Insight into the Coming Kitchen Trends for 2018 according to the latest Kitchen and Bath Industry Show
Transitional decor still dominated the kitchen design at this year's KBIS show. Transitional style mixes traditional and contemporary elements to make the kitchen a bit more relaxed. Painted cabinets are still the norm with classic white being the most often used hue, but a mix of gray and white is a great twist. Another color popping up is blue. A great way to add this pop of color in is to have just the island painted blue while the rest of the cabinets are classic white.
Wood floors are increasing in popularity, though personally, I still prefer tile that looks like wood for ease of maintenance, scratch resistance, and no worries about water damage.
Where you really need a durable surface is your counters, and that's why Engineered Quartz ranked first in countertop material according to Houzz's latest kitchen trends study. Quartz is a manufactured but natural stone-based material and has the ability to mimic marble, slate, or other stones, or create a solid-hued modern look. This means it can truly suit any kitchen. There are many manufacturers of quartz products including Corian Quartz (formerly branded as Zodiaq), Caesarstone, Cambria, Vadara, Silestone, Pental, and many more. Slab sizes can vary from one manufacturer to the other as well as from color to color from each manufacturer so be sure to ask us which product will best suit your project.
Another great option for countertop material is Solid Surface such as Corian Solid Surface, Staron, or Hi-Macs. Solid surface is non-porous, durable, repairable, and best of all, seamless which means that your sink may be integrated as well. This makes for a very clean, sleek look.
