ProSource | 12/21/2017 | Product Information

Will 2018 be the year for your kitchen renovation? If so, your timing is excellent. Brilliant color of the year options from the nation’s beloved paint and flooring companies, combined with spectacular new cabinet trends from Echelon, are the perfect ingredients for the ultimate kitchen remodel. We can’t wait to see photos of yours!

Black: Complimenting Cabinets Of Every Design Style

While Pantone is pushing bright Ultra Violet for 2018, Olympic Paint and Glidden Paint are going back to basics… basic black that is.

Olympic Paint and Stain’s Black Magic OL116 is that “overlooked neutral” that helps ground an otherwise too-exposed space. It “perfectly satisfies consumers’ desire for privacy.” In a kitchen, it’s a hue that looks magical on walls, countertops, appliances and, of course, cabinets.

Glidden Paint’s Deep Onyx OONN 07/000 is a no-fuss black that encourages a “less is more” approach to home improvement products. The color experts at Glidden say Deep Onyx pairs beautifully with dark and stormy grays, greens, and even browns.

Jami Harmon, Director of Marketing for Echelon Cabinetry encourages homeowners to choose colors and finishes wisely and says, “A kitchen remodel is expensive, so you need to make sure it’s something you love and want to live with for a number of years.”

For kitchen styles from rustic to contemporary, a neutral palette makes sense. The off-white and gray cabinet finishes from Echelon blend seamlessly with the subtle and classic Black Magic or Deep Onyx for a calm, easygoing aesthetic. Or, let your neutral kitchen provide an excellent backdrop for pops of new colors that will inevitably trend over the coming years.

Teal In The Kitchen? You Bet!

Sherwin Williams’s 2018 color of the year is Oceanside SW 6496, a rich blend of blue and green jewel tones. Chelsea L. Allard, senior project designer for Case Design/Remodeling in Charlotte, describes Oceanside as a color that is “vivid” yet has a “sophistication that makes it versatile.”

While the color looks majestic on a front door or meditative in a home office, it looks positively breathtaking in the kitchen. You could put Oceanside on the walls or trim, but it would make a truly impressive statement on a kitchen island.

The quality cabinet finishes offered by Echelon make it easy to create such a colorful focal point. In a beautifully designed modern farmhouse kitchen, unexpected colors – like Oceanside – come together to create a space you’ll never want to leave.

Choosing the right combination of foundation and island cabinets can be overwhelming, but there is help. ProSource Wholesale® showrooms let you see first-hand what colors will look like together, and design assistance is available when you need a hand pulling it all together.

Red Adds Energy And Life To A Kitchen

Benjamin Moore selected Caliente AF-290, a spicy red that’s “full of energy,” for its 2018 color of the year. And that’s good news for homeowners who know how to make red work in a kitchen.

Caliente is a spectacular backdrop for classic white cabinets – whether they’re sleekly transitional or classically traditional. Benjamin Moore describes it as nostalgic yet fresh and dramatic, making it an excellent choice for any design style: modern, beach, transitional, and beyond.

And no matter what style your kitchen cabinets are on the outside, how they function on the inside is what makes your space unique to you. Echelon Cabinetry knows what it takes to make a kitchen functional. Standard high-end cabinets can be customized – with self-closing hinges or specialized organizational solutions – to make your life easier!

It’s All In The Details: Cabinet Hardware Color Trends

Shaw Floors has joined the color of the year game with its 2018 pick: Gold Rush. The silver-nickel-chrome trend of the 1990s and early 2000s is coming to an end, and gold is back in style. And for good reason, according to Debbie Houston, creative director for Shaw Floors, who says, “Golden hues evoke positivity, excitement, and sophistication.”

Start with one of the above colors of the year (on your walls, countertop, tile backsplash). Select the cabinet colors and finishes that best fit your design goals. Add gold details: cabinet knobs, drawer pulls, faucets, or even gold countertops!
