Create a streamline entertainers kitchen by incorporating hidden concepts such as a butler’s pantry, integrated appliances, or small appliances hidden within an appliance hutch or behind a roller door, will keep your kitchen clutter-free. Touch catch cabinetry and integrated handles such as our brand new Crest Channel handles complete the look.
Including an island bench in your kitchen is not only visually beautiful, it also provides a plethora of additional benefits. They create a beautiful informal dining space and a natural gathering hub in the home as well as providing plenty of additional storage. When planning your new kitchen layout, consider incorporate design features such as serveries to connect to your outdoor areas, as well as dining nooks, desks, bars into your kitchen design and transform the kitchen into a multifunctional space that connects to the other living spaces within your home.
In recent years we have seen the emerging popularity of curves in interior design both here in Australia and internationally, from furniture design, to archways throughout homes, and now we are seeing this beautiful feature taking the spotlight in kitchen design.
Three out of the five kitchens from The Block featured a curved island bench or benchtop, a feature that blew the judges and the viewers away, and is something we will be seeing a lot more of next year. Contrasting with the clean, straight lines of the rest of your kitchen cabinetry, a sculptural island provides a generous, casual dining space where people feel closer and more connected.
Plus, think outside of the square with our new Pet Beds so that your fur children are part of your design. If your kitchen is connected to your garden or balcony, add the pet bed to the back run of cabinetry closest to the outdoor space, otherwise it’s perfect within your mudroom and laundry.
In 2021 kitchen colour schemes will reflect earthy, organic and natural tones; with cabinetry, benchtops and splashbacks celebrating textural, raw and matte finishes.
Expect to see bright whites in a matte finish, blacks and soft greys with one focal feature of a vibrant yet natural colour such as green, mint, or deep blue. Our new Ballina Enamel Natural finish is an exciting addition to our range, its green tone providing the perfect amount of colour when paired with a monochrome palette.
Add warmth and texture by introducing timber into your kitchen design. Our Prime Oak and Bottega Oak doors feature a timber woodgrain, mimicking the look and feel of timber without the maintenance.
Rather than a flat door profile opt for one of our new profiles: Avalon, a traditional V-Groove door profile or Avoca, for a more contemporary, thinner-spaced V-Groove profile. Both are available in a matte finish, and we recommend using them across wall cabinets and/or wrapping around an island bench for maximum impact.
