The Latest Inspirational Fitted Kitchen Trends

From clever storage solutions to beautiful surface finishes, new kitchen trends are always emerging. While creating a timeless kitchen that won’t date too quickly is, of course, essential. Striking the right balance between the most recent design ideas and tried and tested approaches will help ensure your interior stands the test of time. Looking to the latest trends is a great way to find inspiration and discover new products and innovations. To help you get started, we’ve assembled a selection of stylish and practical concepts we’ve seen gain traction in recent months.


Warm Colours

Colour trends are always evolving. And, while it doesn’t seem long since elegant greys and tranquil forest greens reigned supreme, recently warm earthy tones have become increasingly popular. Ranging from subtle stone and neutral greige to rich terracotta, these more wholesome hues are ideal for brightening up a contemporary kitchen. They pair effortlessly with white walls and natural materials, establishing a perfectly timeless feel.


Chic Black Interiors

You can’t go wrong with a luxurious monochrome colour scheme. And if you’re looking to make a dramatic design statement, a bold black kitchen makes a fantastic choice. All-black kitchens certainly made an impression when they first started turning heads last year. However, they have gradually been working their way into our homes, bringing with them a chic and sophisticated ambience. Wood flooring and white walls offer a stylish way to lift and brighten this impressive colour scheme.


Calming Schemes

Taking inspiration from the much-loved Scandinavian design aesthetic and incorporating clean lines and natural textures, our love of calming, clutter-free interiors continues. Think soft muted colours, minimal detailing, wood accents, and plenty of natural light. Practical storage and an efficient layout are key to achieving this trendy yet timeless pared-back look.


Black Worktops

With their clean aesthetic and fantastic ability to reflect light throughout a space, white marble-effect quartzes have long been the worktop material of choice. However, as dark and sophisticated black kitchens have grown in popularity, striking black worktops prove the ideal accompaniment to help accentuate that sense of drama. An exquisitely veined charcoal black worktop makes a glamorous finishing touch to a statement contemporary kitchen.


Tactile Finishes

We also expect bold textural finishes to remain popular, with an emphasis on slat-panelled surfaces, woodgrain and organic stone effects. Many suppliers have extended their collection of standout ceramic, wood veneer, and laminate finishes to reflect this increase in demand.


Statement Splashbacks

We’re similarly upping the drama when it comes to our splashbacks. From lavish marble-effect slab surfaces to shabby-chic foxed mirror finishes, a stylish splashback offers a fantastic way to introduce a luxurious finishing touch to your kitchen.


Sustainable Materials

Sustainability is only going to be increasingly important going forward. And this is already being reflected in our approach to kitchen design. Many designers and homeowners are utilising sustainable materials such as reclaimed and FSC timber and carbon-neutral worktops. It’s also worth researching how your kitchen is produced, as many brands are moving towards more environmentally friendly manufacturing techniques.

Sleek Built-In Cabinetry

We look forward to seeing the highly sought-after handleless aesthetic taken a step further, with designers building units into the architecture of a room. Seamlessly integrating your cabinetry into your wall, hiding the top of each cupboard, creates an even more sleek and streamlined look. This trend is perfect for open-plan or broken-plan living, where your kitchen needs to merge effortlessly with the rest of your space.

Modern Kitchen Area


Luxurious & Practical Pantries

One sophisticated and practical kitchen feature that continually proves to stand the test of time is the pantry cupboard. A versatile pantry cupboard offers the ideal place to store provisions, small appliances, coffee-making facilities, baking equipment, and more. Plus, with our clever pocket door system, you can hide or reveal the contents of your cabinet without ever inhibiting your workflow.


Versatile Seating Spaces

While kitchens have long been the heart of the home, the recent increase in remote working has seen them take on an even more versatile role. As a place to cook, relax, catch up on emails, and entertain the kids, seating makes a valuable addition. A dedicated seating area can prove more flexible and thus more useful than a small breakfast bar. We have designed several island dining areas for clients like the one below and have no doubt they will continue to prove popular.


From creating an interior that captures your imagination to introducing solutions to further enhance your lifestyle, the latest trends strive to improve upon our current approach to kitchen design, helping you get more from your home. They offer a great source of inspiration and, when combined with your own personal touches, can help you achieve a beautiful, practical, and timeless space.
