You’re ready for the new year, but your kitchen isn’t quite there yet. Step into 2018 with these 4 easy updates for the heart of your living space.
Let your Floors be your Guide
Although you may usually look to countertops or cabinets as the usual starting place for kitchen renovation, the rising trend for 2018 is a ground up approach to updating the room. Instead, start with an eye catching statement on the floor and work your way up with matching cabinet details. A bold pattern or a grainy dark tile works as a great starting point.
Rearrange the Metal
We know the classic stainless steel appliance is here to stay, but that doesn’t mean these metal touches have to stay in one place all year. If you’re looking for an easy update to your kitchen metals for the new year, consider shifting existing metal, or adding new metals to fresh spots in the room. One example of this that we’re already seeing is the incorporation of metal via copper sheeting in unexpected places such as shelf borders and cabinet faces.
Get Creative with Cabinetry
Another trend on deck for the new year is disguising these metal appliances all together with creative custom cabinetry. If you love the look of simplification, consider building these appliances into your cabinet space with drawer style access to microwaves, toasters, and coffee makers. These custom touches to your kitchen are especially useful for simplifying the look of your cabinets, hiding clutter, and converting your counter space to an entertainers dream for special occasions and holidays.
Add the Everyday Function
The best thing to happen to kitchen remodeling trends in the past decade is the ability to customize your kitchen to the needs of your family. While the thought of entertaining guests during the holidays is often the catalyst for kitchen updates, consider the everyday demands of your space as the center of your home throughout the year. Why not make this space the perfect place for work and family time? An example of this is the rise of kitchen homework spaces for households with kids in school, so you can utilize the space beyond meals in all hours of the day .
