Revealed! These are the most popular kitchen trends on Instagram

We have always loved Instagram as a source of the top kitchen trends. While we love flicking through a magazine or scrolling through Pinterest, we always find that Instagram is where the real stuff is. The budget makeovers, the quick revamps, the easy hacks, and that is was we are all about: simple and stylish ideas.


 So at No.1 we have #farmhousekitchen with 615,000 IG posts using this hashtag and it takes 37% of the photos analyzed. And the pull is regional heritage, natural wood floors and a farm style table. To recreate a farmhouse kitchen in your current space look out for these features mentioned, you can source trade style furniture from antique shops but add your own style by teaming it with one-off finds like these pendant lights. Don’t forget the star of the show – every farmhouse kitchen needs an Aga or range cooker right? 


Coming in at No.2 is the #modernkitchen hashtag with a total of 436,132 IG posts using this hashtag. Form and structure where key components with concrete and steel mentioned as the favorite materials. Modern kitchens have strong visual lines and a less cluttered feel and this is where the appeal lies. Concrete and steel are a winning combo for a streamlined kitchen, but make sure you warm up the look with wooden elements, you want your kitchen to feel welcoming rather than clinical.


With just under 250,000 IG posts using the #countrykitchen hashtag, the good old country kitchen rolls in at No.3. Now, you don’t need to get all oldie worldlier to have a country kitchen, this beautiful image shows you how to create a stunning kitchen that retains the natural beauty of original features whilst having a contemporary touch. The sleek base units are truly gorgeous when teamed with the beams and pretty pale pink plaster walls. Team with hand-crafted ceramics for authenticity.


#rustickitchens sits at No.4 with 95,895 IG posts using the hashtag and it’s a lovely mix of old wooden beams, unique freestanding pieces and beautiful textures. This is the mix and match style kitchen which makes for a wonderful space full of character – source that dresser top and hang it on the wall, sand the floorboards and paint tongue and groove in a classic shade.


Rolling in at No.5 is #cottagekitchens with just under 67K of IG posts using the hashtag, and quite frankly, who wouldn’t love a cottage kitchen? Cozy low ceilings, flagstone flooring, the odd beam or more and maybe even a stable door? Yes please! We love the mix of bare wood and painted units and the splash of green paint on the far wall, the metal and wood bar stools are a great addition too, mix up your materials to create an interesting and characterful scheme.
