What kitchen trends should we be looking for in 2024!

Kitchen Trends 2024
1. Textured Tiles
One of the easiest ways to add some interest and personality to your kitchen is to use textured tiles for your backsplash, floor, or accent wall. Textured tiles can create a variety of effects, from glossy to matte, from ridged to embossed, from geometric to organic. Textured tiles can also work with any style, from minimalist to maximalist, from modern to vintage.
2. Pared-Back Hardware
Another trend that will give your kitchen a sleek and sophisticated look is to opt for pared-back hardware for your cabinets, drawers, and appliances. Instead of flashy or bulky knobs, handles, and sinks, go for recessed, integrated, or hidden options that blend in with the rest of the design. You can also add some subtle metallic accents, such as gold, copper, or brass, to outline the edges of your cabinetry or island, or to hang some pendant lights over your dining area.
3. Dramatic Islands
If you have enough space in your kitchen, a dramatic island can be a great way to make a statement and increase your functionality. A dramatic island can be defined by its size, shape, material, or color. For example, you can choose an oversized counter slab with a waterfall edge, a curved or angular island that breaks the monotony of straight lines, a stone or quartz island that showcases graphic veining and details, or a bold or bright color that stands out from the rest of the kitchen.
4. Fluted Details
One of the most eye-catching and elegant trends for 2024 is to incorporate fluted details into your kitchen design. Fluting is a technique that creates vertical grooves or ridges on a surface, adding texture and depth. You can use fluting to enhance your kitchen island, your cabinets, your countertops, or your furniture. Fluting can also suit different aesthetics, from midcentury to contemporary, depending on the pattern and the finish.
5. Warm Neutrals
While white and gray have been the dominant colors for kitchens in the past few years, 2024 will see a shift to warmer and softer neutrals, such as beige, cream, taupe, and brown. These colors can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your kitchen, as well as complement natural materials like wood, stone, and metal. You can also mix and match different shades of neutrals, or add some pops of color, such as green, blue, or yellow, to create some contrast and interest.

The Quooker Tap

Introducing Quooker, the tap that does it all
Quooker is a revolutionary kitchen tap that gives you instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling water at the touch of a button. It’s the perfect way to save time and energy in the kitchen, and it’s also a great way to improve your health and well-being.

How does it work?

Quooker consists of a kitchen tap on your worktop and a tank in your kitchen cupboard. The tank is filled with filtered water and heated to 100 degrees Celsius. When you turn on the tap, you can choose between boiling, chilled, or sparkling water.

Why choose Quooker?

There are many reasons to choose Quooker, including:

  • Convenience: Quooker gives you instant access to boiling, chilled, and sparkling water, so you can make a cup of tea, cook pasta, or fill a water bottle in seconds.

There are two different types of Quooker taps available:

  • 3-in-1 tap: This tap gives you access to boiling, chilled, and sparkling water.

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Design for your Kitchen

For many people, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Regardless of your culinary skills, it’s likely to be a room that you use every single day for cooking, eating, socialising, and perhaps even working or helping the kids with their homework. That’s why it is important to get the interior design of your kitchen right.

Here at William Cope, we work with you to turn your dream kitchen into a reality. To help us understand your vision a little better and ensure we create the perfect space for your needs, here are five factors to take into consideration when choosing your interior design.

 

1. How much space you have

One issue that has a big impact on what sort of design will best suit your kitchen is how much physical space you have. For example, if you have a long and narrow galley kitchen, then a large kitchen island is not going to be the most appropriate choice. Taking size into account from the very beginning ensures you won’t be disappointed by falling in love with a kitchen style you don’t have room for.

 

2. What you use the kitchen for

Another important step is to take some time and think about exactly what you use your kitchen for – or what you want to be able to use it for. This includes factors such as how much cooking you like to do, whether you also eat in the kitchen or prefer to use a separate dining room, and whether your kitchen doubles as a home office or hobby space. It’s also helpful to consider where the main thoroughfares are, and how child-friendly you need the kitchen to be. Knowing this helps us to design a space that truly ticks all of your boxes.

 

3. Theme

One of the enjoyable aspects of choosing a kitchen design is thinking about what sort of theme you would prefer. For instance, are you hoping for a sleek minimalist space, a modern industrial look, a homely countryside atmosphere, or a kitchen with a relaxed Mediterranean vibe? Consider what matches your personality and the rest of your home decor, and we’ll work to execute your vision.

 

4. Colour scheme

Even if you don’t want to go all out with a theme, colour is a key aspect of kitchen design. As a rough guide, small spaces tend to do better with light colour schemes, while larger kitchens that have a lot of natural light can afford to go darker. Whether you prefer bold reds, regal purples, or natural greens and blues, we can create a customised kitchen space you’ll love.

 

5. Storage solutions

Kitchens tend to require a lot of storage space for food and drink, cookware, tableware, and so on – especially if you enjoy cooking at home a lot. No matter how large your kitchen is, we can come up with innovative solutions to all your storage needs. Whether you want to maximise space with floor-to-ceiling cupboards, use glass-fronted cabinets to display beautiful glassware, or install open shelving for easy access, there’s a practical option to suit you.
