Consult with a professional kitchen designer…

A professional designer can be invaluable when planning a new kitchen.  Experienced designers will possess a wealth of knowledge on the various components required to construct a long-lasting, quality kitchen.  Designers who specialise in kitchens also have a firm understanding of the working triangle; and know exactly how to create spaces geared toward effortless workflow.  Consulting with a professional will save you a lot of needless frustration… no matter how you intend to bring your dream kitchen to life.

Kitchen Styles

How are kitchen styles defined?

Kitchen styles fall into three main categories: traditional, classic (transitional), and contemporary.  Styles can be further categorised within the three main categories as: modern, country, rustic, minimalist, eclectic, industrial, and scandinavian, or a combination of these styles.  Your personal taste will define which of the sub-categories your kitchen falls within.

To pull off any particular style, or combination of styles, one needs to determine how the style will be achieved by applying one of the four basic kitchen designs; namely: taditional shaker, modern shaker, flat panel, and handleless finger grip.

Traditional style kitchens are defined by their captivating details.  They exude charm and character with their unique stylized touches. Personal styles that fall within the traditional category may include: old world, mediteranean, coastal, country, rustic, and even industrial.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic, or transitional, kitchens are the moderator between traditional and contemporary styles.  They are sophisticated and timeless, combining styles that fall within the traditional and contemporary scopes.  Virtually any personal style preference can be applied to this type of kitchen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Contemporary kitchens are characterised by their clean lines.  Buzz words that describe this style are: sleek, luxe, minimalist, modern, fresh and trendy.  The simplicity of this design style allows you to express your personal style through the clever use of colour and texture to create a fresh modern space.

Kitchen Layouts

Choosing a kitchen layout

Kitchens can be laid out in numerous ways.  The layout you decide on may depend on the existing layout of your home.  How you intend to work within the space also plays an important role.  Things to consider when choosing a layout are whether your kitchen will be open-plan, partially open-plan, or completely separate from living areas.

Click on a tab below to find out more about a particular layout.

A straight, or one-wall, layout is the simplest of kitchen layouts – with the entire kitchen being placed along a single wall in a straight line. 

This layout is typically used in studio-type apartments where the kitchen forms part of the main living area.  It can also be applied where the layout of the room is long and narrow with an entrance at either end.

Galley kitchens are also referred to as corridor kitchens.  The units are laid out in two parallel lines creating a central corridor in which to work. 

This layout provides an abundance of storage and counter space in a compact space.  Galley layouts are ideal for small kitchens that need to serve as a thoroughfare to other areas of the home.

The G-shaped layout is suited to kitchens that are completely separated from the rest of the home, having only a single entrance into the room.  All four walls are utilised to provide ample storage and a working triangle geared toward functionality. 

Similar to the G-shaped layout is the peninsula layout which, provides equal functionality in a semi-open plan space.

The L-shaped layout simply put is a kitchen in a corner.  Whether the kitchen is open plan, or completely separate from the rest of the home, this layout creates an open, airy feel. 

In an open-plan space the L-shaped layout is particularly well suited to combining wall cabinetry with a free-standing island to define the area of the room.

The U-shaped layout is incredibly functional, placing the three main stations conveniently around the cook.  A U-shaped layout can work in both narrow and wide spaces, and work equally well in open-plan areas as they do in stand-alone rooms. 

If the space is wide enough an island can also be incorporated into this layout.

This layout is characterised by having two (or three) sides with wall units, and a connected third (or fourth) side which extends to create a peninsula.  The peninsula separates the kitchen from other living areas in an open-plan home.  This layout lends itself to social gatherings “in the kitchen” with the cook unhindered by guests.  A peninsula is often used to create a handy breakfast bar making it ideal for families with children in the home.

An island can be added to most kitchen layouts.  In a large kitchen an island can be used to bring work stations closer together. 

A kitchen island is often used to separate the kitchen from living areas in an open-plan home.  And, where more than one cook is expected to work in the kitchen at the same time an island creates ease of flow, allowing for cooks to move around the kitchen without disturbing one another.
