Alexandra Davies from premium kitchen appliance manufacturer Britannia Living tells me which interior design trends we should be incorporating into our kitchen at home.
Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your house, so you’ll want it to look its best. But when it’s time to freshen up your home, how do you know what look to go for? From clutter-free spaces to colourful appliances, I’ll be sharing with you some of this year’s biggest interior design trends that you should be incorporating into your kitchen.
Clutter-free kitchen living
If your kitchen is mainly a functional space, you’ve likely got plenty of appliances and crockery on display. But, as more and more people are incorporating open-plan living into their homes, we’ve seen interior designers opting for more style-focused spaces.
Think concealed appliances and creative storage solutions. These can be anything from tall, flush cupboards to concealed cooker hoods. It’s all about hiding the functionality of your kitchen behind doors to create a seamless flow between the kitchen and living areas.
The key to this trend is staying minimal, so try to keep small appliances and clutter at bay by storing them inside cupboards that blend in with the rest of your cabinetry. This gives your beautiful worktops a chance to shine, so go for something decorative like a marble or quartz counter to get the most out of this look.
For the rest of your décor, try to stick to colours and materials you’d usually find in your living room. This includes stylish timber cabinets made to look more like wardrobes and sideboards rather than kitchen cupboards. Luxurious leather chairs also work really well with this look and help to create a link between your kitchen and living spaces.
Colourful cupboards and appliances
Because you spend so much time in your kitchen, you want it to reflect your personality. As a space that’s traditionally been a place for matching brown cupboards and white appliances, we’re seeing a lot more people going bold in their kitchens trends. This can be as simple as adding a few colourful chairs to your décor. But, if you’re looking to make an impression, think colourful cabinetry in your favourite hue.
If you want to stick with minimalist cupboards and drawers but go bold with your appliances, our Colourange service will allow you to design a colourful range cooker that perfectly reflects your personality.
Mixing the classic with the modern with kitchen trends
Combining classic and modern styles is a trend that has found a place throughout the home, from living rooms through to the kitchen. This kitchen trend really does give you the freedom to make your space as unique as you like. It’s also the perfect way to ensure that your kitchen stays on-trend for years to come.
You could pick modern cabinets and appliances but opt for more traditional furnishings, like velvet chairs reminiscent of the art-deco era. Or, you could go for classic shaker style cabinets and freshen them up with modern leather barstools and minimalist light fixtures.
Adding a chandelier is a great way to inject a more traditional look to your modern kitchen. It’s also the perfect way to add a touch of drama and elegance to your space. Consider installing one above your island for the full effect.
These three kitchen trends are guaranteed to freshen up your kitchen. Whether it’s for entertaining guests or for cooking up some top-quality meals, you can make your space one you’ll never want to leave.
