Home Living : March 6th 2012
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 6, 2012 MB 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 hid- den away. Bench tops are no longer always straight, working around the shape of your kitchen and utilising space in the most convenient 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 finish- ing, juxtaposed with neutral tones of white, grey or pearl- escent finishes. Timber is dur- able and gives great character to kitchens in many forms, from flooring to cabinets and benches. Bespoke design: Custom joinery 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 sys- tems are being integrated into them. Quality sound and iPod docks feature prominently. Natural stone: The continu- ing trend for benchtops in lux- ury kitchens is natural stone, such as granite and marble. n ,AMINATE n "AMBOO n &LOATING &LOORS n 3OLID 4IMBER &LOORING n 0RICES &ROM SQM n 7E /FFER )NSTALLATION n &REE 5NDERLAY !ND $ELIVERY :%,%+3 049 ,4$ #HARD 2OAD "ROOKVALE 0H \ &,//2).' ? 7)$% 2!.'% /& "%$2//- $).).' 2//- ,)6).' 2//- &52.)452% 6 Coates Place, Wetherill Park 9609 7533 or 9609 7933 Check the latest designs on www.goldenwoodfurniture.com.au Visit our Factory Open 7 Days (off Newton Road) Goldenwood Furniture 2234845i 15/3 Australian Timbers Custom Made Factory direct at wholesale prices Master Builders Association HIA Member Builders Lic: 93536C Visit our Showroom: 361 Pennant Hills Road Pennant Hills NSW 2120 CORNER OF GEORGE STREET Call us: For FREE measure and quote 1300 361 390 View our Website: www.pergolaland.com.au FREE QUOTES: PERGOLAS DECKS OPENING ROOFS CUSTOMISED dŚĞ d ĞĚ K ĚŽŽ ĚĚŝ ŽŶ ^ Ğ ŝĂůŝ HIA MASTER BUILDERS ASSOCIATION AUSTRAL IA NEW SOU TH WA LES L IBERTYPROCESS STABIL ITY FIRST INCORPORATED 1873 2159518 21/2 Website: www.davonne.com.au 165 Eastern Valley Way Middle Cove 1014B Pittwater Rd.
