Effective kitchen design is important for the overall visual style and design, as well as the practical and functional aspects of a kitchen. But what are the key features of a well designed kitchen? And how can you achieve the right results?
What are the key features of a well designed kitchen?
A good kitchen is one that is practical, well designed, well planned and effective. So to make sure your kitchen provides all this, and more, you will need to consider:
- Storage- One of the most important parts of any kitchen design is the storage! From pots and pans, to cookbooks, and food, your kitchen needs to have enough storage to be a practical space. But unfortunately, this is often overlooked in favour of design style and choices. Don’t make this mistake!
- Strong surfaces- your worktops will take a beating throughout their lifetime, no matter how nicely you plan to look after them. So you need to choose a worktop that is durable, resistant and scratch-proof, if you want your kitchen to keep looking fresh and stunning.
- Lighting- the kitchen is first and foremost a practical space for cooking. You can’t prepare food in the dark. So you will need to think about lighting. Natural light is one of the best options, as well as specially designed task lighting, and adjustable wall lights. This can make your kitchen so much more useful. Especially during the evening.
- Layout- your kitchen needs to be a free flowing space that is easy to navigate and move around. For this reason, you should make sure the space between the sink, oven and fridge is open and not obstructed! As these three areas are the most used parts of any kitchen.
