With the new year officially upon us, it’s time to start looking at all of the upcoming trends and how they can be incorporated into current interiors and décor styles. With so many wonderful trends it can be really easy to introduce small features into your home without making drastic changes or spending a large amount of money. The kitchen is one of the easiest rooms in the home when it comes to injecting new styles, trends and designs, so here are a few trends that we think you’re going to love this year.
Utilizing Smaller Spaces
There are a number of ways in which you can introduce high quality storage to your kitchen and utilising smaller spaces is a perfect way to do so. If there are any areas of your kitchen that are difficult to use due to the awkward shape or size, then now is the time for your kitchen to shine. Introducing storage to these difficult spaces won’t just enable you to make the most of the space that you have, it will also enable your kitchen to flow smoothly and look complete. The style will be fresh and crisp and the décor will look bright and bold.
Black and white are two of the most popular colours when it comes to kitchen design, along with hints of grey to add contrast and style. Monochrome tones can benefit your kitchen in many different ways, from the décor itself to finishing touches throughout the room. Grey became a hugely popular colour in the interior world throughout 2016, so the demand for monochrome detailing and tones this year is inevitable.
It’s not always necessary to re-design your whole kitchen in order to gain a new look, you can make small, simple changes and still see a large impact on your interiors. Whether you invest in some new replacement kitchen doors that you want to add some new colour too, or you decide to repaint the current kitchen doors that you have, you can create a completely new look and feel for your kitchen whilst saving yourself some money too.
With rose gold taking the world by storm in every aspect possible, we’ve now seen a sudden love for copper. Copper is the perfect material to introduce to almost any interiors, no matter what the décor. The metal tones and rustic edge give this material a unique touch that will enhance any home. From bed frames, bathroom taps and door handles, to delicate photo frames, kitchen utensils and so on, this stylish material is taking the interior world by storm. The great thing about the copper accents is that they go with almost any colour scheme, making then both versatile, practical and on trend.
Top Quality Gadgets
2016 was the year of the drone, the Apple watch and VR (Virtual Reality), so we can only expect more digital surprises from 2017. Having some fancy, tech savvy gadgets in your home can add a huge amount of character and style. Not only will having these gadgets be exciting and on trend, they’re also very useful. Whether you have a tablet that enables you to speak to it to remind you to buy some more milk, or you have a machine that helps you sharpen your kitchen knives in seconds, once you add them to your home, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!
