POLL: What home design trend are you happy to see the back of?
well, 7 years down the line and there are definitely kitchen trends that do not go out of fashion.
First off there's the kitchen flooring. Wood flooring makes your kitchen stand out while being versatile and bringing a sense of cosiness. Yes wood is a little bit more high maintenance, but let's not forget that there's wood lookalike floorboards which are easier to maintain than actual wood, so that's an option.
Keeping the kitchen looking simple with clear shapes is also a timeless trend! with everything hidden in storage drawers.
You can never go wrong with neutral colours, in my opinion that's something that's always going to be there, especially white. it never goes out of fashion and is one of the most commonly used colours.
Having the living room and kitchen in one big open space is also a very good option to opt for as it just makes you step back and gives you a sense of relaxation when you look at the overall looks as well as the sense of spaciness.
With these colours and floor, you can never go wrong with a marble benchtop. Marble is on the expensive side but I haven't heard of anyone complaining about the looks or maintenance.
Imagine this whole look so far, marble benchtop, clean looking kitchen with a vast space and joined with your living room, what's missing ? fancy little touches, also known as high quality fixtures, appliances, lighting. Obviously not going overboard with it so you don't end up having a cluttered kitchen.
If you're after a retro-styled kitchen why not opt for retro-looking appliances or actual vintage ones, giving it a classic old school look!
