kitchen splashbacks trends

Fancy sprucing up your kitchen for the New Year? Here is a list of the kitchen style trends set to take 2018 by storm including eye-catching glass kitchen splashbacks.

Spruce your worktops

Quartz is a stunning material for kitchen worktops. As well as looking extremely attractive with perfect shine, it requires very little upkeep. With timeless appeal, it will give your kitchen an edge over others. It’s non-porous so you don’t need to worry about it harbouring any bacteria. It’s overtaken granite in the worktop popularity stakes and adds a flair to your home.

Keep clutter to a minimum

Although this trend has been around for a while, keeping your kitchen as minimal as possible is still on the up. Hiding appliances and ingredients away keeps your kitchen tidy as well as giving the illusion of more space. Use unused space as a hidden wine rack and hang utensils and towels on the inside of your cupboard doors.

Give yourself more space

Incorporating open-plan anywhere in your home will add space as well as light. Having an open-plan kitchen and dining room makes dinner times smoother as well as giving you plenty of space for entertaining.

Open up your kitchen

Why don’t you open up your kitchen to some outdoor living? With a set of bifold doors, you can use your outside patio or decking as your dining area when the weather’s right. Bifold doors enjoy slimmer frames and larger glazed areas than other patio doors. This allows them to fill your home with light and enjoy your beautiful views. This is perfect for the kitchen as it’s a room that does it’s best with lots of light. Gazing out at your well-kept garden or glorious countryside could be the perfect culinary inspiration.

New colours for a New Year

Mixing up the colours in your kitchen is the perfect way to make it feel brand new. To stay on trend, why not incorporate Pantone’s colour of the Year Ultra Violet? This bright and bold colour could be used on a feature wall or in kitchen accessories and crockery for a subtle burst of colour. A colourful kitchen could also provide you with inspiration to add more colour and spice to your meals. Two-toned kitchens will become popular next year so why not combine purple with sophisticated grey?

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
