New Kitchen Design Ideas to Spice Up Your Home
When it comes to renovating your kitchen, there is no shortage of options to choose from. Whether you’re going for a modern, clean, classic or rustic look, we’re bringing you some new kitchen design ideas that will spice up your home, and get you excited about the prospect of entertaining your family and friends with your brand new kitchen renovation!
Kitchen Islands & Breakfast Bars
Arguably one of the most popular new kitchen design ideas of today is to have a kitchen island or breakfast bar.
Kitchen islands are a popular design choice as they open up your space, can be used as a bench top for additional seating, provide you with extra countertop space for preparing food, and all together look great!
In terms of design there is so much variation with kitchen islands. From dark wood and marble countertops to an all white modern look, kitchen islands offer the best of both worlds; functionality and aesthetically appealing.
Walk In Pantry
Just like having the perfect walk in closet, having a spacious walk in pantry is what many of us who spend a lot of time in the kitchen dream of!
When it comes to your pantry there are many ways to get creative. From the colour and type of flooring to your shelf design, and the way in which you choose to organise it, pantry’s are a very functional storage space that should definitely be considered when it comes to your new kitchen.
For larger kitchen areas, more people are choosing to create a separate beverage or drink area as a part of their new kitchen design.
Include a mini bar fridge or wine shelf, and have your specialty coffee maker or electric kettle on display. If you entertain a lot, having a seperate beverage area to where you prepare and cook food is also very practical as you can direct guest traffic accordingly. There’s nothing worse than a crowded kitchen!
Rather than have all of your kitchen ware, glass ware, herbs and spices, or special dinnerware hidden away in closed cabinets, many people are opting for open display shelving for some of their commonly used kitchen items.
When done properly, open display shelving has a certain aesthetic appeal that can make your kitchen feel very warm and inviting, with a rustic or traditional appeal, whilst still providing that modern kitchen design approach. Not to mention, it is very practical when it comes to accessing your commonly used kitchen items!
Some people will even organise their display shelves according to colour, buying specifically designed plate and glassware, or placing their spices in matching rustic jars that match the aesthetic of their kitchen design.
