Home Living : March 6th 2012
MB HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, March 6, 2012 3 HIDDEN TREASURES OUTSIDE THE SQUARE Make a statement. IN the last decade living spaces in homes have become much more open-plan. One area where this trend is making itself felt is in the kitchen. Today's kitchens are all about making a statement. They are also about making our lives much easier. Designs are more practical, with benches and cabinets com- bined in ways to make using them much easier. New innovations in auto- matic closing devices for large doors, lift-ups and drawers have produced some great new storage solutions. Storage space is now hidden away. Bench tops are no longer always straight, working around the shape of your kitchen and using space in the most con- venient way. NEW DESIGNS COOKING UP A STORM CLEVER KITCHENS MUSIC TO YOUR EARS Clever new kitchen trends are emerging. TODAY'S kitchens are all about cooking in style while still being able to enjoy your favourite TV shows and music. Designers from Sydney Kitchens say many emerging kitchen trends showcase clever ways to go about cooking. Timber Returns: There is a resurgence in timber. Dark tim- bers dominate kitchen finishing, juxtaposed with neutral tones of white, grey or pearlescent fini- shes. Timber is durable and gives great character to kitchens in many forms, from flooring to cabinets and benches. Bespoke design: Custom join- ery rules, with appliances and benchtops set at different heights for better ergonomics. Concealing appliances and benchtops behind sliding doors is also very popular. Cooking with visual enter- tainment: As kitchens become central living spaces, sleek tele- vision screens and sound systems are being integrated into them. Quality sound and iPod docks feature prominently. Natural stone: The trend for benchtops in luxury kitchens is natural stone: granite, marble.
