The New Kitchen Trends – Summer 2014

2014 is the year to change your kitchen and give it a new lease of life. Kitchen styles and tastes are forever changing and it is sometimes hard to keep up with the latest trends and design ideas. When choosing to redecorate, it is important to choose styles that will last and not be dated over a short period of time. If on a budget, or lacking that creative spark, it is difficult to know what to do and what to choose, so here at Tile Mart we have put together a little guide to the on-trend touches and décor styles to give you a little inspiration, allowing you to give your kitchen a little sparkle and love.

White is the new black – White is clean, easy to accessorise and, if used in the right way, can be the most statement making colour of all. There are lots of ways to use white in order to brighten up or give a room a new lease of life, and kitchens are no different. White tiles, white counters, white floors and white walls are a beautiful way to reinvent and modernise a kitchen suite, especially if your old kitchen décor was a dark or mix-mash colour palette. There are plenty of white tiles to choose from and many ways to stylise them. Whether decorating a whole kitchen or just adding a touch of white as an accent colour, the Hampton kitchen tiles are a wonderful choice for every home; large and rectangular in shape, they give modernity and add a touch of contemporary class to any wall.

White Kitchen

Something old, something new – Shabby chic is a reoccurring style that doesn’t seem to be dying out anytime soon; a beautifully modern yet traditional and old-feeling décor choice that has tons of character and charm. Shabby chic is an easy-to-achieve trend and suits anyone that may be on a budget or who enjoys a bit of DIY. This style focuses heavily around the look and feel of a lived in and loved home, with hints of pastel and bright colours that add a touch of delicacy in contrast to the rough and worn kitchen furniture. Accent colours are perfect for this style, so whether you are keeping your old kitchen suite and just adding new tiles, go for a contrast colour or pattern to liven the place up and add a bit of ‘colour clashing’. Colour clashing is an extremely popular and on-trend style of the present day and can work for any space and home. Want to change your kitchen furniture but can’t afford to? Why not sand down your old furniture and give it a new lick of paint in order to achieve the ‘distressed’ shabby-chic look? Your kitchen will look gorgeously fresh and bright in no time. The Agatha tile range is a perfect choice for this décor choice and style; colourful and quaint with stylised sophistication.
