Designer kitchens can be achieved no matter what budget or size if you have the right approach. Kitchen planning is a great way to design the best kitchen for your home and get it right.
Whether you are designing a kitchen for a family or just for yourself, you will want to make it work for your lifestyle.
Look at the kitchen in every way it might get used, whether you will use it a lot or not very often. If you are someone who loves to cook then you will probably have different design ideas than someone who is not much of a cook and will not spend much time in the kitchen.
A first home is usually a smaller house, perhaps two or three bedrooms and with a modest kitchen. If your first home has a larger kitchen then that is great, you will enjoy using the space. If it is just for one or two of you, then the kitchen will be a place to cook food, share a meal and entertain. Unlike the family home that may be catering for lots of little ones, too, the first home tends to be a bit more adult friendly and enjoyed. If you have room, you might have an area for a wine rack and plenty of room for all the mod cons.
The family home will traditionally be larger, with a bigger kitchen to accommodate the whole family. It is a place that adults and kids will use and needs to be child friendly, especially when they are very young.
You will not only be considering design aspects in terms of the look of the kitchen but also practicality and safety. For example, if you have young children you will need to make sure that sharp objects or dangerous substances are locked away or put out of reach and you will not want any sharp edges. The family kitchen is such a wonderful place for all to come together and spend time together. It will often be one of the busiest rooms in the house, with breakfasts to be eaten, lunches to be made, after school snacks required and dinners and suppers. Not to mention parties on occasions or Christmas lunches. So the family kitchen really needs to stand up to the test.
