The heart of the home is the kitchen. For decades, the kitchen has brought families together with fun activities such as cooking, planning, entertaining and eating. That’s why it’s essential to set up your kitchen for success, with a well thought out layout and proper decor.
Here are three stylish trends in kitchen and dining that you will want to adopt:
The use of marble for luxury has existed for centuries, and will always be a classic colour palette and texture for the kitchen. It’s prized for its timeless beauty on backsplashes, countertops and accessories.
A stunning marble backsplash will add an element of wow factor to your kitchen with its bold texture and tone. Metal accessories and decor are a great way to compliment this material.
White marble is not the only type. Black marble countertops are especially luxurious when paired with silver and gold metallics. A marble countertop is also an elegant element in a rustic kitchen.
2) Copper and gold
Kitchenware and accessories with metallic and jewel tones such as copper, bronze, ruby reds, golds and sapphires add chic and sophistication to your kitchen.
They work perfectly well with rustic style kitchens, pairing jewel tone kitchenware and accessories with warm browns, black, wood and natural tones. For example, you may want to add a copper pendant light and rose gold kitchen accessories to complement a wooden countertop.
Gold, rose gold, bronze and copper also bring balance when paired with neutral and white surfaces such as backsplashes and countertops.
Choose soft lighting with your jewel tone kitchenware accessories to create a cozy ambiance.

3) Dark matte finishes and accessories
Glossy kitchens always steal the limelight for their luxury and glam. But matte finishes can give a more natural and modern look to the space. They also provide great practicality as marks and surface scratches are less noticeable.
Many interior designers have recently been opting for more moody and darker colour palettes on countertops, cabinets and backsplashes. A way to add more depth to feature tiles and stone walls is to add black or dark appliances as accent pieces for your kitchen.
A dark matte textured countertop that is less reflective not only complements a minimalist kitchen, but provides modern clean lines and a high-quality look to the space.
It's time to glam up your kitchen with these three trends!
