3 Decades of Kitchens…

Ream has designed and fitted thousands of kitchens all across Kent and London, in places such as Eltham, Chislehurst, Sevenoaks, West Malling, Gillingham, Maidstone, Rainham, Hempstead and surrounding towns for over 37 years.

Boy have we seen some ‘out there’ designs over the years…

We were taking a look at some of the old kitchen trends over the past few decades and it appears we have done a 360.

With the ultra modern gloss finish at the top of the wish list in 2013/14 we are starting to see a lot more demand for the ‘Traditional Kitchen’ and wood look finishes but also we have seen some great examples with a mixture of both.

I’ve personally seen some great designs recently – white gloss carcase and trim with a wood look door,  which I must say isn’t something that I would of thought of a few years back but seeing it in the flesh, it gives an absolutely beautiful finish.

So are people getting more creative and daring with design like they did in the 1900’s??

It would appear so…modern kitchens, traditional accessories, traditional kitchens, modern accessories. It’s safe to say that kitchen designs have really moved on from the standard neutral colour high gloss finish.

So how do the modern day kitchen designs compare to the 1900’s styles?

We are being rather more creative with colour in 2015, not so much with retro patterns like in the 1900’s but still bringing in bright, bold block colours in to the kitchen to compliment design. These block bold colours like Orange, Green, Purple etc are making an appearance in tiles, splash backs and even as a top row cupboard front alternative to really set off design.

Even the accessories are becoming a little more retro…

With Orla Kiely launching her kitchen accessories range a few years back, it’s becoming more and more fitting to have some seriously bold and beautiful colours and patterns appear in both traditional or modern design and lets face it…they look pretty eye catching.
