Timber, new veneers and marble are transforming kitchens, in line with a growing trend towards natural and raw finishes, texture and pattern.

Designers say the trend is a response to homeowners wanting to place their own individual stamp on the most technologically advanced room in the house.

Smeg, a brand noted for its rich design heritage and leading-edge technology, has long remained ahead of the design curve by collaborating with world-leading architects and designers to offer a choice of distinctive designs in different colours and finishes. When a design gives consideration to how the appliances can enhance your style, the results can be spectacular.

Timber veneers applied to vertical surfaces bring warmth and durability to the kitchen. This creates the perfect canvas for showcasing Smeg's perfectly proportioned Linear built-in oven, as seen here in the kitchen of award-winning designer Greg Natale.

Marble, an enduring, classic finish, has made a huge comeback in recent times. Using such a luxurious surface means it's essential to choose appliances with a strong design ethos, such as Smeg's Linear built-in oven. The oven's slim, refined lines make it a good match in any of the available finishes silver mirror, black or white glass.

Avant-garde Linear cooktops are another show stopper. These will soon be available in black and white enamel, as well as stainless steel.

A Smeg induction cooktop also sits well in a marble kitchen. Its subtle looks and gently bevelled edge complement the cool, smooth surface of a marble benchtop.

And with all these appliances, it is not just about the looks. Smeg appliances are all designed for form and function. High performance is a given, no matter whether you are entertaining on a large scale or cooking for the family.
