4 Recommended Kitchen Designs from Top Interior Designers in Lahore

Kitchen Design

This year kitchen trends are leaning towards more personalized and individual styles, rather than the more traditional and formal designs. From quartz counter tops paired with metal and wooden accents, to kitchen islands in monochromatic hues and shaker inspired designs, this year trends are shifting towards modern yet unique and customized styles.

Today we are going to share some of the latest kitchen designs and trends, suggested by the top interior designers in Lahore.

Monochromatic Hues

For a more contemporary and sleek design, consider shifting towards a monochromatic color scheme. Turning towards varying shades of gray and white undertones, while pairing them with bold and vibrant accents can help create a warm and rich appeal. When paired with sleek counter tops and minimalistic designs, dark wooden or tiled floors can help add a modern and contemporary vibe to your kitchen. Most interior designers recommend the use of white backsplashes and white Corian countertops, for a minimal and sleek design.

Mixing Metals

While you might not be inclined towards painting your kitchen in one color, consider the addition of metal accents, for a more personalized touch. As stainless steel no longer has the expensive and exclusive appeal which it once had, most people prefer the use of copper and brass accents, as they give a more warm and homely touch to the interior. The use of metal can help add character and depth to your kitchen, as mixing metals can add visual interest. Copper accents and accessories are often used to add contrast when paired with black or dark interiors.

Replacing Granite with Quartz

Most interior designers and construction companies recommend the use of quartz in kitchens. Although the two materials nearly give the same look and finish, quartz is preferred as it is durable and resists scratches, burns and chips. Quartz, unlike granite, does not have to be sealed annually to prevent stains, while its subtle color gradation lends itself well to sleek and contemporary designs.

Sleek Countertops and Handless Units

This year interior designers are moving away from decorative and glazed styles, and are instead turning towards modern and sleek designs. Contemporary countertops while maintaining the impression of non-cluttered and clean spaces, are slimmer and thinner in their designs. Pairing these countertops with solid gray or white accents, can help add a compelling, and refined touch to your interior.

One of the more highly recommended kitchen trends includes the addition of sleek, handless units in gray or earthy tones. With a streamlined and uncluttered look, these units are excellent for adding a simple, yet modern finish to your kitchen.

We hope that you enjoyed these design trends and were inspired by these kitchen styles. For more design trends and household tips, stay connected to our blog.
