As a kitchen is an investment for many that often takes years to save for, and involves a lot of time, money and often is a very emotional process too- so it’s something you want to get right first time. When working on kitchen designs for customers, we get many different queries from customers about the flow and layout of their kitchen and they often need a lot of guidance on where to place their appliances, whether they need an island, where to place their seating area and many more questions.
So to help answer some of these queries we’ve created a blog series that is going to answer your design questions. The first design topic we’re going to tackle is about islands.
As a professional in the kitchen industry, we are always aiming to widen our audience and one of the ways in which we do this is through the platform Houzz.
Being a part of Houzz also provides the opportunity to be involved in different webinars which have many different topics, including trends and ways to improve your Houzz profile. The most recent webinar that we attended outlined all of the trends that Houzz have predicted for Kitchens in 2018. We thought it would be interesting to let you know what these trends are, and our interpretation of them!
The first main trend highlighted was white kitchens. People are looking for fresh, open spaces and having everything white is a very easy way to do that. White is a colour that evokes an immediate sense of cleanliness, a quality that everyone wants in the hub of their home.
We think that white kitchens are an incredible option. With many people choosing open plan living for their kitchen, by keeping the room as light as possible will make the space feel even more open and large, which is a quality that many people are looking for. We particularly love the Kensington Kitchen we created with 2LG’s, which is finished in Wimbourne White by Farrow and Ball.
We’ve been incredibly busy here at Naked Kitchens, creating some new, absolutely beautiful kitchens! As well as creating new kitchens for clients, if you come to visit us here in Norfolk, you’ll see that our showroom has completely changed, and we’ve had a lot of new additions!
One of these new additions is the gorgeous Oyster Catcher kitchen. A compact, traditional style kitchen that has some beautiful bespoke detailing. With shaker style doors, square beading and an Iroko worktop, this kitchen is every traditional kitchen lover’s dream! This kitchen is just a starting point for what you can achieve with Naked Kitchens.
We create so many beautiful kitchens for our customers here at Naked Kitchens, but as we are supply only, once the kitchens have been delivered that’s often the last we will ever see of them. However, sometimes we are lucky enough to be able to organise a photoshoot in the clients home so we can create some images and be able to share and inspire other customers, and that’s exactly what’s happening today!
Our creative director, in-house photographer and kitchen designer were up at the crack of dawn today to travel down from our workshop to London to photograph one of the beautiful kitchens we’ve recently created. An incredible open plan room with the most stunning island that is so different to anything we’ve ever created before. A contemporary take on a very traditional timber, with a handle that is a new take on our J-groove. The Walnut cabinets pair perfectly with the bespoke island made by our sister company Norfolk Oak. With beautiful earthy accessories, there’s no doubt this kitchen is going to look absolutely stunning!
We’ve got a lot more snaps to come, but we thought we’d give you a quick behind the scenes glimpse of whats to come!
