Our kitchens are working harder than ever. A space to be together – cook, chat, chop – we even do homework or office work in them. It’s akin to working in a nearby café, just with cheaper coffee.
Updating this room to keep up with trends can seem a daunting task. However, it’s an investment that shouldn’t be overlooked for two reasons:
- It’s a central part of the daily enjoyment of your home.
- The benefits it can provide when you come to sell, i.e., more interest, faster sale, higher offers.
This year’s most on-trend features are many new things, but here are a few of our favourites.
- Hot water taps
Even waiting for the electric kettle to boil is old-fashioned now. Instant hot water from a tap means you can get your caffeine hit even quicker between Zoom meetings.
- Colour bursts
Red is in for kitchens. Post-box red is one of the most popular options, but if that’s too much for you, don’t worry, other shades are catching the eye. Pair up muted shades like cashmeres, greys, and truffle to add a splash of something different without it being overpowering.
- Statement pieces
Create a wow factor with splashbacks, work surfaces, and even tiling. Clashing patterns can create an interior that expresses bold, luxe chic. Herringbone tiling is currently one of the most popular for adding some extra glamour.
If you’re thinking of moving and want to be in your next home by Christmas, now is a fantastic time of year to find a highly motivated buyer.
