If you ever thought that your white kitchen cabinets will be forever trendy, well you were wrong. In 2018 the clean pure white colored kitchens will be totally out. You can do off white kitchen where a warm grey is a back hue into the white, but definitely no white cabinetry. However if you absolutely love your whites, then try adding another cabinetry color but painting your island a warm grey or even some upper cabinets. Mix and matching the colors is very much in but you must make sure it all works together. We at Karin Ross Designs can help you determine the correct colors for your kitchen and space.
When designing your new kitchen remodel you must be open to new open concept ideas. For 2018 any walls between kitchens and connected dining rooms are coming down. Creating a big kitchen that takes over a good amount of the main level are featured in the kitchen layout designs, because the importance of the kitchen space has grown so much over the years. In today customs, the kitchens are used not only as a space to cook but also as spaces to communicate with our kids as we cook, supervise our kids as they do their homework on the island, tell stories to our friends as they visit with us as we prepare food and so much more. As the kitchens roles have grown in our lives, thanks to technologies we are able to get many more gadgets to help us make things easier for our daily tasks. Expect to see more specialty appliances like coffee machines that remembers how strong you want your coffee and at what time, under counter microwave drawers, warming drawers, steamers, induction cooking etc.
The island is regaining its needed space and glory. A single leveled island gives you a much wanted prep space and creates more intimacy for the space.
Another big change is the fewer amounts of upper cabinetry. The new trends embrace the open shelving ideas where you can display your favorite dishes or glasses, which also adds another touch of intimacy or also so called “homey feeling”. Through the open shelves concept you are able to add different colors and the change of such doesn’t require major remodeling.
Clean lines, quartz countertops, complimenting colors, led undercabinet lighting are just few elements that together with our team will blend well in creating your dream kitchen.
