Abode is embracing the growing trend for using natural materials in interior design with a series of nature-inspired timber-detailed kitchen innovations.
Paul Illingworth, design manager at Abode, said: “Next year will continue to redefine the use of natural elements in the home, as many of us seek comfort and convenience from raw materials like wood, marble and natural stone, metal and glass. Incredibly hardwearing and versatile in design, the kitchen has become a playground for new levels of creativity and the very best room schemes are now exploring a more conscious design aesthetic which offers the same benefits as nature but in the home. Combinations of wood and metal have become our greatest natural resources for elevating the kitchen space as the premium market becomes more attuned to using natural materials within the built environment. For us, the wet zone is the latest area in the kitchen helping to satisfy our customers’ ongoing affinity for nature.”
As well as predicting that nature-inspired kitchen taps with timber handles will be a growing trend in 2024, the company also believes that eco-friendly stainless steel sinks with prep zones featuring wooden accents such as its FSC certified wooden prep board, pictured with its stainless steel System Sync sink, will increasingly appeal to consumers.
