TREAT YOUR ISLAND • When aesthetics and functionality merge, your kitchen will star!
CLEAR VIEW • Long gone are the days of the all-white kitchen reigning supreme. Dark is in… and in a big way. As you start gathering your kitchen mood board, you’ll find there are myriad ways to execute this trend – one is to incorporate a deep forest green with large expanses of glass. Here, ably supported by the outdoorsy green and timber contemporary units, the glass connects you with the outdoors.
GRACE IS GREY • Ditch white and go with easy-to-live-with grey! It works well in a kitchen that aims for a calm, contemporary feel. But making a spacious family kitchen feel inviting requires pre-planning, and it begins by scaling up your design so the end result will suit your needs and the room’s proportions. Big-ticket built-in appliances are hard to retrofit, so make room for them now.
CALL OF THE COAST • Does a Hamptons-style kitchen speak to you? Yes? To achieve a coastal casual yet elegantly refined space, include lashings of white, dark wood floors for contrast, Shaker-style cabinets, marble counters and splashbacks, feature pendants and architectural detail, be it original or manufactured.
MODERN MARVEL • Timber kitchens have been lost in the wilderness for a few years, but they’re back with a bang, albeit the timber is slightly paler. The aesthetic is cool and contemporary, especially when combined with crisp white for walls, base cabinetry and splashback tiles, together with hits of edgy black. Hard to believe this beauty is actually an off-the-shelf melamine flat pack with a few customisable additions.
