Your Kitchen – the heart of your home
Nurturing, nourishing, conversation and creativity are all characteristics of the space to house your essential culinary equipment, grocery items & recipes for inspiration. A kitchen is so much more than just a place to cook, clean, eat & repeat.
When deciding on your kitchen, there are two phases to consider. First, the house design stage & secondly, the fitout of the kitchen.
At the house design stage, you have the opportunity to locate your kitchen space (or spaces), where it best suites your family & your lifestyle. Streamlining the flow of the creations out onto an alfresco, the style of living with the kitchen, aspect of home, views, available natural light & ventilation are just a few considerations to consider.
Window location & style, as well as cabinetry choices such as open shelving, base cabinets, drawers, overhead cupboard space. The decisions can be overwhelming & extensive, and that is before you select colours. However if you bring the focus back to how you like to live, live in general, with family, friends or solo, and how you like to use the kitchen space or what you miss about the kitchen you currently have, these are all good thoughts to start the process to dilute what you would need & like in your kitchen.
By considering how the kitchen enhances your lifestyle, will make the next step easier in designing your kitchen fitout. A fitout includes everything that will be installed in the designated space to evolve into your kitchen. This includes your sink & drainer, style of benchtop material, appliances such as cooktop, oven, rangehood, dishwasher, microwave & small appliances to be stored.
