Whether your space is a grand open-plan room within a family home or a compact galley in an apartment, making an investment for a new kitchen can be both daunting and exciting. It’s also costly, so it’s important to get it right on the first go. With so many choices and designs on the market, it can be overwhelming. So, to help you out, we've searched for the top kitchen design trends of 2017 to give you a spot of inspiration!
Shaker kitchens are a timeless classic that never seem to go out of style. Whether you team them with hi-tech gadgets or country-style accessories, they make a solid base on which to build your scheme. If you want to add a contemporary twist to your kitchen, then add plain timbers or pale paint shades, or try slim-profile worktops.
The industrial style is all about a practical cooking space combined with a back-to-basics feel. This look was inspired by reinvented warehouses and urban loft apartments; its key elements include exposed architectural features, such as steel beams and bare-brick walls. Combine with touches of brushed gold or copper for the perfect industrial finish. To add character through walls and splashbacks, take inspiration from materials found at old railways or factories. Alternatively, create impact by mixing materials, for example, pairing textured natural marble or wooden materials with glossier finishes.
Wood is both durable and beautiful, so it's no wonder it continues to be a top design trend each year. This year, paler woods such as beech have declined and the use of darker timbers such as walnut and wenge has grown. However, the latest look is a rough-looking raw wood in a washed-out tone. As usual, classic oak remains a firm favourite - it's been given a new lease of life with the additions of lighter finishes that showcase the beauty and depth of its grain.
