Terrazzo tiles

The terrazzo trend is still going strong. With a Pinterest search increase of 20 per cent, it’s time to refresh your kitchen worktops and surfaces with the playful design.

‘In springtime, customers tend to reach for brighter and colourful décor options, with this Terrazzo trend being proof of that,’ says Tom Drake, interior design specialist at Tap Warehouse.

‘However, this chic look is not just for spring, it’s certainly a trend that’s here to stay.’


Green kitchen

From soft sage to dark mossy hues, green kitchens are the best way to bring the outside in. With a 19 per cent increase on Pinterest, they certainly aren’t going anywhere.

‘Green is a colour that stands the test of time as it can breathe life into most kitchen designs,’ Tap Warehouse say. ‘Despite it being such a bold colour, there’s many ways to incorporate green in the kitchen. Why not create a contrasting look with green cabinets and pink walls or accessories?’

Touches of pink

‘Many of us are seeking a bit of joy in our lives, so it’s little surprise that Brits are turning their kitchens a cheerful pink,’ Tom adds.

‘However, if you didn’t want to go all out with such a statement colour, you could opt for a pink kitchen island. You’ll still have the benefits of a striking, fun, colour in your kitchen but with a more balanced look.’


Splashes of teal

Teal kitchens are gaining popularity among homeowners and interior designers alike, with Tap Warehouse discovering a 17 per cent increase in Pinterest search traffic.

Not sure how to incorporate the trending hue? Tom adds: ‘To really accentuate the calming effect of teal, why not add lots of luscious plants to your kitchen? Indoor plants have been shown to improve mood, plus the beautiful greenery teams amazingly against teal: creating a tonal look.’


Black and white

Go modern with a monochrome kitchen — a classic colour palette that will always pay off. With a 16 per cent increase, it seems more people are looking for a beautiful kitchen design that will never go out of style.


Go red

From burgundy to scarlet and rust, red is the very latest in the world of kitchen design. Looking to go bold? Why not add a splash of colour to the busiest room in the home. There’s no better way to create that wow-factor.


Orange kitchen

Go bold in 2021 with scene-stealing hues of orange. Whether you’re daring enough to opt for zesty orange cabinets or want to incorporate the shade through accessories, it’s one of the hottest hues for this year.


Light grey

A popular choice for both contemporary and modern kitchens, Nordic-inspired light grey is incredibly sophisticated. An alternative to white, grey is the way to go in 2021…


Navy blue kitchen

There’s something wonderful about a navy blue kitchen. If you’re planning a refurb in 2021, stay right on-trend with stately navy hues. Some of the ways to do so include installing (or painting) your cabinets dark blue or opting for blue walls — both striking options for any kitchen space.
