Now is the time to look for a new, stylish kitchen so let’s delve into the latest kitchen trends of 2018. Stylish trends don’t have to be time stamped as these ideas can be trendy for years to come. Let’s take a look at some timeless ideas for your brand-new kitchen, meaning you’ll be able to add these touches to your designs.
1. Could navy blue could be the new white?
Whilst white and cream stay at the top of the colour chart, navy blue is climbing up the charts. Navy blue doesn’t stand out as a warm, homely feel to add to a kitchen, but it’s proven to be a very popular choice of colour. Whilst the navy colour is dark, don’t write it off as it can add a smart and sophisticated look to your kitchen. Dark blue hand-painted cabinets can be paired perfectly with any worktop, wood or granite, and the perfect handles to add to that classy look.
Dark blue can be ideal for adding a pop of colour to your kitchen. How about a stylish navy blue island with a quartz worktop? Or maybe a navy blue coat of paint for your all white kitchen? Navy blue works well with white, and many other colours! These are all timeless tweaks which will update your kitchen.
2. Adding Metallic Accessories
As you probably already know, copper is a big deal! It is a big trend continuing into 2018 and becoming popular in kitchens. Copper and other metals, such as gold, silver, brass and rose gold, are becoming the go to colours for taps, lamp shades and other kitchen accessories. Metal handles can add a lot to the design of a kitchen, the perfect finishing touches.
3. Smart Kitchens
Why not try integrating the latest technology into your kitchen? To make sure you’re up to date in the kitchen department, check out the newest kitchen technology which can transform your kitchen. Adding lights may seem like a little addition but it can be the icing on the cake and really give your kitchen the ‘wow’ factor.
Another smart move in your kitchen would be to include a Quooker. This boiling water tap means you have instant boiling water on hand whenever you need it. Great for cooking and it enables you to make the perfect cup of tea in less than a minute. No more waiting for the kettle to boil when you have hot water at the twist of a button!
4. Two-tone features
You may have already heard of colour blocking as it was a big trend throughout 2017. Lots of features include two-tones which can add a sophisticated touch. This year we can expect to see material blocking. Using tiles and bricks can create elegant wall features which can transform your kitchen area. Dress it with shelves full of serving platers, jugs and mugs to add the final touches.
