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.
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.

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.
According to data collected by the Houzz 2018 AU Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, of the top three ’New Built-ins’ in the kitchen, kitchen island benches are number one with 46 per cent of kitchen renovators opting for this design feature, followed by additional pantries or cabinets and breakfast bars. The same report found that the top three materials for kitchen benches right now are engineered quartz, laminate and granite.
Concept island. Kitchen with curved walls, island and design features. Design-led and contemporary, this kitchen plays with shape and dimension by having the kitchen set against a curved wall, the island has a plumbed-in sink that intersects with a breakfast bar. All of which combines to create a spacious, unusual and very functional kitchen layout.
