You’re a professional, confident and outgoing individual in the rest of your life from making quick decisions, juggling a full workload and enjoying the most of your free time with art exhibitions, elegant dinners and prosecco evenings so why shouldn’t your kitchen, where most of your social entertaining takes place, be exactly the same?
In With The New
Forget traditional wooden tables and chairs, cute but chintzy florals, cozy, cottage Welsh dressers and the comfortable yet basic style of the farmhouse house kitchen. Like interior design itself, domestic kitchens are soaring straight into the future with gleaming trendy appliances like smoothie makers and avocado peelers, space saving and multifunctional furniture, and tables or bookcases with built in wireless charging stations for smartphones and iPads.
Customers can choose from an opulent range of unique, star spangled worktops and space inspired splashbacks. Not to mention High quality stainless steel sinks as well as colourful feature walls, or eco-friendly materials like cork and grass. Finishing touches include stunning black and white tiled floors. These days the heart of the home has become a 100 % sophisticated, high tech and ready for business environment thanks to a multitude of timing saving devices and all without a hint of a floral apron, clotted cream scone or bird printed tea towel in sight.
Who Are You?
Don’t let your designer dictate to you what scheme, or decor theme they think would suit you best. Look towards your own personality, hobbies, and interests for inspiration on how to create that incredible room. Kitchens are far more than just places to cook or eat in, they reflect your culinary tastes, ambitions and overall enjoyment of life. Who doesn’t look forward to pouring themselves a glass of chilled white wine on a Friday night? Opening up the cupboards and making a creamy mushroom risotto to enjoy while watching TV or listening to music. If you love travel why not create a space inspired by your own adventures? Hang maps of your favorite places on the walls, display recipe books that feature unusual, exotic dishes and have a feature wall full of photos from all your holidays. Collect authentic Italian, or Spanish dishware and serve your homemade noodle dishes in Japanese ramen bowls!
Cooking Up A Storm
What do you actually use your kitchen for the most? Baking? Patisserie work? The odd roast? This is your space, so it’s important that it matches your lifestyle. For instance, if you do a lot of cooking, you’ll want a large double fan assisted oven as well as a good industrial stove, but if you’re more a casual baker then you’ll need a decent amount of storage space in which to keep all of your cake tins. Decide if you want a splashback or not, as they’re useful for protecting your walls from stains and even if it’s a smaller kitchen you’ll need an extractor fan to remove cooking smells. By pinpointing what you use the most in your kitchen you can then organize appliances, and white goods properly which helps to cut out dead space and maximizes your prep area, or storage space on your shiny worktop counters.
