Your kitchen is an important part of your house that brings your family and friends together. It’s the one room that everyone tends to gravitate toward at the end of the night or first thing in the morning. Even though you may not be due for an upgrade, a few popular styles will update your kitchen and give it that modern day feel. Here are some of the top kitchen trends of 2018.

Bright Modern Colors

White has stood the test of time because it’s bright, modern, and clean. If your kitchen is currently any other color than white and you’re looking for something fresh, white is the way to go. Make the kitchen pop by adding a portion of color to your countertops, cabinets, island or even the sink to give your kitchen a high contrast look.

Open Layouts

Don’t be afraid of tearing down walls to make your kitchen less isolated. Open layouts aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. By designing an open kitchen you create a casual yet undivided environment in your house. If you’re looking for easy interaction and effortless entertainment, this is the trend to consider.

Functionality Over Impracticality

Out with the old cabinets and drawers and in with the newer more functional kitchen storage units. You can find many kitchen inspiration ideas and products to choose from when it comes to cabinet doors and drawers. If space is tight, make your kitchen unique with hydraulic, easy-close doors that fold up easily and don’t get in the way.

Bold Fixtures: Permanent and Semi-Permanent

Newer and bolder fixtures are in high demand this year. If you’re afraid of making a permanent fixture swap, like getting a new faucet (it’s a big commitment) then start with semi-permanent fixture changes. You can experiment and start simple:

  • Cabinet Handles and Door Knobs- There are so many choices when it comes to the style and design of this fixture. They are easy to replace and fun to play around with when it comes to mixing and matching.
  • Accessories- Such as vases, wall art, cookbooks, or other decorative items that you can easily switch out.
  • Paint & Backsplash- Re-painting is a painless process if you’re looking to try something new. Removable backsplash is a piece of cake to DIY. Vinyl decals, faux tiles, and wallpaper are removable, easy to put up and take down and give your kitchen an exclusive appearance.

Kitchen Appliances

Upgrading your kitchen appliances might not be in your budget but if you’re ready to make the commitment, the transition and price will probably be worth it. Take a look at some of these trendy new appliances:
