And it is also one of the rooms of your home that can help increase the value of your property. Here’s what goes into the ultimate kitchen for 2015:
For the ultimate kitchen, an island is a must-have. The island could be just another worktop, or it could also provide an informal seating area. Some islands contain a food preparation station complete with a stretchy hose mixer tap and sink. For the ultimate in luxurious kitchen islands, you might have a double hob set too.
The cooker or oven could be mains gas or a electric fan oven. For those with solar panels, the latter would be the cheaper option in terms of running costs. There might be a separate grill within your cooker option. You will also need a hob. These can be part of the set or bought separately. Choose from this season’s stylish cooker hoods to extract all the steam and smells from your cooking areas.
Some kitchens have a single basin, and others have three. No matter how many sinks you have, you need to have them in a practical layout. Perhaps you want to have a food preparation sink, and then a general washing area. Professional kitchens have a special hand washing station as well. If you don’t have a separate utility or laundry area, consider a third sink. This is for your detergents and household cleaning requirements.
The ultimate kitchen will have a stylish worktop. High gloss continues to dominate the style trends for kitchens this season. Some have flecks of reflective material to make them sparkle and shine. That way they can pick up even the dimmest of lights and look spectacular. Darker colours look very good as do wooden surfaces. Choose something hard-wearing for the ultimate kitchen that lasts.
For many people, the ultimate kitchen will be packed full of appliances. Boiling water taps, garbage disposal units, and dishwashers are very handy. A giant-size American fridge-freezer would also make the list for the ultimate kitchen. Microwave and toaster ovens give you a wider choice of cooking options. Blenders, Bread ovens, hand-held kitchen tools and fryers are also great to have out on the worktops.
Many people like to include some form of dining option within their kitchen design. You might choose to have a small breakfast table, or even have space for a formal diner. Many designs include a couple of bar stools for somewhere to sit and chat and enjoy a drink.
An ultimate kitchen is a place you will want to spend most of your time. Whether you are cooking eating, working or entertaining, this space should function well for all your needs. What will go into your ultimate kitchen design?
