Claremont Kitchen (2)With the New Year, comes new design trends in the building industry and for us, this means we must keep up with the aspiring and emerging movements or even revived trends in order to give you the most perfectly suited and up to date ideas for your new home.

Being the heart of any home, the kitchen is the first place to look when considering renovations or building a new home.

Take a look at a few of 2016’s kitchen designs and style ideas predicted to be the most dominant for this year and the years to come:-

 

MATERIALS

In today’s busy lifestyle, coming home and reconnecting with peace and tranquillity is what we crave, so to create an earthier and authentic feel to any design, use concrete and natural stone, or rustic wood and timber in its’ rawest form. Our preferred supplier for stone benchtops, Smartstone offer the most versatile, natural looking and affordable veined quartz surfaces in the market today.

 

SHAPES

Throughout the ages and still going strong, geometric patterns and shapes have been used in architectural and interior design due to its versatility, boldness and the ability to add character to any room. Particularly on splashbacks, incorporating ideas such as hexagonal wall and floor tiles, rectangular tiles in herringbone pattern or even square tiles with geometric patterns will add dimension and have the adaptability to suit both contemporary and traditional style kitchens. Visit our Claremont Display Home at Rochedale to see perfect balance between crisp clean lines and versatile shapes.

 

TEXTURES

Another design concept securing its’ place in kitchen trends this year, are textures, especially on cabinet fronts as it adds depth and interest to any space. Take a look at our laminate supplier, Polytec who introduced exciting colours, textures and finishes to their range this year including a new Shimmer finish and coloured embossed wood grain for a unique finish.

 

METALS

Hugely popular over the past few years, metals and metallic like brass, gold and copper will continue to outshine cooler materials, with their ability to add elegance and warmth to any space. Consider using feature copper pendent lights that hang above your island bench, copper range hoods and tapware, brass handles or even a glass splashback with a metallic finish.
