Invest in your Kitchen – 4 Design Directions for your new Kitchen

A custom kitchen design can elevate this important living space to a new level. Whether you’re renovating an existing home or building new and starting from scratch, Kitchens by Kathie is here to help you find the perfect design. We lead the way in bespoke kitchen installations from start to finish, beginning with the design consultation where we will go over your interior design inspiration.
Here are four design directions to consider for your dream kitchen.


Buying a new house or investment property opens up exciting opportunities to enhance the kitchen space and make it your own. Contemporary design options are the way to go if you’re looking for a luxuriously modern kitchen. Contemporary styles include colour blocks for a stylish contrast between dark and white, plus plenty of open space where less is definitely more. It’s all about streamlined surfaces and minimalist design where the gorgeous benchtops and cabinets complete the space.


If you need to do up your kitchen but want something classic and even a little more retro and rustic, then traditional design elements may be your best bet. Cabinets are usually the most prominent feature, defining the style and catching your attention as soon as you come into the room. Stone benchtops, formal light fixtures, accent tiles, and elegant trim are typically incorporated in traditional kitchens.


Modern colonial kitchens combine older trends like raised panel cabinets and custom wood molding with more contemporary colors and materials. If you live in a heritage home or even if you just want to pay tribute to decades gone by, a colonial kitchen could work for you. Timber elements, open shelves, and enhanced natural light make colonial kitchens the perfect blend of old and new.


When it comes to industrial kitchen design, think of converted warehouses and upscale restaurants. You can bring that same vibe into an industrial-style kitchen, complete with functional cabinetry, dramatic dark hues, and ample benchtop space for cooking, cleaning, and coming together with friends and family. Bold, statement lighting and tapware finishes are usually found in an industrial kitchen.
