Kitchen Ideas / March 20, 2018 /
Often the kitchen is the domestic hart of the home and dictates is style arrangement and atmosphere. Especially in modern design homes where the open plan layout merges the kitchen with dining and living room premises the design style of the whole home is under the influence of the kitchen design selection. It is essentially what the colors, shapes, materials and functionality range of the kitchen zone will be and that sets the tone for the rest of the home design combinations. In this article, we will trace for you the hottest trends in kitchen design and furnishing for the upcoming season of 2018/2019 so you can have the general idea of what to look out for when designing your kitchen space.
Think carefully about colour. A dark colour and dark units may close a small kitchen down, but will add immense drama to a larger kitchen. Dark colours are great for evening dining and entertaining, but if you are trying to maximise light it will be swallowed up by gloomy shades. Gloss cupboard doors are really popular at the moment, and they do add a real sense of chic and prestige to your kitchen. Think about textures and finishes at the same time as you consider light to make the best use of what you have. By keeping tall cabinets the same colour you can add a sense of height to a kitchen with a low ceiling. Using white wall cabinets on the walls and more brightly coloured base units gives a sense of space too. Another favourite trick that designers use is installing units which are on legs, giving the illusion of more floor space. Add a shiny floor surface and the effect is increased.
