Planning a kitchen or bathroom reno? Choosing the right colours and finishes are among the most important decisions, which is why looking ahead to 2021, Cosentino has revealed five of the biggest looks predicted for cooking and bathing spaces in the coming year.
1. Striking veining
Forget bland surfaces; expect to see kitchen and bathroom surfaces with dramatic veining in 2021. It’s a look that’s guaranteed to add instant luxury and wow to a kitchen and bathroom – use it on a kitchen island or splashback, or to create a striking feature wall or vanity in the bathroom (just remember to keep the rest of the scheme simple so your eye-catching surface shines).
Silestone® by Cosentino is a uniquely beautiful surface that comes in a variety of formats and designs so you can use it in different ways in your kitchen and bathroom. Latest colours Silestone® Et Noir and Silestone® Et Bella feature impressive veining that mimics exotic marble so you can capture this sophisticated look in an easy-care material.
2. Nature-inspired colours
Colours drawn from nature will be the go-to for kitchens and bathrooms in 2021 – think rich charcoal, sage green, weathered grey and soft, sandy tones for a look that says low-key luxury. Pair natural tones with materials such as timber, brass and woven fibre to reinforce the earthy vibe. The warm gold and earthy grey of Silestone® new naturals, Et D’Or and Et Bella against a white background will create a softly layered look that’s grounded in nature.
3. Slim clean lines
Slim is in for kitchens and bathrooms in the year ahead. Expect to see slender benchtops, pared-back cabinetry, slim-profile vanities that look like bespoke furniture, and tapware with minimalist lines – all of which helps create a calm and uncluttered feel in your cooking and bathing spaces. Silestone® comes in a range of different thicknesses without sacrificing its trademark strength and durability, including one that’s just 1.2cm thick, so you create an on-trend look with benchtops and more.
4. Big islands
With more of us embracing open-plan kitchens, super-sized islands that incorporate everything from prep space and open shelving to a dining zone are on the rise. Make a statement by opting for an island with a waterfall edge – it’s a great way to showcase your stunning surface while neatly concealing the sides of cabinetry below, plus it makes cleaning a breeze.
5. Replicating Nature
While our love of classic marble as a kitchen and bathroom material shows little sign of slowing down, other natural materials are coming to the fore in 2021. With their translucent, layered appearance, onyx and quartzite are set to make waves in kitchens and bathrooms – and you can get the look in a quick-to-install, easy-care material with Silestone® new Polaris. With it’s fine white veins on a grey surface and translucent icy background, Polaris is a striking new colour that adds an air of sophistication to any kitchen or bathroom.
