Simple, functional, high quality and modern are the biggest focuses when it comes to the luxury kitchen trends of 2018. Based on the extensive surveys done by Houzz, in 2018 we can expect to see more homeowners concerned with organizing and decluttering their kitchen counters.
Many consumers reported that they were looking for more than a few small changes. Almost 50% of those interviewed said they wanted to complete a full, luxury kitchen remodel. The layout was a particular point of interest, with a majority looking to move to an L-shaped kitchen.

Technology In The Kitchen
