With a wide range of kitchen styles to choose from, how do you find the right one for your needs?
The kitchen is the hub of any home, a place where you cook and eat, entertain, gather to chat, and even to work. But whether it’s large or small, getting the style right is all-important – a new kitchen is a large investment and entails a lot of disruption, so it has to stand the test of time.
Which style where?
It used to be that you matched your kitchen to the style of your house – rustic, country styles for cottages, for instance, and shiny, modern designs for new builds – but cherry-picking the best from both modern and traditional can give you a kitchen that is timeless yet practical.
Modern kitchens are usually simple and smooth. Think frameless cabinets, no moldings on doors or twiddly pieces on cupboard ends, and an emphasis on the materials used for building: granite or concrete worktops, say, cupboard doors without handles, stainless steel appliances, glass splashbacks and coatings ranging from matt to gleaming.
Traditional kitchens are defined by their detail and are usually – not always – made of wood. Think of cut-in grooves or raised lines on cabinets, decorative moldings and corbels on wooden doors, ‘antique’ finishes, wooden work surfaces, decorative wall tiles and Belfast sinks.
Transitional kitchens take the best of both worlds and incorporate features from more than one style to suit your needs and personal taste. Think smooth wooden wall cabinets with foldaway glass fronts mixed with a contrasting color on devices below; country-style grooved devices with a cutting-edge cooker hood; tailor-made Corian work surfaces with a stripped pine plate rack. A Shaker-style, with minimal lines, is a perfect example of a mix of classic and contemporary.
The layout of your kitchen will, to some extent, dictate your style.
If you want to bring light into a small galley choose something pale, kitchen and reflective. If you have a large, south-facing space, then a matt end is better than gleaming or the reflections will be irritating – and hot.
Islands work in big spaces but not in small, where streamlined is best.
Glass-fronted cupboards and clear acrylic shelves look less heavy on walls than chunky cupboards with solid doors.
Lighting under devices can be as simple as a stick-on-the-wall, battery-operated strip but it makes all the difference to the final effect.
Mirrored glass – shelves, splashbacks and even kickboards – will give the illusion of space.
White or sparkly work surface types come in laminate and stone and will make rooms seem bigger.
