Home Living : July 26th 2011
10 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 26, 2011 HOMELIVING Shape of things to come THE latest trends in kitchen finishes involve clever designs and smarter presentations. According to the people at Kitcheners Kitchens, floating cabinets, variable benchtops, irregular kitchen shapes, concealed interiors, herb gardens, natural materials and organic shapes all have a place in contemporary kitchens. But homeowners who choose to make their ordinary kitchen a little more extraordinary also opt for cleverly considered touches such as smart lighting that engages the eye and flatters a particular feature. Lighting under benchtops, lighting within drawers, lighting to help locate kitchenware and lighting to draw the eye to a specific feature are now common. Another great finishing touch is flush taps that are out of sight, enhancing the streamlined look of the benchtop. The innovative flush taps slide down out of view and are ingeniously hidden, effectively sitting flush with the sink. Drawers without handles are similarly popular for their sleek appearance. Designers are always exploring new ways of incorporating the handles into the panels so even tall pantry doors and drawers have a neat, minimalistic appearance. Cooking up new colours THE kitchen has come a long way from what used to be just that extra area in the home where you cook. Today's kitchens are about stylish new inventions and hi-tech gadgets. Just as kitchens have come a long way, so has cookware. Today we hardly have any kitchenware in its original form. It's in vogue to buy a fire engine red toaster, a lime-coloured fridge, yellow microwave or candy orange oven and a rainbow selection of kitchen utensils. Fashion, style and elegance have entered kitchens. Perhaps the term white good is outdated in today's cosmopolitan world as manufacturers are producing appliances with a glossy, more colourful appeal. It's a trend that is likely to continue with even better designs and objects in new colour coordinates available for kitchens in future.
