Every year homeowners focus on ways to refresh their spaces, and the kitchen is likely part of the plan. The following design trends are worth keeping on the radar.
1. Colour Pop.
Kitchens are rife with colour opportunities, from appliances and flooring, to window treatments and cabinets. Choosing a colour is such a personal experience – in fact no one knows for sure whether we all even see the myriad shades in the same way.
2. Pewter and Gunmetal Hardware.
Inspired by hotel and retail spaces, this adds to the overall bold statements many want to make their homes, forging minimalism that was popular in past years. Some examples of using pewter and gunmetal hardware are replacing kitchen upper cabinets with colour pop, wood or glass shelving.
3. Digital Technology.
Digital technology will continue to drive innovations and new pleasures in the kitchen, giving homeowners ever more specific home appliances targeted to their tastes. Wi-Fi-enabled espresso makers can prepare your morning cappuccino before you even get out of bed, and wine technology is evolving from big wine fridges to restaurant-quality single pour preservation systems.
4. Larder Love.
Larder cupboards, sometimes known as pantry cupboards, have been kitchen staples for centuries, in the last few years have established themselves as one of the must-have items in modern homes. Having a larder makes perfect sense. All the food goods are in one place and not scattered around numerous wall cupboards, meaning people can be more organised when doing their food shopping.
5. Open Shelving.
In years to come, we will continue to see traditional elements and forms in harmony with modern design. Think honed, natural stone, organic basalt tiles, hand-wrapped rattan furniture, and vintage-inspired fixtures and lighting.
6. Integrated Appliances.
You no longer need to see appliances sticking out everywhere anymore and that’s the new face of luxury. In the years to come, we will continue to see integrated appliances. Some examples are, induction cooktop continues to be increasingly popular because of its seamless look.
Whether your to-do-list includes a full kitchen renovation or a few minimal updates, with cool new kitchen brands popping up and lots of innovative designs in showrooms across the country, there are plenty of on-trend looks and state-of-the-art appliances to choose from.
