Richly Veined Marble

Marble is the epitome of luxury and is staying as popular as ever in 2022, with the current trend on richly veined marble as an added feature to your kitchen. To give your kitchen a high-end feel, pair your marble with bold metallic finishes.

Metallic Kitchen UnitsĀ 

Carrying on from pops of colour, metallic kitchen units are being used as a way of creating new, eye-catching spaces. This trend is extending the shift in having bold and fun kitchens spaces for entertaining and everyday life.


A trend that will never go out of fashion is a neutral kitchen. Not only does it create a calming, clean and streamlined feel to a space, you can also dress it up with your choice of metallic and marble details to add texture and depth to your kitchen design.


As we talked about earlier, metals are very in but none more so then gold. Again there is very much a trend towards luxe. A key look that we are seeing time and time again is gold details combined with forest green kitchen units and marble – very chic!
