This guide will help you to make the most out of your renovation, so you can get all of the features and the colors you want without compromise. If you want to find out more then simply look below.

Stylish Partitions

Open-plan kitchens are very popular right now. If you want to create a sense of separation within your space then look to partitions. Partitions are great as they can help you to eliminate noise, such as from the dishwasher and they can also help to limit the noise from extractor fans too. They can even stop the smell of cooking from traveling throughout the home too, which is great. If you don’t want your partition walls to add a lot to the home then one thing you can do is try and add some nice wallpaper or paint. By doing this, you can then make sure that you don’t compromise your space. If you need some help with your design then one way for you to get this kind of help would be for you to look online. When you do, you can then be inspired by all of the options that are there for you to choose from.

Embrace your Kitchen Plan

Have you found inspiration with a feature wall? Then this is great. Pay attention to one color and then collaborate on the rest of the design. This will help you streamline your kitchen renovation. Another thing you can do is choose deep and dramatic colors throughout, as this gives an element of grandeur, even in the tightest of spaces. 


Direct the Focus

Planning and then designing your kitchen island gives you the chance to make a statement. It gives you a creative feature to work with too. As well as being functional, you can also turn it into a focal point. You can add a stunning granite worktop or you can even choose to add some open-ended storage. Either way, you should make sure that there is a stand-out feature in your kitchen because if there isn’t then this can make the space appear busier and more cluttered than it needs to be, which can make it even more difficult for you to get the overall look you are going for.

Drink Station

Who wouldn’t want to have a bar within their home for nice summer evenings? If a social space is what you want then it’s a good idea for you to include a stone worktop for a luxury feel. You can then go for a mirrored back so you can achieve a high-end finish. Adding a cocktail shelf or a glass holder can work out well here. It also helps you to create a bespoke and very luxurious feel for your new space, so make sure that you keep that in mind.

Banquet Seating

Top designers do swear by having banquette seating. This is the best way for you to create a cozy kitchen. One way for you to boost visual interest would be for you to add an assortment of throws and pillows. You can also add some high shelves, which you can then use to display some kind of collection. 

Gallery Wall

You can’t be more creative than showing your interest from an artistic point of view. The great thing about having a gallery wall is that you can display all of our favourite art on the same wall. If you have a windowless kitchen then this will give it the perfect view as well, so you can open up your space while eliminating boring walls. This is a cheap, affordable way to spruce up your home.

Two-Tone Cabinets

Mixing light and dark grays can help you to create a very clever look. Glazed units can also make any gray cabinetry you have, stand out. Pair this with some open wall units so you can showcase your cabinetry while adding a bit of contrasting color. This is a great way for you to add a unique look, so keep that in mind.

Make Room for A Crowd

If you have a very oversized island, and you have a spacious floor plan then you have everything you need to host a large group. If you have something like this then you can easily make room for both food and conversation. This is ideal if you have a lot of family and friends, so embrace it. Work it into your design as much as you can and make sure that you add plenty of lighting. By adding some over-counter lighting, you can illuminate the space while also making sure that you get the overall look you are going for.

Stand-out Tile

There are many ways that you can add a very interesting amount of detail to your kitchen. One way to do this would be for you to add some speciality tile for your backsplash. Shades of pink, blue and even orange can work well here. You can also tie the space together in a unique way, yet somehow unexpected.

Make a Big Statement

Sometimes, the best way for you to bring your room together would be for you to make a statement. If you have a high ceiling then adding a large hood will easily draw the eyes to the right part of the room. Buying a large or luxurious stove hood will help you to get the look you are going for and it is a fantastic way for you to liven up your space.

Open things Up

Some homes are built with the idea that the kitchen and the room next door have to be separated. This can result in a very small kitchen that has a poor layout. If you can use the island in place of a wall, then this will give you an open feel without having to worry about the two rooms encroaching on one another. As a general rule, if you can treat the islands as if they are center stage then this will work wonders as it becomes a space that can be used by the whole family.

Your Pantry should be a Feature

Not everyone has a pantry that is worthy of being put on Pinterest but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the effort. If you want to create an interesting focal point then don’t shut your pantry behind the door, and instead, involve it within your space. Put all of your spices within glass jars and put them on show. Arrange them in a way that is both neat and organized, if you want to make your space look inviting and luxurious. By doing this, you can then make sure that everything comes together nicely.

Bar Stools

If you want to add some bar stools then this is a very good way for you to free up space while adding seating. Consider adding a bar stool in the corner of the room next to a small table so people can sit with you while you cook. You might also want to try and add some bar stools under the kitchen island so you can free up as much of the walkway as possible. Little things like this can help you to make the most out of your design and they are a fantastic way to you to liven things up in the kitchen roo, so be mindful of that.
