From quartz worktops to imposing fridge freezers and instant access to boiling water, here are some of the hot trends that the industry, and our customers, are getting excited by at the moment.
Instant access to 100°C water – A hot tap has become a must have feature in all modern kitchens, thanks to advances in energy efficiency, and water saving features. Quooker are the leading brand in high-end hot taps, but not the only option by a long shot.
Induction still rules supreme – The speed of heating and wipe clean surface means we’re seeing the preference for induction hobs over gas continue. The desire for gas hobs hasn’t been entirely extinguished, of course, and gas-on-glass hobs are great option for those wanting to go gas and still maintain an easily cleaned unit.
Blue hues – Blue is such a versatile colour, particularly the darker shades that are making their way into kitchens in a big way this year. The rich blue display in our Martlesham showroom has seen a lot of interest recently.
Quartz worktops – It feels solid like granite, is just as durable, yet has a more consistent colour. Not to mention Quartz’ resistance to bacteria and ability to last the years with minimal upkeep. It’s a lifelong option that’s caught the moment. Light colours and faux marble effects are making a big impact this year.
Painted wood cabinetry – It’s rustic yet modern and suits a country kitchen just as much as it does a modern, light and airy kitchen. Painted wood cabinetry is scratch resistant too, which means your dream kitchen will still be the stuff of dreams in five or ten years’ time.
Corners over curves – As great as curves are, particularly in smaller kitchens, they’re something of a design choice. Defined corners, which generally come with a storage space boost over their curvier cousins, have seen a big resurgence this season. All our cabinetry, curved or straight, is all handmade in Martlesham, Suffolk.
Cool refrigeration – And by cool we mean freezing. And there’s no better place to keep your food frozen in style than the Fisher 7 Paykel RS90a1. This stainless steel french door fitted monolith is a cool addition to any modern kitchen. It’s also easily integrated to look like a pantry cupboard, blending seamlessly into your more classically designed dream kitchen.
