Design Trends for North London Extensions

Big kitchens are in. No longer is the galley or compact kitchen fashionable. Walls are knocked down or home extensions added to accommodate the new trend for open plan living. It is a blessing for cooks who don’t have to squeeze past their helpers, or shoo everyone out so they can get on with things, and you can talk to your guests while you are preparing food and tidying up. 

How to Acquire your Dream Kitchen

The desire for a spacious kitchen has motivated home extensions North London wide. Residents are able to create their dream kitchen without sacrificing current space on the ground floor. When you extend for an elegant new kitchen diner, you can reorganise your downstairs layout to accommodate everyone, perhaps adding a downstairs cloakroom, a utility room or a luxury wet room.

What are the Latest Kitchen Colour Trends?

When your new kitchen space is planned, you’ll want to take the look up to the minute without risking it dating very quickly. Bold, bright colours are coming back in, but they can be introduced in a small way with your main colours in safe white, cream or grey. Black mixed with white and grey gives a smart Scandinavian theme that can be brightened up with lines and small blocks of colour or bright accessories. Colour could also be introduced in patterned tiles as a splash back. 

Dark or bright blue are in-vogue colours for interior design in 2014. In the kitchen you could have some of the kitchen unit doors painted blue, perhaps echoing the colour in a patterned window blind or curtain. One of the more modern options for splash backs is to use coloured glass instead of tiles, so you could add a toning blue there.

How to Introduce Natural Materials 

Getting back to nature is a theme for life this year, and offers real inspiration for your kitchen. In home extensions North London residents seem to be going for rustic looking wooden cabinets or shelving above painted units which pair well with plain and simple worktops. You could also introduce a bit of nature with butterflies, birds or flowers as motifs. Placing patterned vinyl behind plain glass for a splash back will do this for you.

Don’t forget the flooring. Cork is one of the most natural looking materials. Slate or natural stone porcelain or ceramic tiles add sophistication to a country kitchen look. Many tiles are suitable for both floors and walls. Other natural kitchens use wood or laminate flooring.
