When it comes to designing your new kitchen, you may already know exactly what you want. However, if you are unsure about the style it may be helpful to take into consideration recent design trends. There are many classic styles that will stand the test of time as well as new and exciting designs that will impress guests. You can go all out or simply incorporate a few touches into your current kitchen, whatever suits you best.
The Brighter the Better
Colour blocking is a trend that has taken the fashion world by storm, featuring on the catwalk for designers such as Victoria Beckham, Versace and Chanel. This idea has developed and is now extremely popular with home interiors especially kitchens as there are so many ways to include colour into the heart of the home. Worktops, tiles, splashbacks and accessories can all bring in colour to the room and accent certain features. Colours such as lime and fuchsia are big hits this season and will add a unique aspect to your home.
With technology developing at the speed of light, there are now a huge amount of appliances to cater for your every need in the kitchen. Dishwashers can save you bags of time especially if you have a large family, and for occasions such as Christmas dinner when you seem to use every piece of cutlery and crockery in the house. You could also invest in a high-tech oven with side by side and a grill so that you can cater for all your guests during dinner parties.
Style Meets Function
A third trend that is growing increasingly popular mixes style with functionality. For instance, an island is a highly desirable addition to a kitchen so that you can entertain whilst preparing meals. There are now many options such as hidden draws, appliances which are stored within the island and can be revealed at the touch of a button, and also including a hob into the island. All of these ideas are becoming far more affordable and will intrigue your friends and family for years to come.
