How to Style Your Kitchen with the Latest Trends

 10 May 2018

Whether you’re an interiors expert or design novice, keeping up with the latest trends can be all consuming. How do you stay relevant without constantly redecorating?

We’ve selected our top five interior trends to incorporate into your kitchen, so you can stay ahead of the curve, without the overhaul.

Grey and White Minimalism

Grey and white is one of the most popular kitchen trends, with clean, minimal detailing and wooden accents. If it’s not completely to your taste, simply pay homage using these small additions:

Round vases grouped in different sizes are popping up on shelves all over Instagram. Place these above clean, white countertops and you’ve got minimalism made.

Update your pendant lighting with grey or white shades, then finish with some striped tea towels — it’ll be everything your inner-Scandi will adore.

Foliage Fever

Greenery isn’t just Pantone’s 2017 Colour of The Year; it’s also one of the latest kitchen colour trends. If you don’t want to commit to a drastic paint job, simply plant the seed…

Let the outside in and combine your love of cooking with an interior must-have — the houseplant. Grow an indoor herb garden, or drape a climbing vine over exposed kitchen shelving.

Muted green table settings and vintage glassware are essentials for your next dinner party. Serve cocktails in grass-hued goblets, or set your usual table with a sprig of leaves and sage-toned dishes.

Dark Luxe    

We all love a bit of luxury, but deep, wintry hues may not feel relevant year round. Your kitchen can keep its light — just make room for a little dark romance.

Welcome the moody blues with a navy-tiled splashback. Alongside the Zip HydroTap in Matte Black finish, you’ll be stirring your warming soups in style.

Add more luxe with a bouquet of brooding blooms. Deep purples, blood-red roses and dark green leaves are perfect for romantic winter centrepieces.

The Marble Renaissance

Seen everywhere from mobile phone cases to statement tabletops, this trend is only going to get bigger… but let’s start small.

Coasters aren’t just for the coffee table; protect your kitchen surfaces with a marble set — one under your favourite scented candle, or as a spoon-rest next to the hob.

You could also put the plastic away and opt for a marble cutting board. It’s beautiful, durable, and doubles as a cheese board or heat mat for stylish serving at the table.

Millennial Pink for the Modern Adult

We’ve seen lighting fixtures and cabinet hardware win the interiors race of late, but you can still go for more (rose) gold.

Combine fashion and function with the Zip HydroTap Elite in Brushed Rose Gold, perfect with matching saucepans displayed above the stove.

Rose gold cutlery and utensils are also having a moment, which will make meals feel fabulous, and bring that extra pop of pink to the table.
