How to fall in love with your dream kitchen

Your dream kitchen
How to fall in love with your dream kitchen is about creating a space you’ve always wanted.

What shape that dream kitchen takes depends on many considerations: the style of your home, what your primary vision is for the space, and how you and your family use the room.

Choices, choices
You may want it as a family hub where everyone gathers from everything to having breakfast together, the kids doing their homework there; to ending a glass of wine with loved ones at the end of a busy day. Or you may be interested in a modern country look, urban chic, or a touch of glamour. When it comes to your dream kitchen, the world of design is your oyster!

Consider these factors
Before you commit to your final design choices, think about these factors for your dream kitchen.

  • What does your kitchen mean to you? Is it the heart of your home? What steps do you need to take to turn your kitchen into your dream kitchen?
  • How much time and money are you prepared to invest in your dream kitchen? Do you want a complete overhaul or a makeover that updates the existing space?
  • Are you looking for a kitchen company who can do it all for you or do you want to be project managing many different suppliers and tradies yourself? Are you realistic about how much time you have?
  • What are your deal breakers for your dream kitchen? Will you insists on energy efficiency, products which are not mass produced and how vital are the latest trends in kitchens for you?
  • If you choose a company to oversee your dream kitchen project, what are the main points in determining who you will choose to do the work for you?

Finishes available
When it comes to doors, benchtops, handles, splashbacks and lighting for your dream kitchen, what finishes are available to you? The good news is plenty – and what you choose will depend on the look you want for your dream kitchen.

  • With doors, for example, you can choose between timber, polyurethane, laminate or vacuum-formed. Each have their own advantages.
  • As for benchtops there is also a wide range of choices including engineered stone and a solid surface. Engineered stone is hugely popular because it’s a functional and practical work space as are solid surface benchtop because they are non-porous, and they’re completely repairable and renewable.
