Kitchen design myths
Getting a kitchen renovation can be exciting but it also raises questions about colour, style, materials, as well as function. Questions such as should you mix materials? Do you need a professional kitchen designer? Is bigger better?
With so much conflicting advice around, here’s some tips to help with some of the kitchen myths from professional Gold Coast kitchen renovation experts Phoenix Kitchens.
The first thing to consider when designing a kitchen renovation is why you’re doing it and what you want to get from it. Is it to add value to your home, update or change the style of your kitchen, or is it to improve functionality? Sometimes it can be a combination of reasons. Knowing your reasons before you start will help determine your budget and design. How you use the kitchen and how often you use your kitchen are both important considerations in designing your kitchen to fit your lifestyle, taste, and budget.
Rustic, modern, traditional, contemporary, beach, hamptons, and industrial, are all styles of kitchens. The good news is that you can mix styles, and often with stunning effect, so feel free to combine two or more of your favourite styles to create your own unique look. We went for a ‘City Beach’ theme and love it.
Many people are limited with space when it comes to the kitchen. This is good news because bigger does not always equal better. If you have a smaller kitchen, you’re more likely to invest in only the useful appliances you use regularly. Layout is important to keep workflow efficient and safe.
Neutral colours can be tempting because they feel timeless and safe but if you want to use bold colours and not sure if it will work, we have some great tips on how to achieve this.
