We know that kitchens are no longer just food preparation areas. They are a place to congregate, for the kids to do their homework, to eat, entertain and socialise.
Whether building or renovating, we at Go2 Homes think primarily about the following 7 things, to future proof what is potentially your most important space…your kitchen.
1 Plan the flow of your space well. Whether the layout is: Island, U-shaped, Straight Lined, Galley or Peninsula; access to the fridge, stove, sink and food prep areas need to be ergonomically planned.
2 Encourage flow to other areas in your house, allowing for circulation and giving room for a combination of activities.
3 Add an Island bench, or low-key congregation area if possible.
4 Update your appliances.
5 Select timeless and low-key colours.
6 Install practical and ample storage.
7 Have bright and welcoming lighting.
… then, just add you!
