Hot Kitchen Trends For 2016

Kitchen trends for 2016

1.Open Plan

For the social butterflies of the world, an open plan kitchen is ideal. It centralizes the kitchen and gives you the space to entertain guests while you’re cooking. From breakfast bars to islands, an open floor plan gives you the flexibility in terms of space and means you won’t miss out on any part of the night.

2.High Gloss

A super glossy, futuristic plastic will look striking against a dark or neutral palette. From cherry reds to limes, pure whites to deep berry tones, the sky is your limit when it comes to choice, just make sure to keep on top of the cleaning to avoid messy fingerprints.

3.Contemporary Country

Less twee than previous years, the new country kitchen is a modern day feast for any vintage or traditional kitchen lovers. Pair soft pastels like duck egg blue, mints or pale lemons with darker, richer woods like mahogany or walnut for a contemporary contrast.

4.Brushed Steel

Still very much sought after, metallic kitchens aren’t running out of steam any time soon. To bring this trend up to date, opt for brushed steel as opposed to the shinier versions of late. Offset the shine with a matte or block dark colour to really show off the finish.

5.Super Storage

Utilising the space in your kitchen is something that many people struggle with, but next season there will be many appliances and kitchens that are built with space in mind. From drawers opening at the touch, to hidden cupboards, multi use appliances and more, cramming everything into 3 tiny cupboards is a thing of the past!
