The desire for industrial styling within kitchen design boomed into popularity during 2019. Black and metallic accessories were highly sought after. Manufacturers continue to offer sinks and taps in a whole array of metallic shades as kitchens featuring an industrial theme will continue to be hugely popular this year too.
Sustainability is also a key issue for people planning a kitchen refurbishment. Hot taps and filter water taps will continue to be highly desirable as plastic waste reduction continues to be a key environmental topic. The demand for natural materials is expected to rise significantly with more homes opting for environmentally friendly, recyclable options in their kitchen, such as stone and wooden work surfaces.
With these key design elements in mind we have put together our top home and kitchen product picks for this year. These ‘must have’ items are ideal for new kitchens or perfect additions if you’re planning a re-vamp of your existing kitchen.
Aarke Carbonator II.
Introducing the Aarke Carbonator II. Not only does the Aarke sparkling water maker look stylish but it is built from quality components too! The Aarke Carbonator II is the world’s first sparkling water maker with a stainless steel enclosure.
If you love a little fizz in your water then this fabulous product would make a fantastic addition in your kitchen. It will save you lugging heavy bottles of sparkling water home from the supermarket and reduce plastic waste at the same time! Complete with its own re-useable bottle, you can enjoy freshly prepared sparkling water on the go.
It can be used with AGA, Sodastream, Linde, Sodabär, SodaMagic, Vikingsoda and many other standard cylinders, 400-425g / 60l made for sparkling water makers. It is available in a variety of colours including copper, white, brass, black and stainless steel.
Abode Hex Tap Range.
Abode launched a new tap range last year; The Abode Hex. This wonderful collection of kitchen taps ooze industrial style and we have no doubt these will be flying off the shelves this year.
Consumers are opting for darker tone units in their kitchen. Dark, concrete palettes and navy tones are popular colour choices for kitchen furniture and 2020 we expect to see more pastel shades being used in kitchen design. Metallic accessories will compliment both darker and pastel shades perfectly and the Hex is no exception!
Quality and style come hand in hand with the Abode Hex Tap Collection. Subtle yet eye catching, the Abode Hex is totally on trend! It is the fine detail of the Hex collection that really sets them apart from anything else on the market. Unique details such as the industrial styled handles and hexagonal features on the spout co-ordinate beautifully with latest kitchen trends.
You’ll discover brushed brass, brushed nickel or black with styles to suit everyone. Models include a single lever mixer, single lever pull out, dual lever monobloc and single lever professional taps.
Quooker Hot Water Tap.
Hot water taps are a great, sustainable investment. Quooker boiling water taps provide instant boiling water which saves you time, money and energy. Instant boiling water means you use only the water you need, when you want it which is great for the environment. With running costs as low as 3p per day you’ll reduce your energy bills too.
New kitchens and those hoping to re-vamp their kitchen this year should consider a hot tap! The Quooker Fusion is an excellent choice. It is available with a modern square or round spout in a number of striking finishes. Choose from gold, black, stainless steel, polished chrome and even patinated copper. It fits into a standard tap hole so can be fitted into an existing kitchen too!
