Kitchen design trends for 2014

White kitchens & cream kitchens

White kitchens & cream kitchens will continue to be the most popular choices for 2014. Although many consumers often consider mixing white or cream with another colour, buying a fitted kitchen is a costly exercise & in the end, most consumers tend to choose the safest neutral colours.

Several of the latest white & cream kitchens are pictured below.

Using glass splashbacks to add colour to white units

In 2013 the trend was for plain white kitchen cabinets combined with a colourful glass splashback to add colour. This trend will continue into 2014.

An example of a white gloss kitchen with a purple glass splashback shown below

Using units or accessories to add colour to white units

A new trend is also emerging. Rather than using a glass splashback to add a splash of colour to plain white kitchens cabinets, people instead are using a few bright coloured cabinets or accessories. This is shown in the 3 pictures below. This is a great idea if you’re working to a tight budget as glass splashbacks are expensive so big savings can be made if they are not needed.
