It was inevitable that technology would find its way into the kitchen. In this day and age, we are inseparable from our gadgets. Thus, kitchen design has changed to meet our gadgetry needs. At the basic level, modern cabinetry should have a charging station for your range of mobile devices. If you use your smartphone or tablet to follow recipes or watch cooking videos when working; consider installing a docking station or device holder. For really high-tech cabinetry, you can have wireless devices built right into the cabinetry. This may include wireless music speakers, televisions, or a tablet.
To design the perfect kitchen, it is important to understand what is imperative to you and then incorporate the latest trends around that. Here are the 9 hottest trends that will dominate kitchen cabinetry design in 2018.
LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colors and the bulbs last for a really long time. This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance. LED is not the only type of lighting that can be fixed under the cabinet. You could opt for fluorescent fixtures, which are almost as energy efficient as LED and produce minimal heat. Xenon lights give off some heat but they can be dimmed and have an attractive warm glow. You could also go with halogen lights, but this is not always a good idea. They give off too much heat which could affect foods or drinks you have stored inside the cabinet.
There are all kinds of sink and faucet designs to consider–futuristic, vintage, whimsical, luxury etc.
Open kitchen shelves instead of wall cabinetry is becoming an even hotter trend for 2018. While you may find it hard to go without your beloved closed door wall cabinetry, open shelving has plenty of benefits. It introduces a light and airy feel offering the illusion of more space which is especially great in smaller kitchens.
