It goes without saying that the past 12 months have certainly not been what anyone could have expected or predicted. At Naked Kitchens, we are dedicated to be operating safely and following guidelines and guidance. True to our namesake, we strive to be transparent with our customers throughout every part of our process. This is something that has been ingrained in our business model from the very beginning.
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 been lucky enough to have had another set of client photos recently sent in of their recently finished kitchen. A beautifully simple and elegant design that is perfect for this busy family and their lifestyle.
The lighting that you choose for your kitchen can make or break a room very very quickly. It is important to ensure that you have the right level of lighting in the room so that you can easily complete tasks as well as being able to fully relax in your kitchen.
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.
It’s safe to say that we’re already feeling the cold here in England. With the temperatures now in the single figures and the snow sign popping up on the dashboard, we’re craving coming home to a warm cosy house, and there’s one room in particular that we know we’re probably going to spend more time in than any other- the kitchen.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and during winter this is the time that we want it to feel the most cosy and inviting it possibly can be. Whether this is a complete renovation before the cold weather hits, or just an update in time for Christmas, we have some tips to making your kitchen perfect for winter.
Colour- Whilst instinctively we turn to the darker colours during the colder months, darker colours are not the only option for making your kitchen winter perfect. We actually love brighter, bold colours during the winter months too, and we’ve actually recently created so many kitchens of this type. Having a more colourful kitchen is a brilliant way to brighten up your home. By having a room that is fresh and exciting, it really makes you want to come home.
