There are few rooms in the home that need to work as hard as the kitchen, but being functional doesn’t have to equate to being plain. Cabinets can make or break the look and feel of a kitchen, so updating them may be exactly what you need to turn this space around.
The experts at Niemann SA, suppliers of quality laminated boards and accessories, have shared their kitchen cabinet trend tips for the months to come.
muted and contrasting colour palettes
Toying with the idea of experimenting with your colour scheme? The good news is that there’s a movement towards different kitchen colours. While white shades are still on trend, cabinets and backsplashes can now be transformed using less saturated tones. Contrast titanium, basalt and dark greys with neutral pastels, like pale shades of oxygen blue, light grey and tinted or off-whites.
Another kitchen trend to watch out for in the coming months is lighter wood tones, like walnut, white-washed wood melamine and oak tones. Niemann SA’s high-quality laminate board range includes Acrylux high-gloss, Polygloss, Polymatt and textured/textile melamine finishes to create your perfect on-trend contrast look.
Think big when it comes to the contrast trend and create juxtapositions with two-toned cabinets. For a clean and timeless feel, keep all upper cabinets white or a neutral colour and use the lower cabinets to explore various wood textures and deeper shades.
Melamine is an obvious choice for a room that’s as hard-working as a kitchen, but be sure to have it installed properly or you may face problems down the line. Opt for the best quality materials with high visual impact and durability.
Niemann SA recommends speaking to the professionals for the broadest range of application solutions. Remember that something as simple as using top-of-the-range kitchen panels adds value to your investment. Look for guarantees on the lifetime of the board for peace of mind.
