What about colour? Well what we are seeing is that the range of colours now being offered in kitchens has grown hugely over the last year. Designers and homeowners are becoming more adventurous when choosing cabinet colours with many now opting for subtle colours, especially in contemporary and modern designs. Subtle colours could be in the way of gloss or matt doors in a modern kitchen or even warm wood textures. Of course, mixing both paint colours and wood textures is a massive trend at the moment and is only going to gain in popularity. For classical and traditional kitchen styles, off white painted kitchens are still popular but other bolder colours are coming through, especially when mixed with softer colours. For solid wood kitchens, oak and walnut are still going to be as popular as ever.
Materials: As we all know, there has been a significant move towards eco friendly and reclaimed materials in recent years. Expect to see reclaimed wood being used as a feature, especially in high end kitchens, even creeping in to modern and contemporary kitchens to add an earthy feel.
