Summer Styling

Summer is fast upon us, and at no other time of year is it more apparent that the kitchen really is the hub of the home. That’s why it is so important when designing your kitchen to keep this at the forefront. Think style and functionality!

Your kitchen needs to be designed with you in mind. Consider the way you will use your kitchen when trying to decide things like double bowl sink or single bowl, instant hot or cold water taps, insinkerator or not?

Once you’ve made the descisions about the functionality of your kitchen you can play around with your own personal style. There are numerous ways to inject style and sophistication into your kitchen that reflect your own personality. We’ve put together a few ideas to get you started…

BENCHTOPS
Benchtops need to be functional and suit your lifestyle, but they can also make a big statement, especially since they often make up a rather large surface area! Make sure you choose one that wil suit your lifestyle and when choosing colour consider how it compliments the other colour aspects of your kitchen.

TAPS
The new generation of tapware extends well in to the realm of beautiful architectural design. These can be a fabulous way to showcase your design style and compliment the other aspects of your kitchen. The options available really are limitless from black to white, chrome to brass and almost everywhere in between.

SPLASHBACKS
Whether utilising tiles, glass or even beautiful wooden panels, splashbacks no longer need to boring! Geometric patterns are trending at the moment and these look wonderful as a tiled splash back either subtly in a white geo pattern or a bold black or colour palette.

LIGHTING
Like benchtops, your lighting choice needs to be functional, however lights can also set mood of your kitchen. Hanging pendant lights are a dramatic style feature, and the colour, shape and material can complement your other kitchen design choices. On the other hand, hidden lights can help create a streamlined modern look as well as being extremely functional in their placement.
