Lanhill Construction have everything you could want from a builder in the Maidstone area. Based a short drive away in Boughton Monchelsea, within our team of construction specialists we have a plumber, tiler and electrician, making us the complete package for seamless luxury kitchen creation and fitting. Also specialising in house extension, we are the renovation experts for high-end Maidstone clients, with over 30 years of combined experience in our team. On this page, we look at some of the hottest luxury kitchen design trends in 2016, and how we can help to implement some of these ideas into your home.
Muted Colour Palettes
It will come as welcome news for Maidstone residents who were already thinking about experimenting with a new colour scheme that the trends for luxury kitchen colours are changing. Though white motifs will still prove exceptionally popular (some things never change), expect to see a lot of fixtures, cabinets and backsplashes manufactured in less saturated tones. Interior design experts say that charcoal, grey and pastel colours like light blue are an alternate to standard white, and bold primary colours are on their way out. Not only are we all house extension experts, a builder on Lanhill’s staff is also an expert tiler, so mosaic-style splashbacks in a variety of soothing shades could be yours.
If you’ve always wanted a hi-tech luxury kitchen, you’re in luck. There’s never been a better time for technological innovations about the house, as the “Smart Home” of tomorrow becomes increasingly affordable for the average consumer. Many Maidstone residents have set aside space for smart devices in their luxury kitchen, hiding charging stations that store phones, tablets and similar devices. This ensures they’re always at hand (important for modern sorts), but without leads interrupting the design aesthetic. On-the-go families in the area have undergone renovation of their appliances, turning to smart kitchenware like steam ovens, app-controlled coffee machines and wine coolers.
An 80s Reboot
Rick Astley has topped the album charts, while Netflix series “Stranger Things” is taking the world by storm. The 80s revival is in full flow in 2016, and this can be reflected in your luxury kitchen design. Mirrored backsplashes, brass as far as the eye can see and glossy surfaces are just some of the 80s-influenced renovation ideas Maidstone residents are using, adding modern elegance and refinement to that decade’s trends of brash and bold design.
Integrated Kitchen-Living Spaces
The kitchen may be the heart of your home, but it can sometimes be a little disconnected from living and dining spaces. Maidstone homeowners who want their cooking space to feel more accommodating are combining their luxury kitchen with a living area through house extension, so that the kitchen converges with their home’s primary living space. A builder from Lanhill’s team are able to merge kitchens and living rooms by including hidden and integrated appliance, utilising the plumber and electrician amongst our team.
