Kitchen Trends for 2018
We love designing kitchens and now is a great time as there are so many gorgeous trends that we can’t wait to introduce to our customers.
In general terms, the look is bolder with a move towards dark colours, particularly in the ever popular shades of grey. Metallic and the industrial look will continue to be popular with concrete worktops, copper accessories and rose gold. The latest worktops can look just like concrete and be used for matching end panels for a coordinated look. Copper handles matched with light fittings add an extra sparkle and rose gold is now starting to be introduced for items such as taps.
The desire for a flat painted finish is accelerating with many opting for a simpler variation on the classic shaker door. There is a trend for less fussy details and a modern palette of colours so that this look can be used successfully in both traditional and contemporary homes.
Designs are more flexible and open plan, with shelving to show off nice pieces and dressers and pantries making a comeback.
The living kitchen is still top of everyone’s wish list so there is plenty of demand still for kitchen islands. Where space does not allow for an island then a peninsula with stools can provide a space for socialising and tea breaks!
Lighting has always been important, but even more emphasis will be placed on kitchen lighting in 2018. We can add so many layers of mood and task lighting, from LED strips on shelves to down lighters and ceiling pendants.
If you are dreaming of a new kitchen for next year why not take a look at our galleries here on the website – better still book an appointment and make 2018 the year of the beautiful kitchen for you.
