Kitchen Trend

One of our recent special features focused on kitchen renovations! Specifically, we were looking into trends that aren’t just that. They’re here to stay. If you missed out on it, don’t worry. We’ve got a quick summary of the highlights right here.


But first, a quick rundown on the concept. The feature talked about kitchen renovation ideas and the companies that handle them in Perth. Kitchen renovations Perth are big business. While still not cheap, there are many ways now for people to modify their kitchens to get exactly what they want.


One trend that isn’t going to go away anytime soon is induction cooking.

Sleek, simple, and fast, induction cooking is looking to be a long-term presence. Induction burners utilise little heat and take up less space, so it’s easy to stay cool even in a cramped kitchen. Hardcore food aficionados might still want a separate range hood, but induction cookers are ideal for most.

Tech trends are also starting to creep in. From devices that can detect your habits online to Bluetooth-controlled coffee makers, new technologies are probably going to be a persistent element of new kitchens.

Ceiling treatments are also here to stay.

It took a few years, but according to our friends in the kitchen renovation business, people are now starting to realise there is untapped potential in the ceiling. Shallow coffers might add extra punch to a small space while having mouldings that complement the shape of the space below is also a nice touch.

Kitchen renovation experts also think LED lighting is here to stay, brighter than ever.

We also featured some integrated appliances.

“People are tired of their kitchen appliances sticking out,” one of our interviewees said. “These days, more and more folks are looking into getting them integrated, so they look seamless with everything else. Paneling and built-ins are going to stick around because they’re so practical.”

White kitchens are around, too. “They never really went away,” said one kitchen design specialist. People just didn’t notice how prominent white could get.

Renovating for small spaces is also a consistent thing these days.

More and more people are maximising tiny kitchen spaces, particularly in urban areas. The lack of room might be a problem, but as one specialist has noted, “There’s a lot you can do in that tiny space if you know what you’re doing.” From deep drawers to smaller appliances, tiny is here to stay.

Rounding it all off is deep drawers and practical sinks. The kitchen drawer and the sink are two standbys that are always present. The trend towards deeper drawers, for greater use of space, is probably not going away. Bigger, more practical sinks with a  focus on function are not going away.

The specialists we spoke to from companies that do kitchen renovations had a lot more to say, and they showcased some of their best examples. From beautiful white kitchens to layouts that packed a ton of utility in a couple of square feet of space, it was a great way to see what modern kitchens can look like.
