Heart of the home

Cool Concrete 

Concrete may seem cold and industrial but in fact, it can be warm, soft and organic. This material is versatile and looks great in a benchtop, floor or wall tile, but it can also be brought into your kitchen in the form of furniture and serveware. Shades of concrete grey in cabinetry look chic and remarkably timeless and you can extend this colour scheme to curtains, lights, and seating. Our Tauwhare plan makes great use of concrete surfaces.

French Country

Heritage details and pretty pastels are the key to this kitchen style. Tongue-and-groove walls, Shaker-style cabinets and traditional hardware will help create the look of a country kitchen. Finish with vintage cake stands, handmade pottery and lots of flowers.

Beachy & Beautiful

Creating a relaxed, coastal vibe is all about connecting with nature. Match natural colours, textures and patterns with white surfaces and use black accents on hardware for a little bit of contrast. Bring picked flowers, leaves, driftwood, shells and other flotsam inside to complete the look. This Papamoa home has a coastal chic vibe going on.

Black Out

Moody black kitchens are trending in a big way, and not just in cabinetry. Black cutlery, crockery and accessories look modern in any kitchen, and even black chairs, tables and bar stools are a great option. Take a walk on the dark side and try a few black objects first before going all-in on this look. Our Nelson Showhome proves you don't have to be in the dark, to go black in the kitchen.
