Here’s How To Create More Space For Yourself In Your Australian Kitchen

If you have a kitchen refurbishment coming up or you are moving into a new house and the architect wants to know what you want then this can be quite an exciting and rewarding time. The thing about the kitchen is that it is one of the busiest rooms in any Australian home and so it’s going to take some time and effort on your part to create the perfect space for everyone. You need to take into consideration your needs and the needs of anyone else who lives in your home and style has to be a consideration as well.

Depending on the amount of space that you have to work with, you have to make decisions when it comes to appliances that will take up less space so investing in a bottom mount fridge would be a very smart purchase indeed. It puts the freezer at the bottom of the appliance where it really should be and that means that the part of the fridge that you use the most is right there at waist and eye level. There are many ways to make sure that your kitchen utilises space better and the following are just some suggestions to help you do that.

  • Be sure to plan thoroughly – You can’t possibly know what kind of kitchen space that you would like if you don’t have a plan in your mind. You need to create a picture in your head about the layout of your kitchen and the appliances that you would want to have in there with you. It is equally important to find a tradesperson who can create this space for you.
  • Create storage space – If there is one thing that every Australian homeowner complains about, it is the fact that they don’t have enough space and especially so in the kitchen itself. There are many options available to you when it comes to kitchen furniture so investing in overhead cabinets that go right up to the ceiling, including more drawers for your pots and pans and just trying to create a space that isn’t cluttered but is functional.
  • Invest in durable materials – This can cover anything that makes your kitchen look amazing but prepares it for the number of people that will be in the room on any particular day. Invest in quality tiles for the floor and for the walls as well. You could create your own splashbacks using tiles as well and invest in countertops made from stone so that they can be easily wiped down after you have prepared food for the family.

Never underestimate the power of enough lighting in the kitchen area because you want to be able to see what you’re doing when using sharp knives but you also want this to be a place that is inviting to family and guests. It might be an idea to fit a dimmer switch for the times when you just want to relax.
