What we Want When it Comes to Kitchens – and How to Get it

May 24, 2015 The Amateurs Digest 0

According to Kitchen Professionals when it comes to kitchens, most women want one that is functional but also looks good. These days this is one of the most important rooms in the house. Instead of being tucked away where no one can see it like it used to be years ago, the kitchen has now evolved to become the epicentre of the home – and so it should be.

Every woman wants a lovely kitchen that is also practical. Having the latest appliances such as refrigerator, stove and dishwasher is also good, but if they are not in the right place for the best functionality, and if the cupboards are hard to get at, or incorrectly positioned to make cooking inefficient then the whole kitchen is spoiled.

That is why when you are renovating the kitchen or building a new home it is better by far to get the kitchen designed by a professional company that does it for a living. An architect cannot be trusted to design the kitchen in a way that is totally practical because they tend to go for looks rather than practicality. The builder just follows the building plans so you can’t expect him to design a good kitchen.

And of course, even though most women have had experience cooking in a number of different kitchens and know what works when they are using it, they may not know what does not work – until it is too late and they go to use their new kitchen. They then realise that the preparation area is not handy to the sink or the stove, or else the cupboards are not that easy to access.

Trends in Kitchen Design that You Will Love

November 2, 2014 The Amateurs Digest 0

There are many different trends in kitchen design according to Colray Cabinets, but not all are suitable for everyone and some may be so faddish that your kitchen will date really quickly. Since the kitchen costs quite a bit to renovate, you don’t want to risk it becoming so passé within a few years so that you have to do it all over again.  When you have an experienced designer for your kitchen you can be sure that the design will last a long time and suit your needs.

Here are some trends in kitchen design that you are sure to love.

  • Simply white.  Statistic show that white has gained in popularity over the last decade and looks set to stay that way. White not only makes the kitchen look and feel lighter and larger, it is easy to keep clean, especially when it comes to appliances. White appliances are much more popular than stainless steel with its mirror like finish that shows every smudge. So you can’t go wrong with white, but what happens if you like colour?
  • Neutral grey is the next most popular colour for kitchens. However, it can be drab or cold if it is not treated the right way. You need to add pops of warm or bright colour in accessories such as stools.
