Tired of lusting after other people’s homes on Instagram and Pinterest? Whether you are remodeling your house or simply seeking a little interior inspiration, Wren Kitchens Showroom Development and Design Director, Darren Watts, reveals five steps to creating a kitchen fit for the ‘gram:
Utilize Raw Materials
“Modern, on-trend industrial kitchens are particularly ‘instagrammable’ this year. To create a stylish, urban and functional kitchen that gives a nod to the industrial trend, opt for raw materials, rich tones and texture. Wren’s natural inspired Elements collection, features over 20 colors – the Metallic Amber, Gold and Rust alongside Copper Slate and Italian Concrete offer a unique, striking aesthetic.”
Make a Statement
“As the heart of the home, it’s important that your kitchen stands out and makes a statement! A great way to do this is by adding feature faucets. Opting for brass, industrial-looking faucets with unusual handles and interesting features is a great way to draw the eye and compliment the space. Pair with similar finishes for cupboard and draw grips to keep a consistent style.”
Keep Your Kitchen Looking Sleek
“Cluttered kitchens are never easy on the eye. To ensure your kitchen looks consistently sleek I recommend investing in clever storage solutions that will keep the space tidy and clutter-free. Wren has over 70 storage options available – hidden drawers, magic corners, perfectly fitted spice racks and secretly hidden recycling bins – which are particularly great if you want a stylish solution that’s functional too.”
Creating a Kitchen Fit for Socializing
“Dinner parties are the perfect time to show off your kitchen! One element that snap happy guests can’t resist is a kitchen island dinner table – no longer just an additional countertop and storage space, it creates stylish additional seating whilst creating a cozy atmosphere.
Wren’s kitchen designers are experts in creating perfectly bespoke islands come breakfast bars in numerous materials from mesmerizing Quartz to hard-wearing Luxury Laminate.
“Don’t forget to dress the space to impress – table runners, candles and color-coordinated crockery will ensure that your island becomes a focal point of the room.”
Fine Details & Finishing Touches
“The finer details and finishing touches are important to ensure your kitchen has a unique style that’s personal to you – it’s the little things that count! To add boho vibes showcase items you’ve collated over time from your travels, create a unique on-trend metallic backsplash with Tek Wall from Wren and stand-out handles can make a huge difference to the aesthetic of your kitchen.”
