Interior Design Ideas for 2018

With remodel and building season right around the corner, we have put together a few interior design ideas that are expected to take hold throughout 2018:

  1. Fewer stainless steel sinks. More people are moving away from stainless steel and choosing granite or composite sinks for their kitchens. These sinks are extremely durable and can withstand heat up to 536 degrees. The Silgranit collection from Blanco offers eight different colors that look great with many different countertops.

  2. Matte Surfaces. Leathered granite and honed quartz are gaining interest because of their matte finish. This finish adds a nice texture to the countertops, which is also useful in hiding fingerprints and dust. Another reason stones with a matte finish are becoming more common is because it creates a more modern feel to the space, which is a look that more people aim for today. However, one thing to keep in mind is that although polished quartz products do not typically need to be sealed, the honed quartz products will need to be honed just like granite.

  3. Warmer Colors in Kitchens. While we still expect to see white kitchens, there has been a trend towards warmer colors in the kitchen. Darker cabinets, even when paired with white countertops, add really nice contrast with the rest of the kitchen. Take a look at our kitchen visualizer to compare different cabinet colors and countertop options to see what a difference it can make! (http://www.italianmarbleinc.com/kitchen-visualizer/)

  4. Functional Laundry Rooms. Another emerging trend is renovating laundry rooms to make them a more functional space. Adding cabinets and countertops gives you more space to fold and sort clothing. This also creates more storage, and who doesn't need more of that? Pictured below is a laundry room installed recently.
