When designing a new kitchen or renovating an outdated kitchen, there are many elements to be taken into consideration. Nothing is more important than choosing the right kitchen design and layout that suits you and your lifestyle but there are some elements that you may not have thought of because they are things you can’t see. To truly make your kitchen the heart of your home, ensure you consider these kitchen elements in your kitchen renovation planning.

A kitchen that feels spacious with lots of workspace and minimal clutter will inspire you to cook more and feels welcoming to guests. There are a few design tricks to make your kitchen breathable such as an open layout, glossy surfaces, a light colour palette and open shelving. Unclutter your bench tops, shelving, cabinets and pantry for a lighter and free-flowing kitchen.

Air Flow
Ventilation is an important part of cooking, creating a safe cooking environment but is may not be one of the first things you think about. Ensure you have a quality range hood exhaust installed to stop splattering of food and improve the air quality, especially if you have a small kitchen. Large, open windows can do wonders to keep your kitchen feeling fresh and inviting.

Does your kitchen feel dark and heavy? Any additional light in your kitchen will make it appear larger and improve the atmosphere in your cooking space. Natural light will not only save you on electricity, it will make your kitchen feel open, airy and welcoming, great for increasing your property’s value. If you don’t have many windows and are lacking in natural light, try adding a mirror to bounce around the light or install under-cabinet lighting, lamps or pendant lights to create the perfect ambiance.

Lack of simplicity in your kitchen may often make cooking feel like a chore. To create a modern minimalist space, strip your kitchen of anything unnecessary to free up space in your working environment and create a streamlined look. Ensure the heart of your home is organized for a kitchen with minimal clutter and maximum efficiency.

If you’re an avid cook, creating a kitchen you love will inspire you to experiment with recipes and socialise with friends and family. Design a kitchen that makes you feel inspired with lots of personal touches to make cooking more enjoyable and motivate you to spend more time eating at home.
