Enhanced design and technology are breathing new life into innovative kitchen trends and projects. Take a look at some of the cutting-edge innovations that are getting our kitchen designers excited!

It is well known that kitchen designs and trends transition over time. Some stay for decades, while others fade out almost as quickly as they arrived. Regardless of their lifespan, every innovative kitchen trend has provided an advancement or potential improvement for the householder, builder, or designer. More recently, the advancements in kitchen designs and technology have made it simpler for designers and renovators to create a space that is ‘uniquely you’. And as our kitchens continue to evolve into multifunctional living spaces, the demand for innovative design solutions has never been greater.

Whatever your lifestyle or household demographic, innovative kitchen trends continue to provide the ability to combine equal amounts of style and function. With fixtures and fittings that are able to be tailored for your every need, there is becoming less and less need to compromise style for function, or vice versa. From technological advancements to sleek design aesthetics and seamless living spaces, designing today’s modern kitchens allow you to create a space that works for you, and looks incredible too.

In this article, we will delve into three kitchen innovations that are revolutionising the way we experience this vital blend of creating your ultimate kitchen and living space. Read on to learn more about the amazing kitchen innovation trends have our team (and our clients!) at Harrington Kitchens excited.

#1. Navcore Cabinetry Products

Navcore was developed by New Age Veneers and is a game-changer when it comes to kitchen cabinetry. The high-density board boasts enhanced strength and resistance to both warping and moisture. This composition makes it an ideal selection for kitchen environments where durability and longevity are essential.

Navcore also has a stunning range of finishes, which include realistic textures that mimic genuine timber veneer, and luxurious solid colours. With varying thicknesses, it can also be used for features such as floating shelves. This means that homeowners can achieve their desired aesthetic while enjoying the reliability of a robust material.

There are a range of fantastic benefits for kitchen installers too. Firstly, Navcore is an ultra-lightweight material which makes it easier to handle. It also comes in larger sheet sizes, which is aesthetically beneficial as it can produce less joins on longer cabinets.

Navcore is an innovative kitchen trend with a material that offers a perfect harmony of durability and visual appeal.

At Harrington Kitchens, we’ve already had the pleasure of using this amazing product throughout various spaces in a recent project in Cobbitty.

We are excited about exploring the options and potential for future projects too.

Visit our Narellan or Bowral showrooms and speak to our designers to find out more about using the wonderful range of Navcore products in your new kitchen.

New Life for Old Favourites

Innovation isn’t just about creating new things, it’s also about finding ways to improve existing products. There’s no better example of this at the moment than when it comes to stone benchtop products. In addition to the ever-popular natural stone and terrazzo materials, we’re also seeing an increase in the popularity and supply of porcelain and ceramic based materials for kitchen benchtops and splashbacks.

Exciting innovation by various international companies means that these types of products are now much more accessible and suitable for use than they have been in the past. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing the potential continue to be uncovered for these kinds of materials so that more and more people can enjoy them in their homes.
