While appliances may not be the first thing you think of when considering kitchen design trends, the appliances you choose can play a huge part in the overall aesthetic of your home. As such, appliances need to look the part in order to add a fresh and contemporary feel to your kitchen rather than distracting from it. Here are a few design trends that are proving to be popular in 2018!

Custom Integration

Today’s contemporary kitchens often aim to create a clean, custom look and appliance manufacturers have answered by offering an every growing selection of panel ready appliances that can blend right into your cabinetry. You can opt for a complete panel ready appliance that disappears into the cabinetry, but we love this Sub-Zero option that features hardware and a glass panel door. You still know where the fridge is, but you get the custom, integrated look at the same time!

Black Finishes

This year, kitchen color trends seem to err on the side of dark and moody and appliances are no exception. Black finishes and black stainless steel are a refreshing change, to say the least. This 30-inch M-Series Contemporary Built-in Wall Oven (shown above) by Wolf, boasts several impressive features, including contemporary styling options. This particular model is available in black glass and stainless options.

Double Ovens 

It seems that the idiom, two is better than one, rings true for ovens in 2018. Double ovens reign superior over their singular counterparts, for enthusiastic home cooks in particular. A double oven affords users the opportunity to perform multiple cooking functions at once, or cook double the amount, making it a great product for homeowners who love to entertain.

Retro Vibes

Silver and black are hardly your only color options when it comes to appliances. For a fresh and unexpected take on appliances, progressive homeowners are opting for pinks, greens, blues, and other pastel hues. In conjunction with rounded shapes like those offered by the SMEG collection, pastels lend appliances a cool, retro feel. It’s a style choice that certainly makes a statement!
