With Christmas fast approaching, many of us will be thinking of ways to update our kitchens so we can impress our friends and family when they arrive for the celebrations. We know how hard it can be to keep up to date with the design trends as they’re constantly changing, so we’ve compiled a list of a few to help you out:
It’s now a trend to add a touch of comfort to your kitchen seating, enabling your space to be more inviting and comfortable, which is perfect if you like to use your kitchen as a space for socialising. There’s an array of choices out there when opting for more comfortable seating, whether it be an upholstered bench, cushioned leather seats, built-in banquettes, and more. This type of seating is also great for adding a statement piece to your kitchen without having to redecorate your whole room.
Wooden features are always popular when it comes to winter kitchen trends as they add an extra touch of warmth to any room. Our range of solid wood worktops are a wonderful addition to any kitchen, whether you keep it traditional with our maple worktops or a more unique look with our farmhouse oak stave worktops. Even better, solid wood worktops go with almost any kitchen style, so don’t be worried about ruining the look of your kitchen if you want to keep up with the trends.
Lighting has now become a prominent design feature that can add a personal, unique touch to any room and update the look of your kitchen. Lighting can add a cosy atmosphere to your room, or become a prominent, statement feature that overlooks your kitchen, even some simple string lights can add a touch of Christmas glitter and sparkle to your kitchen. Whatever you decide upon, lighting is a great way to highlight the look of your kitchen.
A selection of colours is now appropriate for your kitchen walls, within reason of course. If you can’t decide upon one colour for your kitchen, then try combining them! Try a winter blue feature wall with neutral walls surrounding it, or go that step further and couple contrasting shades of the same colour together. Colour blocking is perfect for those of you who feel the neutral walls of their kitchens have become outdated and boring.
More often than not, when looking to impress people, modern technology is usually the answer. With technology burrowing its way into every nook and cranny of modern homes, it’s only right that it seeps its way into our kitchens. Not only are there many appliances that can now be activated and controlled from your phone, whether it be activating your kettle so you can have a cup of tea ready when you get home from work, or a hands-free personal assistant (such as Amazon Echo), there are a range of appliances available that can make your kitchen a modern, technological hub.
