Wouldn’t you like to give your kitchen a new look for spring? We have collected 9 of the trendy highlights for you!
The color scheme in the kitchen is changing its look this year. White is retained, but the wall shelves and kitchen splashbacks will appear more often in pleasant, saturated colors. Examples of this are slate gray, gray, light blue and light green, which can be skillfully combined. The light wood colors such as walnut and oak are making a comeback.
On the contrary, the primary colors are pushed into the background. You should therefore choose neutral colors such as matt blue, matt green and pastel yellow as accent colors.
Inventive space-saving furniture
A high-tech makeover is pending. More and more kitchen units will have SmartSystem-compatible devices. For example, you will discover hidden niches with charging stations so that cell phones and iPads are always charged and ready to hand.
Major changes include amenities for all family members. Real sophisticated equipment is being introduced, ranging from steamers to coffee makers to wine coolers.
Back to the 80s
Accents such as tiled mirrors, kitchen accessories made of brass and high-gloss surfaces are coming back with an upswing. They should look more refined and elegant. Brass – satined and coated with clear lacquer is preferred over the high-gloss finish. By the way, expect natural materials instead of plastic.
Covers of metal
The metal surface finish (whether copper, brass or bronze) was very popular last year. Metallic accents were often introduced into the interior, such as faucets, pendant lights and handles.
This year, metal will play a dominant role in the aesthetic kitchen. The extractor hoods made of metal or as a combination of metal and wood find their place in home design. If you follow the trend with neutral colors, the metallic cover would create a great contrast to it.
Integrated eat-in kitchen
Does your kitchen seem somehow separate or apart from the other rooms? With this new fashion you will to some extent integrate the kitchen area into the living room. Optimized kitchen designs are offered that adapt to the living space. The kitchen-cum-living-room is created with the help of hidden and fully integrated household appliances.
A new tradition
The simple kitchen design is mostly preferred. Even in traditional or country kitchens, clear lines and fewer details should dominate, ie fewer frills and more functionality and strategically placed objects.
Traditional designs are becoming increasingly popular, but from now on with more emphasis on basic elements such as hoods, cooking islands, etc.
This year, attention is drawn to striking, unusual texture contrasts. In the kitchen area, for example, a stone ceiling can consist of different types of stone. Such treatment shows extreme attention to detail.
Furniture from the mid-20th century is also found in the kitchen design. As we mentioned in this article, walnut wood is now widely used in the manufacture of kitchen islands and fronts. That is exactly the main idea of Nordic Style. There is an homage to the furniture from the 1960s. Get on board and greet this minimalist design with its white colors and various wooden elements. This furnishing style emphasizes the simplicity and functionality of the furniture.
The kitchen accessories come into play with bright colors. Sinks, kitchen splashbacks and shelves will by no means appear neutral and reserved. Even stove fronts and worktops will surprise you with their color design. The end result is a dynamic modernity in the interior.
Illuminated wall shelves
Ceiling lights and table lamps will no longer be sufficient as lighting. As a rule, LED lighting is tastefully installed above, below and on wall shelves.
These are the kitchen design trends that are taking the world by storm this year!
