Top 2018 Kitchen Design Trends
While things are constantly changing in the kitchen and bath industry it seems that the contemporary and modern style is coming in more and more as millennials are starting to get ready to redo their homes. Remember that ultimately you should not be following what everyone else doing. You should do what you truly like and what fits your home and style. We see certain styles becoming more popular in certain areas. However this post is dedicated to the best of 2018 and where we see the industry going... Enjoy!
Open vs Closed Concept
When it comes to redesigning your kitchen, one of the most crucial factors to bear in mind is floor plan. Functionality lies at the core of every kitchen design, so you'll need to carefully consider which floor plan best suits your lifestyle--namely, open concept or closed concept. Here we outline some pros and cons of each style to help you plan the space that's perfect for your family.
When it comes to cabinets, the options seem limitless. Lakeville Kitchen and Bath breaks down the basics to help you decide which cabinet door style and material is right for your kitchen remodeling project!
While cabinets rarely change in a construction sense, styles and colors are constantly changing. In the past, the traditional raised panel in a light or dark stain reigned supreme. However, in the past 5- 10 years we have seen major changes in the industry. Those changes have allowed cabinet manufacturers to do incredible things with paints, acrylic, thermofoil and textured melamine. This article is dedicated to showing you what is available and possible in your kitchen remodel. All of the styles shown here are available and on display at the Lakeville Kitchen and Bath showrooms.
The door styles below are available in Medallion Cabinetry.
