Trendy Ways to Spice up your Kitchen
Forget matchy-matchy, kitchens are becoming more blended as we enter a new decade with clever storage and statement accessories!
Storage is key. We house so many things from ingredients and utensils, to oils and pantry items.
In order to enhance our well-being de-cluttering is necessary, therefore cleverly hidden storage solutions will help to keep your surfaces tidy and organised in the kitchen.
We have all progressed in to design spaces where functionality can definitely meet style.
One the kitchen has been identified as the centre of your home, the spatial arrangement and connecting it with the rest of the social areas means that the design is essential to complete the final composition.

So, contemporary kitchen design ideas and materials must combine to bring together a stylish aesthetic with durable and functional finishes with considered material choices.

Use contrasting colours which may even clash, but use them as your accent either as your backsplash or through appliances purchased.
Ditch the usual suspects and make a graphic statement by embellishing your counter area with a stylised tessellation. From chevrons, to triangles, to just about any shape you could ever think of, the limitation is your creativity. For the cherry on top, you can pair it with an accent colour of your choice, setting the tone for the rest of the kitchen.
