Kitchen design moving away from white, says report

By KBBDaily on 14th November 2017 - 08:00am

A new report by Hettich has found that a new trend is set to emerge in kitchen design, moving away from the “gloss white finishes which have long prevailed” to kitchen furniture and appliance “adorned with classy black surfaces”.

According to the 'Living Space Kitchen' trend report, furniture interiors are going darker “in general” with the exception of the refrigerator, which is “moving into focus with bright accent colours”.

The report also found that “consumers are now more likely to have a say in creating their own surface designs”, and that the “open-plan, live-in kitchen continues to develop as a communication hub and central meeting place”.
