2014 Trends in Kitchen Designs Sydney

2014 has seen an abundance of new and exciting trends in kitchen design in Sydney. No doubt, you are keen to apply some of them to your own kitchen project, so we have highlighted a few of our favorite kitchen trends below.

However, before you embark on any design research or decide to incorporate any current kitchen design trends into your project, you need to acknowledge the architectural style of your home and how your kitchen will relate to it. There is a wide range of building styles and kitchens in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, ranging from provincial and colonial homes to modern and contemporary homes. While there is nothing wrong with contrasting a modern kitchen within an older-styled home, a kitchen should be sympathetic to its surroundings and never look as though it doesn’t belong to the house it sits within.

The location of your home is a good indicator of what your housing style may be. Have a look at dominant housing style in your suburb and decide whether your home is of a similar style. Other indicators are your cornices, architraves and skirting boards. Once you have determined your kitchen style, you can then begin to think about incorporating some of the current trends into your kitchen design. Here are a few that we love:

The butler’s pantry has seen resurgence in popularity in recent years, transforming kitchens into stylish entertaining spaces without displaying the mess from food preparation.

The indoor BBQ is a great way to create a seamless connection between the kitchen and your outdoor entertaining areas. Covered alfresco areas provide all-weather dining areas that create a buffer-zone from the elements for your kitchen. Even if a storm is raging outside, your kitchen can remain open and airy without becoming drenched by wind-swept rain.

Indoor courtyards have also seen an increase in popularity. Side access areas and tight spaces along property boundaries are being transformed into lush, planted areas that bring light and natural elements into the home. Pairing your kitchen and dining areas with large glazed external doors and a green, planted areas will restore your connection to nature and create an invigorating dining experience.
