Kitchen Trends 2017.
Kitchen trends 2017! It’s the new year which brings us new kitchen trends to look out for, and whilst you may not be looking to get a whole new kitchen, there are certain elements you can update which will totally transform your kitchen space. Here we have our top favourite trends of 2017 to inspire you.
- Quartz Worktops – Quartz is a great choice for your kitchen worktop as it can effectively be used as one big chopping board and preparation surface. It is heat and stain resistant, easy to clean, and will not cut or scratch as the material itself is extremely tough and hardwearing, also requiring little if any maintenance. It is non-porous meaning it will not absorb any liquids resulting in stain prevention, and it is one of the only surfaces that can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria making it the most hygienic. Roma Interiors supplies and installs a huge range of Silestone quartz in an array of different colour. Take a look at our kitchen collection!
- Black Appliances – For a contemporary look, black appliances instantly add a sleek and sophisticated element to the kitchen. Neff have a variety of black appliances, such as microwaves, dishwashers, an American style fridge and also a state of the art, built-in coffee centre, all available on the Roma-Interiors website.
- Clever Storage & Clear Worktops – As mentioned in a previous post, one of the most important elements of your kitchen is your storage solutions, and having a design that works for you – what you need, there when you need it. Accessibility is important, however a trend seen throughout 2016 and continuing into the new year is minimalistic living. Keeping your surfaces clutter-free and opting for clever storage which means having everything in your kitchen neatly and orderly stored away in cupboards and drawers, out of sight and where everything has its place. This also provides extra surface space to make use of. Whether you have a big or small space, we have a variety of storage options to suit any size kitchen.
- Handle Free Kitchens – In keeping with the minimalistic preference, handle free kitchens are said to be a hot trend for 2017. Providing a simple yet modern style, with a sleek and linear finish is an increasingly popular design for the modern kitchen. Available in neutral tones such as dove grey, white and ivory, and high gloss finishes. We have several collections available – Second Nature, Kitchen Stori and Burbidge.
- Technology – In this day and age, there is a gadget for everything and this is continuing to develop. Technology is present in every place in the house, and that includes the kitchen. With state of the art coffee appliances and steam ovens, as well as the latest blenders and juicers available, there are also now gadgets to make cooking easier and more enjoyable. Most people will now look up recipes on their mobile phones or tablets, and there are now tablet stands available to make it easier to follow recipes or even watch a cookery show whilst cooking yourself. Bluetooth speakers are also becoming commonplace in the kitchen. As we know the kitchen is the most utilitarian room in the house but that doesn’t mean it is just that anymore. Enjoy your favourite music whilst cooking up a storm for family and friends.
