Here's what we're loving in kitchen design right now

The trend for dark-coloured cabinets is going nowhere, and industrial-style accents are also have a moment. Here are the kitchen trends you need to know about now

1 Add interest to a neutral scheme with a pop of a bright colour such as red. 

2 Combining black cabinets and accessories with natural accents in the island and inset creates a truly striking finish. Broomside Design, Yarm 

3 Green and gold is a combination thatís yet to go out of style. This chalky sage green kitchen is brought to life with gold hardware and accessories. 

4 Recessed oak storage sits above the sink in this practical design from Schuller. Not only does it look good, it means everything you need is in easy reach. Schuller at InHouse, Hexham

5 This spacious island allows room for both breakfast bar-style seating, and built-in bench seating for a dining table. David Morgan, Burnopfield

6 A bespoke hanging shelf has been crafted in the same smoked oak as the cabinet doors in this kitchen. With an embedded LED strip providing overhead task lighting, itís a practical as well as beautiful choice. Poggenpohl at Carvetii Town & Country Interiors, Carlisle 

7 According to Ashburton Interiors, a warm and welcoming neutral palette is still popular in 2023, with interior trends leaning towards exploring patterns, textures, and personalisation. Ashburton Interiors, Gosforth

11 In a recent survey by Houzz, 26 percent of homeowners said they worked from their kitchens – and more and more often people are choosing to incorporate a dedicated office area within their space. Mowlem & Co, Jesmond

12 'The continuation of colour across the kitchen is one of the key trends throughout 2023. Natural hues such as greens and greys are ideal for bringing the outside in, achieving a harmonious, calming environment,' Second Nature Kitchens at Court Homemakers, Stockton and Northallerton
