Kitchens have changed a lot over the last few years. New technologies have made it much easier to save space, while new designs have made it much easier to create a stylish focal point. There are the kitchen trends every kitchen fitter should know about.
As kitchen trends have evolved, so have kitchen design trends.
The modern kitchen is more open and spacious than ever before, and it's easy to see why.
Of course, the kitchen is arguably the most important room of any home. It's where we prepare food, entertain, and spend quality time with family and friends. It's also arguably one of the most expensive rooms to remodel, as a kitchen renovation can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars.
What's more, kitchen trends come and go, so you'll want to think about how the decisions you make today will affect your home's resale value in the future.
Design trends are often hard to predict, but at the same time, they are easy to understand. The way that human behaviour is changing and how we live today is the key to understanding kitchen trends.
As a result, and although the kitchen's authentic look can be changed, it is more important to concentrate on how this room will be used.
Whether you're designing a kitchen or fitting out a new apartment, small details can make a world of difference. And when it comes to kitchens, the devil is in the details for a good kitchen fitter.
Here are some key trends we are seeing:
A growing and somewhat new trend in which customers may be want to now more in is involves the process of installing install a tech drawer – a drawer in which devices such as phones and tablets can plug in to charge, out of sight and the way of food preparation.
The process of recycling is growing at an exponential rate. However, this leaves many homes with a problem; what to do with the ever-growing recycling pile? A key solution is to incorporate two types of bins into the design and fit. One for typical waste and one for recycling.
Now, modern kitchen faucets are fully integrated with their surroundings and function as standalone artistic objects that will complement your carefully curated kitchen design.
A favourite by some way is the Fohën Flex or quooker hot and cold-water taps, with the former offering Standard hot and cold water dispensed effortlessly to your desired temperature with a Handheld Flexible Spout for ease of use.
Watch out for a trend to mix and match tiles to create an eclectic look. Mix vintage and geometric designs, in the same colour palette, for a bespoke look. The watch works well with both traditional and shaker-style kitchens, which are timeless.
