Houzz 2018 Kitchen Trends UK

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.

A Round Up of 2017 Kitchen Trends

2017 has definitely been the year for changing trends in kitchens. We’ve seen some incredibly beautiful trends throughout the year, but also a few that we’re happy to see never return!

Whilst we like to see all of the different interior trends throughout the year, we never create kitchens just to go along with those trends. We like to create kitchens that will stand the test of time and would never be considered a fad, so despite some of our kitchens being incredibly modern, they will never be out of fashion as they have so many timeless features within their designs. We have incorporated some trends into the designs we have created this year as we know they will last, but there are a few that we knew would be very short-lived. This post is simply a round up of our favourite trends from the past year, and we hope you enjoy re-living it with us!
