Mint KG also won the 2012 HIA Award in the Kitchen Renovation $25,000-40,000 category. This kitchen features a striking red splashback with contrasting white and dark woodgrain cabinetry.
The latest in kitchen design, colour and texture was seen in Milan this year. Minimal design elements remained popular, with light and dark contrasts. White is still the predominant colour with square edges and geometric forms prevalent. A new trend saw mixing and matching of benchtop heights.
Gloss finishes in solid colours remain strong, with a shift away from gloss woodgrains. Again white featured strongly, with browns and grey tones used to add warmth. Where woodgrains were popular was in the textured finishes, in a range of hues, from milky whites and natural tones, through to blackened oaks.
Mint KG won the HIA award for a renovated bathroom up to $25,000 for this bold design. More images of this installation are available in our Bathroom Gallery.
