Adding presence to your kitchen

Want a bigger kitchen but don’t have the space available to you? Or perhaps you’re looking to add some wow-factor features and style to your culinary space so that it leaves that lasting impression.

Whatever your situation, adding presence to your kitchen can help to create a really special setting, while creating the illusion of space. With just a few style and material hacks, you’ll be able to achieve a kitchen with star quality without that hefty price tag.

In today’s blog, we’re sharing just a few design ideas that will help you to add presence to your kitchen, leaving you with a space that’s the envy of all your friends…

Six steps to wow-factor kitchen space

1. Add some mirrors

Forget the pre-conception that mirrors are just for bedrooms and bathrooms. Adding one or two mirrors in your kitchen space will create the illusion that your space extends further than it actually does. For the best results, position your mirror opposite a window or door to make your space airy and bright.

2. Opt for sleek, light, materials

While dark, heavy, woods can close down a space, creating a warm yet cosy space, lighter, brighter materials, such as glass, do the opposite. Stylish and chic, glass is a great alternative for your furnishings and creates the illusion of a larger, clutter-free space.

Clean lines and careful positioning of furniture and appliances also eliminate visual clutter and open up your space. For your worktops, bright white Corian can also add modern vibrancy and a minimalist touch.

3. Let the light in

We can’t emphasise how important natural light is in opening up a space. While a small window may give the impression of a dark and dingy space, larger windows or multiple windows maximise the light that comes into your kitchen and enlarges the space.

4. Add an island

While you may think kitchen islands are bulky and best suited to larger spaces they are actually a great space saver. They reduce the need for worktop space and provide lots of hidden storage. What’s more, an island can add some real personality to your kitchen space, helping you to create that much-wanted standout style.

5. Create a flow

Extending corridor flooring into the kitchen brings uniformity and the impression of greater space. A coherent feel across rooms – such as the utility space, kitchen and dining area also help to create space, especially if similar styling and décor is used throughout.

6. Add standout, reflective features

We’ve already mentioned the use of mirrors and glass in your kitchen in a more conventional way, but how about using these materials creatively? Adding a contemporary touch with a glass-tile mosaic backsplash makes a great focal point that draws the eye, while reflecting the light coming from under cabinet lighting across your space.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
