New kitchen design and remodelling ideas
There’s so much to consider when you’re renovating or remodelling your kitchen, so here are some new kitchen design ideas. But remember, if you need more individual design and installation advice, just contact our kitchen makeover team in Perth to arrange a no-obligation consultation.
Kitchen accessories in the design process
Accessories are vital to the kitchen design and remodelling process. Quite often, kitchen accessories provide the finishing touches that make your new kitchen shine and function properly.
Blum provides a range of innovative storage accessory solutions, enabling you to customise your cabinetry: spice racks, knife sharpeners, film and foil dispensers, inner dividing systems, easy-remove cutlery storage options, plate holders, bottle holders, cleaning products… the list is endless.
Kitchen mechanisms: Vital when remodelling
Often, the quality of a new kitchen is ultimately decided by the functional details. That’s why choosing the right mechanisms can make the difference between a good kitchen and a great one.
Generally, Hafele products offer more storage space, making your kitchen design more effective and efficient. From touch-control pull-out pantries and swing-out pantries, to corner cabinet solutions, such as the LeMans, Magic Corner and the Revo 90 (Lazy Susan). Visit the Hafele site for more information.
Blum has a wide range of hinge, lift and pull-out systems. These include self-closing mechanisms, touch-opening systems and soft-close drawers that make any kitchen more functional and convenient. Visit the Blum website for details or contact our kitchen remodelling consultants in Perth.
Maximising space: A key concept in kitchen design
If space is an issue in your home, then we can offer many different design solutions that will maximise storage and improve your kitchen’s functionality. And they’ll look great too. We’re talking about integrated kitchen design solutions, such as:
- Hidden cupboards
- Overheads with a range of hinge systems
- Drawers under sinks
- Corner drawer systems and mechanisms
- Appliance cupboard options
- Some colour inspiration
When contemplating colour options for your new kitchen, consider the overall impression you want to make. Do you want your kitchen to blend with the rest of the home, or do you want it to become a special feature? How do the colours of the rest of the home affect the choice of colour in the kitchen?
Both Polytec and Laminex provide a range of fashionable colour ideas and concepts. Contact our kitchen design consultants for some advice – we have our own in-house colour consultant who advises our clients on choosing the right colour palette.
Benchtops: Decisions, decisions…
Choosing the right surface for your new kitchen is very important, not only from a functional and cost point of view, but also from a design perspective. Durability is a key issue, but the choice of colour/surface also has a major impact on the overall aesthetic of your kitchen. Finish, thickness, combinations – there are myriad variables and materials to consider:
- Engineered stone
- Solid timber
- Stainless steel
Our kitchen remodelling consultants will work with you one-on-one to ensure you make the right choices for you and your family. Contact us to arrange a no-obligation consultation.
Remodelling your kitchen lighting
Lighting is an integral part of any new kitchen design. Consider how much natural lighting you have. Think about task lighting for activities such as washing, cooking and food preparation. There are many different options to weigh up:
- LED strip lighting that can be recessed to the underside of cabinets
- LED downlights, both in the cabinetry and in the ceiling
- Pendant lighting, ideal task lighting
- Wall mounted lighting options
- Splashbacks as a design feature
As with benchtops, splashbacks are functional yet vital to the overall aesthetics of a new kitchen design. When remodelling, there is a host of splashback materials to consider – glass, tiles, stainless steel, stone – and even more colour options, but always bear in mind how effective the material is. How easy is it to clean? How resistant is it to heat and steam? Our consultants can help you find the right solution.
