Minimal style is popular for kitchens, says expert

Thursday, 16 August 2012

A minimal style – which leaves out handles - is popular for kitchens it seems.

That's according to ANLO Kitchen' Graham Robinson, who has suggested that this look allows smaller kitchens to be opened-up.

"The popularity of the minimal, handleless look and open plan kitchens extending to living areas has further helped open up a small kitchen and this trend is gathering pace, with technology satisfying the need for ever sharper details," the showroom manager explained.

But home insurance holders are less likely to be opting for something chunky-looking when it comes to their kitchens, it seems.

Mr Robinson said that what he called a "chunky and solid look" was decreasing when it came to the popularity stakes.

However, he added, people are still able to make "a strong design statement" by incorporating contrasts.

Neil Lerner Kitchen Design's Neil Lerner recently called colour: "one of the biggest developments now in kitchen trends".
