So, it is finally time for you to renovate your kitchen and create an amazing space for you to enjoy.
Below are some great tips and tricks for you to allow your kitchen renovation process to be as easy and pain free as possible.
Using a Kitchen Designer
At Kitchens Perth a kitchen designer works very closely with you to achieve the best kitchen design for your particular situation. It is important to work in with a kitchen designer as their kitchen knowledge will be invaluable in allowing the kitchen design process to evolve in a seamless process. Sometimes you can be a little over whelmed with so many complicated choices when designing your new kitchen.
At Kitchens Perth our kitchen designer is aware of the latest drawer technology, product availability, on trend materials and space saving applications which are suited best to each unique kitchen space. The luxury of viewing your kitchen within a rendered 3D image is particularly useful as you can see your kitchen completed prior to manufacture. Changes can then be made if required preventing any costly mistakes which may have been made otherwise. The utmost importance is that your kitchen has balance and symmetry as well as being functional in accordance to your lifestyle.
Scrap Book Ideas
Kitchens Perth advise their clients to gather together a wish list of must haves for the new kitchen space. This can be either via items listed down that need to be included or simply a book of inspirational pictures depicting bench tops, cupboard choices, appliances selections and splashback choices. When listing down your wish list it is important to list the most important change which needs to happen first then continue to list down items via importance. Kitchen Perth can use your list or inspirational photos as a starting point when designing your new kitchen space. We are finding a move back towards thinner bench tops of 20mm stone.
The chunkier 40mm stone tops are not as popular and not forecasted to be on trend. Island bench lighting is still very popular with oversized single dramatic singular pendants being used or pendants of different size or shape are being clustered together to create that “pop”. An interesting idea is to integrate the dining table as a part of your kitchen enabling interaction with family and friends whilst cooking. Table shapes can be an oversized L or a more banquet styled elongated addition to the kitchen shape. Of course, the amount of space within your kitchen determines whether this is viable proposition.
