Five interesting kitchen designs to think about

There’s a kitchen for every house – all you have to do is find it. Now that the Coalition Government have announced a relaxing of planning laws for homeowners, there’s even more incentive to modify what you’ve got rather than move somewhere else. This means that your small, dingy cooking area could be rejuvenated into an expansive space for you to prepare meals, relax and entertain. But before you even begin to start thinking about knocking down walls or extending into a garden, you need to consider the design. With a poorly thought-out design, the ramifications can live with you for years, or in the worst possible scenario, even devalue your current living space. There are a few options to consider if you’re dreaming about a new cooking area that you should think about.

If you live in an older country house but you’re dreaming of something more contemporary than your Arga and distressed granite work tops, then the Kutchenhaus Vito range may be for you. Combining stylish high gloss cupboards with wooden worktops in subtle vanilla and Café Latte tones, the Vito range would sit perfectly in an older property in need of a modern touch. Alternatively, if you’d like to bring a touch of the country into your modern home, the Torino collection may be more to your taste. With traditional worktops, cupboards and even butler sinks, the Torino is perfect for the country-born city dwellers looking to bring a bit of the outdoors into their kitchen.

The Kutchenhaus Speed range brings a touch of personality into the kitchen, especially if you pick the eye-catching berry colour scheme. A strong dark purple on the cupboards will contrast with the lighter tones of the worktops, so expect your new kitchen to be a real talking point if you opt for it. Similarly, the Solo option is all about simplicity and style, with stainless steel mixing with high gloss to create a professional-look kitchen with more than a hint of the serious chef. This combination is perfect for anyone wanting to take their cooking a touch more seriously.

Finally, the Romantica range is everything you’d imagine a warm, welcoming kitchen to be. With a washed Sahara colour scheme across the cupboards and plenty of small decorative touches, the appeal of the Romantica is its homeliness. With a certain amount of rustic charm in combination with plenty of elegance, the Romantica is an excellent choice for the growing family after a hub for mealtimes.

There are plenty of kitchens for sale at Kutchenhaus, who specialise in a look and fit for every house and requirement. Whether you’re looking for a better solution for the space you’re currently in, or a complete reimaging for a new house, the experts at Kutchenhaus have something for you. So if you’re considering taking the government up on the relaxed expansion plans, or are looking to modernise a newly purchased dwelling, it’s well worth doing your research and letting the experts take a look first.
