Five ingredients for a great kitchen

Marketing

1. Functionality

Designers usually refer to the ‘kitchen work triangle’ which is the triangle that should form in your kitchen between the oven, fridge and sink. These three items should be carefully placed, with ample room between them, the ultimate result being increased efficiency.

2. Ample bench space

Your kitchen should have two distinct areas of bench space. A preparation area should be located next to your hotplate and/or oven, and there should be an additional serving and set down area.

3. Storage

In a modern kitchen, storage can come in many different forms. Whilst cupboard space is important, also ensure you have enough drawers. Ideally one set of cutlery drawers and one set of pot drawers, although you may also want to consider things like canister shelves and a bin drawer. There should also be ample pantry space for the size of your household.

4. Quality and durability

Having durable, easy to clean, quality appliances and flooring in your kitchen is essential. Let’s face it, the kitchen gets a workout. It is used multiple times a day, and often serves as a thoroughfare. Your flooring choice is also an important decision considering the amount of foot traffic a kitchen receives. Make sure you have a hard floor under foot – vinyl and tiles are a popular kitchen floor choice for their durability and cleaning ease.

5. Visually appealing

Nine times out of 10, the kitchen becomes the hub of the home. It’s the place where families chat and it tends to be the focal point of the home. So you want it to look good. Think about the colour bench top against your chosen splashback. Try not to choose a splashback that will date quickly. And your colour scheme in your kitchen should be reflective of your home’s style.
