The Most Shared Kitchen Photo of 2018

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR(R) Magazine

Of the 17 million professional photos of home interiors and exteriors on Houzz, it was this photo of a gray and walnut kitchen that captured the most attention over the year:

The kitchen was designed by Justin and Tyler Sachs of Stonington Cabinetry & Designs. The kitchen features a combination of gray and white accents and warm wood, like the walnut on the island, vent hood, and open shelving.

“Though white cabinets are still a favorite, gray is now the top wall color choice,” says Houzz editor and writer Gwendolyn Purdom. “Renovating homeowners are also opting for features such as Shaker-style cabinets, L-shaped layouts and engineered quartz counters more than in years past—and this kitchen highlights all three.”

  1. I absolutely love this kitchen, it’s no wonder it was shared so much. I’m hesitant to show the wife it may lead to a remodel.

  2. It’s not surprising why this kitchen is the most shared photo. Wise use of designs, materials, and textures. Undeniably a great selling point!
