With kitchen design trends constantly changing, it can be difficult to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not in this part of your home. If you’re looking to give your kitchen a completely new look, or you simply want to stay up-to-date, here’s a rundown of some of the top trends that are set to be big news in the coming months.
Countryside chic //
Farmhouse style kitchens were once exclusive to cottages and rustic properties alike. However, in recent years countryside chic has grown in popularity, with homeowners adopting this style to create their own dreamy cooking spaces. Whitewash floors, Belfast sinks and antique-looking taps are all prominent features of this trend and if you’re keen to get this look, it’s easier to achieve than you might think. Solid wood worktops are a typical characteristic of a farmhouse kitchen, so you could start by swapping your current surfaces for timber replacements. Whether you prefer dark walnut or light beech, you shouldn’t struggle to get your hands on worktops that perfectly capture the countryside vibe. Online specialists such as Worktop Express offer a whole array of high-quality wooden worktops made from bamboo, beech and much more.
All white //
White is set to be a popular decor choice this year. Fresh, minimalist and contemporary, decorating your kitchen from top to bottom in pure white can help you make a bold style statement throughout your cooking space. Whether you go for a matte or high gloss finish, choosing to go colourless in this room could give the illusion your kitchen is bigger than it is and make it the perfect area to prepare food, eat meals and socialise with guests. As well as painting the walls white and choosing white cabinets and flooring, you could go for white coloured appliances and accessories. Simple, chic and effortlessly cool, white on white is a trend you won’t be able to ignore in 2016.
Stylishly eclectic //
If you’re not one to follow the crowd, you might want to listen up. This year, anything goes when it comes to kitchens, and it’s predicted that eclectic is going to be making its mark on the interior design scene. For decor that’s diverse, why not incorporate a mix of different styles throughout your cooking space? This trend can combine anything from a bright, floral wall pattern and a marble effect splash back to white gloss worktops and a kitchen island made from solid oak. If you’re looking for a decor craze that allows you to create your own personal cooking area with a unique twist, this could be the one for you.
With such a wide range of kitchen trends on the scene in 2016, you shouldn’t struggle to find a style that will look great in your home.
