The all white kitchen is still really popular, but in 2018 it is predicted that more of us will opt for alternative industrial materials for worktops and cabinets. Those beautiful decorative Mediterranean-style tiles will become increasing popular and online searches for cheaper ‘Eco’ materials are on the increase. Pinterest recently reported that searches for ‘plywood’ are significantly on the up!
In 2017, we started so see more colours creep in to kitchen cabinet doors and worktops. With white cabinets being so popular for the last decade, 2017 saw changes as greys, blues and green colours flooded our kitchen designs.
The kitchen is still the heart of the home, a ‘living room’ where people are opting for comfortable furniture and furnishings, really wanting to make their kitchen a room people want to spend time in and socialise in.
The island, the peninsula and the breakfast bar are here to stay, so we expect to still be fabricating lots of those lovely statement Corian worktops for our customers. With people choosing to mix and match their worktop materials, we can expect to see some really eye-catching kitchen designs. The choice of worktop is still such an important part of designing and planning your kitchen, this is where our expertise is. We love to help our customers when it comes to this. However, the best bit of our job, without a doubt, is getting to see the finished article.
Customers still want worktops that are:
- Non-Porous and stain resistant
- Flexible, with endless design options
