Spring is the perfect time to renew your kitchen.

Brighter mornings create a fresher, airier feel within your home, but on the downside, they also shine a spotlight on areas that have seen better days and are looking a little worse for wear. So why not take this opportunity to finally get around to the renovation projects you’ve been putting aside during the cold winter months?

If you’re thinking of upgrading your kitchen, here are four of the most hotly anticipated interior design trends set to take over Pinterest wish-lists and home décor magazines this spring.

Let the outside in

With flowers beginning to bloom outside, there’s every reason to bring nature’s beauty into the kitchen too. Consider opting for French doors, floor-to-ceiling windows or skylights over your kitchen to let the sunshine in and make the room feel more spacious. Finish the look with rich green pot plants placed on an open-front shelf or fresh flowers to brighten up the kitchen countertop.

Geometric chic

Geometric tiles are the latest way to put a subtle modern twist on a classic kitchen design, pairing perfectly with shaker style cabinets in soothing dove grey and rustic wood countertops. Experiment with tessellating shapes beyond the usual squares and rectangles, like hexagonal or diamond tiles, or use tiles in several different shades to create your own unique pattern.

Beautiful blues

Leading homeware bloggers and designers are quickly waking up to the power of blue kitchens to transform a room and create a kitchen with true personality. Choose paler shades for a low key approach, perhaps contrasted against white cabinets for a fresh approach, or create maximum impact with a high-impact midnight blue kitchen.

Totally terrazzo

Terrazzo worktops are making a major comeback in 2018, as homeowners fall in love with terrazzo’s one-of-a-kind speckled texture. Since this material is made by binding small pieces of natural stone together within a poured base, terrazzo offers an endless array of colour combinations to suit any kitchen, and gives a smooth, hard-wearing worktop finish.
