For many of us, the kitchen is the most important room in the house. Here, we chat, eat, catch up and spend time together. If you’re planning to update or renovate your kitchen, you may be looking for inspiration. In this case, look no further. Here are some of this season’s hottest kitchen trends to get you thinking and help you plan the kitchen of your dreams.
White kitchens revamped
White is a really popular shade for the kitchen, but this season, it’s had a revamp. Softer pastels are a great alternative if you’re looking for a more homey feel. White can be clinical, so go for duck egg blue, gray or pale green. Keep things light and maximize space with white accessories. If you’re painting the walls gray, for example, white vases, storage tins, and plant pots will look fantastic.
Storage problems sussed
Nobody wants to wade through piles of clutter to get to the kitchen counter. Today, we often use kitchens for many purposes. By the end of the day, we may be surrounded by pots and pans, homework books and toys. Thankfully, storage problems are a thing of the past thanks to innovative solutions. If you’re using a kitchen designer to plan your new kitchen, investigate pull-out drawers and folding shelves. You can choose everything from your kitchen drawer runners to the type of shelves you have, so explore all the options. You’ll be amazed at what you can do even in a tiny kitchen. Make use of your wall space and height of the room. Wall-mounted cabinets are excellent for storing food and pots and pans. If you’re into the country look, hang pans or utensils from wall hooks.
Brass and bronze are back
For years, kitchen designs have focused heavily on stainless steel appliances, fixtures, and fittings. This season, there’s an 80’s revival and bronze and brass are back. These materials look great with solid wood worktops and retro shades like coral and turquoise. Copper is also incredibly popular, and it’s a fantastic choice for autumn. You can embrace this trend very easily with touches like colored kettles, key holders, and spice racks.
Grow your own
Plants are everywhere this year, and the kitchen is an excellent place to add some greenery. You can scatter houseplants around shelves and surfaces or try and grow your own herbs. Plants make your rooms look fresh and clean, and they also have benefits for your health. Plants clean the air, and they’re also proven to boost your mental health. If you’re not a green-fingered maestro, you’ll find some really useful tips and hints online.
