When updating kitchens many people are choosing to have it all! The emergence of a super kitchen is all the rage incorporating both traditional and functional features that open the kitchen to living space possibilities serving multiple purposes. Read below to discover our designer’s tips that will help you create the perfect super kitchen to suit your needs.

The kitchen is moving away from just a cooking space and is now used for entertaining, socialising, working and watching tv. Hence why a super kitchen is needed and wanted for its versatility supporting family, friends and a work lifestyle.

Build a Versatile Kitchen

When designing a kitchen always think of how it can stand the test of time. Versatility is the answer to be able to easily change this space. Our top tip is to utilise a neutral colour palette. Neutral hues are perfect for the kitchen as they can be swapped out easily and it allows focal points such as splashbacks, hardware, décor accessories and art to stand out more. When choosing a counter top, always go for a piece that is durable and versatile like stone. It is available in a variety of shades that easily blend with your neutral kitchen hues and will work well if you update your kitchen. It’s a piece made to last!

Functional Layout

Choose the correct layout for you to improve the flow of the kitchen workspace.

L and U shaped kitchens are the most popular choices and for good reason. L shapes allows for an open flowing area with no traffic and can fit virtually anywhere. U shapes have more bench space, can operate with multiple cooks and most importantly incorporates a kitchen island. Before changing your layout observe your kitchen to discover why you want to your layout and identify what needs are not being met to install a kitchen that works for you. The key when planning is having ‘the triangle’ as designers say. This is the perfect formula to arrange your sink, stove and fridge at an easily accessible distance to increase productivity.

Open living

The concept of open space living allows you to bring the outside in. Blending these boundaries creates a central hub for people to gather together and a versatile area to entertain in. Open your kitchen with a glass window splashback making the kitchen seem like there is no barrier and will allow natural light to filter through providing a lighter and brighter feel in your home.

Put the Super into your kitchen

Add simple luxuries for ultimate comfort and design like a television, coffee station, wine fridge, in built workstations and clever storage to maximise your space. A super kitchen makes your space radiate with functionality and beauty.
