Mid coloured timbers are increasingly being featured in designer kitchens. Timber adds warmth and texture making a kitchen feel more homely and lived in. Consider walnut blackbutt and spotted gum as beautiful timber species to incorporate in your kitchen design. If solid timber is out of your budget explore the beautiful natural timber veneers and textured timber style melamine available.
Natural stone is still a strong look with marble being one of the most desirable bench tops. If budget allows then selecting the slab for your kitchen can be a rewarding experience. For durability and price look no further than the engineered stone bench tops available. The range of colours and styles of engineered marble is growing all the time. We’re also seeing a hint of precious stones coming through. Could this be a sign of things to come for kitchen trends for 2016?
Matt finishes are becoming more popular across flooring, cabinetry and bench tops. The Silestone 'suede finish' delivers a unique Matt finish for bench tops in a range of desirable colours.
There are so many beautiful pendant lights available to dress up your kitchen. I’m a huge of fan of copper pendants and love the warmth it brings to a space. You could equally choose glass, timber, brass or a pendant with a solid matt surface.
2015 kitchens are bringing back the tiled splash back! There are so many amazing tiles available ranging from handcrafted, glass mosaics, patterned, plain, textured, marble, metallic and a huge selection of shapes and sizes. Tiles add another element to kitchen design and your options are unlimited.
Luxe metallics are a must for me. We’ve seen copper featured in interiors in recent years and now we’re also seeing brass, pewter, brushed nickel and gold being used in feature tap ware and handles. Metallics can provide a touch of glamour to most kitchen colour palettes.
