What Are The Trending Colors For Kitchen Backsplashes in 2018?

The trending colors for kitchen backsplashes in 2018 allow you to add those pops of color you might want to incorporate into your kitchen design. Although neutrals (grey, white, beige, greige) are still prevalent, tiles are now available in a host of colors, patterns, designs, and metallic finishes, allowing you to inject your personality into your overall vision for your kitchen.  Pantone sets the color trends for each season of every year, and is closely followed by both the fashion and home interior industries. Ultimately, these are the colors we see in the marketplace and influence our purchases.

Pantone Color Of The Year: Ultra Violet

A variety of shades of purple colors are what you’re going to see in the marketplace. Bolder shades are on trend; however, neutrals will always prevail, especially when paired with natural stones such as marble, granite, as well as quartz counter-tops and stainless appliances in traditional and transitional interior designs. More avant-garde and contemporary designs accommodate these bolder, fashion forward color trends.  Almost Mauve is a color that is complimentary to almost all skin tones, and is an excellent color for bathrooms and master bedrooms, as well as look great with natural stone counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. It has a subtlety that will have mass appeal for resale.

There are psychological reasons behind our color choices.  Colors affect both our mood as well as our senses for depth and scale. For example, a room painted in a dark color appears smaller than a room of the same size painted in a light color.  Through the use of psychology, impeccable color selection can be made for your kitchen. Red arouses the appetite.  A back-splash of red tiles will stimulate your desire to eat.  In warmer climates, cooler colors, such as blues and greens, will make the kitchen feel cooler.  The reverse is true of cooler climates.  Warmer colors, such as reds, yellows, and oranges, will warm up the kitchen.
