Explicates ideas on interior design
Function is the key
Pay attention to corners
When planning your kitchen layout, pay extra attention to the corners especially when deciding where to place appliances and cabinetry. Ensure that all spaces in the kitchen have been well-planned for the door’s clearance and take swing direction into consideration, to prevent doors from banging into each other when you open them at the same time.
Create a mood boards
Before starting on your kitchen layout, consider creating a mood board. A mood board, as its name suggests, contains elements, colours, textures and picture references that express the desired “mood” and/or style you want to achieve. It gives you a clearer picture of what the outcome can potentially look like - allowing you to make any necessary tweaks to your choice of colour or texture.
Find a focal point
Find a focal point in your kitchen design that attracts the eye or makes a powerful statement. Eyecatching elements can include beautifully crafted concrete countertops, fancy flooring, textured backsplash tiles or even a sleek range hood. Once you’ve decided on the centrepiece, complement that area with other softer elements with eye-catching features to complete the overall look.
Nobody wants to have a dark corner in their house, so place your light sources strategically and don’t block it. Light is something that is often overlooked - but it is important to know that it plays a huge part in the overall look and feel of your kitchen space. Pendant lights are a great way to spruce up your space while bringing in more direct light for specific areas. Install under wall unit lights to give yourself more light for prep work and for a softer atmosphere in the evening, with all the main lights turned off and only using the cabinet lighting.
