Coronavirus Update – Reassurance for our Customers

During this period, we are remaining fully-open and where possible operating a ‘business-as-usual’ policy. However, we are taking extra precautions as the health and wellbeing of both our clients and our employees is our top priority.

All of our kitchen designers continue to work from our office or from their homes. Customers are always welcome to phone or email us with their rough plans and ideas and we will prepare any kitchen designs and quotes, as per usual.

Regrettably, we have had to postpone all face-to-face meetings at our showroom for the time being. We will be able to reschedule any pre-booked appointments once the current situation improves and in the meantime we are more than happy to arrange an alternative consultation over Skype, phone or email.

Please click ‘read more’ to learn about the precautions we are currently taking.

Why Our Ply?

The birch plywood used to create our kitchen cabinets comes from the heart of the Scandinavian forests, the European birch species that grows there produces a light coloured, fine textured and dense timber; the perfect properties for our state-of-the-art manufacturing processes.

Birch plywood has always been used widely in the construction, furniture, packaging and even automotive industries due to its excellent strength and durability. Although most birch plywoods have these brilliant physical properties, there are certain plywood’s which are superior…

Heathwood Gardens

Traditional shaker kitchens is something we have always been famous for here at Naked Kitchens. It’s what we started our design journey with, and whilst we have created some incredible designs that are more contemporary and unique, we’ve never forgotten about the ever-beautiful, classic shaker.

Why Green is Great In The Kitchen

Green is a colour that has been used in interiors for such a long time now. However, it’s only quite recently that we’re starting to see this translated into kitchen decor. From intense dark forest greens to the softest mint green colour, green is back in the kitchen, and in a big way.

2019 Interior Trends

5 interior trends you need to know about for 2019

With the New Year just around the corner, many of us are beginning to think about what to do with
our interiors for 2019. When the Christmas decorations come down, our homes can look a little bare
— so if you’re considering a revamp, January is the perfect time to incorporate some of the latest
styles. From metallic details and geometric patterns, to natural stone finishes and this year’s must-
have colour, we’ve got all the details on the looks that are set to be big in 2019.

Story Telling 
People are increasingly wanting to know the story behind their furniture, as well as the materials
and craftsmanship that go into each piece. Whether it’s an authentic Carrara marble worktop, or a
unique antique accessory, features with an unusual origin are great conversation pieces that never
go out of style. And in 2019, we can expect to see a similar trend for furniture, too.
It’s no longer enough to simply have stylish furnishings — you should know exactly how and where
they were built, too. So, if you’re looking to update your living room suite, make sure you buy from a
retailer that crafts their own furniture to order. Sofas by Saxon build all of their sofas and chairs
using quality materials, including responsibly-sourced, FSC-certified European hardwood, and can
tailor any detail to suit your requirements. Go for a couch in a Chesterfield jewel-toned velvet shade
for a look which is right on-trend.
Not an unusual origin, but certainly one to be proud of; Naked Kitchen is a British manufacturer that designs, creates and manufactures everything on one site in North Norfolk. FSC-certified European birch ply is used for all of the kitchen carcasses that has been sustainably-sourced. Available in so many different designs, a Naked Kitchen is incredibly versatile and are sure to be able to design your dream kitchen.

Kitchen Trends and Colours

Every couple of months there is definitely a shift within home interior trends. Preferences start to change and you can see when people start to move on. Often, this is simply colour palettes changing with the seasons, or impractical trends slowly becoming less popular.

One of the first trends we’ve noticed emerging is the introduction of much warmer colour palettes into the kitchen. Whilst bright bold colours have been popular throughout the spring summer time, it is clear that as we are now transitioning into the autumn winter trends, people are looking for the richer warmer tones for their room. We’re loving seeing beautiful rusty colours, deeper blues, azure greens and even mustard yellows making their way into the kitchen. These colours look even more beautiful with oak and walnut timber creating an intensely beautiful room. We even love the tones of mustard so much that we’ve created our own showroom kitchen in this colour! Combining this colour with Inchyra blue and walnut timber has created a kitchen that is so inviting and looks almost retro with its colour palette choices. We’re loving seeing these natural colours in the kitchen and can’t wait to see more beautiful designs!

Colour Kitchens

Even with summer completely over and the cold winter months settling in, we’re still so obsessed with creating colourful kitchens. The beautiful rich intense colours of our Ladbroke instantly give us all of the autumnal feels, with dark forest greens and rich walnut timber creating a beautiful cosy feeling.

However, it’s not just darker colour palettes that we’re loving at the moment, as we’ve recently designed some absolutely incredible bright, colourful kitchens. Instinctively, we’d normally gravitate to the darker colours on the spectrum to make the room feel warm and cosy, however recently the colours we have been loving have been the opposite of this.

Designed For Living

The kitchen is arguably the most important room in the house. It’s often the room that involves the most effort to get right and therefore rightfully becomes the hub of the house. A room that you’ve often dreamed of having a specific way for years, and when you’ve finally got the design you have always coveted, it’s a room that you want to show off to everyone. And whilst a Naked Kitchen is so beautiful, our kitchen designs are that and so much more. They’re designed for living.
