Timber Barn, St. Jacobs
Trends are evolving quickly and nowadays we are all about pushing the limits and taking bigger risks in our kitchens. Not only do we live in our kitchen but we also invite guests into this space, giving us an opportunity reflect both our life and design style. Here's a look at what's trending in kitchens right now.
1. Tuxedo Kitchen Cabinets
Expect to see a rise in two-toned kitchens, or tuxedo kitchens, the combination of mixing dark and light cabinetry by engaging monochromatic colour-blocking. The timeless simplicity of this style appeals to a variation of designers with it’s high contrast fixture and accessory opportunities.
2. Hidden Appliances
You may have to look twice to find the dishwasher as appliances are now integrated into seamless cabinetry to maintain a consistent style and texture.
3. Cast Iron Apron-Front Sinks
Though commonly associated with farmhouse or vintage spaces, cast iron sinks with a front apron extension are finding themselves in a variety of interior styles offering their colour opportunities and shape variations. Cast Iron sinks are known for their appealing enamel coating with long lasting durability.
4. Consider Grey
Grey is creeping up on white to offer an alternative to the ever-popular white palette. It has become complimentary to a two-tone approach which can contrast richly stained wood and light cabinetry.
5. Technology Efficiency
Kitchens in the 21st century offer many different gadgets and integrations for maximum use and storage capacity. Opportunities range from hydraulic cabinets, double layered drawer storage, and appliances controlled with your smartphone.
