Top 5 Kitchen Trends this Year

The turn of a new decade calls for new interior inspiration and we’ve got the scoop on what styles will dominate the trends this year! The kitchen is fast becoming the heart of the home as more and more households embrace healthy eating habits by preparing fresh, homemade dishes. According to Fortune, cookbooks are one of the only genres in the book business that is growing and doing better every year. This means that households are expected to spend more time in the kitchen than they have been in recent years.

 

Stay ahead of the trends and check out these five superb styles, predicted to rise to the top as the must-have kitchen interior style!

 

Calacatta Marble

 

If you follow interior bloggers, there’s a fair chance you’ve seen the obsession with marble finishes. It’s sleek, sophisticated and presents plenty of visual interest whilst maintaining a timeless aesthetic. Calacatta marble offers a distinctive, luxury look with strong, robust qualities. It features a pronounced veining effect that lends a bold, graphic appeal. Suitable for both warm and cool tone interiors, calacatta marble should be featured as a backsplash wall behind cooker hoods, on kitchen counters and breakfast bars.

 

Calacatta marble appears particularly striking when styled with primary cool tone décor and secondary warm tone metallics. Picture light grey kitchen cabinets, a dark forest green breakfast bar and cooker hood. Imagine luxury polished brass metallics embellished in the legs of your dark forest green breakfast bar chairs, lighting fixtures and most importantly, kitchen cupboard handles.

 

Exclusively designed for luxury kitchen interiors, the knurled T bar cupboard handle features an industrial quality with its unique diamond-cut texture. Blending strength with elegance, this sleek T bar handle adds the perfect finishing touch with its warm, satin brass finish.

 

Sleek Simplicity

 

Let your metallic elements stand out by keeping everything else in the kitchen simple. "This year, simplicity will be key," according to Pickart. "Flat-panelled millwork with minimal detailing and fuss is the best way to let unique cabinetry materials really shine."

 

Perfect for minimalist spaces, the designer polished chrome cabinet handle features a sophisticated and charming look with its natural, high-shine finish.

Brick

 

Looking to incorporate the industrial loft style into your kitchen? Showcase the raw aesthetic of brick in your backsplash wall. The refined, rustic style of exposed brick commands the attention as it combines modern with traditional style. If red brick feels too daunting, try white brick to brighten up your kitchen space.

 

Make brickwork pop by muting your metallics with matte black features. The sleek appearance of the versatile matte black kitchen handle will certainly upgrade the look of any kitchen interior. If the red brick is more your style then warm, copper accents will compliment this hue. Feature copper in your kitchen cabinets, appliances and serving ware for a stylish, cohesive fit.

 

Cerused Wood

 

Cerused wood, which involves applying coloured pigments while still allowing the wood's natural grain to shine through, is having a moment in both cabinetry and furniture, says Donna Mondi.

 

Add further flair to your kitchen cabinets with the embellishment of sleek cupboard handles in a unique black brass finish. The underlying warmth of the black brass finish will add just a touch of visual delight to the dynamic design of cerused wood. Available in a variety of sizes to suit all types of furniture pieces, this cupboard handle packs a punch on drawers and cupboards.

 

Green Cabinetry & Accessories

 

The trend for bold, dark hues will be ever more prevalent in this year’s interior décor. From forest shades to green olives and emerald hues, the colour green is expected to gain plenty of interest.

 

Wondering how to style?

 

According to Ideal Home, ‘Deep forest greens can be balanced out with latte shades, smoky glass and soft metallics to bring opulence to the kitchen. The addition of white marble and brass through design aspects like lighting and worktops, or even accessories, help to bounce the light around the space and offset the heavier hues.’

 

Showcase effortless flair by styling dominant green kitchen interiors with a blend of mix metallics. Feature subtle accents of polished chrome, matte black, copper and satin brass throughout your kitchen and tie the shades in together with cohesive appliances, tableware and utensil sets.

 

Available in a variety of finishes, half-cup handles for cupboards and drawers are perfect for minimalist or smaller kitchen spaces and they also feature concealed fixing holes for a tidier appearance.
