Accented Accessories

We see 2019 as being the year where designers feel more confident in stretching the traditional colour and texture combinations which set the tone for how a home feels.

While stainless steel will always be an easy choice for tapware, handles and accessories, there’s new shades that'll be big contenders. Coppers and Rose Golds bring a softer, warmer ambiance to the kitchen and work well in the popular monochrome palette. As a luxe element, these finishes are proving to be more adaptable than shiny stainless steel and are often offered with optional matte finishes.

New porcelain surfaces are also sure to be popular as their wide range of uses and application in the home become embraced.

As sinks evolve we'll see them becoming an entire food preparation station with accessories to meet every need. Perhaps the sink will become the bustling centre of a kitchen?

The application of stone may well widen to vertical surfaces for splashbacks and as cabinet fronts for a fantastic graphic and aesthetic effect.

We don't think it'll stop at stone srufaces however as new technological surfaces are released to cater to the trends of rusted metal or marbled surfaces
