Geometric rules. The hexagonal tiles in this splashback might appear too busy in an otherwise visually crowded space. Here it works to create interest and offset the expanse of white cabinetry overhead. Brushed metal linear handles in the lower cabinets link back to the tiles, as well as the VJ panelling elsewhere in the surrounding kitchen space.
Less is more. In terms of style, minimalism is still king but will blend itself with the existing style of the house. I anticipate crossovers; for example in an industrial style home or a mid-century home with different design elements and choices. Clients want to conceal their clutter but showcase their style and character through really interesting and considered finishes, textures, colour, lighting, shelving space and decorative elements.

The butcher’s block island. Country kitchen with butchers block island. Perfect for country style kitchens or rustic home, a freestanding butcher’s block kitchen island bench can be picked up and moved, but is traditionally made of a timber heavy enough to hold it’s own against pushing, shoving and cooking. These can be as big or as small as you want, and can be added to any kitchen at any time.
Power. If you love to cook and make delicious things, having powerpoints at the kitchen island bench is a must, especially when there is more than one cook in the kitchen, says Emma. It allows you to blend, toast or grind without interfering in the cook zone of the kitchen.
Bright, white, traditional and classic, this kitchen is spacious and modern with a touch of old world charm. Metallic fixtures and pendant lighting up the glam factor and the kitchen island bench is wide enough to accommodate a sink, appliances and still have enough room for people to eat at the breakfast bar and sit on stools.
