Our Favourite Kitchen Design Trends


Whilst it may be seen by some to be simply a place to cook, the kitchen can be a centrepiece for design in the home and a perfect chance to add real style in any property. Over the years we have seen the overall look of kitchens vary and now the room for individuality when it comes to your kitchen is larger than ever. In this blog we are going to be sharing just some of our favourite kitchen design trends!



Whilst moving away from your traditional kitchen appliances can be tough, the addition of newer technologies can both make life easier in the kitchen and also add a much more contemporary aesthetic in the room. The possibilities are endless these days with products such as Wi-Fi enabled espresso makers which can prepare your morning cappuccino or touch screen refrigerators that allow you to keep track of the groceries inside.


Stylish, Clever Storage

There is nothing more stressful than a cluttered kitchen so we absolutely love the current trend of people opting to go for smarter storage options. Many of these modern products are as stylish as they are practical. Curved cupboards and sliding doors provide the perfect solution to keep your worktop clear for preparing food in an organised manor.


The Use of Wood

One trend which has really took off over the last few years is the use of wood in kitchens to create a welcoming environment. Wood is so ideal because of it’s neutral colour and texture, meaning it can suit any style. In a world where home interiors are becoming more modern by the minute, it can be a unique addition to bring a touch of the outdoors in.
