It always takes a while for interior design trends to filter down into the rooms where most money is spent which is, perhaps, why the trend for an eclectic, mix-and-match style has only just ventured out of the living room and into the kitchen!
As a favourite of our interior designers Essex, the eclectic look involves borrowing and merging many different styles from varying periods and origins. The key to designing a trendy and eclectic kitchen is to mix traditional, vintage styles with modern ones without it looking chaotic and cluttered.
Start by putting together a mood board of your perfect bespoke kitchens Essex.
Take into account the colours, materials, tiles and lighting you want to play with.
Our designers believe the kitchen is “an ideal room to bring this look to life,” working best when the units are ultra-modern and handleless - a perfect setting for a mix of different materials and textures to be incorporated. Other great eclectic features include an antique, eye-catching chandelier above an island or dining table.
This look lends itself to freestanding pieces of furniture such as reclaimed dressers or tables where you can display a mix of vintage plates and pots on open shelving to add character and extra interest.
We even recommend recovering a couple of dining chairs in a funky bright fabric or even placing some mismatched vintage chairs to create an incredibly sophisticated look.
If you’re looking to jazz up the kitchen without splurging on tons of new furniture, you can bring texture and colour into the space through the floor.
As the eclectic style is all about personality, you have so many options to play with when it comes to picking out flooring. You can choose contemporary, porcelain tiles to add a level of sophistication pairing them with rustic, reclaimed floorboards for contrast.
