Your kitchen is the heart of your home. Not just a space for cooking & eating, but family gatherings, mothers meetings and even running a small business. Never before has a space that was once considered utilitarian had to work so hard.
If you are about to embark on a kitchen renovation, here are 10 kitchen design ideas that you should consider incorporating into your design.
This is a perfect opportunity to display any vintage crockery you might have or to store spices, cookbooks etc.
2. Mirrored Backsplash
Antique, smoked, bronze……. Adding a mirrored surface finish is not only going to visually double the space and reflect light but it looks super stylish.
3. Waterfall Island
You don’t just have to stop with a statement countertop, if the budget allows take it all the way to the floor. Make your island a real talking point. This design detail can also be done in wood, concrete or quartz.
4. Pot Filler
These are such a popular feature in the USA and you can see why. Its super practical making meal preparation so much more efficient. They come in different styles and finishes so you can match it in with the rest of the brassware and hardware in the kitchen.
5. Wall Light
This can be positioned strategically over a sink to create additional task lighting or anywhere else that you want highlight such as shelving and artwork.
6. Kitchen Runner
A great way to add texture, pattern and warmth. This might not sound like the most practical idea, so consider using an outdoor rug, which is more hardwaring.
7. Go Tall on the Wall
In order to maximise your storage take your wall units to the ceiling. Not only does it stop the top of your cupboards being dust and grease traps, it also gives you the opportunity to be flexible with your storage ideas.
8. Mix Materials
For a contemporary look try combining different finishes. Door frontages are a great way to showcase this.
9. Two Tone
This design idea works really well when island base cabinets are a different colour the the rest of the kitchen, but as you can see here you can also make a unique statement by having lower cabinets in a different colour to the upper cabinets.
10. Glazed Doors
Display crockery, vases and treasured objects beautifully. Make sure to incorporate clever lighting solutions to really make your pieces stand out and this will also add gorgeous layer of ambient light.
