Kitchen design inspiration
As the kitchen is the heart of the home it takes careful consideration to get the design just right. Here are some tips to give you a helping hand.
Opt for an easy life
Cooking, cleaning, tidying. Everything has to be easy in the kitchen. So, go for a practical, pleasant design. Make sure that all your cabinets and appliances are within easy reach, that there are no obstacles in your way and that you don't have to walk back and forth thirty-six times a day.
Aside from a convenient overall layout, opt for solutions that make for an easy life. A sturdy sink for instance, one that is easy to clean and resistant to impact and scratches, or a tap with a spray head which gives you more flexibility in the kitchen, or - if you are left-handed -, a drip rack to the left of your sink.
A room to live in
Remember that the kitchen is a place you'll be spending a lot of time in. For cooking, chatting, meeting people, discussing, laughing and crying. All the more reason why your kitchen should reflect the way you and your family live. Add a personal touch with flowers, a fruit basket, a lovely lamp... and go for colours that really suit the atmosphere and energy in your home.
