If you are finally ready to take the leap and build your first home but are not sure where to start, it can be a seriously confusing and stressful exercise. If you are looking for more natural options for your home, the battle can be twice as hard. We believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home and with that in mind, we have a few trends to share for ideas for your new kitchen bench-top in your new dream home.
As well as being a luxurious and unique looking finish, it also has an earthy look earthy and matches well with other natural materials in your home. You also have the freedom to form your bench-top into any shape you like. If you prefer an alternative to natural, rustic concrete colour, tints can be added to achieve the colour that matches your kitchen finishes best.
Stainless steel is insanely durable and is so easily matched with everything from the most outrageous of colour schemes to your classic neutral palettes. Just a wash and polish when you notice imperfections and this finish will always look as good as new. It’s also the one thing that will never need to change if you decide to overhaul your kitchen down the track as it is so timeless and versatile.
The next trend is pure ingenuity.
For those of us who love the timeless elegance of granite but are not so fond of the price, soapstone could well be the answer you were searching for. Soapstone emanates the luxurious feel of polished stone, and it’s equally as strong as marble or granite. You can sand out any imperfections easily and choose not only colour variances but also glossy or matte finish depending on your taste.
Try this If the luxurious stone or industrial concrete are not your taste.
Maybe you like something greener and a little more unique, we have something for you too! We are big fans of sustainable design elements when building a home, and eco-friendly glass benchtops are a long-lasting and timeless option. Recycled glass benchtops come in a large range of colours to suit your kitchen theme, and they are super simple to look after.
Our final in-vogue idea is the classic and natural wooden bench-top.
With the range of wood types available in Australia, you’d be crazy to pass this trend by. With a good quality wood like Tasmanian Oak or Red Jarrah, not only will your bench-top last forever but with such a huge range of colours and grains available, you’ll be able to match to your rustic taste with ease. The best part is that wooden surfaces gain character over time but if you happen to dislike any imperfections in your bench-tops, never fear, it’s simple to sand back and re-seal.
We hope that these ideas have given you some inspiration in the quest to build your dream home in a fashionable and Eco-conscious way!
