'Kitchen design in 2018 is all about timber veneers, colour contrast, texture, metallics and the ongoing industrial look,' says bespoke furniture manufacturers Schmidt.
'Personalisation will be big in 2018,' adds Sinead Trainor, kitchen category manager at LochAnna Kitchens. 'The tail end of 2017 has seen the emergence of more bold colours and textures in kitchen doors and this will follow into the new year. The mix of striking solid colours and woodgrains will continue to prove popular, whilst more industrial finishes like concrete will sit alongside these to really create interest in the kitchen. Consumers are increasingly looking for more variety and being braver in their style and colour choices.'
