Kitchens represent one of the most popular renovations in the home. The kitchen is no longer just a place to prepare and cook food, kitchens are also a place where people eat meals, catch up with family, and casually entertain guests. Therefore, we now have a larger range of kitchen renovation ideas available, suitable for all tastes and kitchen functions.
Are you looking for a new modern kitchen? Consider these 5 kitchen design ideas:
Many kitchens are crowded and seem to lack a coherent kitchen design because lots of food items and consumables are stored there, oftentimes in full sight. On the one hand, people want a kitchen as in magazines, and on the other hand, buying a large amount of groceries is the usual practice for most families. If you want a solution that meets both these two needs, include a butler’s pantry in your kitchen renovation ideas and you won’t regret it. A pantry will allow you to store food, beverages, dishes, linens, provisions, and cleaning chemicals, thus eliminating the clutter from your kitchen.
Choosing the right kitchen appliance size
Avoid purchasing too many oversized kitchen appliances that take up bench space and instead opt for equipment that allows you to perform multiple operations, like both preparing a smoothie and juicing fruit, for instance. Make sure the appliances you choose are not bulky and their colour and style match your kitchen design.
Natural looking bench tops
There are several reasons why natural looking bench tops are the best option: they look classy and modern, they match with a variety of colours and styles, and they are more wear-resistant. To put it into different words, this type of bench top is more practical and more aesthetically pleasing, thus adding value to your property. Not to mention they never get out of fashion and continue to look good after years of use. Some of the most popular options are stone, metal, concrete, timber, and marble.
Storage is not just a matter of practicality; it also has a huge impact on your kitchen aspect. By choosing smart storage solutions such as a Butler’s Pantry (as mentioned previously) you will manage to keep the kitchen clean and organized instead of having it look cluttered and messy. There are so many different storage solutions such as dividing your drawers with adjustable inserts for utensils and pots & pans, custom pantry and an appliance garage (cabinet) to hide your appliances on the bench top.
Better kitchen functionality
Functionality is vital especially when you have a small kitchen and you cook often or you entertain your guests there. When planning a kitchen renovation, it is important to consider how to optimise and use the space. Island benches are a great way to add informal seating and also extra preparation space and storage to a kitchen. Another important aspect to consider for kitchen functionality is it needs to be well lit using layering and blending of different types of light.
