Five Trends in Kitchen Remodeling for 2018
When it’s time to remodel your kitchen, you want the best for bang for your buck, and that means keeping up with what’s new. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, here are some hot new trends for 2018.
There are more and more new technology devices coming out every day. In order to take advantage of everything new, planning must take place ahead of time. Extra outlets, wiring and room for devices need to be in place. Even if you don’t have this tech in your life now, planning ahead can save you money in the future. Take the time to consult with your contractor now, and you will be ready when you make the leap.
Lighting is more sophisticated and being controlled by smart devices now. One light in the center of the room won’t cut it anymore. Look for path lighting, under cabinet lighting and options for mood, or specific task lighting.
Sustainable materials: There is a much greater concern for the environment and a continuing move to more sustainable products. Bamboo floors are a great example. People are also opting for more indoor environmentally friendly products like low VOC paints and carpets. Natural stone products, quartz or cement countertops are also leading the markets.
We are seeing great strides in super customized storage solutions. Many cabinet designers are adding this into their lines. Europe has led the way to this in recent years, but it is coming to the US now. Look for specific cabinets to store spices, pots and pans, and lightly used appliances among other things.
while white and gray cabinets are still top sellers, designers are adding more color this year. Paint will always be an easy way to add a pop of color while still keeping the basics neutral and saving money, when the next big thing comes along.
