There are many unique ways to design the perfect kitchen. Today’s market allows for endless possibilities and with the help of a kitchen designer you can create the perfect kitchen for you. First, think about what you do in your kitchen. It may sound odd but everyone uses their kitchen differently – ask yourself: Who is using the kitchen? Who cooks most in the kitchen? Is it social, functional or both?
Kitchen designs should be based on your family and entertaining make up: kids/no kids/entertaining groups or just you and a few others? Depending on what you do in your kitchen and how, your kitchen design should be functional for you.
Be sure of your design style. A kitchen design should not only satisfy all your functional needs but also reflect your personality. Think about the colours you want (and the ones you don’t) and the type of detailing you’d like to see in the design.
Storage is one of the most important aspects of a kitchen. Without sufficient storage in a kitchen design, the kitchen can actually impair the functionality. It’s important when working with a kitchen designer to really think about how much and what kind of storage you need. Do you need deep drawers for pots and pans, a pantry, roll out drawers for Tupperware, a spice rack or a wine rack? Kitchen designers can make the most out of your available space to make your every day routine as easy as possible!
The kitchen is used for different daily tasks so lighting is very important. If your kitchen design consists of a large island where all your meal prep and daily tasks occur, you may want to consider pendant lighting directly over the kitchen island. If you have an eat-in kitchen, you may want softer lighting over this area. As for the perimeter of the kitchen, pot lights; flush mount or semi-flush mount lighting, under and over cabinetry lighting are great options.
Last but not least, be sure to add accessories to your kitchen design to make it feel like it belongs to you.
