If 2018 trends are any indication, kitchens are about to look very chic. This year, the trending materials, layouts, and shapes are less about the new and never-before-seen and more about time-tested elements mixed with modern shapes. The materials in our kitchens are seeing a revival of antiqued and matte patina—think less ostentatious and more understated. Contemporary detailing is mixed with classic accents to create a fresh yet timeless feel, and traditional layouts are being entirely revisited. Lastly, every last detail is well thought out to create a more seamless look. Ready to dream up your ideal kitchen? The 2018 kitchen trends are ones to watch.
