Creating Your Ideal Kitchen Design in Toowoomba


When it comes to rooms in the house that require the most decoration and design consideration, the kitchen is right up there at the top of the list. The trends for kitchen design
 come and go much faster than the trends in bedrooms and living rooms, and if you want to stay on top of things in terms of being in style, you need to keep abreast of what is going on in the world of home decor and design. 

Here at Coopers Joinery, not only do we specialize in custom cabinets, but we also offer the installation of lots of different types of kitchens, and we love to match up homeowners with their dream kitchen. Here are some tips for choosing a kitchen design that’s perfect for you!

Keep It Practical!
The best advice that you can hear is to make sure that you always put practicalities first over pure aesthetics. No matter how much you want a certain size of cupboard, or style of table, if these things aren’t going to fit nicely in your space, then they shouldn’t be considered. The best kitchen design for you is always going to be one that fits the space the best.

Keep It Functional!
Consider functionality. Do you want the kitchen to be a space to eat as well as for food prep? Do you want a breakfast bar or space for a table? Can this be accomplished by redesigning your existing kitchen rather than starting from scratch? Make a plan and discuss it with others who will utilize the space for feedback or other perspectives.

Storage, Storage & More Storage!
Don’t forget to make room for storage. A great tip is to account for more storage than you actually think you need, because in a kitchen especially, equipment and items always tend to build up over the years.

Lighting!
Pay close attention to where you are planning on placing the lights in your newly designed kitchen. You want to have lights hanging over all of the most important spots like the sink, as well as things like a kitchen island and most used countertops.

Start Fresh!
IF you can afford to, don’t reuse the major appliances that you had in your previous kitchen. There is no better feeling than starting in a completely fresh area with a completely fresh washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer. It’s a big cost upfront, but those new appliances will last you for years. However, if this just isn’t feasible for you, don’t worry! Just give everything a good clean to give the same effect.
