After a year at home, many people are itching to renovate their homes or, at least, make some minor changes. The kitchen is at the heart of most UK homes, and it sets the tone for the rest of the space. Hot water taps, red statement walls and simplified designs are kitchen trends that are taking the interior world by storm.
The modern kitchen is a multi-functional space for work, food and family time. Of course, open plan living rooms and kitchens are a brilliant way to create a flow through your home. If you’re thinking of investing in a renovation this year, below are a few kitchen trends to consider.
3 Kitchen Trends that are Popping Up Now
1. High-quality cookware sets.
Working from home has seen a rise in people cooking more meals from scratch. High-quality cookware sets are a must for those with a particular affinity for homemade meals. Invest in a new saucepan set and crockery to make all of your cooking dreams come true.
2. The rise of the hot water tap.
Integrated hot water taps are the latest kitchen interior trend in the UK. Say goodbye to waiting for your kettle to boil water, and hello to instant hot water on demand. The main concern with this particular trend is, of course, safety. Most hot water taps come with a safety feature to prevent any hot water accidents.
Besides, who doesn’t want a quick hot coffee before the next Zoom call?
3. Add pops of color for an ultra-lux feel.
Navy kitchens became all the rage in 2019 and 2020. Farrow and Ball Hague Blue paint was featured in every influencers kitchen and living room last year. 2021, on the other hand, is all about red kitchens and the two-tone look. Pair your red kitchen with dark worktops for an ultra-lux feel. Or go for a pastel green and wooden worktop for a country-chic look. If you are installing a new kitchen, consider choosing a wooden kitchen so you can paint it different colors throughout the years.
4. Sophistication in simplicity and clever storage.
It can be difficult to install storage into narrow or broken plan kitchens. Try minimizing the number of appliances and clutter in your kitchen space to make it look bigger. Kitchens need to be practical, efficient, and, of course, attractive to look at. You could use hidden storage for the larger appliances and floating shelves for your pretty china.
Tall wall units are brilliant in narrow spaces as they use up vertical space, overtaking up more floor space. Try to make your kitchen feel bright and airy over cramped and stressful. After all, the kitchen should be a room for leisure time and relaxation.
