Designing Your Dream Kitchen

Selecting the Perfect Hardware
When it comes to putting the finishing touches on your new kitchen, it's important to consider the small yet significant details. While décor and soft furnishings like pictures, rugs, and runners come to mind, kitchens require additional thought. Choosing the right hardware, such as pull handles, cup pulls, or knobs, can greatly enhance the overall aesthetic of the space. So, as you embark on your kitchen design journey, it's best to have a clear idea of the style you want to achieve and find the elements that align with that vision.
Before diving into the planning process, it's crucial to understand your preferences in terms of material, colour, style, and the overall impression you wish to create. Consider whether you want your fixtures to harmonise with your hardware, such as using the same colour for your lighting, tapware, window frames, appliances, and door handles, to achieve a cohesive look.
When selecting kitchen handles, there are several factors to keep in mind:
- How will they influence the overall look of your kitchen?
- Are they practical and functional for everyday use?
- What materials are they made of? It's important to choose hardware that is durable and user-friendly for your entire family.
Adding the Finishing Touches
If you desire a modern handle but want to infuse your new kitchen with a industrial and contemporary feel, consider the current trend of using luxurious metals like brushed stainless steel, brass, matte black, white and stain nickel.
If you are wanting your hardware finish to complement a wide range of kitchen styles, from classic Hamptons, traditional or a vintage feel, consider copper, satin gold, polished nickel, chrome, antique silver and bronze. Regardless of your choice, ensure that the handle feels comfortable to use and meet your daily functional needs.
The kitchen is often the heart of the home, where you'll spend a significant amount of time. It's typically part of an open-plan space that combines dining, living, and entertaining areas. To create a cohesive and practical kitchen design, consider the colours, lighting, tapware, splashback, and hardware that will contribute to the overall ambiance and functionality you desire.
