Pinterest’s coveted annual trend report that was released at the end of 2023 pinpointed ‘kitschens’ as being a huge trend for this year, with Gen X and Boomers increasing their online searches for the likes of ‘retro pink kitchens’ and ‘eccentric kitchen’. More of us are moving away from the minimalist, Quiet Luxury aesthetic and opting instead for pops of colour and thrifted accessories when it comes to kitchen design in 2024.

A great and relatively easy way to bring kitsch to your home is through your flooring; our range of patterned and colourful LVT is not only spot on for the trend, but it’s super durable and low maintenance too which is ideal for busy kitchen spaces where you may be cooking, entertaining and even working remotely from. Here are some of our favourite examples of kitsch interiors in real life homes that have used our flooring to embrace all things colour and expressive.

Colourful checkerboard flooring

As one of our bestselling floor designs of last year, it’s no surprise that some of the influencers we have worked with in recent months have opted for a blue and white checkerboard floor in their kitchen. It’s retro yet modern at the same time, offering a twist to the more traditional black and white checkered floor we’re used to seeing in period properties.

Fran’s use of the the blue and white check in her family kitchen proves how you can have understated style alongside something more eye-catching. It brought her ‘kitschen’ vision to life and looks great alongside the warmer colour of her kitchen units and stylish wall panelling.

Kate also chose our Squares Bay Blue & Linen White tiles when it came to her kitchen transformation and it perfectly complements her Barbie-inspired aesthetic. Pink kitchen searches on Pinterest have grown hugely in the last twelve months, partly thanks to the hit Barbie movie, and we think this looks truly kitsch alongside the pastel tones.

If you fancy a more muted nod to the checkerboard trend that also encapsulates all things ‘kitschens’, Ecru & Latte White is a great option. Featured here in Charlotte’s modern kitchen, this contemporary neutral makes for a stylish and elegant check that when paired with brightly coloured cabinets makes for a carefree and playful aesthetic.

Bold & bright pattern

One of the joys of the ‘kitschen’ home trend is that there are no limits when it comes to clashing colours and patterns; one is encouraged to mix retro pattern with modern hues and appliances to really make the most of this ‘more is more’ vibe. A great example of this is in Dominy’s lovely kitchen makeover featuring Parquet Hunter Green; partnered with bright orange woodwork and a hint to the Bloomcore trend with floral wallpaper, it’s a maximalist’s heaven.

Pair monochrome with pastels

When incorporating fun and kitsch elements to your space, it’s also important to remember balance from time to time. Pairing a bold and playful pattern, like the geometric and monochrome Dovetail Ink Black, with light pastels can help not only reflect light and therefore make a space feel bigger, but level out the quirkiness.

Laura’s colourful kitchen that also uses Dovetail Ink Black is another great example of the kitsch hype; she’s used the monochrome floor tile to create zones in her family space that makes the pattern stand out even more, especially against her pretty floral walls and rainbow palette. We love pairing a patterned LVT with a wood border to create a nook in your room that can seem that bit cosier or stand out.
