We know it can be hard to keep up with the current and upcoming kitchen trends, so here is our quick-fire guide on the different elements and styles you can expect to see a lot more next year.
NATURAL COLOURS / NATURAL WOOD KITCHEN
Following on from the demand for Scandinavian (Scandi) style kitchens in 2022, we are seeing more and more real wood kitchens and wood effect cabinets and drawers. The reason so many people choose this look in their homes is the calming feeling that comes from the wood and its’ association with nature.
We have a wide range of options, from woodgrain effects to real wood doors. Speak to one of our designers about real wood kitchens and see how you can create your own Scandi kitchen.
FAMILY FOCUS SEATING/ KITCHEN ISLAND
As things are finally getting back to normal, and people are flocking to each other’s homes again, it’s time to upgrade your space. Kitchen islands are still on the rise and add more than just extra seating or extra food preparation space. According to ‘Better Homes & Gardens’, adding an island to your kitchen is one of the top 5 ways to add value to your home because of the additional practical and social space.

An easy and increasingly popular way to change up your kitchen without it costing the world is to introduce open shelving. A practical use for open shelving is that you can add extra storage space but in a more appealing way! By swapping out some of your doors and having these shelves, you can create a space that is visually interesting. This type of kitchen shelving is also an innovative way to display items such as potted plants, family photos or your favourite bits and bobs. With so many ways to incorporate open shelving into your new kitchen, which will you choose?
DARK AND MOODY
Our designers have seen a large increase in the amount of black and navy-blue kitchens being requested. While the thought of having a dark-coloured kitchen may seem daunting, have no fear! We can put all your worries to rest. Black or deep blue kitchens are best suited for a room with lots of light, and bright walls, as too much darkness in a room can make it feel smaller. This colour of kitchen is also best paired with white worktops and gold accessories such as handles, rails or splashbacks.
CLEVER PANTRY STORAGE
Staying on the trending list for yet another year are super storage solutions and pretty pantries! With so many ways to customise your new cupboard, it’s no wonder they’re sought-after. With the option of real wood dovetail drawers or natural hickory oak, you can make your pantry as minimalistic or extravagant as possible.
For more information on pantries, read our blog post, or visit one of our kitchen designers by booking an appointment.
It seems real wood kitchens aren’t the only thing causing a stir. Piggybacking from Scandi kitchens and Japandi-style kitchens, mixed material kitchens are the next best thing. We offer concrete effect, marble effect, real wood and wood grain effect doors, so plenty of options to pick and choose from! The mixture can also include worktops and flooring! For example, you could pick all woodgrain doors and then have a Quartz, marble effect worktop! You can then pair these with our range of metallic rails or handles. The combination of these different elements creates a calm effect.
