Kitchen Design Trends 2014:
The LWK Kitchens team returned from our manufacturer in Germany last week where we were lucky enough to preview some of the stunning new kitchen collections for next year including an assortment of new colours, styles, and visions for future kitchen design! Over the next 5 days we will be sharing exciting kitchen design trends that are set to be big in 2014….
Part 1: Textured Kitchen Door Fronts
Matt kitchen finishes will continue into 2014 as a popular kitchen trend but new for the matt satin lacquer kitchen door is an option for textured door and drawer fronts.
Patterned kitchen door fronts for White Kitchens
A floral textured design is new, stylish, and also continues across the width and height of a door front. Pattern arrangements are easier for the eye to process so make a good choice for all-white, minimalist kitchens with white décor.
Texture is effective in drawing focus and breaking up the continuity of the hue. An example of where this works well is with very stark white colours such as the Brilliant White or Polar White kitchen door front.
Textured kitchen design features and coloured door fronts
With the knowledge of how the eye registers colour and texture it follows that structured patterns are perfect for feature pieces of a kitchen design. Intended to draw the eye, ingrained patterns are an impressive choice for kitchen islands, a bank of striking units or also contemporary living room furniture.
Alternatively, rather than standing out amongst an all white décor structured patterns are available in a range of door colours that can be interspersed. Stark contrasts such as a white Grand Canyon door front against dark grey or blue tones work well, as do subtle blends of similar shades, creating a harmonious colour amalgamation.
Roll on 2014…
Whichever your preference it is guaranteed that textured surface doors will be a popular kitchen design trend in 2014. With their versatile nature and attractive quality we very much look forward to seeing how they are incorporated within different kitchen designs, and translate into stylish installations for the home.
