We're Feeling Blue

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! Read more

KBB Retail and Design Awards 2019
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. Read more

Living Coral

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. Read more

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! Read more

Autumnal Living

Autumnal Living
It's that time of year when everything starts to change again. The weather gets colder, days get darker, nature starts to turn and homes need to be cosy and warm to battle this weather. Trends adapt to these changes and are generally based around making your home comfortable and the perfect haven for the colder months. Fabrics get thicker and more luxurious and colours get richer and more intense as the warmer end of the colour spectrum is utilised. Boot rooms come into their own at this time of the year, and are the perfect place to kick off wet, muddy boots and coats after long country walks. Read more
