Design Trends of the Future

Interior trends constantly change from year to year throughout the seasons as colour schemes and textures come in and out of fashion like clothes do. There are many classic trends that will never go out of style, but there are numerous themes that have been hugely popular amongst our clients.

Below we will outline to you the design trends of the future and what will take over in the modern kitchen today.

Brass hardware

We have seen a rise in clients opting for brass accessories within their kitchen design. They are the go-to material to add stylish accents and a pop of gorgeous colour to your space. Even adding small amounts or lots can change the space and work equally well.

When adding small touches of brass throughout the kitchen layout will bring elegance and luxury, especially when paired with darker hues. Sparingly used will add an understated hint of glamour without interfering with the overall design. One of the most common ways our clients have subtly incorporated brass is by selecting it for their handles, taps, and accessories such as lighting and decorative pieces.

If you are wanting to make a more dramatic stand out feature, the use of a brass element to an unsuspecting part of the kitchen for example a sink can turn it straight into a stylish centrepiece. This functional element of the kitchen can be turned into a beautiful design feature in itself.

Breakfast pantries

We are designing lots of breakfast pantries within our handmade kitchen across the country, due to families spending more time at home due to COVID-19 and wanting to incorporate new storage options for their evergrowing dry ingredients collection and keeping the kitchen clutter-free.

Having lots of appliances on show in the kitchen can overcrowd the worktops and take the eye off of that stunning handmade kitchen design. Breakfast cupboards are a marvellous storage solution to hide away those unsightly appliances and provide the kitchen and busy family with a design statement or a cupboard that blends seamlessly with the other cabinetry in the room.

Store your kettle, toaster, cereal, coffee machine, microwave and dinnerware in a breakfast cupboard.

Splashbacks and worktops matching

When we look back at kitchen design trends of the past it was common to make a splashback a feature in the kitchen that was of contrasting colours or materials to help it stand out. Fast forward to now and this trend has seen a U-turn where many clients are opting for their worktops to flow up the wall as an upstand or full-height splashback.

Not every material is not suitable for an upstand, so you need to select carefully. A natural stone is a popular choice among our clients and works really well in both traditional and contemporary homes.

Handmade bars

Within the recent year we have found ourselves being at home more and not being able to go to bars and restaurants as they have been closed due to the pandemic. Many homeowners have opted to create their own bar in the comfort of their own home to entertain guests (when they can) or become a mixologist.

Turn an unused corner into a homemade bar and opt for glass cabinets to display glassware, mixers, and bar accessories. Add an additional wine or beer fridge to the mix too, to ensure drinks are ready to serve, whenever required.

Fresh green kitchens

The colour green is a popular trend we are seeing within the kitchen design, it brings freshness to the indoors, and with us being more conscious than ever about our health and well-being, a zesty shade of green couldn’t be more relevant. Green is extremely versatile and is available in many different shades that are suitable for all tastes.

It isn’t surprising to see a natural colour palette being used with natural materials in the home today due to the issues we are facing with the environment and climate change.
