Are you sick of looking at those peeling laminate benchtops or the heavy dark cabinetry in your kitchen? Or perhaps the layout is all wrong. If you’re dreaming of a light-filled kitchen, dining and living area instead of your closed-in 70s-style kitchen, perhaps it’s time to consider doing something about it! We love renovating, and kitchens is one of our specialties.
But it can be hard to know where to start. How do you decide what to do? Firstly, decide on the look you want for your kitchen. Trends for this year has been heavily focused on a mixture of textures and colours, such as timber, greys and matte finishes.
Marble benchtops and splashbacks are also becoming increasingly popular, as seen in the kitchens on this season of The Block. Paying some attention to your hardware can also make a big difference to the overall look of your kitchen so make sure you have an idea of what look you are going for before choosing door handles etc.
While the look of a kitchen may change over time, one thing that is always going to be paramount to any kitchen is storage. You need lots of it. And when it comes to storage options, there are many to choose from; drawers, shelves, wall cabinets, base cabinets etc. A mixture of open and closed storage is on trend, allowing you to add some greenery in the form of herbs and edible flowers.
