In this DeVol kitchen marble countertops with light patterns are combined with stylish reclaimed wood cabinets with vintage presence all sustained in mild and neutral color palette that expresses freshness and ease. When it comes to modern kitchen design, trendy choices and innovative solutions the countertops of your kitchen arrangement need to be responsive not only to the style you choose but also to offer durability, functionalism and suitable appearance. So here are some summonses of the hottest and trendy materials for next year – design combinations that answer to style and quality requirements simultaneously.
Quartz is attractive for its durability and its consistent color characteristics. Quartz offer impressive color selection in white, black or gray hues and are peaking up speed as a popular and functional choice in modern kitchen design. Granite remains high on the list of trendy kitchen countertops for 2018. Granite is often cited as the most durable natural material available and is known for resisting cracks and chips well. Hot pots can be placed directly on the countertop, you can cut right on the surface without damage, and spills wipe away easily.
The other tendency this season are the opposite design methods – using high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces the designers create large and massive volumes with shining surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in those cases, they are used more as additions and artistic details not as a leading material selection. Dark colors and contrast are also eminent. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
The number you should keep in mind is 42 inches -that is the minimum amount of space you must have between the unit and any surrounding objects. Here is the place to consider what your countertop island will be used for – will it be a space for preparing meals, or for casual dining. You, of course, can combine both; the design could include a 36-inch-high work countertop for food preparation and a 42-inch-high bar for the meals. And also you can have multiple islands and each can be devoted to a different set of activities.
