The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s a room designed for living, and we tend to spend an awful lot of time here, whether this be eating, drinking, working, or entertaining.
Our kitchens speak volumes about our taste too, making them a great place to showcase your own unique style.
There’s no gold standard for kitchen design. Instead, the recipe for the perfect kitchen is all about creating a space that works for you and the way you live.
But there are a few interior design secrets that can make crafting your ideal kitchen a little easier. So if you want to design your dream kitchen – no problem! Let us introduce you to some kitchen design hacks, perfect for making your kitchen dreams a reality.
Season to Taste
When designing your kitchen, personal style really does matter.
There are a variety of exciting ways you can add a pop of personality to your kitchen. For example, why not try adding some decorative lighting features to your kitchen space? These are a splendid way to display your distinctive style.
If you fancy something a little different, consider installing some custom door handles and knobs. These are ideal for adding extra pizzazz to your kitchen. They’re often referred to as the ‘jewellery’ of your design, and make for a marvellously ornamental touch.
Colour It Fabulous
Colour is a great feature in any kitchen. And a bold colour scheme is one of the easiest ways to stamp a bit of personality on your kitchen, allowing you to inject a bit of excitement and vibrancy into your design.
But beware! Although bold tones might look great in showrooms and glossy magazines, you need to live with these colours. If a colour storm sounds a little too much for your tastes, you can play it safe by using bolder tones as accent colours instead.
As a top tip, a brightly coloured splashback – the bit between your counter and your cabinets -can be the perfect ingredient for stand-out kitchen design. ASplashback is one of the biggest features in your kitchen, so it’s important to make the most of it.
Make It Multi-functional
2015 is set to be the year of multi-functional kitchens. You can expect to see cabinets transforming into worktops, and storage units turned into seating, all over the place.
Designers are constantly inventing ever more innovative ways of maximising space and you can use this to your advantage.
So why not incorporate a few multi-functional pieces into your kitchen too? This will increase the versatility of the space, allowing you to adapt your kitchen to your ever-changing needs.
