From classic colour palettes to innovations that will maximise your budget, we share the top five kitchen design trends that renovators should consider.
Classic Colour Palettes
Colour palettes revolving around white and neutral shades will continue to be popular. Features such as timber and black or copper accents add interest.
Focusing on a clean, pared back colour scheme will allow your new kitchen to work with your existing home. Of course you can still add colour, texture and personality through things like stools, appliances, prints, linens and lighting features.
A Focus On Sinks
Gone are the days of the standard stainless steel sink. From black and copper sinks to oversized bowls and clever sink accessories, we are predicting sinks will become a much more important kitchen design feature in 2017.
When it comes to kitchen sinks, there are a few things to consider. It’s best to seek out the advice of an expert so you don’t get confused by terminology such as flush mounting, roll edges and seals. A kitchen designer will ensure you get the right sink for your bench top and overall design.
Kitchen renovators need to be smart about how they use their cabinets and storage solutions so as much usable space can be accessed. Size really doesn’t matter when it comes to your kitchen if it is well-designed, functional and meets the needs of your family.
Apply the mantra that storage is king in your kitchen. Look to clever technologies on offer by Hafele and Blum to ensure maximum functionality. Think corner drawers, under sink pull outs, vertical storage, box drawer systems and user friendly technology such as Blum servo-drive.
Renovating your kitchen on a budget doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. While an engineered stone bench top might be the stuff of dreams, there are some great laminate designs now available that will help you to achieve a designer look without the price tag.
We’re predicting modern laminates to be brought back this year by kitchen renovators looking for an affordable yet stylish look.
Maximising For Entertaining
The kitchen is the hub of your home has never rung more true. Renovators are increasingly looking to create a kitchen design that promotes entertaining and social interaction. From integrated wine fridges to island benches and outdoor kitchens. The kitchen hub will be high on the renovation list in 2017!
