Kitchen trends for 2016


Designers report the trend in 2016 is moving away from glass splashbacks, aluminum kicks and island benches with waterfall sides. Stainless steel appliances, sinks, tapware and handles are only going to date your kitchen.

Dark sinks and tapware are replacing stainless steel says Taylor. Introduce black tapware in a monochrome setting to instantly update your kitchen. Franke does a black sink made out of Tectonite​, which can endure high temperatures and repels liquids and dirt from its surface. Black or white ovens are also in.

Porcelain countertops will be popular in 2016 predicts Taylor. Otherwise known as sintered compact surfaces, porcelain countertops are made of a high-density ceramic that is extremely hard and resistant to scratches, stains and high temperatures. Slabs are very thin and can be installed over an existing benchtop. They come in a wide variety of colours too.
