Build Your Dream Kitchen with These 6 Important Design Tips

Blog | October 12th, 2020

A kitchen is an integral part of your house, and it has significant influence on its value. For this reason, you should include design ideas and trends in it that will make it stand out. Over the years different materials, colours, layouts and other details have come and gone for the kitchens across this country. Here is how you can build your dream kitchen with these six important design tips.

Try Incorporating Engineered Quartz Countertops

Over recent years, it has become apparent how durable and attractive engineered quartz is for kitchen countertops. Engineered quartz is a man-made material that contains 90-percent to 94-percent pure quartz and up to 10 percent of a combination of resins and pigments. As it is non-porous, it is highly stain resistant without the need of a sealer since it does not absorb spills and moisture. Also, it is heat and scratch resistant, and less expensive and lower maintenance than marble or granite is for kitchen countertops. You can choose from a wide assortment of colour and pattern options to locate the right one for your kitchen décor.

Opt for an Open Kitchen Layout

Instead of installing a closed-in kitchen layout, turn to an open layout. A layout such as this lets the kitchen be part of the adjoining room or rooms. Various design options are available to create this type of kitchen. Open kitchens are light and airy in appearance and feel. They are ideal when you entertain a lot and wish not to be separated from your guests when food prep and cooking are necessary during a gathering.

Install the Latest in Lighting

Energy conservation is another trend in kitchens today and that includes installing the latest in lighting technology. LED lights come in fixtures and strings to help you illuminate the kitchen adequately whether you need to see for food prep or want mood lighting for a romantic dinner. Task lighting above the countertops and stove is a necessity. Overhead light fixtures are for navigational purposes, mood lighting and to see what you are eating at the table. Dimmers help you adjust the light levels easily.

Use Unique Splashbacks

Another design idea that makes your kitchen stand out to all who enter it is the use of unique splashbacks to protect your wall. Pressed tin, stainless steel, glass and natural stone are four examples of the materials that accomplish this in your kitchen.

Decorate Using Brass Joineries

Naturally, brass kitchen doors and drawers are often perceived as over-the-top. However, recent trends suggest that streamlining the silhouettes and dialling down the details would result into a stunning visual appeal. You can utilise a handle-less flat panels with a satin finish in order to produce an industrial, luxurious and modern look.

Mix and Match

Other options for a unique modern kitchen using a brass design are the mixing and matching of colours. For instance, pink may be a quirky colour choice, but when it’s paired with brass, this rosy shade feels sophisticated rather than retro. A pink splashback will achieve the same result.
