With clever advances in technology helping to bring costs down, customization and bespoke design are becoming part of the zeitgeist. Thanks to Airbnb, we can now customise our accommodation according to our needs and preferences; and thanks to WordPress we can build our own websites, making them look virtually any way we want them to. So why should kitchen design be any different?
After our team visited Salone del Mobile, IMM Cologne and Maison et Objet over the past 9 months, it has become clear that ordinary people are finally being designed ‘for’ and no longer designed ‘at’. Eureka! This means you can expect a new level of personalised design when it comes to your dream kitchen and living space.
Here are some kitchen design inspirations for 2017 from the Living Kitchen exhibition in Cologne to stimulate your creative juices and help you and your kitchen designer create the kitchen you truly want.
- If you were a colour…
2017 is the year to express yourself and colour is an excellent vehicle to do just that. Take a look at these creative uses of colour in the kitchen.
2. Curves in the kitchen
We’re often preconditioned to think of rooms in box shapes and consequentially, our kitchens get the right-angle treatment too. Why not break the mould and introduce some sensual curves into your design?
3. It’s all in the geometry
Bring some movement and focus into your kitchen area with geometric motifs and tiles. Believe it or not, there are some companies out there who will even customise your tile design for you!
4. Island style
Challenge your assumptions about kitchen islands with these trestle-table-inspired designs!
5. See the light
Don’t just think functionality when planning your lighting. Think, atmosphere!
6. Get into the mood
If you don’t have a “bright white” personality, embrace your inner “shades of grey” in your kitchen design through moody colours, moody lighting and a little bit of drama.
Look out for “Part 2” where we’ll cover the remaining design inspirations for your new kitchen.
