Apart from our master bedrooms, if there is one space that is used with enthusiasm, it’s the kitchen. From the time you sleepily wander in for your first cup (jug?) of coffee, to the time you absentmindedly browse the fridge for a midnight snack, we can probably say with confidence that it is also one of your “highest traffic areas” of your home. Having this area designed according to your wishes is a luxury; and if you are given this luxury, you should take proper advantage of the opportunity…
Breakfast bars instead of dining table
Gone are the days where you had the space or the need for a large dining table. After all, neither do families have as many children as they used to; and families don’t eat their meals together as much as they used to either. If you don’t need the extra space for your culinary adventures, consider scrapping that table off the kitchen permanently. It’s only eating up your precious work space. Instead, consider installing a breakfast bar for those occasional meals in the kitchen. Remember that along with saving you space, breakfast areas can also make your kitchen look chic and stylish.
Pull out storage
If you decided to go with our breakfast bar plan, and even added in Scandinavian bar stools Sydney for extra effect; you are well on your way to giving your kitchen a modern twist. But what do you do about the things that got displayed once you removed the table from the kitchen? If you are looking for storage options, consider installing vertical storage shelving. This could be even installed into the existing cupboard under the sink. It pays to remember that this is a great idea for bedroom storage options as well.
Glass shelves and glass walls
Apart from your pull out shelve option, there are many other ways to ensure that the billion things you have and need in the kitchen is well organized. If your kitchen is on the smaller side, then installing glass or see-through shelves is a great option for you. Not only will it give you kitchen a modern touch, it will also not reduce the space. Added benefit? Since everything is out in the open, chances of it getting cluttered is nearly impossible; seeing that you’ll try to straighten things up often. This will even make your cooking experience more enjoyable.
Sky lights and pendant lights
Lighting is a fantastic way to innovative give your kitchen a modern touch. As this is a space that generally requires a lot of light (unless you’re ok with food poisoning, of course!), using lighting as part of your decoration won’t feel out of place or over the top. Pendant lights are a personal favorite of ours; especially if it artfully hangs over the kitchen island. Remember to select a design that won’t attract too much dust; or you’ll be spending hours every week cleaning it, just to make sure nothing falls into your food…
