Monday, January 22nd 2018 4:38pm

Hello and welcome to our first blog post of the year and we hope 2018 is treating you well so far. Today we thought we would look at some of the kitchen and bedroom design trends that are being forecast by some of the top industry experts here in the UK.

We have taken the following information from a recent article in The Independent and you can read the full article at the link if you wish. Here are some of the key pointers regarding the kitchen and the bedroom in the article, which is what our business is most concerned with of course:

More Colour In The Kitchen & Bedroom Area

`Although white will always be a classic colour for kitchen design, homeowners are shying away from bland hues and injecting rich colours, such as warm wood tones (eg, mahogany) and neutrals (eg, greys and blues), into the space to give it a warm, fresh and unique feel.`

Vintage Lighting Making A Comeback

`Vintage light fixtures, including sconces, lanterns, pendants and chandeliers, are making a comeback as crafty home do-it-yourselfers outfit retro fixtures with new technology. "I find that vintage fixtures are often better-made than new fixtures, I prefer their patina, and I appreciate the distinctive, one-of-a-kind quality they add to rooms,"`

Millwork Has Become Popular

`The ease and availability of millwork has helped increase its demand and popularity in the design world. "Before, if you wanted to find millwork or reclaimed wood, you really had to know where to go and find somebody who was good at working with it," Parker said. "Now, you can DIY it, and put it right against the drywall behind your bed to create a feature wall."`


`Looking to refresh your kitchen or bathroom? Stay away from subway or hexagon tiles and instead consider contemporary tiles that look like wood, concrete, resin, fabric or even wallpaper.`

The Minimalist Approach In The Bedroom

`Homeowners are running with the "less is more" notion in the master bedroom and opting for more modern and minimalist furnishings. Instead of bold and busy colours, soothing, neutral colour palettes are expected to reign supreme, along with soft fabrics and simple furniture pieces.`
