When designing a kitchen, an interesting idea is to look at is how much space may be needed to work efficiently. Is it preferred to have one person or more than one in the kitchen when preparing and cooking food. This is a personal matter for the person who will be using the kitchen the most but it should reflect in the design.
Appliances can add colour to a kitchen. These are often used to add that final statement. These can be in dark or light colours and can add an interesting style and contrast to otherwise plain worktops. Choosing red appliances can work with white areas or those with darker colours.
Adding features to a plain kitchen can help improve the look and add to its appeal. For kitchens Brighton that is all white, adding a cabinet colour that contrasts with the workbench and walls, may make all the difference to the finish at the end. Thinking about and matching colours or grain finishes that blend without being formidable can add that finished touch to an otherwise plain kitchen and give it visual appeal.
An idea to avoid is adding the kitchen sink to the island bench. The island bench is often the work point and a kitchen sink in this location would remove a lot of work space. If a neat house is far more appealing, then an island bench with a sink will often be untidy especially if the dishes are allowed to drip dry. In this case the sink may be better suited if place along a kitchen wall or under a kitchen window.
