2018 Kitchen Trends

With our round up of 2017 post, we let you know all of the trends we were loving for the kitchen in 2017, and so we thought it was only right that we share our prediction of kitchen trends for 2018. With January now over, there have been some clear paths set, making it much easier to see which trends are emerging, and which ones look set to stay!

METALS
The use of metal in the kitchen is something that we saw more and more of towards the end of 2017, but 2018 is set to see metals used in much more of a statement way. With beautiful darker colours being used in kitchens, brighter metals are being used alongside to provide beautiful accents throughout the room. Traditional metals such as gold and silver will always have a place in kitchen designs, but bolder metals like brass and copper are really pushing their way through. Copper in particular- a metal generally only seen in the kitchen in the form of saucepans- is being used to create incredible accessories, such as faucets and sinks, with a beautiful patina forming over time.

Birdie Fortescue And Naked Kitchens

We always love it when our beautiful kitchens get noticed by people. Whilst we try to share as many images as possible of our kitchens, we are sure that there will still be people who have not seen our kitchens! So when local interiors company Birdie Fortescue contacted us to see if they could use our show room as the backdrop for photos of their spring/summer collection, we didn’t hesitate to say yes, as this is a brilliant way to show off our incredible kitchens through a new channel!

Parliamentary Review 2017

A highlight of 2017 that we haven’t yet shared with everyone is that Naked Kitchens has been invited to contribute to the 2017 Parliamentary Review for the Manufacturing Industry.

Sister company to Norfolk Oak, experts in solid hardwoods, Naked Kitchens are a leading manufacturer of fully bespoke kitchens. Until Naked Kitchens, the concept of an excellent bespoke product which more than challenged the very top end, but at a sensible price, was seen as unattainable. With the incredible reputation of Norfolk Oak behind it, the development of Naked Kitchens was the chance for a completely clean and fresh start, to really inject the industry with some new innovative thinking. We have a deep respect for the wood we use, a commitment to sustainable forestry and the crafting of long-lasting products with minimal waste.

Swimming For Marie Curie

Last weekend in every major city of Great Britain, thousands of brave men and women have taken part in Swimathon, dusting off their swimming gear and diving straight into the challenge of swimming to a variety of distances, from 1.5 kilometres to 5 kilometres.

This is all to raise money for Marie Curie, the leading care providing charity that supports over 40,000 people with terminal illness. Marie Curie practise what they preach, regularly researching into the best way of caring for someone at the end of their life, among all the other amazing things they do day-today. This fantastic charity and the service they provide is completely free of charge to patients and their families.
