Interior Designer Glen Ward from Glenpenny Design gives us her six essential tips to revamp your kitchen, arguably the most lived in room in the house.
A super kitchen is the most coveted room in the house. Indeed they have become the heart of the home, so it’s hard to believe, only last century they were usually relegated to a small corner at the back of the house.
With the rise and popularity of the TV chef the most important aspects of our new kitchens fall into loosely six categories;
The kitchen featured above has a mix of cabinet profiles, such as shaker, tongue & groove & flat panels, all used together with shots of colour such as green with a punch of timber. Adding to the eclectic mix the counter tops are also layered, using stainless steel around the sink, stone on the prep areas and timber on the peninsular with a black drum cabinet and custom made lighting from Coco Reynolds in Melbourne as the hero piece. Even so, this kitchen still ‘reads’ as a white kitchen albeit with a few surprises.
The black and white kitchen in the feature shot above with the the sharp green on the splashback is the hero of the room. The beauty of this approach is, in the future, the green splashback can be changed without much cost and the whole kitchen would be transformed and made new again.
Our homes will always be evolving but I am sure the ‘heart’ will stay in the kitchen.
