Kitchens have never been so busy, as we spend more time at home than ever before. The kitchen has become the most multifunctional and used room of any house. From doubling up as open-plan kitchen/dining/living rooms to home offices (mine is on the kitchen table currently!), our kitchens are evolving.
Investing in any element of the kitchen can prove invaluable. Be inspired to make the right style choices for your home, with a look at the latest trends in Kitchen design.
Don’t be afraid to include an island or breakfast bar but try not to make the dimensions too big as it may restrict movement around the kitchen. Opting for an open or floating island will keep all areas accessible and provide additional seating opportunities. The area under the island’s worktop can offer ample space for storage and kitchen.
Shades such as black and dark grey, when used on surfaces such as worktops, floors and splashbacks can be used to make a room feel very inviting. Particularly when combined with textured woods to add a rustic, homely charm.
The trend for combining two colours tn the kitchen cabinetry is set to keep going. It can change the whole feel of the room. Opt for deep, dark units and contrast with brighter shades elsewhere in order to add depth and character to the space.
This trend extends beyond just a contrasting paint colour on the walls. From the cabinets to the worktops, it gives you the freedom to explore different design elements. You can play around with rich textures ie wood, matt finishes or laminate. People have become very adventurous with their splash backs too, making them a feature.
