Not only the place to prepare and eat food, but now also the office, classroom and backdrop to catch up with loved ones, with more and more time spent in the hub of the home, create a kitchen to suit you. Colour is a spectacular tool to express yourself and your personality in this key space.
A very popular trend that we’ve been seeing recently is to incorporate some form of walnut timber into kitchen designs. Dark, rich and intense, walnut is such a beautiful material to use in the kitchen.
When designing a kitchen for your busy family life, we know there are certain things to include in your design that will make your life so much easier. Having a lot of people in your kitchen can be incredibly stressful especially when they’re only young and need a an extra eye on them! We’ve come up with a handy list of everything we think you could include in your kitchen design to help keep chaos at bay.
When purchasing a new kitchen, there are so many different things to think about and lots of questions that need answering, but one element that we are asked about more than any other is our design service. There are many elements to our design service and a few different things that we need from you, so we thought we would make a guide just to answer any queries you may have before choosing this service.
We go through stages of loving different colours for the kitchen, and whilst some colours tend to come in and out of fashion very quickly, there are some colours that will stick around from season to season.
We wanted to show our appreciation to a colour that we know will always look good in a kitchen. Blue is a colour that will never go out of fashion for kitchens, and at the moment it’s definitely taking the colour crown!
We’ve had a lot of exciting projects happen here at Naked Kitchens, and one that seems to have gained a lot of attention recently is the Highgate Kitchen. An absolutely incredible design, made from beautiful stained walnut with some insane bespoke details. A brand new handle design which is sleek and contemporary, and an island design that simply knocks all other islands out of the water! With walnut legs, an integrated gas hob and a beautiful marble counter top, this island is one of the standout elements of this modern earthy kitchen.
It’s been a pretty busy year here at Naked Kitchens. We’ve created so many beautiful kitchens for our customers, doubled the size of our showroom, took on projects we could only dream about and designed kitchens that completely broke the boundaries of traditional kitchen design.
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.
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!
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.
