4 kitchen trends to watch in 2018

The kitchen trends set to take design blogs by storm in 2018

Meteor Cashmere

With the busy festive period behind you, January is the perfect time to turn the home renovation ideas you’ve been considering for months into a reality.

So if you’re dreaming of a new kitchen in 2018, here are the four trends set to take interior design blogs by storm this year.

A touch of texture

This year’s home trends are all about taking elements of both modern and traditional looks to create a whole new style that’s bursting with personality. Textured worktops are a subtle yet effective way to bring a hint of uniqueness to a neutral kitchen, whether you choose the subtle flecked texture of quartz and corian, the speckled style of trendsetting grey terrazzo, or a chic marbled effect.

Perfect pairings

Pinterest’s trend forecast predicts we’re all going to be swapping doors in neutral hues for a bright pop of colour this year, and there’s no reason you can’t include the colourful doors trend in the kitchen too. If you want to avoid overwhelming a small kitchen, accent cabinets are a brilliant way to take a subtler approach to this trend. Pair one soothing neutral tone with kitchen cabinets in a brighter or darker accent hue to create a balanced yet bold look.

Stay golden

While copper kitchen accessories have long been in the spotlight, this year golden, brassy tones are set to become the most coveted metal finish for kitchens across the country. Update an existing kitchen with brassy gold cabinet handles to give it a fresh new feel, then add matching golden accessories like mixing bowls, tea canisters and fruit bowls to complete the look.

Ultra violet

Pantone have announced Ultra Violet as their colour of the year for 2018 – a vibrant shade of purple described by the colour experts as ‘thoughtfully provocative’. Go all-out on the purple trend by opting for a Decoglaze splashback in this daring ‘Velvet’ shade, or take a muted approach by accessorising with purple photo frames, seat cushions and decorative vases.
