Favorite Kitchen Design Trends 2018

With a new year, many of us have plans to renovate or fresh-up our homes. One living space I’d recommend starting with the heart of the home, the kitchen. We recently finished our kitchen renovation and I must say, it was worth the pain. If you are considering a kitchen renovation of your home, take a look at my favorite kitchen design trends for 2018.

ONE :: DARK KITCHENS

Move over all-white kitchens – dark kitchens are in! The dark kitchen however is not a new trend in 2018, but one that’s been building momentum over the last few years and can’t be ignored. From modern to traditional, dark gray, navy and black are hues are being used on cabinetry. I love it paired with white walls like in this kitchen designed by Studio McGee.

TWO :: STATEMENT RANGES

Another trend in kitchen design are statement ranges. Elaborate hoods are being toned down, while ranges are ramping up in style. Even though there are several luxury ranges that would certainly make a statement in your kitchen, La Cornue is leading the pack. La Cornue gives you more flexibility in customizing the color and trim of their ranges with 8 colors and 3 trim options. This gourmet kitchen (spotted on Instagram) feature’s a gorgeous La Cornue range in tapestry.

THREE :: COZY KITCHENS

Open floor plans have allowed for a easy access from kitchen to living spaces, however it’s been the textiles and furnishings which help deliver a seamless flow. In the process, kitchens are now getting more inviting, approachable and cozier. Adding upholstered banquettes, throw pillows and plush area rugs in the kitchen is a trend I don’t see slowing down in 2018.

FOUR :: BLACK FINISHES

FOUR :: MATTE BLACK FINISHES

As I mentioned, darker colors are making a comeback in the kitchen, but it’s not just the cabinetry. I’m specifically noticing a shift from polished finishes (brass, chrome, etc.) to matte black. From lighting to faucets; appliances to hardware, matte black finishes are trending. Loving this breakfast nook with a woven pendant in black. (image sources – first via Instagram – Lilly Gianikas and second via Studio McGee

Colder weather is at our doorstep and that means one thing… it’s time to bundle up. Cozy plaid throws are a timeless favorite. The classic pattern is a great one for the winter months. I also love that throws are super easy to use either inside or out.

I know you been spotting them on instagram and pinterest too… large tassel blankets thrown over the foot of a bed. The layered look like in this room designed by Amber Interiors is a great way to add color, pattern or texture to a bedroom. And let’s not forget how cozy an extra blanket during the winter months ahead.
