Turn Your Kitchen Into A Practical Workspace
John says that the days of matching your kitchen design to the era or style of the home are gone.
“There are three main branches. Those who prefer a very modern kitchen, those with more traditional tastes such as Hamptons style, which is more detailed and intricate, and then the industrial style,” he says.
More and more, the kitchen is at the back of the house opening onto the backyard, so a renovation can be very modern, or any style at all, regardless of the actual period of the home.
It’s very much about expressing exactly what you want, rather than being dictated to by any other factors.
A white kitchen will never date and can be successful in any space. The addition of dark features makes for a pleasing contrast that creates impact.
Size and budget shouldn’t be a barrier to great kitchen design either.
“Don’t assume that bigger is always better. It’s often not the case and if I had the choice, I’d often go with more living space than kitchen space. It all comes down to good design and planning.”
