The Kitchen – Everyones Favourite Room in the Home!

Let’s talk about everyones favourite room in the house – THE KITCHEN!

PAINT COLOURS

2015 was all about blacks and moody blues in the kitchen. This year is more toned down. Think warm greys, cool browns and that timeless classic: crisp white. You should also know that global colour guru, Pantone, named Rose Quartz (light pink) and Serenity (baby blue) as their colours of the year.

SPLASHBACKS

Looking for a splashback that really makes a style statement? 2016 is all about geometric shapes, metallics, custom tiles and exposed brickwork. So look to those cues to make yours the conversation piece of your kitchen.

MATERIALS

Don’t expect 2015’s copper revolution to disappear. If anything, there will more metals around, so expect to also see brass and rose gold, especially for accessories and appliances. Timber will also be used to add texture and warmth to cabinet fronts.

LAYOUTS

Kitchen design and layouts continue to evolve and be refined in 2016. That means your kitchen gets better storage, organisation and access. Look to include pull out shelving, space above cabinets and integrated solutions for all your tech – like built-in charging stations.

INDOOR/OUTDOOR

You will also begin to see kitchens designed to serve your outdoor lifestyle. Think bi-fold windows and doors for easy access to your outdoor entertainment area and double ovens to cater for a group of friends and family.

If you are thinking about making changes to your existing kitchen, lets have a chat about how to make it happen! It might be easier than you think…
