Kitchen Design Trends for Spring & Summer

Spring into the kitchen with the latest design trends!

 

Spring is upon us, and summer is just around the corner! And with the change in season, comes a change in kitchen trends.

This season, we are seeing a lot of coastal-toned colours and natural tones making an appearance. Think misty blues and sea-foam greens, light sandy and timber colours, as well as a little bit of darker greys and charcoal to balance out the lighter tones.

As always, kitchen design trends can be a bit of a balancing act between going ‘all out’ and committing to a new trend, and adding hints of the trend throughout your kitchen design to ensure a continued timelessness, regardless of trends.

How can you implement these trends into your kitchen design?

 

Two-tone cabinetry
Two-tone kitchen cabinets are a hot design trend right now — and with good reason. Two-tone cabinets can create visual interest, make a small kitchen seem more spacious and help you stay within your budget. Timber veneer cabinets have been on trend for a while now, and add a light and airy feel to your kitchen space. Add these up top to lighten the eye upwards, and pair them down with lower cabinets in a darker or dustier hue such as the on trend sage green.

Lighting
Kitchen lighting, specifically the ever popular pendant lighting often seen hung over kitchen islands, is a great option for updating your kitchen design without making any major changes. Various shades and bulbs can really update the style and feel of your kitchen accordingly. Here we have examples of lighting used both over kitchen islands, and lighting a kitchen workspace above a benchtop. Both the light rattan style and sea-foam green colours create an illusion of bringing ‘the outside indoors’.

Exposed shelving
Open plan or ‘exposed’ shelving is another popular trend that’s taking off this Spring. Often built as floating shelves in either white or natural timber, this kitchen design trend is all about showing off your individual personality. While serving functionality in the traditional sense (cookbooks, plates, mugs), open plan shelving is also trending for showcasing individual knick knacks, greenery and style.

Herringbone Splashbacks
Though some tilers will tell you that there is more fuss than function in herringbone tiled splashbacks, there’s no denying how striking they are! This on-trend style for kitchen splashbacks has given no indication of slowing down, and we have seen plenty of kitchen designs being installed utilising beautiful tiles in fresh Spring tones such as foggy greys and dusty greens.
