Home appliance trends: three to look out for in 2018
For many of us, appliances are some of the most important investments we will make to ensure our homes run as smoothly as possible. From washing machines and tumble dryers to fridge freezers and dishwashers, we rely on these investments every day.
As important investments, we naturally want them to function seamlessly and look great for as long as possible, which is why manufacturers have been working hard to introduce new features and streamline the aesthetics of their products. Although still often referred to as ‘white goods’, modern iterations of appliances we have all grown so accustomed to are often far from plain white.
Pretty in pastel
Pastels have been making waves in the interior design sphere for a while, with the popularity of pretty, soft hues - such as millennial pink - surging in popularity. With top manufacturers such as KitchenAid and Smeg expanding their colour ranges to include soft green, pink and aqua shades, the proliferation in the popularity of pastel tones is only set to increase over the coming 12 months.
Pastel colours tend to work especially well within retro-inspired spaces; however, they can also look ultra-contemporary when paired with high-shine materials such as stainless steel and chrome.
Keeping things natural
If you are keen to introduce a feeling of warmth and luxury to your space, disguising home appliances with natural materials is something that is relatively simple to achieve and makes an unbelievably huge impact. Using wood veneers and other natural materials, including leather and cork, helps to seamlessly integrate our technology within our homes.
You might not want your fridge freezer to be the central focal point of your kitchen. By ensuring all appliances are fully integrated, you can guarantee that that they will fit within your design without immediately distracting the eye or attracting all the attention when you would really like to create a feature elsewhere.
Make a statement
Whether you want to make a big style statement by investing in a brightly coloured fridge freezer or introduce splashes of colour in smaller portions with a stylish food mixer or coffee machine, manufacturers have something perfect hitting the shelves near you very soon. Look out for rich teals, bold reds and sunset oranges making their way into every aspect of appliance design, from washing machines to vacuum cleaners.
Keep on the right side of contemporary by opting for designs with shiny chrome details. You are sure to smile every time you step into your space and see bright flashes of colour and sense a certain effervescence throughout.
