  1. Anti-Kitchen

When is the kitchen not a kitchen? When it is being cleverly hidden by chameleon-like skills to blur the functional and put the focus squarely on the form. This trend for un-kitchen like aesthetics has grown increasingly popular and features a palette of materials and finishes which are more usually associated with living room furniture. Luxury wood and stone score highly, plus the use of fully integrated equipment wherever possible.

  1. A little timber

While an all-out timber treatment may be difficult to get right without stepping perilously close to a traditional line, we welcome the trend that sees warm injections of wood into the décor. Real wood, being a natural material, will make a room feel cosy and calming. There is no substitute for real wood, and it provides the richness and personality that will ensure your new kitchen stands out.

  1. Patterned floors

Drawing inspiration from traditional tile patterns, current trends include a strong geometric repeated pattern and a choice of bold colours.

  1. Industrial styling

With shades inspired by the metal industry and polished concrete, rusty copper tones remain all the rage.

  1. Copper continues to reign

Not only for taps and sinks, many appliances are getting the copper treatment, like ovens for example.  Copper trim details are being seen on appliances from Smeg, De Dietrich and the Italian brand, Bertazzoni.

  1. Colours

Despite the name, Naked Kitchens are all about injecting colour, and certainly not being naked or plain. Think dusty pinks and turquoises, dazzling copper offset by bright tiled splashbacks. So that’s something to look at while you do the washing-up!

  1. Hiding your extractor

A large extractor fan can wreck the smart appearance of a contemporary minimalist kitchen. Thankfully, new designs mean that a glass framed extractor can be placed almost flush to the ceiling and backlit by LEDs.

  1. Sinks of stone

Marble sinks bring a piece of Italy to your kitchen aesthetics in a cool, sophisticated English way. Consider a Milan penthouse or a rustic Tuscan look, with sink cut from one single polished block of smooth stone that will mature beautifully over the years.

  1. Leading lights

A modern kitchen should be enhanced with integrated silicon LED strips and underlit cabinetry for a real designer look.
