The beginning of a New Year brings along with it, new trends set and adopted by designers and architects around the world. For 2018, we expect bolder interior design projects compared to 2017. Kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms will become more audacious without going out of style.
Bathrooms and kitchens will get more colorful, right from the cabinetry to the sink materials. MA Allen commented in his Wall Street Journal article: “The all-white kitchen is such a classic, it’s hard to say it’s peak, but in 2018 I think people will want a more unique look of their own.”. Wood warm tones match perfect with red or cobalt blue stoves, bronze or copper faucets and granite or marble basins. Lamia Benhida confirms it in an Index Exhibition article: “In architecture, as in interior design and furnishing, nobility and robustness will be in the frontline. Bronze, concrete, marble and massive wood will be unavoidable.”
Now all these can contrast with minimal designs too. Matte black finishes will perfectly match with concrete, massive wood, copper and bronze. At Houzz idea books for 2018, Mitchell Parker says “Last year, satin brass made its takeover of kitchens. This year, look out for matte black in bathrooms as well as kitchens. Homeowners looking for a statement-making look that’s contemporary and complements a variety of materials and styles are embracing this tough, versatile finish.”
Sustainability is also one of the concepts that’s attracting attention in 2018. The definition of sustainability has evolved over the last few years with the usage of such products, to accommodate terms like security, safety and comfort. 2018 is predicted to be the year where sustainability and minimal design will be at the forefronts.
And it is on this premise that our team has picked a bunch of trend-setter products for your interior design projects that you have vowed to finish in 2018, with quality and sophistication.
