The Australian commercial design and property market is in a boom period. With commercial property growth, a thriving national economy, and intense industry competition, demands for innovation, versatility and adaptability are reaching designers and specifiers. As such, the need to identify design solutions and products that are cost-effective, high performing and provide maximum design flexibility has never been more urgent.
This need extends into commercial and residential kitchens. Essential for comfort, amenity and convenience in a workplace or home, kitchens are spaces in which functionality and aesthetics are almost equally valued. Accordingly, the kitchen space also provides designers and specifiers with the opportunity to innovate when designing and specifying solutions that deliver an effective balance of style and substance. Informed by current design trends, designers, specifiers and consumers are prioritising contemporary style alongside functionality, performance and sustainability. Contemporary design trends are opting for sleek, streamlined designs with restrained colour palettes. Materials are being selected for their tactile and aesthetic qualities, in addition to their durability and performance qualities.
In spite of this, highly functional, reliable solutions and products are still preferred. For example, busy commercial workplaces or homes require clean, fresh drinking water accessible at all times by all types of users. Solutions that can deliver performance and functionality with a number of style and finish options to suit any kitchen aesthetic are preferred in today’s market.
