Nature Inspired

Last year, Green kitchen décor took off in a huge way. From light, calming tones such as sage Green to the rich, bold hues of Heritage Green, this diverse colour palette was thoroughly explored in 2023. In 2024, we expect this design trend to continue with a rise in kitchens inspired by nature. Alongside green cabinetry, we expect to see an increase in the use of indoor plants, floral arrangements, and natural materials across the likes of worktops, flooring etc. This design, courtesy of our Discovery range, highlights how to perfectly balance elements such as splashes of lavender and wood grain textures with Reed Green doors.

A discovery kitchen range is shown with Reed Green and Taupe units, wooden kitchen island and with shelving either side containing potted plants, cook books and lavender blankets. In the seating ares of the island between the shelving there are 2 reed green bar stools. Above the kitchen island are 3 lantern lights. The back units are Reed green and true handleless tall units with a stainless steel double oven placed in the middle of the units. To the left there is a wooden table with 4 white chairs with green cushions, behind here there are double glass doors in the garden where you can see some hedging and the grass. Just in front of the table is a cashmere couch with grey cushions and lavender flowers on top of the table as well as lavender pictures hanging on the wall to the left.


Communal Spaces

The evolution of the kitchens purpose marches on in 2024. This room has become a hub for socialising and consuming entertainment alongside traditional purposes such as cooking and dining. Therefore, when redesigning your kitchen, its important to consider the needs of your family. Thankfully, there is an array of stylish solutions to your communal space goals.
