Kitchen Ideas for a Modern Space

Spending so much time at home has had us thinking about the little changes we want to make. We’ve found a few new kitchen trends that we are loving at the moment. Take a look to see if any of these ideas can help you freshen up your kitchen!

New Kitchen Trends

1. Brass Hardware

This timeless home feature has moved back to the spotlight in recent years. This look changes the traditional metal look of kitchen features to create a stylish statement in your home. So, although this is a pricier material, choosing brass for your tapware, sinks or lighting will last the test of time in terms of wear and look. 

2. Natural Colours and Wooden Features

The priority for this year is to create a fresh and inviting space. Using wooden features such as furniture or investing in some statement house plants can really refresh the kitchen. To make the most of the green features, you could buy a small herb plant that you could use to add flavour to your meals, such as a mint or basil plant.

3. Comfortable Outdoor Dining Furniture

Hard and unloved garden furniture is set to be a thing of the past, with many people planning for garden get-togethers when restrictions allow. Transform your garden into another living space in your home and make the most of every inch of your property. Bring your guests outside to garden furniture that is as comfortable, if not more, comfortable than the couch. 

4. Open Plan Spaces 

Open your house up to create a warmer environment in your home. Once we can have visitors in doors again, you will be delighted to have a kitchen-living area that allows you to be the best host possible. If you’re looking to improve your kitchen, check out our loan calculator here or speak to a member of staff at our Member Services Centre (MSC) today at (01) 851 3400.
