Kitchen and bath remodeling can sometimes cost you a pretty penny. From a few thousand dollars to several tens of thousands, regardless of the size of the renovation, you want that new remodel to last a while. Luckily, we've got the scoop on the latest 2018 kitchen and bath remodeling trends, so you won't have to worry about choosing the perfect look for your home that will offer lasting value.Kitchen Cleanliness: The latest trend is a clean, contemporary design with an open concept that displays horizontal handles and shelving, complete with thick countertops. With this approach, you give a sense of neatness and fresh simplicity, which is always a fantastic selling point if you decide to put your house on the market in the future.
Black and White Are Back: In 2018, color is out, replaced instead by the black and white trend. Even though it's all the rage, these two "colors" can be a bit hard on the eyes after a while, not to mention that these two colors can be quite fickle: White shows dirt, while black shows every single scratch. To tone down the repetitive color scheme, add some contrasting design elements and accent pieces, like deep red curtains or vivid, eye-catching decor.
Blend-In Appliances: Homeowners are leaning more towards open concept living spaces. In doing so, from a design point-of-view, it's essential to select appliances that blend in with the rest of the house. So, that means it's out with the old, like mega-sized stainless-steel refrigerators and big pro ranges, and in with the new, all concealed appliances. Another shift in consumerism is sustainability, so homeowners are looking for Energy Star appliances that use less electricity overall, such as induction cooktops.
It's All About Dark Wood: Although dark wood has always been a fashionable look, it's now forcing its way into kitchen and bathrooms, creating some fantastic new styles for 2018. Now, it's all about black-white combos, like white cabinetry coupled with dark-colored woods, such as zebra wood or mahogany, for countertops. Together, this duo creates one incredibly attractive sight!
