It’s always so exciting to see what the latest kitchen color trends are for each upcoming year.

This year is no different. The most exciting and popular color is going to stick around for a while too. Say buh-bye to white and black kitchens!

Kitchen Color Trendy

There is nothing like a spotless, white kitchen or a sleek, black design; unless that is, if you have one with at least a splash of color, to really bring out the contrast between the monotone and the hue.

It appears that 2018 is the year of kitchen colors, as consumers and designers alike are moving away from the beauty of monotone kitchens and are embracing stunning kitchen color ideas.

Grey is Getting a Makeover

It might not be the first color that comes to mind but grey is really in vogue at the moment, as demonstrated in the various 2018 color collections by well-renown kitchen suppliers.

Terms like, ‘concrete’ and ‘cloud’ are turned on their head, and will not only make you think again about kitchen colors but will also allow you to appreciate this often overlooked and underestimated alternative to black or white.

The dashing finish on these 2018 kitchen color releases is providing something different and distinctive, giving a unique attractiveness that is enthusing consumers up and down the UK.

Stand Out in Style

More adventurous consumers and designers are going to the other end of the spectrum, picking out the most impactful of kitchen colors, including deep, passionate red cabinetry contrasting a black backsplash and stainless steel worktops.

A mélange of red, white and baby blue cabinetry contrasting white walls, worktop, and light grey marble floors have really demonstrated how kitchen color trends have gone ‘all out’ this year, with childlike fun being put back into interior kitchen design.

Wooden It Be Nice

It also appears that wood-dominated kitchens, finished off with a drop of color, can really make an impact in any space. Kitchens with natural wood floors, an adjoining table-island finish, with its requisite wooden seating, is really benefiting from brown leather cabinetry and ice white kitchen worktops.

In contrast, a more cherry-colored wood really provides a welcoming feel, reflecting natural light beautifully, as it contrasts with a lighter-colored wooden or laminate flooring.

Top off the look with a blue-grey kitchen worktop, and the contrast of colors and textures really start to complement each other. These kitchen colors work together especially well to give a retro-70s look that is so relevant today.

Versatile in Grey

Referencing once more the option of a subtle concrete pallet, it is not just focused on beautiful greys but also provides lighter, refined options for kitchen colors.

These greys provide a gentler version that warms up a wood finish worktop or gives a subtle hint of color to white cabinetry.

These beautiful kitchen colors make me want to update my kitchen with a new color too!

These concrete-colored inspirations excel with either a jet black or sunflower yellow backsplash, or alternatively, can benefit from a mid-dark green surround, which really brings out the color.

The Finishing Touch

Maybe it’s a sign of positivity in 2018 Britain, but it seems that contrast of colorful kitchens is here to stay this year.

Whether kitchen designers or consumers are looking for a classic ‘country kitchen’ vibe, with pastel-colored, wooden cabinetry, in yellows or blues, adorned with a wood or even granite worktop, or even a scarlet red for drawer fronts and backsplash against a black quartz worktop, there is nothing off-limits.

That said, the monochrome kitchen is far from dead, and a snow-white selection of cabinetry and backsplash can be beautifully finished off with a drop of grey in the quartz or granite worktops, which are really brought out by the subtle contrast.

The latest kitchen color and material trends tend to change from year to year – with muted tones and emerald greens all the rage right now. These can be applied to walls, cabinet doors and furniture too depending on their finish of course.

The message for 2018 kitchen consumers is, don’t be black or white, think in shades of grey.

All these beautiful kitchen color trends are so exciting and inspiring! It always pays to do the research when it comes to the latest kitchen color. A well-planned kitchen is always a great way to get started in your journey to that perfect kitchen decor!
