2011 Kitchen Design Ideas

Kitchen designers, made., recently returned from Europe, armed with new, fantastic design-driven kitchen concepts for 2011 from bold stand-out colours, soft lines and feminine curves, to electronic innovations to help make kitchens work well on every level.

Here are their kitchen trend predictions for 2011:

- ORGANIC: Organic looking materials such as wood, stone and laminate will be popular in kitchens this year. New laminate benchtops in wood- and stone-like finishes reflect the organics trend. Utilising this hard wearing surface to showcase new trends is a clever interpretation of the shift back to organics.

- FUNCTION: Breakfast bars blend the kitchen and living areas.

- BRIGHT COLOURS: New colour options will be a standout trend allowing for bright, bold colour that will make the kitchen a focal point of the home.

- CURVES: Kitchens are set to shift away from hard square edges to more fluid, curved forms inspired by the 80s design aesthetic.
