Laurent. Kitchen. October 31st , 2017.
Planning and decorating your kitchen. Kitchens are the most hard-working room in the home. In many modern households they are so much more than a place to cook and clean. They’re the hub of the house, where people come together to eat, relax and socialise. With all these different jobs to perform, getting the right kitchen design is essential. Kitchens must, of course, be practical, but with an ever-increasing range of kitchen cabinets, kitchen appliances, kitchen worktops and kitchen accessories to choose from, they can also be a stylish space that reflects your personality.
Cream country-style kitchen with exposed wood beams and stone flooring. In a farmhouse choose a kitchen design that complements the original features in your home. Here cream cabinetry and pale stone flooring blend seamlessly with the vaulted ceiling and exposed wood beams. The island unit has been painted in coordinating stone and accents of pink and purple have been added with fuchsia pendant lamps, glassware and a pretty patterned blind.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and your table works hard to fulfill many functions – as a place for evening meals, family gatherings, somewhere children can do their homework, or a spot to sit with a cuppa and your laptop. Consider the space available, an extending kitchen table could be the best choice if you entertain occasionally. Choose from farmhouse tables with exposed wood tops, in raw oak or painted finishes to add classic style, and if you have space, a refectory table that can be paired with benches is perfect for families. Get a mid-century modern look with the curves and tapered legs of an Ercol table, or go for a contemporary style with a white steel frame kitchen table.
If you don’t have a separate utility room, you may also need to factor in a washing zone for your washing machine and tumble dryer. A combined washer-dryer will save space and can be tucked away behind kitchen unit doors when not in use. In an open-plan kitchen, you will also need a separate dining and/or living area, placed as far away from the work zone as possible so as not to disturb anyone eating or relaxing in those areas. A breakfast bar is a smart way to squeeze in informal seating in a small kitchen.
