Kitchens are the highlight of homes - so much so that they can even sell a home. It is the most used room after all. Anyone renovating a kitchen knows that it can be quite an expensive project so it’s important to get it right before works begin.
We at Artform want to make the process as easy as possible for you so we put together our top tips for landing on the best design for your kitchen. These tips can apply to all kitchens regardless of budget or home.
Start with the layout
The kitchen layout is vital for achieving practicality as you want to make sure there is enough space to accommodate traffic, to make cooking easy, and to keep your kitchen safe. It’s best to position the stove, fridge, and sink within a triangle.
Create good storage space
Storage and accessibility are key when it comes to keeping your kitchen organised and clean. It can even make your space a pleasant breeze to cook in seeing it will be clutter free and you won’t have to search for your utensils, appliances, and food. You can opt for drawers, open shelving, cupboards, or a combination of all.
Choose your style
The style of your dream kitchen is probably the first thing on your mind, but you also want to make sure it blends well with the rest of the home. Once you have this style nailed down, you can make decisions on finer details to compliment your home and your taste.
Choose your benchtop and cabinet materials
Benchtop, door, and cabinet options are endless for all budgets. Whether you are after something inexpensive like laminate or something long lasting and strong like stone, base your decision around what works best for you and your needs.
Go big on your cooktop and sink
We think it’s wise to literally go big on your cooktop by purchasing one that is wide considering how much time you will spend using it. As for the sink, go big when it comes to materials as there are many cheap options that will just tarnish and need replacing in no time.
