11. Combinations of patternsWith more education of homeowners and easier dissemination of design ideas worldwide, we’re seeing a welcome move towards pushing the boundaries of pattern, shape and colour combinations. What this means is homeowners are more open to combinations of patterns or textures that wouldn’t traditionally be considered – for example, here we have a geometric pattern on the island front, combined with a subway tile for the splashback.Kitchen islands showing off their best side

4. Add the unexpectedCookie-cutter kitchens are nice, but who wants nice when you can have a kitchen that wows? The tiles on the front of this island bench give this kitchen character galore, without deviating from the Hamptons style of this Sydney home. Imagine the same bench in black or white.
