Kitchens have evolved into a multi-functional room—a meal preparation station, a place to dine, an entertainment space—and the need for storage for everything required. Achieve your desired purpose and design with this year’s highly coveted features.

 

New Metal Finishes

From cabinet hardware to faucets, popular choices are leaning toward matte black, such as the Nouveau II knob from Top Knobs, or the Modern & Clean knob from Atlas.

Gaining momentum as well is a brushed gold tone, like the Sea Grass knob from Amerock.

Also on the upward trend path is mixing metals, from cabinet hardware to faucets to lighting. While the finishes may seem to contrast, it creates a complementary look.





 

Tailored Shiplap

What was out (or outside) is now in… and inside. Shiplap typically lived on the outside before moving indoors as a design component.

Lately, it has become a desired option beyond walls, moving to other locales such as kitchen islands and range hoods.

This look can be complemented, or simulated, in cabinetry with styles such as Lynnville from Kemper, Simsbury from Decorá, and Cayman from Omega.

 


Quartz Countertops

The benefits of quarts make it a top choice in 2018. It’s durable, resists stains, is highly hygienic, and provides multiple looks that mimic real stone.

Silestone offers several tantalizing options such as the Basiq Series or Nebula Series.

This trend is not likely to fade anytime soon, meaning it will last as long as the counters do.





 

Dimensional Finish

With cabinetry, there’s a growing interest in showcasing dimensional movement and dramatic texture.

This look is represented by Marquis from Decorá and Croydon from Omega.

As mid-century modern and contemporary designs make a push in 2018, having cleaner lines and a minimalist appearance is key.

 



Kitchen Storage Innovation

Everything has its place, especially in the kitchen. Maintaining a clean look means keeping items tucked away, yet ensuring they’re accessible when needed.

Top cabinet storage features include drawers that are both deep and wide, base trash cabinets, accessibility-boosting pull-outs and roll trays, corner cabinets, cutlery drawers, and pantry cabinets. Coffee lovers also revel in drawers to house their K-cups.

Solutions for all hideaway necessities can be achieved through cabinetry from leading brands such as Kemper, Schrock, Decorá, and Omega.




 

Relax and Enjoy These 2018 Bathroom Remodeling Trends

Perhaps the most widely used room, bathrooms are more than merely functional. They can serve as a place to prep for the day (or night), and act as a destination to escape and relax. The hottest trends in 2018 ensure any need is met.

 

Lighted Mirrors

Reflect on this -- vanity mirrors are illuminating bathrooms with innovative light features. 

Whether embedded above, behind, around or within the mirror itself, bright solutions for bathroom lighting are on trend in 2018.

A spotlight shines upon Fleurco, which enhances the grooming process. Discover mirror technology with a targeted area for a fog-free reflection. Plus LED lighting that provides energy efficiency and avoids giving you a shadow appearance.





 

Spa Inspired Showers and Tubs

Experiencing an oasis doesn’t need to require a vacation or a trip to the spa. Showers and tubs continue to evolve into getaways from the trials and tribulations of daily life. 

Relaxation comes in many forms—whether from a standing position under a rainfall shower head or taking it lying down in a soaking tub.

ProSource Wholesale showrooms carry the industry’s leading brands, with tranquil appeal to wash away daily worries.

 

 

 

Bathroom Storage Innovation

In most bathrooms, space is a at a premium.

So it’s no surprise that 2018 trends call for innovative techniques for tucking away the essentials, while ensuring they’re accessible when needed.

From vanities to medicine cabinets and more, even the smallest of rooms can showcase big storage ideas from industry leaders such as Kemper, Decorá and Omega.
