Kitchen designs & how to choose the ideal for you
When choosing a perfect kitchen for you, the most effective way is choosing from one of the main designs, whether that is Traditional, modern, vintage or other. The next step is to decide your favourite choice of colour, lighting, and layout of the kitchen.
So here are some simple steps that can guide you:
Being the favourable to many, traditional kitchens have more of a unique and tasteful look to it. Usually 17-20th century style, these designs are mainly wooden, brick-layered, simplistic and are now incorporated into modern day kitchens giving a warm & cosy home atmosphere. This can suit different people particularly vintage lovers.
Covering a more larger, widespread area, dining kitchens are most commonly combined with both the dining and cooking area, perfect for bigger families and cooking enthusiasts.
There are many options to choose from the dining tables and the variation of style & design. Whether that is modern, traditional or contemporary.
A more present day, in vogue design, usually covered by steel or marble giving the kitchen a neat and glossy appearance. A combination of the right colour, lighting and composition, this style will be perfect for apartments or modern day households. Commonly a minimalist style with singular colours giving the kitchen a very elegant look.
Linear – A basic, parallel structure containing all the elements such as sink, stove, cabinets etc.
L-shaped – Usually the structure including the cabinets and accessories is attached to, or next to a wall, forming the L-shape. This makes the kitchen convenient and easily accessible and allows space for more people and/or a dining table.
U-shaped – Where the kitchen is also attached next to the walls in a U-shape forming and enclosed area where it makes it the main work place. This is perfect for cooks and separates the kitchen and the dining area.
Island kitchen – Placed in the middle of the kitchen area, this splits the kitchen and dining space. This is also a nice accessory to the kitchen and compliments the overall image and style of the kitchen.
