Spring brings with it new beginnings. Flowers bud and bloom – nature comes to life. Springs brings with it inspiration. I recently attended the KBB Birmingham – the UK’s largest kitchen, bathroom and bedroom brand industry gathering. Whereby over 400 exhibitors launched new products, revealed insight into new technology, innovation, and colour trends for the year ahead.

So, what can we expect to see this year?

Colour - Pastel colours are in this year- dusky powered pinks, light cotton blues and warm spring yellow with muted grey. A Granite Transformations kitchen makeover will give the opportunity to say goodbye to unfashionable or eccentric finishes and explore fresh colours and a new timeless style direction. With our clever engineered stone worktops utilising recycled products and glass; such colours can be found within our worktops and enduringly matched with our made to measure doors to bring both elements of warmth and cool to a room.

Brassware - Springtime often transports the sense of the sun breaking through the clouds and warmth creeping into a room. The brassware this year will reflect this warmth in a room. Mixing industrial styling with traditional. Contrasting shiny polished brassware with muted matt brushed. Metals from ageless stainless steel to rose gold and even brushed copper. There is so much choice for both kitchens and bathrooms it will inject both personality and add an organic element to a space. Granite Transformations can complete a makeover offering such choice as a retailer for leading brands in this field; FRANKE and BLANCO.

Appliances – Minimalism is a key this year within the appliance world. Home automation and smart home technology is advancing and not only found in the kitchen but making its way into the laundry room. As our pace of life increases so to, the ability to be a step ahead of a meal in the evening, the load of washing required ready for school the next morning. With a touch of a button on a smart phone these appliances will even be able to tell you when a service is required!
