One of the more notable aspects of kitchen design is that the idea of what is currently “in” changes more times than you put your dishes in the dishwasher! Okay… maybe not that much but it is fair to say that what is in style now, will most likely be passé next year.

Vastly changing the look of your kitchen can cost a pretty penny, so it’s advisable not to go too heavy with the latest fads and opt for a décor you know will last a number of years at least.

Here at Kitchen Warehouse, we like to think that we are a dab hand in all things kitchens, after all, it is our area of expertise! Since our inception, we have seen many different kitchen designs come and go, some remain timeless classics and others have failed to make their mark.

So, let’s check out some of our favourites, shall we?

Making a splash

One of the most disregarded parts of the kitchen when it comes to the final design, adding some variation to your kitchen splashback can be a great way of stealing the show! Normally, the most attention is placed on kitchen doors and units and any thought towards the kitchen splashback is left until the very last minute. But why should this be the case?

With clever tiling and abstract patterns a splashback can really add personality to your kitchen and give a feel of class and sophistication. There are so many different patterns and finishes around that we would be here all day if we tried to list them all, so make sure you do your research and find the right one for you!

You can also get creative with your splashback and incorporate a different material, such as copper, or even turn your backsplash into a chalk board so you always know what’s on the shopping list.

Making use of your storage

Sure, most kitchen ideas have the intention of creating a show stopping look that will have both you and your visitors in awe, but how about if you can achieve this same affect whilst making more room for practical storage too?

The kitchen is a place where kitchen units are pivotal in ensuring that all of your essentials, such as cutlery and tableware, are stored in an area that is easy to navigate. However, if we’re following through on our lockdown bakery or chef promises, then we might need a little more room!

Since the pandemic began, pantries in homes have been on the rise as a way of storing food and kitchen essentials if you have no more space for kitchen cabinets. By converting your kitchen in this way, they give you a new, easily accessible way of reaching all of your kitchen essentials so you can locate all the equipment you need for your next tasty meal.

All good in the hood!

Kitchen hoods have been a fantastic addition to the kitchen for many years now. Their fan mechanism is a smart way of quickly dispersing of fumes, smoke, heat and steam from the air as a result of preparing meals. Don’t be afraid to give this area of your kitchen some careful consideration, it is the perfect opportunity to add a pop of colour to the room if you think it is looking a tad one dimensional.

You can also switch up the look entirely here and add a different material into the mix such as tiling if you are longing for a unique, stand out look.
