April 20, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Designing the kitchen is an important task because every family knows how the room makes a house a home; and it is an integral living space that is used the most often. Choosing your dream kitchen cooker to complete the furnishings is ideal but it needs to fit in well with the whole design of the room.

Make sure that your kitchen decor is bang on trend this year by installing warm shades and colours. Industry experts have offered some insider tips on what the top kitchen trends are for 2012 and they include cosy neutrals such as Truffle, Pumice and Café Latte.

Graham Jones, the Sales and Marketing Director at Mereway Kitchens, has advised all consumers to use texture and colour as the basis for inspiration and these warm palettes can be enhanced with solid wood grains and splashes of colour.

This is further reiterated by Ruth Bell, Editor at Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine, who recommends all Britons to stay clear of harsh white and opt for creamier hues like alabaster and chalk.

The difficult economy is also responsible for the 2012 trends. Kitchen designs have become more nostalgic and traditional as opposed to hard, angular and futuristic to remind society to look back and reminisce on the better times. Britannia Living has a vast array of range cookers that are traditional as well as modern to choose from.

Another popular craze this year is the increasing use of curves in the kitchen. More fluid designs, curved cabinetry and island units are featured in modern living spaces and due to its extensive price range, it is affordable for all regardless of the budget.

But overall, the trend is that the décor is designed for practical purpose and that they are fit to relax and eat in; so a foretold style is vast storage space, open shelving and glazed units.

Ensure that you follow these top tips from Britannialiving.co.uk to guarantee that the furnishings are bang on trend this year.
