2018 is just around the corner and we all know that a new year means new trends. If you are thinking about remodeling your home this new year, this is the time to start planning. To help you out a little bit, we have compiled a list of home trends that you can expect to see in 2018.
- Colorful kitchens
The black-and-white trend we saw in 2018 won’t be around much in the new year. This year it’s all about colorful kitchens, which can bring a warmer and more personal feel to your kitchen. The colors that are going to be the most popular are greens or charcoal along with different shades of oranges and blues.
- Trendy kitchen countertops
Quartz, Granite and Marble countertops are going to among the most popular materials used for kitchen countertops in 2018. Straying away from the neutral colored countertops this year will also be a likely trend, giving your kitchen a little flare.
- No more white or stainless steel sinks
Homeowners are starting to move away from white and stainless steel sinks and are moving into stone, copper, concrete and granite farmhouse sinks.
- Brass accents
Stainless steel accents are no longer to be expected when you step foot in someone’s home. Golden brass tones are moving their way out of the 80’s and into the late 2000’s.
- Dark floors
The contrast between light cabinets and dark floors in the kitchen area is a big trend among kitchen remodels in 2018. Giving your custom a furniture-like “foot” can give your cabinets a softer and more personal touch.
- Statement tile
A rug isn’t a practical use in the kitchen, so instead we are seeing statement tile making its way into the kitchen area. This is a way to make your kitchen bold and express your style and personality.
- Black appliances
Black appliances used to be a thing of the past, but manufacturers like GE, Samsung, and Whirlpool have introduced “Black Stainless Steel” series that introduces shades of black and slate.
- Combination bathtub/shower
A lot of homeowners are tearing up built-in bathtubs to create a wet room that hold both their shower and their bathtub. By doing this, you are increasing accessibility (and being ADA-compliant can increase your home’s resale value).
