Australian kitchen trends: The latest high-tech oven and fridge

From the latest high-tech ovens and fridges to hit the market to beautiful stone-look porcelain panels, building the kitchen of your dreams has never been easier.

Artedomus MAXIMUM porcelain panels: An expansion to an existing range, the latest MAXIMUM porcelain panels range from complex and intriguing burgundy veining, to warm, golden tones and earthy textures. Comprised of four new designs (Viola, Damascato, Roccia and Luna), these panels recreate the beauty of natural stone in a highly durable, low-maintenance finish that can be used on walls, floors and surfaces making them ideal for the kitchen.

AEG 90cm SensePro PyroLuxe Multifunction 16 Oven in matte black: With built-in assisted cooking (the oven comes with a food sensor that you can insert into your food ensuring maximum precision), you can control how you would prefer food cooked and this oven will do the rest. Self-cleaning, this oven also allows you to scroll through menus, select a food category and the oven will generate the correct settings for the dish. Amazing!

Essastone: A new range of European-inspired engineered stone has joined the Essastone collection and it celebrates classic looks through intricate veining and luxe finishes. The new range includes Warm Taupe (a light taupe with a speckled appearance), Vena Grigia (a creamy white enhanced by grey veining), and Light Concrete which is suggestive of classic concrete with its restrained texture and off-white background. Like all Essastone products, the new finishes recreate the appearance of natural stone while remaining cost-effective and durable.

LG Fridge: With home entertaining on the rise, LG has just launched its latest French Door refrigerator range and it features the LG Craft ice maker which creates slow-melting ice balls ideal for cocktails. Water flows straight from the fridge door and we love the LG InstaView™ Door-in-Door® feature which, with two quick knocks, illuminates the fridge’s sleek glass panel allowing you to see inside.

Methven: With the kitchen considered the heart of a home, it’s no surprise that renovating or building a new kitchen will reach record highs in 2022 according to the HIA Kitchen & Bathroom Report 2020-21. The kitchen mixer is a key component to any fabulous kitchen and, from space saving to pull-out goose neck iterations, there’s one for every space at Methven.

ARKE: In a market dominated by plastic gadgets, Swedish design company Aarke has just launched a sparkling water maker in stainless steel with glass bottle. Called the Carbonator Pro, the stylish kitchen accessory is practical too – you only need one hand to use it.

Scarabeo Ceramiche UP sink: Available locally from Paco Jaanson, the UP sink features eye-catching raised edges and was inspired by ancient ceramic design. It’s available in a smooth matte black or glossy white finish and features antibacterial properties too.
