Building Your Dream Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home.

It’s where family and friends can come together to share food, stories and laughs.

Darren from The Kitchen Maker, in Brookvale, shares the five most important things to consider when creating your dream kitchen.

  1. Scope:
    The most important thing to know about your kitchen build is how big the project will be, and what it’s going to cover.

    Knowing what you want to do with the space will be essential in knowing how much it will cost and how long the project will take.

  2. Style:
    With so many different elements that make up a kitchen, picking one overarching style is important to make sure the kitchen looks consistent and has a good “flow”.

    You don’t want to have spent a large amount of your building budget on elements that look great individually, but clash and feels disjointed when put together.

  3. Cabinets:
    Cabinets are the backbone of your kitchen. It’s where you store your utensils, your food and your tools of creation.

    Well designed and thought out cabinets can not only make your kitchen look great, but can also make it more functional.

  4. Kitchen Benchtop:
    If cainets are the backbone of your kitchen, then the benchtops are the face.
    It’s what your family and guests see when they first step into your kitchen, and having a well chosen benchtop can bring a “WOW” factor to your kitchen.
    For materials, we normally recommend stone benchtops. Not only do they look great, they are also easy to clean and maintain.

  5. Appliances:
    Make sure your appliances carrying the same style or theme as your cabinets and benchtop. For example, in a modern kitchen (with lots of glossy whites) chrome appliances are a safe bet.

Renovating or building your kitchen can be one of the most exciting parts of a building project, but there are a lot of moving parts.

The team at The Kitchen Maker can walk you through each stage of the building process, so that not only do you make the right design choices for your home, but your dream kitchen gets built on time and on budget.
