If you’ve decided that 2018 is the year that you finally revamp your kitchen, you may want to consider what some of the top trends are in this space.
Domain recently highlighted the findings of a Houzz survey, which picked out the top features for kitchens this year. One of the main trends is for larger, open-plan kitchens, which means that the likes of islands are growing in popularity.
Many homeowners who plan to tackle their kitchens this year are intending to focus on their cabinetry. The main reasons for the change are to make better use of the space, reduce clutter and improve efficiency.
Rather than going for an off-the-shelf set of kitchen units, you may want to spend a little more and invest in luxury bespoke kitchens in London to get exactly what you want from your space.
Wood is still proving a popular material too, particularly where flooring is concerned, as homeowners are swapping tiles for wooden flooring to get the aesthetic they’re looking for.
The Irish Times also recently highlighted some top kitchen design trends, among them the growing popularity of breakfast bars and a preference for on-show storage. That means more open shelving to allow people to inject some personality and warmth into their kitchens.
According to the news provider, wood is also making a return to our kitchens in more places than just on the floor because it is “another way to add warmth to the space”. Incorporating this material in unusual ways – such as by using wood panels for a splashback, for example – is also proving popular.
