Perfect Match: The Right Appliances For The Latest Kitchen Styles

April 14, 2022 – 4 min read

So you’ve been moodboarding like mad and have landed on your dream kitchen style for your reno or new build. Now it’s just a matter of finding the perfect kitchen appliances to make the space sing. Will your appliances be stainless steel? Cool white? Or perhaps you want to integrate your cooking and dishwasher appliances with your joinery for a seamless look? “When kitchen appliances are integrated into your design aesthetic or selected with the right finish or colour, the cabinetry feels resolved and the space is much more cohesive,” says interior designer Lauren Pearse of Rylo Co.

Read on for more expert advice in choosing exactly the right appliances for your kitchen style.

The Classic Hamptons Kitchen

“There’s something about the Hamptons style that is warm and homely, and incredibly practical,” says Lauren Pearse. “And the beauty of this look is that it’s very malleable; it works as contemporary or traditional – or anywhere in between"

“When people ask me for a Hamptons kitchen, I instantly know they want key features like white profile cabinetry, a symmetrical design with generous proportions, and classic nickel or chrome hardware, such as cup pull drawer handles and gooseneck taps.”

A statement freestanding oven in white or stainless steel can make a Hamptons kitchen, delivering a high-end look that plays beautifully against marble bench surfaces and pristine white cabinets. Complete the story with a Belfast drop-in sink with exposed front to blend with your island counter.

“Keep other appliances as inconspicuous as possible,” advises Lauren. “Consider an oven tower to keep everything together, or having your microwave built in properly with a trim kit.”

“There are some amazing brands like Smeg and Ilve that cater for the Hamptons aesthetic with freestanding or built-in appliances with a traditional white finish.”

The Modern Industrial Kitchen

“Moody and indulgent, the modern industrial kitchen packs a graphic punch with hits of blacks, greys, warm timbers, marble and concrete,” says Kinsman ambassador and interior designer Alisa Fraser.

“It’s a bold style that’s sure to turn heads – and the natural choice if you’re looking to create a cosy New York loft-inspired kitchen.”

Core to that ‘city that never sleeps’ groove are recessed sinks and black or gunmetal tapware, pitted against focal point black appliances.

“Black glass appliances are super on-trend right now,” says Alisa. “Think about integrating them into your cabinetry to help achieve that slick and seamless urban edge. Then add a touch of timber to break up banks of dark joinery with a dash of warmth.”

Create your dream kitchen with Fisher & Paykel’s Black Matte Glass suite of appliances. Featuring an elegant black glass finish that pairs perfectly with a recessed handle for a cohesive look, combine style and functionality for the ultimate kitchen solution.

Consider open shelving to display your favourite glassware, cookware or colourful small kitchen appliances, turning your kitchen into an art gallery.

The Coastal Cool Kitchen

Coastal-inspired kitchens are a no-brainer for the relaxed Australian lifestyle, says Kinsman’s Alisa Fraser. “They’re light, fresh, open and inviting – and just perfect for families looking to bring the natural beauty of the seaside into their home.”

And what works best when it comes to kitchen appliances? “Choose between the cool appeal of stainless steel to evoke a sunlit sea, or go light and bright with classic white,” advises Alisa.

“The Coastal style typically salutes simplicity, clean lines and a pared-back palette. For a modern and chic take, opt for shades of white and grey in your cabinetry’s colour palette.”

Love that luxury resort vibe? “Consider marble-inspired quartz countertops and splashbacks,” says Alisa.

Complete the look with deep, single-bowl white sinks with brass tapware, and capture coastal feels with textured contemporary facades, such as Kinsman’s new Sorrento door with deep fluting.
