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.
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.

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.
Do’s. Opt for a wide island bench “Ample space is key for preparing food, cooking, entertaining, and dining at the bench on bar stools, says Porter Davis, World of Style, Interior Designer Patrizia Romeo. Make a statement If your sink and sink mixer are on the island bench, make these a feature. Achieve this by selecting a feature finish to your tapware, such as matte black, gunmetal or bronze tapware, says Patrizia. Include an undermount sink with a removable drainer for a more streamlined look (as a drainer will take up valuable bench space). If your appliances live on the island bench choose functional statement pieces.
Great idea, mine leaves so much more on my bench, wrote one. Added another: If I wasn’t in my jarmies already I’d be down at Kmart right now buying these – this is EXCELLENT! Tracey, I love you! Revealed a third: Omg I so need this. We have so much thing just laying around on our kitchen bench and I have nowhere to put it.
