Every season comes with its own trends and at Magnet we are constantly looking for ways to use these. Below, we uncover some new looks and show how you can make the most of your kitchen.
Adding a splash of colour is an easy and cost effective way to update a room without re-designing the entire kitchen. Colour can be injected into a kitchen in a number of different ways from bright splashbacks, statement doors or retro accessories.
Glass splashbacks in bold colours can create a truly contemporary feel in the kitchen and are available in over 50 variations from Magnet. The reflective surface can make a kitchen look bigger and brighter and if you’re looking to make an impact, choose a contrasting colour to the rest of the kitchen.
With Miami heat coming to a kitchen near you, the simple addition of a splashback can really bring a kitchen to life.
It’s all about deep aubergine and rich plumy tones this year, so there is no reason why these colours can’t be seen in the kitchen. Take the Lila range from Magnet, oozing with style and sophistication, which sees purple and aubergine hues mingle together beautifully in this contemporary kitchen.
Colour doesn’t necessarily need to be bold and bright, for a more toned down take on this trend, create a unique kitchen by mixing various coloured units together. Take purple units from the Lila and team them with frontals from the new Pura kitchen so the white balances out the flashes of colour.
Set to be a big trend for 2012, soft cream tones in the kitchen offer a cosy alternative to white. To make maximum impact, team with a chunky worktop to create a stylish element.
If you’re looking to jump on the patriotic band-wagon, a shaker style kitchen is the way forward.
With the Royal wedding last year and the Queen’s Jubilee coming up, there’s a huge trend for retro, kitsch styling, which lends itself to kitchen units through traditional larders and Shaker style front.
For those looking for a practical and yet statement worktop, the antibacterial range from Silestone is a fantastic choice. Available in over 50 colours, the worktop contains Microban® antibacterial protection, which is perfect for busy families.
Avoiding clutter is the key to a relaxing environment in the kitchen and the best way to achieve this is by investing in cutting edge corner units or larders. Not all kitchens are large, so make the most of the space that is available to help keep everything out of the way.
Slot an internal storage unit into an existing kitchen, for an effective way of creating shelving storage for food and cupboard essentials.
