Create the Dream Kitchen
Looking for a kitchen transformation with just a few simple tricks? Well after all, it is a well know fact the kitchen is the heart of the home – so why not create a practical yet chic and elegant utopia of your own? Let’s be honest, it is easier said than done but don’t fear – this blog will hopefully lead you on your path to your dream kitchen.
Tip 1: Enhance storage
When it comes to a kitchen every space is valuable! Remember that. For instance when you maximise storage it not only makes it easier to whip up delicious meals without clutter but also contributes to a clean, organised and aesthetically pleasing kitchen – that’s the dream.
Here are a few examples of how to do this, for instance, have you considered storing seasonal items out of your way? Over head cabinets are a good place for that! Have you considered downsizing appliances to decrease clutter? There are many techniques to increase organisation and decrease clutter – another example, is using utensil organisers and baskets to clear away unnecessary items out of eye view. The options are endless!
Tip 2: Make sure everything flows
Despite having all these satisfying organisation techniques, it is pointless if it lacks practicality – for instance there must be a flow, so when you cook it is as simple as possible. One example, is having pots and pans near the hob or, having chopping boards near a clear open space. Not only will this increase the ease of cooking, it will decrease the chance of unwanted clutter.
Tip 3: Install an island
If you are fortunate enough to have space for an island – don’t hold back! islands are full of potential, not only are they great for a cooking space, they are also great for entertaining and even better if used as an extra seating area too!
Tip 4: Light colours and an accent piece
Using lighter neutral colours will not only help your kitchen to appear airy and clean, but, will also can create an illusion of more space. Using dark colours, can often make a kitchen appear smaller and cluttered but some people want that look – there are so many things that can be done with colour! Having lighter colours also means you can play around with accent pieces or splashes of colour – this can be a pop of colour in simple things like tea towels etc or you could even use patterned tiles for fancy walls and floors!
Tip 5: Lighting
Our final tip is to install ambient lighting. This will relate a more intimate and aesthetically pleasing look especially with chic lamp shades that can add drama. What’s more, elegant lighting can also help make your cooking photography amazing (go on admit it, we all take pics of our food right?) well if that’s not you, rest assured once your space is looking amazing, you’ll want to take snaps of those gourmet meals, prepped in your stunning kitchen space!
