From new designs to more traditional styles, there are so many different ideas to choose from, for your new kitchen, and the first thing you need to do is become familiarised with the various design choices on offer. Today, we’ll be giving you an overview of the main new kitchen design styles so you can find the option which best suits your lifestyle.
Classic Style Kitchens
A classic kitchen offers a timeless feel and fits perfectly with the aesthetic of most homes. Functionality is at the forefront of the design, and clean lines with a more subdued aesthetic create a warm, inviting feel. The neutral palette means it won’t date, and breakfast bars are a common, practical feature.
Modern Style Kitchens
For a sleek, sophisticated kitchen, you can’t go past the modern style. Designed to be low maintenance, there are plenty of innovative integrated storage solutions featured in the design which contribute to the uncluttered aesthetic. Clean lines, glossy cabinets and stainless steel accents are all common features.
Traditional Style Kitchens
The traditional kitchen creates a truly warm and welcoming space, becoming the true heart of the home. To create the right feel, think cabinetry with detailing, a large island bench to accommodate the whole family, and open shelving to display crockery. Intricate detailing is also often integrated into the space.
Hamptons Style Kitchens
The light, bright Hamptons style kitchen gives a relaxed, coastal feel while also offering a sense of sophistication. This style incorporates as much natural light as possible, and the light coloured palette further brightens up the space. Natural materials are integral to the look, and luxurious materials such as marble benchtops are also common features.
Industrial Style Kitchens
Think exposed beams, concrete accents, exposed brick and stainless steel. The popularity of the industrial style kitchen is on the rise, with its focus on raw beauty to recreate that warehouse feel. Stainless steel benchtops make a stunning feature, and darker colours, such as black or slate grey cabinets, are used to great effect.
Luxury Style Kitchens
You can’t go past the opulent feel of the luxury kitchen. It’s all about the wow factor with this design choice, which offers the ultimate in glamour. High quality features such as marble or stone benchtops are commonplace, and this style often suits larger spaces. Curved lines add a point of difference, and you can also add a sense of luxury with your lighting with feature chandeliers.
Minimalistic Style Kitchens
Minimalism has become a popular lifestyle choice in recent times and this is also reflected in the minimalist style kitchen. Designed to be as efficient as possible, this style is a clutter-free zone with handle-less cabinetry and integrated cabinets featuring in the design. Although white is the most popular colour for this style, you can still work your own personality into the design.
Alfresco and Outdoor Kitchens
When you live in Australia, the alfresco and outdoor kitchen is the perfect addition to your lifestyle. Natural material such as timber and stone complement the outdoor space, and servery windows connect the area to the indoors. Integrated kitchens, pizza ovens and bar fridges contribute to the functionality of the space.
