Trends in your kitchen, as with all trends, are heavily influenced by what is going on in the world. Here are three growing trends in kitchen design, influenced by current events!


As a result of the pandemic, kitchen designs are incorporating aspects that take health and hygiene into consideration. This includes touchless systems, visual clean lines, anti-bacterial surfaces, easy clean features and more!

Spending more time at home has lead to a focus on truly personalized spaces that reflect our own signature styles. Homeowners are layering bought, found and meaningful pieces to create stunning, unique vignettes and adding playful details that really showcase who they are through their design choices.

In recent years, we have become much more conscious of the impact our choices have on the world around us. Eco-friendly choices such as reusing, upcycling and water conservation in kitchen fittings are all affecting our kitchen design choices. Heritage styles and shapes, with modern updates, are a popular choice as homeowners look for ways to give new life to their homes without replacing everything in the process.
