You should know by now just how popular it is to be green and eco-friendly and it’s a trend that should be encouraged. Materials such as reclaimed wood are becoming a popular choice for countertops, cabinets and shelves. Unlike natural stone, wood is renewable, but reclaimed wood is even better for the environment. Reclaimed wood is sustainable, eco-friendly and cheap which makes it suitable for all budgets. It also has a certain charm and personality because of its history and it fits perfectly into any rustic kitchen.

If you’re looking for a hot color choice for your kitchen, opt for two-toned designs and warm dark color pallets. Colors such as ginger, clay, copper and gold will be seen everywhere next year. Nature will have a strong influence on kitchen colors, so you can opt for all sorts of green and earthy hues. Also, dark bold colors are still going strong and will be trendy in the future. However, the star of 2018 will probably be blue and all its shades. It will be seen in everything from cabinets and islands to shelves, chairs and appliances. But, you must be careful with blues. They tend to give every space a certain vintage and rustic feel, no matter how contemporary and high-tech your kitchen is. So, if you prefer a more modern look, it’s best to avoid this color.

Transitional kitchens are super interesting and many people decide to incorporate the transitional style into their homes. It offers a great variety of materials, textures and colors, and includes the mixture of vintage and contemporary elements. The combination of styles and elements allows you to experiment with tradition and modernity which many people want. For instance, you can have a trendy urban apartment and a rustic kitchen with natural and traditional features, or opt for a sleek modern kitchen for your vintage home. Feel free to combine contemporary and fashionable designer lighting fixtures and high-tech appliances like those from Maytag with natural and rustic style arrangement of wood and ceramic tiles. Even though this trend is relatively new, we can expect to see it more and more in 2018 and upcoming years.
