From cooking to entertaining and everything in-between, with so many roles to play it’s easy to understand why so many refer to the kitchen as the heart of the home, and as such put a large amount of their renovating budget towards this space.
While you may already have your eye on a particular design for your kitchen renovation, it’s important to know exactly how much space you have to play with, in addition to any structural considerations you need to keep in mind, before finalising your design.
So, to assist you in creating the perfect kitchen for your lifestyle, we’ll take you through the five essential elements for designing a kitchen that lasts the test of time:
While a neutral colour palette is traditionally timeless, complementing this with a statement colour is just as appealing. From soft pastels to bold navys and greens, take your colour cue from your decorating style and consider whether you’d like to make a feature out of it, or subtly incorporate it within your space. If you decide to incorporate dark colours within your space, be mindful to balance these with an abundance of natural light and textures.
Popular ways to introduce a statement colour within your kitchen design include wall tiles, cabinetry, tapware, light fittings and décor.
Creating a statement within your kitchen design, large islands easily facilitate the smooth flow of meal preparation, just as much as they do dining, entertaining and all the things in-between. Three design elements to incorporate within your kitchen island include:
+ clever storage – maximising the use of the space
+ overhang – to accommodate seating
+ structural feature – waterfall end, curved stone edges or unique angles and timber legs are all fantastic ways to incorporate character and style
