KITCHENS – DECIDING ON THE BEST ONE FOR YOU – Kitchens are the heart of every home. It’s the one room where the outcome of what you do with it can bring a whole family together, even just for a little while. Whether you are an avid wannabe chef, or just a casual bung it in the oven and leave it to burn kind of cook; you still need a kitchen!
Coming in all shapes and sizes; You’ve got contemporary designs, vintage designs, space saving designs, square shapes, round shapes, built in appliances that are hidden from view. The opportunities to personalise to your specific taste are endless. What do you look for when you buy a kitchen?
Handmade kitchens are becoming more and more popular, simply because the individuality of each one. You may pick the same design as someone else, but it will always have that difference to it. They look vintage, like you are cooking in the 50’s. The beauty of a handmade kitchen is that the wood will be sourced especially for you. So it will have individual patterns and treads on it. This is a classic look. Stick in an old fashioned classic stove cooker and you’ve got a look that will forever be a timeless classic.
High Gloss Kitchens
High Gloss kitchens are a modern favourite. The increase in popularity of the “shiny look” at the moment seems to be ever growing with our handheld possessions now always seeming to have a gloss exterior. We have become more increasingly acceptable to this chic design. In either acrylic or a film wrap, they are easy to clean and look incredibly modern.
With so many different choices of kitchen available, it’s a difficult and sometimes tiresome act choosing a new one and making sure you love it, especially when you’re going to be spending a decent amount of cash on it.
My advice to you is; think about why you want a new kitchen. Do you want a new one because it looks dated? Then go for a modern high gloss look. If you want a new kitchen because you think yours in currently too simplistic; go for something a classic vintage design.
Kitchen designers are not only there to fit your kitchen, use them to their full ability. Ask them their opinion on what kitchen they think would best suit you. Tell them your needs in the kitchen, whether you’re short on space, what kind of features you require and they will show you designs that can accommodate all of that and your every need.
