The KBB industry constantly moves at such a brisk pace. If you’re not keeping a close eye on the movements within the market, you are going to get left behind. As a kitchen manufacturer, we love to see the variety of new styles and design ideas coming through. For our dealers, it means they can offer the latest on-trend kitchens that radiate quality and personality. Check out our forecast of 2019 Kitchen Trends.
While mid-deep blues are still going strong, the blue kitchen trend seems to have peaked this year. As we move through 2019, we will begin to see colours like deep reds make an appearance in the kitchen. And this trend signals a move toward more natural hues and earthy tones, such as burgundy. They are offset with the moodier shades of grey, like Onyx or Pebble, adding a touch of elegance and character. This helps bring the kitchen comfort and warmth, allowing it to feel more like a living space to relax in.
The Vintage-Industrial kitchen continues to grow and is bringing out some amazing looks defined by a mix of incredible textures and materials. With all shades of concrete and stone helping to create atmospheric, dark settings or brighter, open spaces, this trend satisfies a diverse range of tastes. Moreover, reclaimed wood with metal finish accents such as brass, bronze or copper help bring a vintage feel to the kitchen. Especially when harmonized with a pastel hue pop or bold decorative flooring.
The UK has seen the demand for J-Profile handleless doors flourish. Reflecting this market trend, and listening to our network of dealers, BA recently introduced Jayline. This new range of handleless doors are the only 19mm MDF post formed ‘J’ Pull doors manufactured in the UK.
David Caulfield, Sales and Marketing Director commented, “We’re excited to have recently introduced this new door into BA’s portfolio, a fresh take on our handleless offer. This new door looks stunning in high gloss white and is set to be a real winner in the BA range.”
Even as handleless doors continue to grow in popularity, the Shaker style proves to be persistent against door design trends. This has, not unexpectantly, lead to Shaker style doors in handleless design, giving consumers more choice in blending traditional design with contemporary.
Speaking of fusing trends, we are seeing a continued aspiration to mix not only colours but textures and finishes. Consumers have been moving away from monochrome kitchens for some time, but things are becoming a little more daring. Whether it be shades of pink and blue gently paired together or a bold and bright section of units contrasted with more neutral tones elsewhere, consumers are now more adventurous. Similarly combining and contrasting matt finishes with gloss or classic wood textures with metal, showcases the power of individuality, serving to create truly distinctive kitchens, that reflect their personality. It’s great to see consumers who are no longer afraid to play around with their kitchens design.
The year ahead brings BA opportunity. Following the recent unveilings of Jayline and Complete Plus, we will continue our own kitchen trend in 2019. For now, we can only provide little hints, but we will be broadening our offering, launching more high-quality products and delivering better customer experiences throughout next year. We are very excited about our plans on the horizon, and rest assured your anticipation will be highly rewarded.
