The way we use our kitchens is evolving, with a desire to create open-plan spaces designed for entertaining taking precedent. Maximizing natural light is (arguably) the key to designing a contemporary kitchen that fits this new-found requirement. After all, light has the capacity to make a space feel brighter and more spacious – particularly when paired with an all-white scheme – which will make it a more pleasant place to spend time.
However, when creating a kitchen there are lots of elements to think about. Is there enough storage? Where will you put the appliances? Have you chosen the correct lighting? Will you proudly display pots and pans, utensils and ovenware, or will you tidily store them all away? But more importantly, what sort of design suits you and your family? We spend 12% of our lives in the kitchen, beaten only by the bedroom, so it’s crucial the kitchen works both practically and aesthetically for our lives.
Think about all the steam, water and grease in the kitchen, and you’ll understand why installing a backsplash above the cook top and counters is a smart way to keep your kitchen clean. It’s much easier to clean grease off a backsplash made of tile, metal or plastic than paint or wallpaper.
One of the trends that will stand out in 2019. A feature for any kitchen brought in as a backsplash or a floor tile. Ceramics can add a retro or modern vibe to your kitchen. They are in for 2019, but we cannot guarantee how timeless this trend will be. With the improvements in digital printing technology, we should be seeing more advanced tile patterns in the next few years.
For your kitchen, evaluate the work areas and focus on providing each spot with the light it needs. Consider adding lighting directly above all the main work areas.
Our kitchens are where we cook, eat, entertain and socialize, so it’s important to create a kitchen design that ticks all these boxes – and more. For a busy family home a fitted kitchen is a bespoke solution that will offer fantastic functionality and streamline the space to make the most of every inch. If you’re on a tight budget consider revamping kitchen cabinets or investing in some new kitchen worktops to refresh the style and add years of service to the busiest room in the house.
