Design Your Dream Kitchen: From Ideas to Reality
Do you wish your kitchen was more like the kitchens found in magazines and on TV – sleek, glossy, and luxurious? A bespoke kitchen is a kitchen designed to suit your needs. Let’s think about ways to design your dream kitchen today.
It can be an extension of yourself or it can be a statement piece that shows off who you are as a person. If this sounds like what you want for your home, read on to find out how you can turn ideas into reality!
In this blog post, we are going to help you make your dream kitchen comes into reality through these tips:
Find Kitchen Inspirations
First of all, decide what you want from your kitchen. Do you want a high-end kitchen that is minimalistic and space-saving or one with lots of storage? Are there any features from other kitchens you would like to include in your design? Keep these things in mind as we move forward.
You can find inspiration for what kitchen you want to have from magazines, TV, or even online. There are tons of kitchen design inspirations. You can find them on Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr. You can also find inspiration from other parts of your home such as the living room or bedroom.
If you are still not sure about what you want, do not worry! There’s always helps. You can always contact professional kitchen designers such as Baruchi Studios. Our kitchen designers will come up with a design that is based on your specifications. Or we can work together with you to create ideas for your dream kitchen.
Select Your Favourite Kitchen Furniture
The second step is to choose your kitchen units, worktops, and appliances. There are lots of kitchen units out there and they can either be bespoke or off the shelf. The thing is, if you want a unit that is truly yours then it’s best to go for bespoke kitchen units. This is because these will fit in with your design seamlessly.
When choosing worktops, think about what style works well with your modern kitchen design. And then consider which materials you prefer. There are many choices when it comes to worktops. Stone, quartz, laminates, and solid surfaces are some of the most popular choices.
As for appliances, you can go bespoke too! There are lots of appliances out there that suit different kitchen designs and themes. If you want a more modern look then stainless steel is usually what will work best with your design. But if it’s something classic or vintage that you’re looking for – copper or brass will fit in nicely.
Once you’ve got an idea in your head of what kind of premium kitchen you want and selected all the furniture that goes with it, do not forget to plan the budget. You may have an idea of what you want but it is also important that your kitchen fits into your budget, otherwise, there’s no point in having a bespoke kitchen if you won’t be able to afford it!
Explain Your Kitchen’s Functions
The third step is to explain what your kitchen needs to do – for example, does it need a dishwasher or oven? If you have an appliance that has special functions then make sure this information is provided when designing the bespoke units and worktops.
You can take inspiration from other parts of your home for this step too. For example, if you have an old fireplace then it will be perfect to use as a kitchen island or sink unit! This is because the design and layout are similar – both function as focal points in the room so they will work well together.
The same can be said for kitchen bars. Kitchen bars are really popular in the US and if you want one in your bespoke kitchen then that’s fine too! You can choose to have it installed at counter height or bar stool height.
Design Your Favourite Flooring
The fourth step is to design your favorite flooring – whether this means parquet, vinyl, or carpet. You can find inspiration from other parts of your luxury home again for this step – especially if you want a kitchen with vintage style décor!
Keep in mind that the flooring will work well with the rest of the design and function including any appliances. If you have an oven then there should be some kind of protection between it and the flooring.
The fifth step is to think about how you want the kitchen layout. For example, do you prefer having large worktops or more units? Do you need separate areas for storage and cooking?
The kitchen layout will depend on your needs and what you plan to use the room for. If it is a space that has high traffic then there should be enough worktops, storage areas, and appliances to suit everyone’s requirements instead of having one decided area (i.e.: cooking).
Take into consideration your appliances too – if there are several that will be used at the same time then it’s best to have them close together so they can be operated at the same time and you can move around easily.
Design Your Dream Kitchen with a Designer
After you applied all of these steps, what you have to do next is to contact a kitchen designer. They will be able to take all the information you’ve provided and design a bespoke kitchen that is perfect for your home. They will also assist you in the installation of the kitchen to ensure it’s all up and running in no time.
So, what’s next? Well, now all you need to do is wait for everything to be delivered and installed – this can take a few weeks so make sure not to schedule any big events in your kitchen before you get it all completed!
Once everything has been installed, make sure to check the appliances are connected properly and that they work. You don’t want to find out something was not set up correctly after all this hard work – especially if there’s a fault with one of them!
