Kitchen trends: top colours for 2018

Working in the interior design and kitchen restoration world, we love seeing the design trends that sweep the nation. As 2018 unfolds, we are watching the colour trends which are coming out of major design firms and also rising from the grass roots. Here are a few of our favourite picks for 2018:

Ultra Violet

After several years of more muted or natural shades, the Pantone Color Institute is mixing it up with a truly zingy shade of purple. The Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is Ultra Violet, and they describe it as a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade. It’s certainly likely to divide opinions, and we expect colour palettes and design swatches around the world to be either for or against. Whatever your feeling, it should make for an interesting year as this shade can also be tricky to pair with anything other than a neutral. If you are considering a kitchen restoration, it’s a tricky shade as its bold hues aren’t a conventional match for an older building.

Heart Wood

Paint manufacturing giant Dulux have also announced their colour of 2018. A much more muted shade, Heart Wood has the rich tones and is a beautiful warm pink. A versatile shade, it’s easy to pair with delicate, feminine hues; earthy shades and natural greens; or even blues to create a more neutral or masculine colour palette. Of the two, we expect to see Heart Wood in more Surrey kitchen restorations – and we’re certainly better able to offer stones that are close to this rich pink than the vivid violet picked by Pantone!

Unicorn colours

For shy, mythical creatures unicorns have been everywhere in 2017 and now they’re taking over interior design. Colour palettes range from rainbow bright to more subtle shades inspired by the elegance and beauty. Unicorns appear in myths and legends from around the world, and were spotted in China and Greece over 2,000 years ago. Today, you can choose from classic and elegant, the white marble unicorn, if you like, to zany and fun, like a Compac rainbow. For kitchen restorations in period properties, we’d recommend a mix of the two: classic for fixtures, such as kitchen worktops, and zany for accessories, such as tea towels, toasters, tea pots and artwork.

Retro pop

Sometimes it feels like modern designers spend their lives wandering round museums, but one trend we love that’s been dragged out of the attic is the retro pop of colour. Originally based around free-standing or semi-built-in appliances, such as fridges and cookers, the retro pop adds a splash of colour and vintage style without the commitment of a permanent fixture. It’s a great choice for a kitchen renovation in a period building as it’s a nod to the essential character of your home while also being bang on trend. Retro pop is now spreading to woodwork, including tables and cabinetry, and kitchen worktops.

Limestone is easy to care for making it a great choice for kitchen worktops, bathroom tiles and flooring indoors and out. Ideally, limestone should be professionally sealed. As well as making it easier to clean and care for, this ensures that no bacteria or dirt can get trapped in the surface and reduced the chance of scratches and stains.

Natural stone is quarried from the earth in slabs, which are then cut and fit to size. As they’re shaped, the stone worker has to make decisions about how the stone will be finished, which is to say what kind of surface the stone will have. In the wild, stone has a rough, rugged surface, which is unfinished and untreated. This can have sharp edges, inappropriate for the home. At the other extreme, beautiful marble statues typically have a highly polished finish, enhancing the natural radiance of the stone. Natural […]
