Quiet Luxury – the latest kitchen trend worth shouting about!

Last Updated on : 17th November 2023

November kicks off trend prediction season, whereby analysts and forecasters reveal next year’s hot new colours, materials and kitchen design trends. Touted as the modest way to do luxe, Quiet Luxury has been hugely popular this year and is showing no signs of abating as we speed towards 2024. Find out how Roundhouse bespoke kitchens and furniture are embracing this sophisticated style direction, and why you should, too!

What is Quiet Luxury?

More subtle design influence, than hard-hitting fashion fix, the Quiet Luxury trend encourages thoughtful decorating with a focus on high quality kitchen materials and fittings, artisanal craftsmanship and longevity. In short, Quiet Luxury is an ethos Roundhouse Design has championed from the very beginning. It’s about the use of interesting textures and natural materials to create elegant, timeless schemes that whisper, rather than shout. Less ostentation, more refined stylishness.

Built to last

When specifying fixtures and fittings for a luxury modern kitchen design with Quiet Luxury in mind, look to premium brands with solid reputations. When recommending appliances for any luxurious kitchen design, we trust in German manufacturers like Gaggenau and Miele, while Sub Zero and Wolf are our go-to for American-style cooling and professional cooking. Similarly, seek out modern worktops and surfaces made from luxurious materials that not only look effortlessly beautiful but are durable and sustainably manufactured. For example, the Studio Urbo & Metro kitchen above features cool kitchen worktops in Caesarstone’s Rugged Concrete, which has a soft textural quality that exudes a subtle sense of luxury without a hint of pretention.

Classical design cues

Classical styling sits at the core of the Quiet Luxury trend, where a restrained way of decorating naturally leads to exquisitely tailored bespoke kitchens that will stand the tests of time. Classic needn’t mean traditional; a modern-classic kitchen design with luxe moments can prove just as timeless as an opulent Georgian-style kitchen. The success of this contemporary floating kitchen lies in its simplicity – a pared back palette of materials allows the bookmatched Calacatta Gold splashback to truly shine.

Understated details

This modern luxury kitchen island is a masterclass in the art of combining multiple materials and finishes in a quietly confident way. However, while the entire luxury big kitchen design is discreetly impressive, it’s the little details that really underscore that all-important air of exclusivity. For example, the perfectly mitred Sharknose edge on the African Fusion Quartzite island worktop cuts away to reveal a smart shadowline backed in antiqued brass, while the Quooker boiling water tap adds a splash of gold above.

What are the colours of quiet luxury?

Serene colours are the order of the day for luxury contemporary kitchens with a hushed ambiance. Think muted shades in soft, warm tones like mink, stone and greige. We like to use tone-on-tone paint palettes, for example Little Greene’s Portland Stone collection, which has a gentle putty tint and comes in Pale, Light and Dark variants for easy layering. To elevate a neutral palette, inject metallic kitchen accents via hardware, taps and lighting.
