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.

We’re Feeling Blue

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!

Five Kitchen Trends in 2019

2018 has been a year of many different trends for interiors. We’ve seen colours dramatically change direction, different textures come into play and timber really taking the centre stage in kitchens, and a lot of these trends are likely to continue into 2019. We think there are a lot of new trends that will emerge in 2019 and we can’t wait to see them!

Year of the Honey- 2018 saw Dulux announce their colour of the year as Spiced Honey. Although slightly slow on the uptake this year, we do think that 2019 will be the year that we see this colour everywhere. Beautifully warm and comforting, this neutral colour is the perfect canvas for a kitchen. We also think that combining this colour with a brighter pop of colour, like Pantone’s Living Coral (colour of the year 2019) will create the most wonderful combination.

We’re Taking A Short Break…

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.

Living Coral

Somehow that time of year has come round again quicker than we can actually blink, and Pantone have released their colour of the year again! Last year we saw the incredibly bright Ultra Violet be crowned the winner, and whilst potentially not as popular as we anticipated, we definitely have seen rooms that have been inspired by this colour palette. Purple is such a luxurious colour that can be very intense, so it has to be used in the right way otherwise it can be very overpowering.

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.
