Kitchen Design IdeasLee Johnson
When it comes to designing your kitchen, there are lots of different possibilities and ideas. Everybody has their own specific individual taste that best suit them, something that they like to express these throughout their home. We are firm believers of the idea that the kitchen is a great room in your house to fully express yourself.
If the time has come where you want change, but you’re not sure where to begin in your kitchen – we can help! If you’re looking around trying to decide how drastic of a change you want, or even just trying to think of a starting step, we’ve got some ideas that will hopefully spark your creativity.
The kitchen is where you cook, clean, entertain and socialise, so it is important to create a kitchen design that ticks all these boxes and more.
Here are some ideas to help inspire that creative side of you, with some of the hottest trends happening this year.
With modern kitchens today, an overall linear look is proving to be very popular. We are continuing to see more plain and handless doors, creating a simple yet modern style. Also, with homeowners desiring a look that is more sleek and flexible, the traditional grained timber and timber effects in natural tone are becoming more popular, with an increase in painted colour options.
There’s a rise in popularity of grey, black and white tones in the kitchen. This is due to the fact that these colours can work to varying degrees, whether it’s being used for entire cabinets, worktops, or appliances.
Although black and white have always been popular, the demand for grey products has also increased, and will be a key trend for 2017.
Clutter-free worktops are an emerging trend of late. These allow you to open the space of a kitchen, letting you prepare food on a clear surface. With the options for cabinetry developing, it enables this layout to carry various compartments and shelves for everything from oils to paper towels to tea bags. Also, with clear worktops, it creates an illusion of a much larger kitchen space!
Since last year, the number of individuals upgrading from laminate to quartz has steadily risen. The quality and value of materials is an important consideration and this is imperative when designing your kitchen.
Quartz was previously seen as a luxury kitchen surface, but due to the development of composite surfaces, its opened the possibility of natural stone as an option for the kitchen. This upgrade can greatly increase the grandeur of a room.
An Industrial Look
The industrial design is a style that has grown recently. Being characterised by details such as exposed brick, exposed pipes, rustic metals and minimalist furniture, factory spaces inspire the trend.
This look combines the beauty of materials such as wood, stone, and concrete which advanced engineering creates the innovative finishing and solutions. This look repurposes and redesigns your kitchen.
