As 2017 slowly cycles down we seriously should take a look at what the trends in home renovations will be for 2018. While no one can accurately predict what the ‘latest and greatest’ trends will be for every community, we certainly can look into what the manufacturers are suggesting and build off of that.
Granite is out
It had to happen sooner or later. Granite has been the go to countertop material for a long time but it appears that that trend is out for 2018.

Finally, things are moving away from the all white kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

You can even mix it up a bit and go with a two tone look you trend setter you.
Got the Blues?
For kitchens and bathrooms there is a real feel for using blues. Navy blue and darker blues are being used on everything from cabinets to appliances. If it makes sense to some of the other features in the home you could even go with some lighter blue, violet or even purple tones. Just be sensible, don’t over due it.
While blue will be the biggest winner for 2018 in terms of colors, let us not discount some of the other colors for everything from faucets to sinks.
