Kitchen Trends You’ll Love in Summer and Beyond

Kitchen Trends You’ll Love in Summer and Beyond

Ready to breathe new life into your space? Whether your kitchen desperately needs a full redesign or a small refresh, we have just the article for you.

It features some of the biggest trends in the world of kitchens – in 2024 and beyond. Read on for some of our favourite ideas for this year’s summer season…

‘Butter Yellow’ Kitchens

There’s nothing like a coat or two of paint to really freshen up your space. Make the paint a light and breezy summery shade and you really are laughing (or at the very least, smiling). That’s what a bright colour can do for you and your home. 

Go on, then…create a kitchen you won’t be able to wait to come home to. Just add a slick of ‘butter yellow’ – a mix between cream and yellow, says New ID Living – to a feature wall, the wall adjacent to your dining table, or indeed anywhere else in your space. 

If you’re not ready to go all-out with a new lick of paint, add accessories in a light and airy colour palette of butter yellow and your favourite, complementing shade. Or go for a bolder shade of yellow. Whatever takes your fancy.

Black is Back

‘Black is back’, says House Beautiful. Well, it never really went away, did it? We all love a touch of black in our wardrobes and many choose to go for the bold shade in the home too.

At the absolute other end of the spectrum to butter yellow, black will add immediate interest to a room. Again, paint a feature wall in your kitchen, or go for it and incorporate black cabinetry into your space.

Slab Splashbacks

Statement splashbacks are picking up pace in the world of kitchen design. ‘Unlike traditional splashbacks that just cover the area above your stovetop, slab splashbacks are larger, rectangular pieces of stone that run across the wall behind. They're both a luxury statement, and a way to create a more seamless look in your kitchen.’ says House Beautiful

Looking for a budget-friendly alternative to marble? The site says porcelain or quartz are worth a look.

Easy Storage Solutions

Smart storage is a trend? Absolutely! According to Which?, ‘effective and easy-access storage solutions’ are vital. The reason? People are cooking and hosting more - and most people don’t have the luxury of a separate pantry.

Pinterest is your go-to for organisation ideas for kitchens of all sizes. Create a Pinterest board (essentially an online notice board) and have fun adding some fun storage solutions to it.

Choose the right storage and you can look forward to having clear worktops - ‘tidy kitchen, tidy mind’ and all that!

Sustainable Additions

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword, it’s vital - and we all need to do our bit to ensure the future of our planet. If we can do that in the kitchen too, happy days. Choose sustainable materials for your kitchen; whether you opt for sustainable smaller details, like  wooden chopping boards, or you go for wood cabinetry, you’ll be glad to play your part.
