8 Ideas to Get Your Kitchen Makeover Started!
Designing your kitchen makeover is incredibly exciting – and daunting! Since you’ll be using your kitchen every day, it’s important to make sure you get things just right. Here are 8 ideas to help get you inspired.
- Coffee Bar
- Pot & Utensil Racks
- Waterfall Benchtops
- Kitchen Island & Cooktop
- Smooth Glide Drawers
- Farmhouse Sink & High-Top Faucet
- Butler’s Pantry
1. Coffee Bar
Ah, coffee. This exquisite beverage that provides the human race with liquid courage to face each day. What better idea than to include a dedicated coffee bar in your new kitchen makeover?
Why rush back and forth around your kitchen for ingredients and equipment, when you could design a coffee and drinks station that has everything you need in one spot!
2. Pot & Utensil Racks
We’ve all done battle with overfilled and cluttered drawers, as we desperately try to find the right utensil, or squeeze in yet another large pot. Not for long! A kitchen makeover is the perfect time to make your life easier with fantastic ideas, such as pot and utensil racks.
A great place to install your handy new racks would be above or next to the stove top – convenient, accessible, not to mention easy to clean!
3. Waterfall Benchtops
If you love to showcase beautiful materials, and enjoy a modern style with clean lines – a waterfall benchtop could be just what you need. Unlike traditional benchtops that are limited to the horizontal counter surface, a waterfall benchtop flows down the vertical line of the bench until it meets the floor. This creates a smooth continuity of the benchtop, and can be used as a focal feature in your kitchen.
You can choose from a range of materials, including: wood, polished concrete, stainless steel, and natural stones of your choice.
4. Kitchen Island & Cooktop
If you love to entertain guests while you cook, a key idea for your kitchen makeover would be an island cooktop. Instead of being stuck in a separate room cooking, or standing at the stove with your back to guests, you can use your kitchen island and cooktop to prepare and cook food while having a great time with friends.
5. Smooth Glide Drawers
Does the sound of slamming drawers make you cringe every time you hear it? Are you fed up with drawers left half open by your family? Smooth glide drawers are an effortless solution to this problem – your new drawers can be designed to be both soft-closing and self-closing for your ease and convenience.
6. Farmhouse Sink & High Style Faucet
Let a tiny kitchen sink and awkward taps be a thing of the past by adding a farmhouse sink to your kitchen design. Large, deep, and easy-to-clean, a farmhouse sink and high style faucet will give you plenty of room for all kitchen activities – from filling large pots with water, to washing dishes.
7. Butler’s Pantry
A lack of kitchen storage space can be a major source of frustration – especially in this day and age of decluttering and organisation trends. That’s why the butler’s pantry is making such a comeback to modern kitchens!
A butler’s pantry is a great place to store kitchen appliances so they don’t clutter up your benchtops, and can even be used as a food prep station that can be conveniently closed off and hidden from guests.
