Our kitchens are the heart of our homes so its important to get it right. Kitchen design is a fast moving area of interior design with new technology emerging all the time. Despite this, I think what you really need from your kitchen is a practical and inviting space that makes it easy for you to cook and entertain and that suits your personality and lifestyle.
Your kitchen also needs to fit in with the overall style and design of your home so that the look flows seamlessly from one room to another.
This is especially important given the amount of time we now spend in our kitchens, which are often open plan and provide a space for us to cook, eat, entertain and relax in.
The latest high tech, architectural designs do look fabulous and provide every mod con but many people still prefer a more personal look, especially if their style is more eclectic.
Whether you buy your kitchen from Boffi or IKEA, there is always a way to design an amazing space that suits your lifestyle and budget. The way you accessorise and light your kitchen will have a dramatic effect on the finished look.
These are a few of my recent favourites to provide a little inspiration! More to follow on kitchen design soon…
