How To Create The Perfect Kitchen Design Your kitchen can be one of the most creative rooms in your home. For a stylish and slick looking design, there are several trends for 2020 that you can choose from. Read our blog to find the best kitchen designs and how to create a design you love for your home.
Heads Apart offer kitchen design, installation and renovation. Regardless of your current kitchen style, we can completely transform the interior of your home or make alterations to the existing spec. Choosing Colour Scheme & Materials
The first step in your kitchen design is finding a colour scheme and materials that you love, which fit into your home. Whether you are looking to install a brand new kitchen or just renovate your existing one, the colour scheme you choose can make or break the final design of your kitchen. There are several combinations of materials that you can choose in the design process:
Glass Granite Laminate Marble Porcelain Tile Quartz Soapstone Stainless Steel Stone Tile Wooden
With so many materials to choose from, you can choose a kitchen tailored to you, and bespoke to your home. Stone finishes create a stylish and smooth look, whether you go for marble, granite or another option. A wooden interior means a more country or traditional style, whilst remaining stylish.
Your choice of material can potentially limit the colour schemes available, however, many of the products will come with different colour options so this can still be styled to your home. You would want to make sure the colour scheme you select for worktops fits perfectly with the materials for flooring, walling, cupboards and cabinets.
Kitchen Cupboards & Cabinets
Kitchen cupboards, cabinets and units are a key feature in
kitchen design. Once your colour scheme and materials are chosen, you may wish to limit your kitchen to just two or three colours around the room. This means that coordinating kitchen cupboards to your worktops or flooring, will give it a sense of you and will fit well with the other features in the room and around your home.
Similarly, with kitchen cupboards you again have several choices for the materials and finish. You will want your cupboards to be pleasing to the eye but not so prominent that they stick out like a sore thumb. Handles for your cupboards can be non-existent or made to be a feature, with cupboards opening from the top, bottom or sideways. Either way, we can help to advise on what may look great in the finished product.
Consider Your Layout
The layout of your kitchen is very important and you must consider where you want each kitchen feature to be installed. When choosing your design and colour scheme, there are a number of stunning combinations that can be created which can almost become a feature in themselves. But, you don't forget features such as your oven, sink and stove, as well as appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, toasters and microwaves - these finishing touches all add to the final look; whether integrated or not.
These appliances and features should be just as stylish to keep up the aesthetic of your kitchen without having to completely redesign your kitchen around this. By considering the layout of your kitchen, we fit every feature in, still maintaining the desired style for your home.
Flooring, Walling & Decoration
Although tiled floors and painted walls are often the most obvious choice, there are other options for a bespoke interior design. Both wooden and marble floors can create a fantastic style and appearance. Marble and tiling can also be on walls, so when planning your design, consider the colour and style you want and how to fit your kitchen together with materials and colours that complement each other.
What we would say, is to choose one or two feature points rather than making all aspects bold. Whether this is using decorative laminate for your worktop designs or having splashbacks around your sink and stove, these little additions can really perfect the final kitchen design.
