Be inspired by the natural colours, materials, and textures of the seaside. Coastal kitchens are typically bright and airy which naturally gives a relaxed Far North Queensland vibe.
Focus on details such as yacht inspired finishes, hints of timber/ bamboo, coloured appliances, or a splashback with iridescent tiles. These really help to bring the mood together. Having big open windows allows breeze and light to enter easily to get everyone in relax mode.
Never underestimate the power of a white kitchen. Keeping a blank canvas allows plenty of room to play with colours. It is easy enough to change items such as chairs, lights and décor as trends change.
Using features such as exposed brick walls, stainless steel, wood surfaces, miss matching bar stools, concrete benchtops and filament bulbs. These create an industrial style kitchen that is easy to maintain. One of the greatest perks of having this style is knowing that it only gets better as it ages.
Sleek modern style kitchens are the answer for old and tired cluttered kitchens. Modern style kitchens are all about clean lines, cool contrasting tones and give off a minimalist appearance.
Many of these kitchens have stone or concrete benchtops, flat panel and frameless cabinets and drawers. If handles are an option, they are streamlined to play up the strong lines of the kitchen.
A country style kitchen brings a warm, welcoming feel to your home.
Whether you are aiming for traditional country or modern rustic, consider pairing timber or stone surfaces with classic cabinets. Adding some colour to your cabinets, tiles, decor or appliances will give your home real style and personality!
Dark & Matte
Dark matte cabinetry mixed with a pop of gloss creates a stylish place the whole family will love. You can keep it all black or decide on another dark colour. Try using navy blue, a deep green, or a dark grey as an alternative feature.
Adding contrast by incorporating pieces of light wood or marble benchtops. Using light coloured splashback, walls or floors will break up the dark colours if you feel the need to.
Another way to bring the kitchen over to the dark side is dark flooring!
