Colour is Making a Comeback in Sydney Kitchen Renovations!
Take a Look at Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2020.

As we enter a new decade in 2020, we are seeing new colours and trends in Sydney kitchens. Look out for this year’s Pantone colour of the year – Classic Blue – which really makes a statement on kitchen doors and panels.


Although the white kitchen will never date, bolder colours are confidently making their way into modern home makeovers. Blues and greys are especially popular in coastal areas like Bondi in the Eastern Suburbs and Cronulla in the Sutherland Shire.


Two-tone kitchens are a good compromise for those who don’t want to commit to too much colour. They look very sophisticated when used to feature unique elements, such as kitchen islands or lift-up doors on overhead cupboards. A classic blue base is the perfect compliment to a white marble or granite benchtop resurfacing.


Polyurethane doors can be made in virtually any blue colour you can imagine to match your individual kitchen style. Stainless steel kitchen appliances will compliment a blue finish and maintain a contemporary edge for visual appeal.


Accessories such as handles and tapware can introduce some contrast and drama in trending matt black and mixed metals.


Now that Spring has sprung, we bring you the perfect recipe for entertaining. Our Salmon Maple Bites are not only healthy and delicious, but will look great on your marble or granite benchtops – one of the hallmarks of a Granite Transformations Sydney kitchen renovation.

1 cup natural maple syrup

Trim away any edges of the fillets that are very thin and cut the salmon into bite-sized cubes.

Combine the soy sauce and maple syrup in a medium glass bowl and add the salmon, making sure it is fully immersed in the marinade, and cover. You can do this in a sealed plastic bag. Refrigerate for 24 hours.

Cover a large baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 230 degrees celsius.

Put pepper and sesame seeds in separate shallow bowls. Dip the top surface of half the salmon pieces in sesame seeds, the other half in ground pepper.

Place salmon pieces on the baking tray, about 3cm apart, then cook in the preheated oven for 4 to 5 minutes.

Serve immediately, although they are perfectly good held at room temperature for an hour or so.

"A small kitchen made to look modern and open using high quality materials. We are very happy with the Granite Transformations service, approach, people and work quality. Most impressed with and highly valued the manager's planning and advice and the skills of the tradesman."
