We’ve never spent more time at home and that includes working even harder in our kitchens. So it’s important to make the hub of the house somewhere truly yours, whilst adapting to the new way of living. But, there’s good news! There are some incredible design ideas and trends for the most multifunctional room of the house in 2021. Whether open-plan living, temporary workspaces or maintaining its role as the engine room of your home, there’s plenty to be inspired by.


Multifunctional Taps

With a Quooker tap in your kitchen you always have instant 100°C boiling water alongside regular hot and cold. Add a Quooker CUBE and you will also have filtered chilled and sparkling water – all from the same tap! Not only do you get all of this, but their taps also save energy and money! A Quooker is the most energy-efficient hot water appliance for the kitchen, awarded the Energy label A. With a Quooker COMBI tank helping you look after the pennies!

Dramatic Darkness

Blacks and greys were always either slightly intimidating as a colour palette for the home or more of a statement for an individual wall. However, dark tones are taking over in kitchens to add a luxurious and inviting feel, especially when paired with wood or marble surfaces to add that extra homely touch.


Innovative Extractors

Kitchen ventilation is moving forward and adapting with our smarter way of living. No longer are we left with one type of extractor hood but rather a plethora to choose from that provide a multitude of benefits. From NEFF’s latest range featuring downdraft, ceiling, wall-mounted or worktop fitting, there’s innovation galore to adapt to your kitchen and way of cooking.

“Broken-Plan Living”

According to Homes & Gardens, the trend set to dominate and define the next decade in kitchen designs is the coined “broken-plan”. Utilising kitchen islands, screens and freestanding furniture to maintain the feel of an open plan kitchen that offers spaces and nooks for specific needs such as home-working, entertaining and more.


Statement Splashbacks

One of our recent projects featured a copper-effect glass splashback and under-lighting to accentuate the statement of the kitchen, adapting to any mood. Schüller offer a fantastic range that allows your personality to shine through in your kitchen design. From pops of colour to striking tiles or interesting textures – there is always a chance to make your stamp on your home!
