The Live In Kitchen
Over the last 18 months, we have spent more time at home than ever before. And as a result, it’s changed how we live andhow we’re styling our homes. The kitchen has always been the hub of the home, but these days it’s working harder than ever, serving not only as a room for cooking, but also a WFH space and a place to entertain. The kitchen is benefitting from soft furnishings, colour and pattern as homeowners introduce a sense of personality into the space. Open shelving, art work, luxe soft furnishings and ambient lighting is a great way to achieve the Live In Kitchen aesthetic. Tying together the kitchen with the rest of the home through the use of similar textures, patterns and colours will ensure that the space feels seamlessly connected.
Product Manager for Worktops, Bushboard UK, Andrea Freeman comments, “A live in kitchen should connect with the rest of the home. If you love dark wood furnishings and this is something you use throughout the rest ofthe home, why not incorporate this into the kitchen with a statement walnut splashback to create an on-trend panelled effect. Pattern can also help to achievea homely feel to an open plan space and this is something we often don’t see inthe kitchen. Treat Alloy splashbacks as you would a wallpaper and benefit from an uninterrupted design that will ensure a sense of cohesion with yourfurniture and accessories in the rest of the room. Open shelving in the kitchen is another way to add colour and personality for a live in kitchen, so why not style up your shelf with colourful cookbooks, pieces of art and your favourite crockery and glassware.”
