The kitchen and bathroom are often key rooms to update or remodel, especially when it comes to getting a good ROI (Return on Investment). Whether you are just looking for a way to perk up your existing home, or getting ready to sell and thinking about renovating for a more profit, the following Kitchen and Bath trends are worth looking into as some of the latest trends in home design for the coming year.
No more Granite – For years a popular trend in kitchens and baths was beautiful granite counter tops. Granite is now on the way out. The current trend is moving towards quartz with its varied options and durability, this material makes for a great choice. If you are getting ready to list your home, quartz countertops could be the way to go as they are sure to be on many buyers’ wish lists.
Stone Sinks While the traditional porcelain options will always be a classic choice, stone options present a fresh choice. With so many choices of shape, size, and color, these sinks create a great statement piece. Some of these beautiful creations even are hand-carved. They can also add in a different texture to your kitchen and bath; texture is one of the big buzz-words in 2018 design trends. With different textures, you can create a new look and excellent conversation points too, ideal if you are planning to sell soon.
Cabinet Choices – The trends in cabinet choices for 2018 may not be surprising to some. The trend is leaning towards 2-tone cabinets, where the bottom set is a different shade from the top. Another popular choice is bleached cabinets in a light wood shade, moving away from wood of darker colors.
Bold Color – Do you like bold color? Well good news, another trend is to use bold colored cabinets or appliances in your kitchen. Shades of blue seem to be the color of choice. If going with a bold color in cabinets or appliances seems too daring for you, colored tile is also in. Adding a colored backsplash to your kitchen or bath is the perfect way to add a splash of color without going over the top.
Textured Tile – Maybe you like the idea of a bold style in your kitchen and bath but none of these other options seem like a great fit? Then textured tile may be an ideal choice. These beautiful options are like no other and come in some exciting patterns. These tiles have designs which are raised on the tile and help to create a 3d look on your backsplash.
