Prepare you kitchen for a summer overhaul with the top expected trends of 2018. We have gathered a few of our top trends to help you transform the heart of the home – your kitchen.

Cabinetry Trend

two-tone cabinetry

Add character to your kitchen by installing two-tone cabinetry. A beautiful mix of a wooden finish with a white hue looks both natural and ties in easily with a neutral home and is one of the most popular choices. Though, virtually any colour works. The trendy style is to have lighter shades on top cabinetry and darker shades on lower cabinetry.

Colour to Watch

Plum + Warm Accents

You will see this dramatic deep purple is colour everywhere next year. We recommend utilising this colour as your focal point on a splashback for a wow factor and so it does not overpower your kitchen. Alternatively, use plum for décor features. A rise of warm accent selections like gold, copper, clay and ginger colours have drawn inspiration from nature to be used as pops of colour throughout the kitchen without undertaking a large renovation. Neutral kitchens will benefit the most as these pops of colour help to enhance the space.


Appliance garage

It’s a great way to not only incorporate the minimalist trend into your kitchen but to also easily hide away your appliances. Minimise the clutter on your bench top by storing away items and still easily be able to take the items out. Appliance garage comes in a variety of styles including swing-out doors, tambour doors and doors that rise up.

Wall trend

Personalising with tiles

Create a custom back splash with not just the tiles you choose but by the way you display them. Horizontal tiling has been a classic choice for years and now vertical and diagonal tiling is rising in popularity to add a new dimension to kitchens. Also, vibrant patterns and colours help to create character in your kitchen as an alternative to new directional tiling.
