New Year New Kitchen?
January 22nd, 2019
Are you amongst the hundreds of millions making plans this new year for a Kitchen revival?
With Christmas out of the way what better way to start the year than with a home interior face lift. And, with the Kitchen being the heart of the home, we all know that this is the place to start.
But is it really the heart of the home?
Gone are the days of the formal dining room with a serving hatch through from the kitchen! Open plan living has been hugely popular for decades and will continue to be so for many households for the pure fact that the kitchen tends to be the social hub for the majority.
We congregate here for breakfast, we prepare drinks for one another, we cook together, we talk, we eat together.
Open plan living can emphasise on the social aspect of your kitchen enabling you to entertain with ease whilst preparing meals. For those with a tendency to hold Dinner parties this is a particularly great option.
Young families can also benefit by enabling cook mum or dad to keep an eagle eye on the children whilst they prepare meals.
For others, when we are ready to sit down and relax of an evening, we like to shut the door on the chaotic kitchen so that we can fully unwind.
Whatever layout you choose for your kitchen, this is the starting point to creating your dream space. One that works for you.
When talking with your designer, help them to understand how the mechanics of your life work and they can use this when preparing their concept. Any good designer will ask you leading questions to help him or her to understand your day to day needs as well as your creative desires.
