The kitchen is arguably one of the most important rooms in the home. It can often be described as the heart of the home, as it is where so much goes on. Gathering as a family, eating, socialising, cooking, and spending time. So it is easy to see why many people will want to invest in their kitchens. As a room that gets used multiples of times a day, it can be completely worth it.
Kitchens are also one of the rooms in the home that can really add value to a property too. They can be expensive to replace, so any potential buyers will be happier with a kitchen that is all set up for them and ready to go. With that in mind, it might make sense to show your kitchen some TLC to get it looking at it’s best; especially if you’re thinking of moving soon. What are some of the trends in kitchens at the moment, though? Here are a few styles for you to look out for.
Industrial Style –
The minimal and Scandi look has grown in huge popularity over recent years. Along with it, the industrial style has become rather popular too. But what does an industrial style kitchen look like? It could be exposed pipes or brick, along with rustic metals or large pendant lights with modern filament bulbs. Wood, stone, and concrete are materials for this style of kitchen; basically, keep things simple.
Handleless Kitchens –
Choosing a linear look in your kitchen is becoming very popular. It is a very modern style that I think will just get bigger and bigger. Plain unit doors and drawers without handles are making kitchens look sleek and sophisticated, especially if they are finished off with chrome or gloss finishes. You can see the style on the Alaris Avenue website if you’re not too sure of the style I’m talking about. But if want a modern looking kitchen, this could be the look for you.
Smart Storage Solutions –
Having very little on your worktops is another big trend at the moment. Gone are the days of having all of your appliances out on every inch of worktop space. Instead, look for units and cupboards that will help you to hide appliances and keep everything stored smartly away. Deep drawers and tall larders are a good way to go, as well as having the kitchen units reaching right to the ceiling. It looks less cluttered and much more stylish when you have very little out on ‘display.’
Accents of Copper –
The home trend of black and white slowly moved to embracing light shades of grey and more earthy tones. While this is set to continue, having pops or accents of copper in the kitchen have been very popular. People are looking for alternatives to stainless steel for their kitchen gadgets, as well as the handles or appliances. So a copper kettle or toaster could be just the things that you need to give your kitchen a modern and stylish vibe.
