With the Summer finally upon us, we should think about summer trends in the kitchen and where the market is heading.

Summer Shades

Keeping your space as light and airy as possible is the order of the day. Choosing a light, bright

colour palette with maybe a hint of metallic is definitely the way to go. Copper and bronze, a Stainless steel are all in fashion - with the latter adding a cooling effect to your kitchen space.

Social Spaces

Late night soirees, cocktail parties and barbeques are all synonymous with summer, even in the UK! In order to get the best out of these activities make as much room as possible for people with an open plan kitchen layout. Incorporate bar tops and kitchen islands for serving up food and add some soft furnishings to ensure guests are comfortable and relaxed.

Bring the Outdoors In!

Add some outdoor touches to your kitchen by growing herbs in interesting containers. A touch of greenery can add a nice touch. Remember to maximise the natural light in your kitchen space, you might want to consider large floor to ceiling windows.

Invest in storage space

In the heat of summer, we want everything to be tidy, clean and fuss free. Remove clutter by investing in storage spaces such as kitchen islands, cabinets and hidden drawers. Also, you may want to consider handleless units for that minimalist look. 

Gloss over things!

Gloss finishes are the key to modern summer living. High shine helps to create a feeling of space and helps to reflect light back into the room. Combine this with bright colours for the most effective results.
