A Kitchen Style to Suit Your Home

A kitchen is a sociable room for all the family to enjoy, the heart of the home. A place where memories are made, whether that be a big Sunday dinner with the family or the place where your child’s first drawing hangs proudly on the fridge.

When designing a kitchen, there are so many things to consider… Do you want an island? What type of cabinets do you want? What atmosphere do you wish to create? These are all things to consider before buying a new kitchen. To make your decision that little bit easier, we will be discussing the different types of kitchen layouts available today.


Kitchen Islands

Islands provide your kitchen with extra prep space (now, who doesn’t need that?), they also help to divide up an open space. If your kitchen is open plan, then an island is a great way to create that subtle divider between your living/dining area.

You even have the option to incorporate cool gadgets into your island to save space in your kitchen; fridges, pop up seasoning racks, pull up plugs and so much more. Why not add some seating to create a perfect breakfast bar?

Peninsula Kitchens

A peninsula kitchen is a perfect alternative for those who would like a kitchen island but don’t have space. A peninsula kitchen is just like an island but it is connected to the wall at one end.

There are many benefits to a peninsula kitchen; it provides more counter space and storage, creates the perfect space for socialising, and most importantly it is great for smaller kitchens. 


Traditional Kitchens

Traditional Kitchen designs have remained a top choice for Brits for many years, and they don’t look like they will be going out of fashion anytime soon. A traditional kitchen is seen to be a warm, relaxing, and welcoming environment for all family and friends. A traditional kitchen is great for all styles of homes, it’s versatility is a huge advantage when it comes to traditional kitchens.   


Modern & Contemporary Kitchens

If we had to sum up a modern and contemporary kitchen in 4 words, they would be; sleek, warm, homely, and stylish. Modern kitchens are catered to suit your every need, whether you wish for glossy cabinets, matte finishes, clever storage solutions… whatever they may be, we can help you.

 Kitchen Tips & Tricks

1.   The Size of Your Kitchen

When planning or designing your kitchen, the size of the kitchen should be taken very seriously. You don’t want to go buying a kitchen that is in fact too big for your home! Ensure that you look for furniture whose dimension is proportionate to the size of your kitchen. Apart from the size of your furniture, consider the storage option provided by different pieces and select the one that is suitable for your needs.

2.   Sense & Sensibility.

Try as much as possible to balance style and space when planning your kitchen layout. No matter the type of furniture you opt for, be it contemporary or wooden furniture, try to achieve a balance of style and space.

If you can consider the above information, you will certainly have a well-planned kitchen that is spacious, attractive and nice-looking thereby achieving your desire for a good-looking kitchen.
