Kitchen Design Ideas for A Functional and Stylish Space

Perth custom home kitchens that are well designed and functional show that you can make an impact in the most important room of your home.

The kitchen is the heart and soul of a home. Therefore, it is crucial to plan your kitchen in a way that is both practical and functional. It is also important to make sure it looks great.

Kitchens are a far cry from their earlier days when the kitchen was hidden away from house guests. The kitchen has become a space for cooking, entertaining, working and relaxing. Modern kitchens have open layouts, making the kitchen easily visible. A kitchen’s design is as important as any other room in a Perth custom home’s interior. It should be sleek and seamless.

Choose Your Ideal Layout

It’s vital to make the layout work. You should take the time to think about where the necessary kitchen equipment, such as the oven, stove, oven, fridge, and sink, should be located. You want to ensure the layout is organised and efficient so that food preparation, cooking, and entertaining are easy. Plan your kitchen carefully to ensure the best functionality and efficiency.

It is important to savour the space. You should store cutlery and plates near the table. Pots and pans should be kept close to the stoves. A spice rack is also useful so you can grab seasoning quickly while preparing a tasty meal.

Understand When to Splurge and When to Save

Although the kitchen is a major expense in a new Perth custom home’s construction budget, it doesn’t always have to be expensive. First-time Perth custom home builders often wonder how to make a kitchen look luxurious while still sticking to a budget. These are some simple ideas:

Contemporary Appliances and Fixtures

Sleek, modern appliances are available in polished stainless steel or matte-black finishes. These low-cost versions look very similar to the high-end models. The main difference between appliances and fittings is in their settings and features. This makes it easy to achieve a designer look with a budget-friendly option. You don’t need bulky, freestanding sinks or ovens. Integrating your appliances can give your kitchen a sleek look that makes it feel luxurious.


Take Advantage of Texture

Although modern, luxurious kitchens are more minimalistic in appearance, that doesn’t necessarily mean they have to be boring. By using white cabinetry and bench tops, the space has a feeling of spaciousness, but it is possible to add interest and depth by cleverly using other textures. You can find texture in cabinetry doors and bench tops as well as splashbacks, flooring, and hardware. The look will be enhanced by combining beautiful marble with simple, clean cabinetry designs and subtle details such as brass or metallic tapware and lighting.
