A kitchen is first and foremost a space in which to prepare food – and it needs to be optimised in such a way as to make that as easy as possible. That said, it’s also a room in which you’re likely to spend a lot of time, so keeping it stylish as well as functional will make it a nicer place to be.
Don’t let interior design fall by the wayside just because it’s a functional room – you can still colour coordinate your accessories and find solutions which make your home ergonomic as well as well designed.
Many kitchen units are now available with false doors to keep unsightly but necessary kitchen appliances like microwaves, dishwashers and washing machines out of sight. Keeping your appliances behind closed doors allows you to enjoy clean lines and uncluttered surfaces for a modern look that’s fuss-free; perfect for the 21st century home.
Modern and minimalist might not be your cup of tea – and that’s fine – but it’s a good idea to pick a style and run with it when you’re designing a kitchen. If a more rustic, shabby chic look is up your street, look for big wooden farmhouse dining tables and practical but pretty range cookers to keep the theme going.
Keeping your kitchen clean will help it to feel nice, so make life easy for yourself with fixtures and fittings that are easy to clean. As beautiful as a wooden floor may be, tiles could be easier to keep clean as they’re less likely to stain, for instance.
Likewise, solid stone counters like granite or marble won’t stain or chip and can easily be wiped down with disinfectant. Look at your options for kitchen splashbacks – there are plenty of options which combine stylish interior design with a glass finish that’s easy to wipe down, keeping your kitchen spotless.
