Increase the heat and stir in a dash of colour to taste, writes Tanya Ryan-Segger. THE kitchen might be the heart of a home but the current trend of all- white work surfaces and cabinets, handle-free storage and slick, stainless-steel appliances can feel a little soulless. However, making a statement in a kitchen while maintaining a clean, contemporary look is still achievable. There are many ways to add interest without going over the top. ''Australians tend to be more boring and muted in their kitchen choices than Europeans . . . but people are starting to mix materials to create a less clinical look,'' says general manager and designer for Leicht kitchens Adam Hinchliffe. Top it off Work surfaces are the most common way to use different materials in a kitchen space. Corian, marble and granite benchtops can be mixed with timber or steel veneers to add a textured finish to work surfaces and islands. Or, for a more natural look, hardwood is becoming popular. Stainless steel, traditionally used exclusively for appliances, is another material worth considering for benchtops, to give an edgy, industrial look. ''The current trend of using dark wood veneer in certain accents in a kitchen . . . can really work as it makes the space feel less sterile,'' says senior designer at Kitchen Connection Darryn Eynon. Even laminate, one of the most popular and cost-effective kitchen materials, offers home owners a chance to add a point of difference. It may not be as durable as stone but it comes in a wide range of colour choices -- for those willing to venture beyond white. A splash of difference For the less adventurous, injecting colour in small elements is a safe bet. Jonathon Turnbull, a designer at Narellan's Harrington Kitchens, says glass splashbacks are a great way to break with all-white or neutral kitchen colour schemes. ''You can choose any colour of glass splashback you like to add a bit of a statement and then stick to neutral benchtops and cabinetry,'' he says. Mirrored splashbacks are another growing trend, adding interest, depth and creating a feeling of space.
