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.
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.

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.
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.
What does every kitchen island bench need? Emma Blomfield is an experienced interior designer and she says that size, powerpoints, storage and seating are integral to the success and functionality of a kitchen island table. Space. Everyone seems to congregate around the kitchen island table, so it’s important that you have enough room to fit everyone gathering around it. You’ll also need room to prepare food, says Emma.
