With every new season comes a catalogue of new and exciting trends. And although many of you are still basking in the summer sunshine, we’ve already been taking a look at the kitchen design trends that are set to take next season by storm.

There’s no denying that your kitchen is one of the busiest spaces in your home. It’s not only a space where families come together to cook, indulge and socialise, it’s now a space where most family and friends do the majority of their entertaining.

With this in mind, when it comes to transforming your kitchen space, it’s important that it is inviting, functional and equipped with everything you need to socialise, cook and of course, enjoy your favourite food.

So if you’re thinking about renovating your kitchen in the next few months – you might want to tune in… We’ve created a list of the kitchen trends that are set to be huge in A/W16.

Create an inviting living space in your kitchen

Today’s kitchens are not only a space where families cook together, they are now a space where families socialise, entertain and relax.

As a result, next season key kitchen design trends focus on creating a comfortable living space in your kitchen, where you can relax on big comfy sofas, watch your favourite TV show, or maybe curl up in the corner and read a good book on a statement armchair.

This will allow you to create a more streamlined kitchen that converges with your home’s primary living space.

Create a smart kitchen space

Thanks to advances in technology, there are now more innovative kitchen gadgets than ever before, allowing you to give your kitchen a hi-tech makeover that is sure to get the neighbours talking.

And next season is all about integrating a number of high performance gadgets and accessories into your kitchen. From state-of-the art entertainment systems, integrated wine coolers and built-in coffee machines through to hidden charging systems for your tablets and phones and Apps that can control your kitchens core functions such as your heating and lights, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to kitting out your kitchen with the latest gadgets.

Mix and match different textures

This season is all about mixing and matching different textures to create spaces that are interesting, comfortable and inviting.

Clashing strong contrasting designs is also a great way to inject character and personality into your kitchen, especially when it comes to creating attracting focal points. Using a variety of different materials and finishes within one space is set to be huge next season, so don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

Re-visit the 80s

It’s true what they say – trends from decades been and gone will constantly re-surface.

And next season is all about embracing a number of kitchen trends that we seen in the 80s. So think mirrored backsplashes, plenty of brass accessories and of course, those high gloss finishes that will always make an impact.
