Tracey says she spent ages searching stores for a ready-made storage solution to tidy up her kitchen clutter when she ‘gave up’ and came up with this genius idea using two Kmart products that ANYONE can do. One $15 shelf, 4 of the $2 small and narrow bamboo drawer tidies and I finally have a way to hide all the stuff my husband and kids need to leave on our kitchen bench, Tracey wrote.
Storage. Storage is always important, such as big drawers for pots and pans. What is trending in kitchen island bench tops?. Emma says she is torn between kitchen island bench tops, but loves tiles on an island bench. I love the colour and texture you can work with, but I also love concrete bench tops, as they now come in some beautiful colours.

Colourful and contemporary kitchen island. Kitchen island with blue bench top and red chairs. More suited to home with an eclectic or ’bachelor pad’ vibe, this kitchen isn’t afraid of colour. Experiment with materials and lighting if you want a similar effect in your home, and remember that sometimes less is more, that’s why this sleek blue bench top and red plastic chairs work so well in a stark white kitchen.
Line it up. Imagine this kitchen without the addition of the chopping board and ceramics that dress it. The sharp lines of all of the surfaces of tiles, timber, lighting and cabinetry work together beautifully but it’s the addition of the vignettes of daily life that make the difference here. Circular shapes in styling are key here – soft edges on ceramics, gently curved bowls and pastel colours gently ease this space to life.
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.
