When designing a new kitchen or renovating an outdated kitchen, there are many things to be taken into consideration. As well as searching for a professional kitchen designer it is important to do your own research on how to improve from your previous kitchen and read about emerging trends in kitchen design. We have done the hard work for you and gathered some popular kitchen trends to give you some inspiration for revamping your kitchen.

Multifunctional Design
Kitchen designs and layouts continue to evolve each year, adapting to changing lifestyles with integrated solutions for technology and organization. Built-in charging stations, high-tech workstations and designated spaces for smart appliances and devices such as phones and tablets will provide convenience for families on-the-go.

Splashback Designs
Over the past couple of years we have started seeing more and more metallics, geometric shapes and custom designs in kitchen splashbacks. These designs will continue to become more popular in 2016, making your splashback become a stylish statement in your kitchen.

Hampton Style
A major industry trend in Australia we are seeing continue through to this year is Hampton style kitchen designs which take a modern approach to a traditional look. The popularity of Hampton kitchens is due to the combination of traditional elements and shaker style designs with modern materials.

Metal Materials
Bold metallics  won’t disappear any time soon, along with chrome and brass used for pendant lighting, accessories, handles and appliances. Warmer shades of metallic will take over cool metals like silver, adding a luxe, sophisticated feel to the modern kitchen.

Colour Palette
Neutral kitchen colours in warmer tones, greys and classic whites are trending, while bold, bright colours have been put aside. Soft colour palettes with muted blues, pale yellow and pastels combined with natural materials are modern kitchen trends for 2016.

Modern day kitchens embrace simple design and minimalistic décor. All white kitchens will feature clutter free bench tops, clean lines and improved storage space.
