6 Kitchen Trends Coming Our Way

May 18, 2018

Here are 6 kitchen trends you can expect to see in Australian kitchens soon.


1. Texture


Designers are moving away from high-gloss finishes to more earthy, tactile ones. These tactile finishes create a warm, natural aesthetic in the kitchen.



2. Rich, natural materials


Kitchens are set to boast rich, warm colours and sumptuous, natural materials. Think timbers that range from honey tones through to deep browns. When paired with stainless steel and marble this creates a sophisticated yet welcoming feel.



3. All-in-one cooking islands


Stove-tops integrated seamlessly into kitchen islands or a hub that incorporates everything from cooking zone and dining area to storage and display.



4. Suspended shelves


Designers are now fully embracing the concept of open displays in the kitchen. Suspended shelving which hangs from the ceiling provides the perfect opportunity to display potted plants and collectables, and adds a sense of depth and luxuriousness to the space.



5. Stainless steel benchtops


Once seen mainly in commercial kitchens, stainless steel makes for a perfect neutral that sits beautifully alongside all the rich timbers and brown marbles coming through.


As a material it is also tough enough to cope with just about anything a busy cook can throw at it, although it does tend to scratch.



6. More variety in integrated handles


Fully integrated handles that are part of the cabinetry itself to single-pull handles made from contrasting materials, such as stainless steel on timber doors can add a subtle sense of interest to a kitchen.
