Bold Glass Backsplashes

Bold backsplashes have always been a great way to make a statement in the kitchen and glass ones are really making a big appearance in 2020. They are a great way to spice up your kitchen by introducing a splash of colour or different texture. Glass splashbacks are durable, easy to clean, and create a sense of elegance.

Natural textures and colours

We’re really seeing this one skyrocket in 2020- natural textures and colours. Think cosy and warm interior with an apple pie baking in the oven. Natural lighting and a neutral colour palette make this work, and it is easy to make your new kitchen the heart and soul of your home. To modernise this look add whites to your cabinets or benchtops as this will accent the neutral tones, creating a warm and welcoming feel. Neutral colours never go out of style, use them to keep your kitchen trendy for a long time, and always be your favourite room in the house!

Curved Benchtops

Curved benchtops are a new, slightly strange trend, but they’re a beautiful display of practicality and workmanship. Done right, curved benchtops create more space and have a luxurious feel- the centerpiece of the room. Curves add contrast to a kitchen dominated by straight lines and this builds awesome and interesting visual impact. Use curved benchtops as a feature, or get really creative and use them to create smooth transitions towards other rooms and really get the most from your kitchen space.
