Are you already planning ways to enhance your home in 2018? Now is the perfect time to start! A kitchen remodel is a great way to add value to your home and enhance the way that you use your kitchen every day. Curious about some of the kitchen trends that will be seen throughout kitchen remodels in 2018? Look no further!
White will always be a popular color for kitchen remodels because it is clean and bright. It can also make a small space feel much larger if you are stuck in a tiny apartment kitchen or breakfast nook. Almost 70% of National Kitchen and Bath Association members indicated that white is the most popular cabinet color now, up 20% from only two years ago. White on white is also becoming more popular, and many kitchen-remodels will use white cabinets and white backsplashes.
Smaller is Bigger
Small, more minimalist designs are becoming more popular in every room of the home. Small appliances are becoming much more popular in kitchen remodels. Instead of a large kitchen with elaborate cooking surfaces, more modest cooks are executing kitchen remodels with two-burner cooktops, microwave/convection oven combos, smaller dishwashers, and slimmed down refrigerators. If you use your kitchen for just yourself or identify more with ordering takeout than having friends over to eat, a smaller kitchen remodel might be best for you.
Quartz Over Granite
Recent studies have shown that quartz is a better countertop material than granite. Quartz is actually stronger than granite, and it is the most resistant to scratches, chips, and burns. Quartz countertops are made by mixing small pieces of crushed quartz with a sturdy resin to make a hard, solid surface that is very tough. You will not need to worry about sealing quartz countertops as you would with granite, either.
