Top Kitchen Trends this Spring

Tired of your drab cupboards and messy work surfaces? Whether you’re looking to make small renovations or are in the budget for a larger revamp, we’re here to give you all the details on this season’s top kitchen trends. Read on…

Splashes of Colour

White kitchens have been all the rage for quite some time. It’s hard not to see why, as they can appear brighter, roomier and more vibrant than a kitchen with a darker colour scheme.

If you want to avoid your white kitchen coming off as cold, however, you might want to add a pop of colour. This will give life to an otherwise stark white colour scheme. Go for darker, earthier colours if you wish to add pleasant focal points in your kitchen—think dark green or a warm beige. Brickwork and bamboo touches can also add interest to an otherwise stark white space.

Adding splashes of colour needn’t be restricted to white kitchens either. If you have a darker colour scheme, lighter colours like pale blue or orange can add character to any kitchen.

Artwork and Decorations

You might think decorations like paintings and lamps are reserved for spaces elsewhere in your home, such as your living room or your hallway. But why not give your kitchen a touch of personality with a few tasteful pieces of decoration?

One of this spring’s trends is seeing kitchens adopt a more casual, homely and comfortable appearance, much like your living room. Decorative mirrors, table lamps, small oil paintings, potted plants and statement décor are all excellent choices to brighten up your kitchen without breaking the bank.

Hidden Appliances

If a bigger reno is in your budget, why not try out the hidden appliance trend? As the name implies, this trend involves hiding your appliances behind panels that match the rest of your kitchen cabinetry. The result: a seamless, modern look that can visually open your kitchen and make your overall space look sleeker and less cluttered.

Appliances that can be hidden behind panels include your fridge, your microwave, your hob, your range hood, your washing machine and your oven.

Kitchen Home Office

In a world where remote work has become the norm, finding room in your home to get your tasks done can be difficult, especially if you live in a smaller house. Fortunately, there’s a cosy space in your home that you can utilise without having to break any walls: your kitchen.

Put literal meaning into your work surfaces by converting a corner of your kitchen into your very own home office. Unused work surfaces can serve as your desk, while unused kitchen drawers and cabinets can be used to store any office supplies. How amazing it is that you’ll only be a hop and a skip away from an energising cup of coffee to keep you going?

Chequerboard Flooring

Our final trend for you is chequerboard flooring. Hardly a new trend, true, but this visually interesting floor style can be refreshed this spring with a variety of colours and patterns. If black and white aren’t your style, why not go for a softer grey tile pattern? Or earthy wood-toned colours for a natural look? This simple pattern is more versatile than you’d think.

We hope some of these trends will inspire you to give your kitchen a bit of a makeover this spring.

Until next time!
