The Ideal Home…the Ideal Kitchen.

We love to inspire our clients, but we also love to be inspired. That’s why you’ll find the team at Lime Interiors, heading to London Olympia between 22nd March-7th April, to visit The Ideal Home Show 2019. With over 600 innovative companies exhibiting, 100’s of free talks, the latest in technology for the home and fresh ideas from the experts, we plan on returning to Lime HQ armed with design ideas for the future that are inspired by the theme for 2019 – the Best of British.

There will be six gorgeous room sets this year featuring the latest in colour, ideas and trends to bring any home to life. The Best of British theme will be focusing on home grown talent and we understand that room-sets will include a family living space leading out to the garden, a grownup living room with a boot room using natural materials, a bedroom fit for a queen in a combination of contemporary/classic and the room that obviously peaks our interest, is an open-plan kitchen-diner with touches of Hollywood.

So, aside from the Best of British theme, what else can we expect for 2019 in terms of style and colour? The experts are talking Pinks, burnt oranges and yellows, gorgeous greens and Pantone’s colour of the year, Living Coral, with each scheme focusing on inspiring ideas for modern living.

One of the major design trends for 2019 is the extra-long, multi-zoned kitchen island with a cantilever to accommodate stools beneath for a more informal effect and a run of cupboards and drawers beneath the worktop, to keep your work surfaces clutter-free. Coupled with a very cool induction hob, for many this would be the kitchen island of dreams.

Also bang on trend is the use of opposites. High-gloss surfaces that are matched with matt or concrete effect within the furniture doors, drawers and worksurfaces. The use of a two-tone colour combination in 2019 kitchens is on-trend, with darker, tall units complemented by a stand-out island in a lighter shade.

The next big fashion must have in appliances and essential for the new contemporary kitchen is the Cooling Wall. This consists of a tall larder fridge, a tall freezer and a tall wine fridge placed side by side in any configuration of your choice. The fronts of the fridge and freezer can be the same as your run of cabinets or in stainless steel for an industrial look, while the wine fridge has a UV glass front and integrated lighting to make a feature of the bottles within.

We wanted to share the 3D design images of our latest kitchen renovation project, that we feel encapsulates a combination of all the latest trends; two-tone, multi surface with a high spec cooling wall in a stunning combined kitchen/study .
