Davies Design and Construction on Kitchen Design Ideas and Trends for 2018

Cooking up Kitchen design ideas for your dream home.

A dream home is somewhere that you can entertain close friends and family, and it all starts in the kitchen! Because let's be honest, the way to everyone’s heart is through food, and who doesn’t love to eat?

If you’re going to be spending time in a kitchen, you might as well make it an amazing space to hang out. It is more than just a place to make a meal - it should provide plenty of storage, be functional and aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Here are our top Kitchen Design trends for 2018:

Kitchen design idea #1

Stripping it back with raw timber

If you are planning on setting up shop for a while, raw timber is a great investment because it goes with just about everything! A feature colour on your countertops, colourful appliances, floral wall decor... almost anything can be complemented by raw timber. Victorian Ash or White Oak are a popular timber choice, featuring unpolished edges to give a natural finish. In 2018, the big kitchen design idea is to use raw timber not just as countertops but also for cupboards, draw faces and splashbacks to give your kitchen style a fresh look and feel. There is a catch with this kitchen design idea, quality finishes is key for a lasting effect, that’s where Davies Construction can come into the scene.

Kitchen design idea #2

Go for gold!

Gold tones are making a statement this year paired with other materials such as timbers, concrete and marble for a kitchen style that will not be forgotten quickly! A gold sink, tap or handles are the way to go if you want a more subtle brass tone, however the bolder kitchen design might sport gold kitchen doors. Sounds crazy right? But if fitted correctly and using quality materials, it can be the green envy of your friends.

Kitchen design idea #3

The khaki trend

Speaking of being green with envy, kitchens are now joining in on the khaki trend. Not only are we now wearing khaki everywhere in the form of winter coats, pants and shirts, we are now dressing our kitchens in the same colour tones. Matchy matchy! Make a statement with kitchen doors, light shades or if you're feeling like you need an extra punch of calmness in your kitchen space, maybe even splash back tiles! Like we said, it brings a sense of calmness to a space and looks great with any finishes, but our favourite colour to match the new khaki trend is white, timber and white marble. Daring but delicious when pulled off with the right carpenter.

Our last top kitchen design trend for 2018

Drum roll…it’s printed tiles! And no, we are definitely not heading back into the 50’s but rather a more modern era of kitchen design. Printed lino, tiles and splashbacks are making a comeback and they look GREAT! You either love it or hate it, but we are fans.
