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.

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.
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.
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.
