Open shelves look beautiful in the magazines, but not necessarily a “must-have” for most homeowners. Lets face it, you have to have a matching set of dinnerware or specialty pieces you want on display. But with good organization and the right kind of shelves, you can create a really unique cutting edge style for your kitchen.
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.
We are also seeing a rise of unique and fun faucet designs. A faucet is no longer just a faucet. Though a relatively small component, a unique faucet can add a pop of style or color to your kitchen. Today, faucets come in all shapes, curves, and twists. Pot filler faucets are mounted on the wall with a long arm that can extend over cooktop to fill large pots. Others come with unique spray mechanisms while others are embedded with sensors to get water flowing automatically. You can even expect to see designs that look like they came straight from your favorite restaurant.
Although minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, this year is all about bringing new wild ideas for the heart of the home. With this project, you can choose to express yourself by choosing kitchen cabinet colors that best match your personality.
Green, by nature, is the most calming color in the color wheel. Emerald green, on the other hand, adds boldness to your kitchen cabinets. It encourages reflection, steadfastness, and balance. This kitchen cabinet color will give your home exquisite and precious feels, just like the gem where it got its name.
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.
