Kitchen design trends are followed by many homeowners, where their kitchen is updated in the latest fads and a style that will stand the test of time for many years. We take a look at a few practical kitchen design trends that will freshen up your home and your lifestyle.
Quartz worktops are very practical and are the easiest to maintain against the two other stones such as granite and marble. Quartz will save you cleaning time in the long run and still look pristine in that beautiful kitchen. Quartz just about goes with any design, including both light and dark colours fitting in with both traditional and modern homes.
An open-plan kitchen is very practical in terms of providing space and access to all of the appliances. The way we use a kitchen today has changed dramatically, from just a room for cooking to today’s kitchen which is all about having a space that’s inviting to cook, eat and gather with family and friends. Relaxed dining areas and entertainment spaces are created with an open-plan layout.
Induction cooking is the way forward but there is still a market and a love for gas hobs. Induction hobs use electric currents to directly heat the pots and pans. They will heat your cookware almost instantly with faster meal prep for those mid-week meals and fit flush against your worktops.
Clever kitchen storage can integrate big chunky appliances. It makes the kitchen look sleek with a streamline effect, and gives you more opportunity to add colour to the kitchen space. Hide your laundry appliances such as the washing machine behind a door to make the most of your available space.
Industrial styles are becoming more and more popular within the hub of the home with metallic metals and a professional cooking look. Stainless steel appliances blend in with any kitchen style whether it be traditional or modern, and creates an effortless contemporary touch, with a polished and sophisticated look.
The kitchen sink isn’t just the kitchen sink, it can become a feature in the hub of the home, as well as a functional bit of kit. The farmhouse sink has become a popular option over the years and is able to accommodate much more than a normal size sink.
