Moving towards metal
Metal shelving is replacing open wood shelves as the gold standard giving kitchens attitude, style and the opportunity to showcase beautiful glasses, plates and décor pieces. These shelves are often used when upper cabinets have been dropped or they are used in conjunction with cupboards.
Get a handle on it
When it comes to kitchen door handles, even leather rings and strip handles are gaining in popularity. But for a truly modern kitchen design – the best handle is no handle at all. Cut-out handles and handleless cupboards are in! If that’s not your style – brass appears to be the stand-out metal for 2019 giving a luxurious finish to cabinets. Pair them with brass taps so that you carry the look throughout the kitchen.
Make a splash with patterned splashbacks
Funky splashbacks and patterned tiles are having their day in the sun and introducing a new level of style to kitchens. They make a statement and can be paired with more unconventional sinks which is also an area of the kitchen getting more attention: bright metallic, hammered finishes, intricate details and even gold.
