Kitchen Trends of 2018

It is widely accepted that the kitchen is the ‘hub’ of a home. We prepare our food there, eat our food there, and everyone seems to gravitate towards the kitchen whenever there is a social gathering. It is important, therefore, that our kitchen is not only functional, but it is also aesthetically pleasing.

With that in mind, you’ll probably be wondering what you can do to keep your kitchen ‘on trend’. It is fair to say that kitchen trends come and go with the seasons. Thankfully, we’re kitchen experts here at Used Kitchen Hub so if you’re thinking of investing in a used kitchen, or even an ex-display kitchen, then here are some tips to help you spruce up your space and keep it in line with current kitchen trends.

You know how handles can make areas look a little ‘fussy’ at times? Well, getting rid of the handles from your kitchen will make it look sleek and ergonomic. Designers like Poggenpohl started this particular kitchen trend back in the 70s, but it is making a resurgence this year as customers seek a sleeker finish.

A key up and coming trend for kitchens is the use of muted colours. 2018 will see customers choosing white, grey and black tones for their kitchenware, and for the kitchen furniture itself. These tones should be embraced in your kitchen if you want it to look ‘upto-the-minute’. Bright colours out, muted colours in. Grey saw a huge increase in sales in 2017. 2018 looks set to make it an even more popular colour.

Kitchen technology has become more and more advanced over the years but now, with the introduction and overwhelming popularity of smart tech, it is unavoidable that consumers would want to introduce that into their kitchen. Who doesn’t want to wake up in the morning and turn the coffee machine on from the comfort of their bed?! The inclusion of items like integrated speaker systems in kitchens also means that the home’s ‘party room’ just turned it up a notch.
