2012 is certainly the year for colour, as our Trend-O-Meter shows with the following top trends. So what’s hot for 2012? Here’s Magnet’s run down on what’s in fashion…
Aubergine and Cream
Think deep aubergine and rich plummy tones. This year is all about making a statement, mixing warm earthy tones with sparks of colour. Cream is a soft alternative to white so team with chunky wooden surfaces for maximum impact.
Flashes of neon and zingy glass splashbacks or shockingly bright retro appliances will really bring a Miami coast feel to your kitchen.
Modernise a traditional look with a sleek, glass work surface, the ultimate in kitchen sophistication for 2012. A bright flash of colour against country style units adds personality and a dash of glamour. Magnet has a range of glass surfaces in over 50 colours.
Curves are an excellent way to make a bold statement in a fitted kitchen, they create a truly contemporary feel with impact. Emphasise the look by introducing curves in to accessories such as extractor fans or lighting fixtures as seen in Magnet’s Crème Lineaire range.
This work surface is set to be big news for 2012. It complements quirky kitchen shapes perfectly. Corian is seamless and easily adapted to suit unusual designs and on-trend spaces. Super versatile worktops can be wrapped from the surface to sides of cabinets of moulded into splash backs or sinks for a streamlined look.
Mixing it up is predicted to be high on the ‘Trend-O-Meter’ for the coming year, pair the old with the new to create an inspirational design with impact. Try retro, textured frontals alongside shiny gloss or bright, contemporary glass teamed with a traditional Belfast sink.
Practical gadgets will be more popular than ever – from pop-up TVs through to in-built coffee machines and trendy wine coolers. These sleek gizmos are fast becoming a hot trend as they create a multi-functional living space to really position the kitchen at the heart of the home.
