With so many new trends emerging in kitchen design it can be quit daunting and confusing selecting the best appliances and fixtures to include in your renovation.
From ovens, microwaves, wine fridges and rangehoods, the team at the Style Studio by Summit share their expert tips and advice based on the current trends.
A custom designed rangehood can dramatically change the look of a new kitchen and take it to a whole new level.
The team at Summit have begun specialising in custom designed rangehoods, which can feature shelving, and can be installed above an island bench or on a back wall.
The integrated rangehood is installed inside the custom-designed box which is made from medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and highly finished in two-pack paint.
The best thing about custom designed rangehoods is the ability to build them to suit a variety of kitchen themes, from Hamptons to Scandi.
Integrating appliances to create a seamless kitchen space is still a popular trend, and with so many Laminex cabinetry colours available concealing your fridge and dishwasher is easy.
Integrating other kitchen must-haves, such as a spice rack, which can be pulled out on a turn dial is a popular ‘must-have’.
A wine fridge, integrated within kitchen cabinetry, is a trendy addition, to a kitchen and gives it an instant class.
Having more than one oven in a kitchen remains a popular choice.
However, keep in mind that double ovens can be a more expensive choice and for the cost of two, you are actually getting a lot less oven space and it can complicate cabinetry heights and symmetry.
The better option is to have two 600mm ovens stacked together.
Having two ovens side-by-side not only visually looks great but gets the height correct, enabling the option of adding a microwave, coffee machine or steam oven above the pair of ovens to create a seamless look.
For another point of difference to your kitchen, consider installing a wine rack with a strip of lighting to add a real statement.
