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