A perfect kitchen is the dream of many, and if you have a show home and you could present your viewers (and buyers!) with the perfect kitchen, we believe you could seal the deal for most of them. Most home buyers would like to see a fully functional kitchen.
In this kitchen, they could also relax and spend time with their family and friends, and more importantly, a kitchen which they could call their own and which they could fill with whatever gadgets are necessary to make cooking and preparing meals a much more pleasant and easier experience.
Some kitchen trends today are worth looking into, and if you could incorporate a few in your show home, your show home would undoubtedly get a lot more attention. Here’s a list of the top trends in kitchen design and aesthetics – perfect for a show home in 2022.
Say It With Seating
The kitchen has never really been a place where one could sit – until now. More interior designers are seeing the importance of stools in the kitchen. If you want to hit the mark, go for good kitchen perching, as suggested by showhome interior design specialists from Block.
You could, for instance, go for a single stool or two stools, or even a breakfast bar – perfect for that quick cup of tea or coffee or to check an email or two whilst having breakfast or a snack. Whilst most people don’t require a full table, seats would work well for a quick break.
Glazed Tiles Give Your Kitchen A Subtle Yet Stylish Appeal
Kitchen backsplashes have been here for years – there’s nothing new about them. But now, more than ever, there is a shift from a matte finish to a gloss finish – and it is easier to clean, which is a big plus for homeowners.
For instance, you can go for rich hues such as green tiles in a glossy finish and pair them with marble and rustic wood for a nice contrast in colors and textures. If you want your show home kitchen to look more subtle and muted, on the other hand, you could opt for white tiling that’s glazed – white is always a popular color.
Use Antique, Vintage Furniture
Now here’s the thing – when we talk about show homes, everything is spic and span – and everything is brand new, from the tables and chairs to the backsplash and tiles.
But if you don’t want your show home to look like a show home, it has to look ‘lived in’ and cozy – and nothing looks as cozy as antique or vintage furniture. Mind you, it doesn’t have to be a hundred years old – but if you can choose vintage-inspired furniture, then so much the better.
Nothing will make the home less of a show home and more of a real home than an antique bench in a corner or a beautifully restored farm table. These furniture pieces are timeless and make a home look lived in, and if you want the real deal, there are plenty of pieces to be had at antique bazaars and fairs.
Also, you can give the kitchen a more vintage appeal by adding period lighting, large open shelves, a larder cupboard, and a beautiful sink with brass taps.
