We have come up with a list of kitchen décor ideas that are certain to grace your kitchen space this year.
2018 is the year of metal finish, and this latest trend is expected to make its place into kitchens as well. Install a Pot Rack and sturdy metal hooks to hang your shiny metal pots against the backsplash. This will become the focal point of your kitchen, making it look exceptionally modern. Gone are the times when pots and metal wares were stored hidden in the cabinetry. They are now being used and flaunted to make a statement. This would free up a lot of precious space in your cabinets too. But make sure to not overwhelm the entire kitchen with this trend in order to make is look elegant. Just the right amount of metal and you are all set.
An all-white kitchen continued to be one of the biggest kitchen trends for the past couple of years. And why not? White is as elegant as it can be. But an all-white kitchen will no longer be a trend in 2018. Rather, a splash of colours against a white backdrop will rule the world of kitchen trends this year. Colours signify harmony and well-being, and adding colour to your kitchen will not only make it look quirky, but would also liven up the kitchen environment. This kind of décor will allow you to have fun time with friends and family, while you cook away your favourite dish. Some colourful trays on the countertop, a few cook books, a couple of colourful rugs, and small art pieces would do wonders.
Dark and Darker
Wood is known to be very adaptive and can complement almost any interior design, wood in kitchen can never go out of style. This year, dark wood is all set to conquer kitchens. And incorporating black granite for countertops in kitchen would only enhance the elegance and oomph of your kitchen. Dark wood gives your kitchen an upscale look and hence, is preferred over other colour variants. When contrasted with shiny surfaces, it tends to give your kitchen a monochrome veneer. You may choose some contrasting colour with dark wood to give your kitchen a warm and sober accent. But make sure your kitchen is well lit to avoid making it look small and congested.
Mixing metal is the trend that will take a high ground. 2018 is not only about stainless steel. Brass and bronze are gaining popularity too. Brass is easy to be taken care of and does not tarnish easily. Pairing brass handles with white cupboards and drawers makes your kitchen look high-end. Moreover, you need not restrict yourself to using just these metals. You can pair them with black ovens, dark countertops and other coloured metal appliances. Metal also complements the natural stone finish benchtops. Metal cabinetry too, adds the age-old aesthetics to kitchen spaces and is highly trending. You can also go for wrought iron to give your kitchen a rustic and Mediterranean finish. The great thing about wrought iron is that it suits both dark wood and white cabinetry well.
2018 is all about maintaining ecological balance and bringing in calmness and serenity. And what would be better than giving your kitchen a gift of greens? Planting herbs in a kitchen not only makes it look calmer and natural, but also perks up the luxury quotient because there are all types of plants with a royal perfection.
