The Nine network’s Home Section recently ran an article on the five design trends going big in 2018 according to Houzz Australia.

The article feature Art of Kitchen’s Turramurra Contemporary Kitchen highlighting the trend for using mixed materials in the kitchen. In particular, Houzz reveals that they are seeing a trend for dual-material benchtops: combinations of marble or engineered quartz and timber.

We have also been noticing this trend with many homeowners looking to combine a number of materials in their kitchen. So we’ve thought we would pull together a small selection to highlight this kitchen design trend.
