How To Create A Kitchen Worthy Of Your Culinary Credentials

That peeling veneer on your kitchen cupboard fascias and the beige splash back tiles adorned with ears of corn, rustic loaves, and the odd field mouse are not going to cut it anymore. You inherited a dated kitchen when you moved into your property, and while you are a big fan of the 1980s, your passion for all things retro does not extend to terracotta lino or strip lighting. You love creating new dishes for your friends and family to try, but the kitchen that you have at the moment makes cooking feel like a chore. It’s time to get your creative hat on and design your new kitchen; one that will be worthy of your culinary credentials.

Designing a brand new kitchen can be an expensive business, but there are ways that you can save money. The most important thing is spending the money where it is needed and holding back on the unnecessary luxuries. Many people undertaking home renovations take out a loan to make the financial burden a little easier. Some specialist companies have created a range of loans for people with poor credit allowing vital kitchen remodelling to be carried out while making the repayments on the loan affordable to the homeowner. The most important thing is that you create a budget and stick to it.

Cabinetry

The kitchen cabinets are the first visual aesthetic that needs considering when designing your kitchen. They dictate the look and feel of your kitchen. Are you into high gloss, futuristic style finishes or is the rustic shaker style kitchen more your thing? Head to the high street and shop around. Sometimes you may be lucky enough for the framing to still be in excellent condition. If this is the case, you may only need to purchase the cabinet doors, saving you money.

Walls

Some kitchens have very little wall space as they are taken up with cupboards and appliances. However, if you do have free wall space, think about creating a feature wall to echo the style of your kitchen. You could select wallpaper with a bold geometric design, create a hand painted mural or select something more subtle. A feature wall is a great way of adding a touch of uniqueness to any room.

Lighting

The trend for hanging rustic looking Edison filament light bulbs above a worktop or breakfast table is becoming a little passe. Don’t follow a trend and think about the sort of lighting that you want in your kitchen. If you’re a big fan of spotlights, think about placing them strategically under the cupboards and above work surfaces, not just in the ceiling. You may like the architectural design of stylised light fittings. Think about the theme of your kitchen and make sure your lighting matches.

A new kitchen will not only enhance your lifestyle, but it will also add value to your property. Follow these tips and design the kitchen that you will be happy creating culinary masterpieces in for years to come.
