The kitchen is where we frequently make and eat food, and food is something that we certainly rely on a lot – so it should rarely surprise that this part of a house is often considered one of the most personal rooms for the house’s owners. Despite this, however, you could struggle to devise good ideas of how to design your own kitchen. We at kitchen equipment provider Home Treats can help by putting forward ideas for kitchen designs that we are especially fond of.
Honey, I shrunk the kitchen this time
If the number of people living in your residence is relatively small, you shouldn’t be afraid to scale down the kitchen to suit. No, don’t worry, you won’t have to miss out on anything you need; in fact, your experience of using your kitchen could be hugely improved, as you could more easily find everything that you need and realise that the kitchen is easier to keep clean and tidy.
Like to feel close to the water?
If you are the kind of person who likes spending more time in the shower than they have to, or finds it wonderfully relaxing to take the occasional dip in the local pool, you could benefit from a kitchen with a strong nautical theme. For inspiration for how you could effectively combine wood, concrete and metal to stunning effect, check out this maritime-styled kitchen designed by Anik Pearson.
You could bring the outdoors more into your kitchen…
… or bring your kitchen more into the outdoors – whichever way you would prefer to phrase it. The basic principle is the same: your kitchen could have large doors or windows that could be opened to allow more sights, sounds and smells of the great outdoors into the space. It can provide for wonderfully soothing kitchen experiences during the summer, especially if you live in a highly rural area.
Fancy something that’s half kitchen, half art gallery?
Who says that you should use your kitchen solely for making and eating food? If you are a particularly arty person with lots of beautiful art that you would love to regularly admire while engaging in kitchen chores, you could set up your kitchen in such a way that there is plenty of clean space in which to safely hang your art. Go down this route and the room could soon start looking like a piece of art in itself.
