As floor plans are becoming more open and the kitchen is more integrated into the main living areas of the home, it becomes increasingly important to carry good design practises into the kitchen. This includes decisions on appliances, doors, drawers, accessories and splash back colours among other things.
It’s important to consider certain elements when determining design direction – they are: colour, materials and the function the space will serve the family.
Previously when people thought about introducing colour into kitchen design they generally went directly to the wall colour or splash back pattern or flooring. Today while this is still important more and more choice and variety allows colour introductions through dishes, glassware, appliances and now more than ever cabinetry, counter-tops and furniture.
Yesterday’s neutral door colours have given way to an intense colour palette.
While traditional and timeless designs still remain popular, new ‘Avant-garde’ colours like those offered by Bella from BA Components add vibrancy and life to any kitchen space. Now the trend to ‘mix and match’ can be followed simply by choosing complimentary colours from the same range.
Essential to any kitchen design is the work and traffic flow. A traditional theory on kitchen layout is the triangle relationship among the fridge, oven and sink. That shape has now evolved into circles, squares and many other configurations as unique as the individuals who use them.
Despite this evolution, the emphasis on function remains essential.
Many homeowners now install two of everything, from dishwashers to ovens to sinks. The added functionality of having pairs of appliances allows for more family members to be involved with cooking, provides more space to store food and makes entertaining more of a breeze as food preparation and clean up are twice as fast.
As BA Components believe, whatever the colour, style and composition of the kitchen, consideration needs to be given to how it will be used every day. It is important to consider your lifestyle and that of your family in order to choose the kitchen that will best accent and update your home.
