Timeless design is a bend of how your home looks, feels and functions (instead of trying to keep up with the latest trends). As we move into 2018, here are some tips on commonly remodeled parts of the house: the kitchen and the bathroom as predicted by Houzz:
Sinks: While porcelain will continue to be popular in bathrooms, there is a strong movement towards stone sinks in bathrooms. In the kitchen, stainless sinks appear to be on their way out. Expect to see more kitchen sinks made of stone, concrete and even copper. There will be more concrete, stone, copper and granite composite sinks in darker hues of gray, bronze or black. It brings back a feeling of simpler times that can be calming in a home environment.
Different colored kitchen cabinets: The trend is toward having upper cabinets in one color with lower cabinets in a contracting or complementary color (often tied together with the backsplash).
Tile: White subway tiles appears to be headed underground but tiles with intriguing designs, colors and patterns are in.
Kitchen Lighting: Kitchen lighting choices will vary depending on the style of kitchen. However, vintage style pendant light seems to be increasingly popular. Vintage light fixtures such as sconces, lanterns, pendants and chandeliers are making a come back as a crafty home do-it-yourselfers outfit retro fixtures with new technology.
More color in kitchens. Although white will always be a classic color for kitchen design, homeowners are shying away from bland hues and injecting rich colors such as warm wood tones - mahogany and neutrals - grays and blues.
