everything else is becoming even more minimalistic. “Invisible” kitchens are now highly sought after. A seamless kitchen means storage solutions are neatly tucked away out of sight within smartly crafted cabinets and drawers. This also counts for appliances as fridges and oven doors take on the same materials as the kitchen.

5. Quartz Table Tops

Granite table tops ruled 2017, with Quartz being a close competitor. What set the two apart was that granite is made of real stone while Quartz mixed in materials. Current renovators are becoming savvier and are preferring the more affordable and versatile quartz material for table tops.
