What’s new this year in the world of kitchens? Due to the high use of social media and online technology, Australians have a faster adaption of global home trends and we are adopting international interior trends faster than previous times. As expected, Australian home owners are continuing to desire a kitchen that blends seamlessly with the rest of home.

Even if you don’t like following trends when it comes to designing kitchens, it is still great to know what styles, materials and colours are popular, what is sticking around and what designs are on the way out. Here are some emerging kitchen design trends we think will be popular this year.

Rustic Industrial Style
The industrial home décor style has grown in recent years as rustic accents create the perfect finish for a sleek, modern kitchen. A mixture of materials such as wood, brick and stainless steel or antique accessories with sleek modern cabinets creates the perfect industrial look in your kitchen.

Integrated Storage and Workstations
To increase the cohesion of cooking, the growth of integrating appliances with workstations is becoming increasingly popular. It is all about getting smart in smaller spaces – carefully considering the placement of designs for storage and efficiency to provide a functional space. High quality storage solutions with a preference for deep drawers are increasing to hide small appliances.

Monochrome Tones
Classic monochrome and pared-back colour schemes are set to be dominant as it makes it easy for you to reflect your own personal style with homeware accessories in your kitchen and refresh your décor whenever you like, integrating with the rest of your home.

Warm Grey Tones
The kitchen industry is predicting that grey may become the new white. Soft, warm grey undertones create a contrast to light and shadows and a liveable space.

Modern Marble
As marble continues to be a dominant trend in home décor, it continues to reflect into the kitchen to create a luxurious space. Homeowners are still loving paring marble with copper accents, and are going for engineered stone bench tops and splashbacks to create this look. However this trend may start to decline by the end of the year, or drop back to paring marble with raw, earthy textures.
