Ever heard the old truism: you are where you eat? Well, we could not agree more, which is why we love a beautiful kitchen. The heart of every home, a well-designed kitchen is essential to making the most of your space and ensuring your house is your favourite place in the world—so time to eat up some design ideas and transform your cooking quarters.
Spacious, cosy, or somewhere inbetween, the kitchen is the hub of the home. It’s where the meals are cooked and conversation is made, fueling the body, mind and soul. Life is lived in the kitchen, so don’t you think it’s about time to breathe a little new life into yours? Whether you’re aiming to improve an existing kitchen or starting from scratch, combining creative ideas with functional design elements will make you want to spend the day snacking.
From rustic French country to California-inspired boho chic, there are as many kitchen styles as there are flavour palettes. And like every good meal, it’s important to start with your staples, meaning the arrangement of all your appliances. Once you are comfortable with the formal arrangement of your kitchen it’s time to introduce all the sugar and spice that makes this space so nice. Lighting is crucial to a livable kitchen, and since these spaces are often found in the back of the home where natural light is scarce, try experimenting with some illuminating solutions such as wall lighting or hidden spots under your cabinets.
While we may still think of kitchens as a utilitarian space, the modern kitchen is a place of gathering, and incorporates spaces for living, lounging and enjoying a meal. Though not every kitchen has the space to include these benefits, it’s still worthwhile to make this area as inviting as possible. Delicious design made easy.
