Multi-tasking is something we are all very good at these days, and this is just as true for interior and kitchen design. Getting more use out of your space has become a key focus by embracing the ‘less is more’ ideal and using minimalism to maximise efficiency. Seamless solutions allow better use of both small and large spaces with cleverly designed, multi-functional furniture and pieces that fold away, pull out, or expand to suit your space and needs. A multi-purpose, compact kitchen could see the preparation countertop double as a working space during the day, which is then pulled out and expanded as a dining area for guests at night.
A surprising shift from open-plan living towards broken-plan spaces showcases a return to distinct, demarcated living areas. Unlike the stuffy corridors of the past, think of spaces that are well considered and still evoke a feeling of openness. Each zone is perfectly set up for its distinct purpose, be it cooking, entertaining, or relaxing. This is seen through the considered placement of divider screens, freestanding furniture, well-designed cabinetry, and display features.
A classic trend that has stood the test of time, the kitchen remains the heart of the home, only now with an even more practical purpose. It has transformed into a flexible, multi-use space where we not only cook but also work, relax, entertain, and take care of our families.
Forward-looking designs are leaning into this, embracing aspects such as the use of colour and lighting that allow the kitchen to adapt to different times of the day and alter the mood to suit its current purpose. With the kitchen holding its own as a key living area, the centre of the home will continue to integrate into family life and freedom of expression.
Bold & bright colours
Neutrals are taking a backseat as the trends embrace the life-giving nature of colour. Bright and bold colours are being used to express a fun sense of personality. With unexpected tonal variations paired with contrasting materials like wood and stone, the kitchen is full of opportunities to play with colour — from appliances to cabinets, and, of course, countertops.
Smart kitchens are only getting smarter! From innovative tech to clever hacks, it’s all about working smarter, not harder, in the kitchen. Clever use of lighting—both conventional and smart-enabled—can change the mood of your space with the simple touch of a button. Basic yet effective storage and division tools in cabinetry make the kitchen’s functionality a pleasure. Incorporating smart technology into your appliances, big and small, will change the way you cook, shop, and live at home.
