05 Dec Setting your 2019 Kitchen Goals, whatever they may be!
Whilst there’s only a weeks left of 2018 and Christmas still to enjoy, it’s never too early to start thinking about how your kitchen is going to look next year and consider how you’re going to create a room that’s perfect for years to come.
Whether you have a small, bijou kitchen that’s in need of some much-needed space optimisation or have a wide and open kitchen that you’d love to add a whole range of different gadgets into, now’s the ideal time to start planning for your 2019 upgrade by plotting out some all-important kitchen goals.
With this in mind we’ve looked at 5 key areas of your kitchen to ensure you know exactly what to consider when you’re planning next year’s transformation and make sure that you discover the ideal kitchen for your lifestyle and interior requirements.
1. Review what’s wrong with your existing setup
Before you begin considering what storage to include in your new kitchen, what colour scheme to go for and which appliances you’d love to integrate, it’s important to stop and take stock of your existing space to decide where you need to make improvements.
Whether the existing drawer setup is too hard to use, your current oven is in need of an upgrade, or your worktops look like something out of the 60’s, this stage is essential to help you plan for the right improvements.
2. Utilizing the space available
Just like any other area of the home, the space within kitchens across the country can vary drastically, so it’s important to make sure you plan around every inch of your kitchen to create a layout that will deliver an open and easy to use environment. This may involve:
Measuring the dimensions of your kitchen and planning where everything is likely to fit in.
Analysing the walkthrough of your kitchen to ensure no 2 areas clash or create a busy room.
Planning where appliances and worktops are going to go to ensure your kitchen creates an aesthetically unique and welcoming environment.
3. Choosing your Kitchen Style
Many of the industries German Kitchen designers create a wealth of different cabinet designs, textures, colours and finishes to choose from. Because of this it’s essential that you assess the whole of the market to guarantee you create a fit-out that’s wonderfully in-line with your kitchen aspirations.
There are constantly new and improved styles coming out every season so it’s important to shop around and test different systems and layouts to ensure you find the perfect solution for your needs.
4. Pick the perfect colours
Giving a kitchen a new colour scheme is a quick and simple way to give your much-loved and heavily used space a touch of vibrancy. Whilst there are many colour combinations to opt for to create different feelings, emotions and energies, if you opt for a repaint and are stuck on what colour scheme to go with, blue remains one of the most popular options.
However, if you’re looking for something a little brighter, bolder and in-line with the latest trends, rich colours such as copper and gold are key to creating a modern and welcoming setting. In addition to this, if you’re short of space then you may want to try painting the ceiling one or two shades lighter than the walls, whereas if you’re trying to make a larger room feel cosier then try to use darker and more comforting shades.
5. Selecting appliances and gadgets that will improve your lifestyle
We’ve all been there, had the best of intentions to start the new year with a wealth of resolutions but failed to stick to them past the end of January. Although this may not change with the introduction of a new kitchen, ensuring your kitchen has the right appliances and gadgets to enhance your lifestyle can’t help can it?
From remote controlled lighting and built-in boiling water taps that make your morning routine that little more straightforward to the finest smart fridges, and integrated ovens that enhance every cooking experience, it’s extremely important that you look at every area of your life to work in gadgets and appliances that will enrich your everyday experience.
