  • Soft, muted colour palettes
    Charcoal, greys and even neutral pastels like pale blue, pale green and tinted whites are the new alternative to the standard colours. Meaning the bolder primary colours are being placed on the back burner, being replaced by the muted colour options.
  • Open Plan
    For the social butterflies, an open plan kitchen is ideal. It centralises the kitchen and offers the space to entertain guests whilst you’re cooking. From breakfast bars to islands, this design gives you the flexibility in terms of space, whilst always being involved.

  • Contemporary Country
    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.
  • Super Storage
    This year 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 three tiny cupboards is a thing of the past.
