Kitchen Cabinetry Trends

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 10th October 2016


For a modern take on the traditional Shaker style, British Standard offers an off-the-shelf cupboard range of simple, honest, affordable cabinets. In this scheme, a crisp contrast of white marble worktops and navy blue cabinets creates a fresh, modern feel. The beauty of this brand is that you can plan your own design and layout then simply order the fully assembled furniture online. It comes in a Broken White undercoat, which you can then customise in a colour of your choice. Cupboards start at £400 with an average sized kitchen costing around £7,000 (

You can add a lot of interest to a kitchen with the material used for cabinet doors. This Stone Veneer is exclusive to Neil Lerner Kitchen Design and is made from 100% genuine volcanic stone. It comes in two designer colourways – Gold Green or Black Star, as shown. Natural stone veneer is produced by taking thin layers of natural stone that have been split from the surface of a large slab. These are then fused onto a flexible fibreglass backing then veneered to create a truly unique, eye-catching finish. Prices start at £40,000 (

The Peckham Rye Classic English design by deVOL is painted in a gorgeous deep green, a colour that we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the interiors and design world. "The Peckham Rye kitchen is a bold statement in colour and style,” says creative director Helen Parker, “and its shows us all how choosing dark colours really does make a kitchen atmospheric and impressively different. Dark green is a bit more daring than a dark grey or blue and not for everyone, which makes it feel a bit more edgy.” Prices start from £25,000 (

Metallics are still popular in interiors and this trend is here to stay. We love this Oxydo kitchen by Intuo, which features an island unit with metal fronts that are treated with a specialist metallic lacquer that oxidises upon contact. It’s then fixed with a clear lacquer topcoat to create a uniquely finished antique copper effect. Available from Searle & Taylor, prices for a complete kitchen start from £40,000 (

Lovers of the Scandi interiors trend are set to be wowed by Pronorm’s Nordic Light woodgrain cabinetry. It’s pictured here in a Pronorm Y-Line handleless kitchen with Super White high gloss to create a fresh, airy kitchen that is refined yet low key, typical of the relaxed Scandinavian style. Nordic Light features a subtle planked detail and random knots for a hint of rustic charm and its matt finish enhances the tactile aesthetic. The use of modern materials and drawer interiors also injects a contemporary edge, without being too minimal. Expect to pay from £20,000 (

Illustrating the trend for concealed kitchens, which are popular in open-plan living, this Modulnova design from DesignSpace London keeps all the functional elements of the kitchen hidden from view. “This allows you to create a much more coherent look within an open plan kitchen/living room,” explains design director Keith Atkins. “Fold-away pocket doors allow total access to the working kitchen, which can comprise anything from a simple hob, fridge and sink set-up to a complete range of integrated appliances.”
Modulnova’s Blade Kitchen in Fenix Bianco Kos solid colour laminate with island units in Rovere Puro Raw Oak veneer, from £25,000 (
