They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and they’re not wrong! Whether you’re a single person, in a couple or have a growing family, you’ll spend a lot of time in your kitchen.
The colour scheme of your kitchen is always fun to choose. Whether that’s dark coloured cabinets, an undermount sink, or a gloss splashback, the palette will reflect your style. But it’s also important to think of the structural items. Incorporating items that provide you more space or increase the functionality make sure you don’t outgrow your kitchen.
We know there are so many different thing you can put in your kitchen. So we’ve listed the most popular items our clients have included in their new kitchen. We’ve also got a gallery to give you even more inspo, so hover over an image to find out more.
Every kitchen has a fridge recess. But if you have an extra wide fridge, you might need to put in a larger recess (or you’ll have to buy a smaller fridge). Waters taps behind your fridge are also becoming popular as many fridges allow you to pour cold water. And if you’re after more storage, consider putting a cupboard above your fridge.
Powerpoints don’t seem that important, until you have to constantly rearrange your appliances! So if you’re always using a coffee maker, blender, kettle and toaster, you might need multiple powerpoints. And if you like to charge your phone in the kitchen, consider an adapter that comes with a USB connection. Another idea is to put a powerpoint in your walk-in pantry that can connect to your microwave.
Absolutely! We use gas cooktops as our standard, but if you prefer electric or there’s no gas supply to your house, we can install an electric cooktop for you.
Sculleries and walk-in pantries are the most popular ways to increase the storage in your kitchen. You can also add overhead cupboards and shelving above the fridge. Adding in a draw underneath your over is another sneaky area to hide large pans and dishes.
