The scope within kitchen design is endless, therefore trends are constantly evolving. We’re passionate about spotting upcoming kitchen design trends and are excited to share them with you here.

The most popular kitchen colour of 2021 was certainly Blue and this will continue early into 2022, however, this year will also see the emergence of deep, rich greens. Dark tones such as Forest Green look stunning paired with a Brass handle, creating a warm, inviting feel. Whereas mid-tones such as Olive can be given a contemporary twist with black accessories. Another emerging theme is rustic-style wood grains paired with Matt Black, which sees the industrial style kitchen trend growing in popularity.

At System Six, not only do we have plenty of ‘off-the-shelf’ colours to choose from, we also offer a Colour Match Service on selected ranges, so you can complement your chosen kitchen interior design theme perfectly.

Your final kitchen design will be based on many factors such as your personal style, who uses the kitchen, where the kitchen is located and the type of home you have. As a result, these are the type of questions you can expect when you speak to a System Six designer, who will guide you through the whole process. However, should you want to plan ahead, here is plenty of information to get you started.

We manufacture our own kitchen cabinetry in a factory located right behind our showroom in Exeter. This affords us complete control over how our cabinets are made and provides you and your designer free reign to explore kitchen design features you may previously have thought unachievable. To ensure we deliver on quality, our bespoke kitchens are made to order using a combination of precision machinery and manual craftmanship.

There are far more kitchen design layout options than you may realise, especially given that System Six kitchens can conform to the contours of your room. Our most sought-after layout is simply a kitchen island design, incorporating a seating area (often called a Breakfast Bar), as it creates a social area where everyone in the family can congregate whilst meals are being prepared. However, a peninsular island (an island attached to a wall) serves the same purpose but works better in a smaller space. For further ideas on islands and any other layout, speak to one of our designers today – they love being given the chance to get creative.


Whether you’d like to combine clothes washing facilities into your kitchen or create a separate utility room, we will advise on the best way to devise an area that is as functional and practical as possible.
