Okay, so there’s nothing new about the use of timber in the kitchen, but the shape and form we’re seeing it in is getting more creative. “Having spent so much time indoors in recent times, we’re looking for as many ways as possible to bring a little of the outdoors in, and to celebrate the natural world throughout the interiors of our home,” says Fiona Gould, interior stylist and trends expert.
This kitchen trend may be embraced by many styles, whether the rest of your home is Scandinavian-inspired, coastal or even industrial. You can bring a touch of timber into the heart of your home through benchtops, floating shelves and a careful selection of kitchen appliances. For big impact, opt for timber-look cabinetry and invest in integrated kitchen appliances such as fridges and dishwashers. Not only will this introduce a whole lot of that wooden warmth to your space, but by hiding away the big machines, you’ll create a sense of zen, too.
