8 Kitchen Trends for 2018

From rising search frequencies on Pinterest to contemporary designs at this year’s KKB live, we’ve noted a few kitchen trends that are leading the way for 2018.

Broken-plan kitchens:

A growing trend that lessens the restrictions of existing walls and layouts of the home. Leicht’s “room-in-a-room” concept is effectively a walk-in space that incorporates kitchen and living room elements into one block.

Two-tone cabinets:

A great way to add interest to your kitchen. Hubble will help you choose the perfect colours from a RAL colour chart and your Leicht kitchen will be tailored to your choices.

Eco kitchens:

As we become increasingly conscious of the damage our day to day lives are having on the environment, there has been a strong increase in the search for environmentally friendly solutions. Leicht created the world’s first ‘Active House’ which not only powers itself, but two electric cars – but power saving appliances and sustainable materials are a great place to start!

Smart kitchen appliances:

It seems our love for technology shows no sign of slowing as search frequencies for ‘smart kitchen appliances’ continue to grow. Our favourite new feature is the Siemens ‘Home Connect’ app that lets you make your coffee from your phone!

Blue cabinets:

Whether it’s a ‘petrol blue’ for a modern kitchen or a darker, more traditional shade, things are looking blue for 2018 – in a very good way.

Concrete tiles:

We know concrete work tops have been a much-loved trend through recent years, but it seems the material is now making its way up the walls.

Dark Worktops:

It seems 2018 may be the year for the bold as people are enjoying darker, more impactful work tops. Check our Ceaserstone’s ‘Vanilla Noir‘ and ‘Piatra Grey’.

Matching living room furniture:

Carrying a design or style through to the rest of your home brings a real sense of cohesiveness and areas work together in harmony. Hubble are proud to offer beautifully bespoke features and storage solutions that can be tailored to match your kitchen.
