Kitchen Trends

The Kitchen is an area that many people spend a lot of time in for entertaining and/or cooking.  It is also an area that we don't mind spending the money on.  Whether you are renovating or building we have found some current kitchen trends that will leave your guest mouths salivating.

We have noticed a shift in current kitchen trends towards Kitchens becoming darker and more highlighted with the use of dark cabinetry.  Marble and timber are still key materials of choice and even timber veneer (under glass) now being used as a splashback option. 

Tip: If you are too afraid of going bold with dark cabinetry and concerned it will date too quickly, then opt for painting the surrounding walls dark (that can be easily repainted in the future) or choose cabinetry that can be easily resurfaced / changed.  However if white kitchens are still your thing, choose cabinetry that is slightly different (darker or lighter) to your wall colour, to create some form of contrast otherwise your kitchen will lose its focal point.
