Creating a diner inspired kitchen

When it comes to today’s kitchen designs, there’s one design that will never grow old. The modern diner style kitchen has grown in popularity in recent years – and it looks like it’s set to stay. To help you start planning yours, we thought we’d share a few of our top tips…

Opt for an open plan kitchen layout

When it comes to designing your diner-inspired kitchen, one thing that’s essential is an open plan design. A kitchen diner is all about space and socialising – so you’ll want to make sure there’s space for cooking, eating, entertaining, and family time.

When choosing an open plan design, you’ll still want to keep the work triangle in mind. This will ensure that everything flows smoothly within the design and that your kitchen space is easy and efficient to work in.

Keep the kitchen design sleek and slimline

When you’re creating an open plan space, you don’t want chunky furnishings and cupboard handles ruining the sleek and sophisticated feel. Instead, maximise space with sleek handleless kitchen cupboards and smooth worktops. Corian is a great material for achieving this look and is available in a wide range of colour too, allowing you to really customise your kitchen diner.

 

Incorporate a variety of dining spaces

Creating a diner inspired kitchen

In a kitchen diner, the right furnishings are really important; they help to create the different social spaces – like the casual breakfast area and a formal dining spot. In your kitchen diner, you’ll want to incorporate a breakfast bar for quick eats and a dining area that takes centre stage – perhaps set up by patio doors. If you have space, a kitchen island works wonders too and can connect to your breakfast bar for a slimline and efficient final design.

 

Add a pop of colour to your kitchen

If you’re going for the American diner style look, why not add a pop of colour? While this isn’t an essential requirement for all kitchen diners, it does add that quirky 50s flair. At Kitchen Design Centre, we’ve worked with colour palettes that had included lime green, bright red, and bold purple. So, when it comes to choosing a pop of colour – anything goes!

 

Maximise kitchen lighting

If your kitchen is going to be used for a variety of purposes, you’ll want to make sure it’s well lit and bright. Natural light is great for opening up and brightening a space and is best achieved with large window or large glass patio doors, which open out onto your garden or terrace. You can also work in some atmospheric lighting too, to help you create the right mood for the different settings in your kitchen. We advise softer lighting, that can perhaps be dimmed, in the dining areas, and bright white LEDs in the work / prep areas.

 

Feeling all inspired? Why not take a look at one of our recent kitchen diner designs installed in the Moloney’s kitchen. Featuring a breakfast bar and island, corner seating dining area, and American fridge freezer, the final design was perfect for the family of five.

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.
