Southall, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2014 -- Home design trends are slowly changing and adapting to new technologies. This year, the kitchen industry is starting to shift away from the usual white space, which is a common trend over the past two years. Natural materials, brass accessories, monochrome minimalism, and patterned splash backs are now in.
Here are some of the emerging compelling kitchen trends in 2014.
1.Warmer Metal Fixings
Brash, stainless steel and chrome colder metals are out. Warmer metal tones, like brass and copper, are in. Iron and similar tones are reappearing, leaning towards the timeless traditional. Bold brass and copper kitchen hoods and appliances will be a hit in 2014, invading trade fairs and shows in the UK.
2.Compact Corner Sinks
Small, compact corner sinks serve as an ideal solution for small kitchens, regardless whether it is a chick, contemporary model or a traditional one. Kitchen corners have been used in the past as countertop or alliance, so it is a welcome change.
Outside kitchens have been growing and popular in the United States. Other countries are to pick up the trend, however weather is a limiting factor. Countries with severe climates in Europe, such as United Kingdom, can make use of a sliding glass screen. This would make frequent cleaning from weathering, while enabling adaptability in its use, both in fair and questionable weather conditions.
Over the past 5 years, hidden spots under cupboards have been a trend. Exposed, sconce lighting is now in. Lights should not be hidden, so showpiece lighting fixtures work. Directional sconce lighting is also picking up the trend. The style of the lighting fixture should match the style of the kitchen.
5.Burst of Blue
Blue is the color of 2014. One type of blue should be mixed with other blue hues: relaxing navy blues, energizing sky blues, lively electric turquoise. If done right, it creates an amazing look, complementing well with blue accessories, cupboards and tiles.
Natural black countertops, whether granite or quartz are in. The idea is not new, but is a popular trend. Either glossy or dull matte finish does the trick. Granite worktops are reasonably low maintenance. It serves as a beautiful, durable, and heat-resistant surface suitable for meal preparation and daily use. It lasts a lifetime and comes in a range of colors.
Kitchen cabinets have been useful in the past, but there is a growing trend towards showing off kitchen accessories, ceramics, porcelain, among others to people. The trend is growing rapidly, as more people are getting more inclined to the idea of not just showing off their fancy kitchen, but everything else in it.
