KITCHEN TRENDS AND DESIGN IDEAS

BY BELINDA WILSON

Grey is the new white!”

Charcoal, greys and even neutral pastels like pale blue, pale green and tinted whites are now being used as alternatives to standard white.


 

Or there again Black could be the new white!

Not the shiny black that we’ve seen in before but a more matt black even a greyed off black


 

Country Kitchens

Are a strong trend but not the heavy rustic look a lighter brighter country feel


Metal hoods

Metallic finishes of copper, brass and bronze were a big trend last year for taps, lighting and cabinet pulls. For 2016 metal hoods are being seen.


LIGHTER WOOD

Also lighter wood tones :walnuts, whitewashed woods and white oak in rift grain are on trend.

 

Goodbye Island Hello Kitchen Table

Recently people are entertaining the idea of substituting the island with a large table instead. Perhaps this trend being inspired by the renewed love affair with the American farmhouse design.
