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.
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.

I walked around the shops for an hour looking for something to hide all [my husband’s] bench stuff, gave up and made this. Really happy with it and stoked I can hide all the bench bits and pieces. Tracey’s clever storage hack received a huge reception on the Facebook group, with many revealing that they’ve been desperate for a kitchen bench clutter solution.
Black. Black is still very much trending in kitchen island design. It looks fabulous on its own but equally compliments many colours and surfaces. It does mark easily, so make sure you choose the right finish.Colour. For those who aren’t scared of colour, the strong, moody and muted colours are definitely trending. Greys and greens are still strong but are easy on the eye, and these colours can set the tone for your home.
Simple and elegant. Who says grey is boring? The shade is the ideal modern kitchen colour. This glass subway tile splashback brings a quiet elegance to the clean lines of this kitchen and echo the timber wall panelling above. Flecks of grey in the choice of benchtop and concrete flooring bring the look together but it’s the timber dining table and chairs that really add character.
