What are you seeing as the Kitchen Design Trends in 2016?
Interestingly, in a few days time, Nadine flies over to Europe, so she’ll be able to really update us on European trades and Italy tend to head the world on design, but some interesting trends are is that people are tending to go now in Europe for thinner bench tops, which really is a new trend, and I don’t think Australia have seen that side yet. In the year 2015, black and white kitchens were very much the trend in Europe, but I believe they’re getting away from that now and tending towards warmer colors. Those are possibly two of the main trends that we are aware of that have taken place in Europe at the moment.
And what are the trends you see in Australia?
Everyone seems to aspire to getting a stone top, and most people here, most of our kitchen sales involve a 14 mil thick stone top. I would say to you that probably 80-90% of our kitchen sales involve stone tops, and I’d say to you that that’s probably the main trend here. Another aspiration of a lot of people is for a Two Pack kitchen. That is the most expensive of our kitchens. I think that those are the main two trends here in Australia.

Can you provide some advise on Cabinet Design?
There’s so many modern uses of awkward spaces that really do get into those awkward spaces really well, and we’re able to show most of those in the showroom. A lot will depend on what style of kitchen the customer has, but the kitchen industry really is evolving and is coming up with some really efficient uses of space that just make it a lot easier for the customer to access what they need to. One example, immediate example of that is just the use of drawers instead of cupboards. The aspiration really is for to try and have as many drawers as you possibly can in the kitchen and even to have the internal drawers in the pantry, so you can pull those out and access everything that you want. That’s really about it.
