European Kitchen Design trends in Australia
Current kitchen design trends reflect elements of our natural environment. Verging on being an art form within itself, contemporary design combines traditional with that of the past. And all this is realised within today’s digital technologies. The popularity of eco-trends is enhanced by the beauty of raw, natural textures; bright textures within a monotone interior or the quietness of minimalism. Limitations in design possibility – there are none! Today, possibilities in design and finishes are endless! Current design trends in kitchens and home living are on the precipice of understanding who we are and where we are moving.
The current strength in design is the combination of two seemingly opposite forces – the ornamental and geometric. The focus is being given to the structural: the sheen of the surface as juxtaposed with the brightness of metal finishes, an exotic veneer or modern technological materials, produced using nanotechnology. Colour trends – the use of bright colours are utilised as an emphasis, a feature within itself.
Beautifully designed kitchens are only the beginning! Functionality and reliability can only be achieved when using high-quality materials in its construction. The key elements of any kitchen are:
♦︎ Premium design elements
♦︎ The highest quality materials for kitchen finishes being facades and interiors
♦︎ Reliable accessories for closing mechanisms
♦︎ The material of the bench tops
