Kitchenspiration! From countertops to tiles, it’s all in the detail when it comes to this year’s trends in kitchen design.
Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and it’s also the room that can add the most value to your property. It makes sense to rejuvenate it from time to time – so, are you ready to transform yours? Be inspired by the latest trends in décor and design, and let your RCS loan help you bring them into your home.
COOKING KITCHEN TRENDS FOR 2017
It’s all about monochrome tones in 2017, so think greys, whites and blacks. If you choose a lighter palette for your walls and cabinetry, invest in darker floors. Ebony or mahogany-hued flooring will create an eye-catching contrast between dark and light, while adding a sumptuous, warm feel to the room.
QUARTZ YOUR EYE
Continue this sophisticated feel as you move to the countertops. Quartz is a massive kitchen trend for 2017, as more and more homeowners begin to see the value in adding luxurious touches to their kitchens.
The beauty of quartz – aside from its visual appeal – is that it’s non-porous, a dream to clean, and doesn’t need to be sealed. There’s a magnificent range of quartz countertops to choose from at Builders Warehouse, where you’ll also find granite, eco-friendly bamboo and more.
(NO NEED TO) GET A HANDLE ON IT
The linear look has been gaining popularity since last year and the trend is bigger than ever in 2017. Handleless units add an instant modern revamp to an older kitchen, creating simplicity and clean lines that are integral to the monochrome look. Opt for natural, glossy tones to offset your darker floors and countertops.
Several years ago we saw colourful mosaic splashbacks making an entrance in newer kitchens, and now the trend has been elevated to gorgeous statement tiles. Incorporate an eye-catching design in your floor or select one wall to serve as a design feature of your kitchen. We’re loving the black-and-white splashback look which brings texture and interest to a more neutral colour scheme.
Whether you want to continue the monochrome theme or add an invigorating shade to your room, you’re spoilt for choice at CTM. Visit their showroom to discover everything from natural hues to vibrant patterns, colours and textures.
