Biophilic design is an architecture and interior design principle that incorporates the natural environment through the use of direct nature, and indirect nature. The popularity of biophilic design in the home skyrocketed in 2020 to bring our spaces closer to our natural surroundings.

When designing a kitchen around a neutral colour pallet it is often tempting to choose a monocratic pallet that ends up creating an uninviting space. By choosing a pallet that consists of shades of grey, black, and white it is incredibly easy for your kitchen space to begin to feel a touch clinical thanks to the cool tones of these colours. A warm neutral pallet can provide a light and airy feeling to a kitchen of any size

To create a kitchen that is trendy yet timeless it is key to make the most of natural materials, choosing to accent your kitchen with materials such as wood and stone helps to add depth to a neutral colour pallet. We can offer a variety of wooden door fronts in a range of different styles and colours. In addition, we offer a line of door fronts designed to resemble natural stone on concrete in several different shades to suit any style of kitchen.

When it comes to choosing your worktops, it is relatively easy to incorporate natural materials thanks to the popularity of quartz, granite and timber. At Aston Designs, we also offer a range of laminate and compact laminates that provide natural finishes as an alternative to these worktops. Compact laminates are a great option, providing all the benefits of quartz while coming with a range of unique finishes such as slate.

A vital part of creating a kitchen that reflects nature is incorporating textural elements. A subtle way to incorporate texture into your kitchen is through the use of tiles. Tiles can come in all shapes and sizes giving them almost limitless possibilities when considering them a visual focal point in your kitchen. In recent years there has been an increase in demand for tiles that reflect more natural shapes and patterns. Wave wall tiles and ceramic tiles with a subtle raised waved pattern inspired by flowing water can add a calming element through the perception of movement that complements matt slab and handless styles of kitchens.

If the use of wooden door fronts is excessive, wood-effect tiles could be used instead to incorporate warms and texture in a more manageable dose. Wood effect times can come in a variety of patterns from flat, resembling wooden flooring, to more decorative effects that utilise horizontal lines, vertical lines, or a combination of the two to create eye-catching designs.
