So, you’ve set your sights on a brand new kitchen extension. What you want to know now is what to do with it. Well, as we are kitchen extension experts ourselves, we thought we would share our top tips on how you can make the most out of your new kitchen extension.
If you’re unsure what a kitchen extension is, the clue’s in the name. It is an extension of your home with a direct focus and goal of allowing more kitchen space. Cramped kitchens is an issue many people face in their home, which makes kitchen extensions extremely popular and sought-after.
So, let’s crack on and run through some of our kitchen extension top tips.
DIVIDE AND CONQUER
When the project of erecting your kitchen extension is over you will soon realise the amount of space you truly have in your new kitchen. What’s important is to make sure you use up all that space to get the most out of it.
To take advantage of the ample space, we recommend splitting your kitchen into sections. For example, one defined area is for cooking, another part of the kitchen can be assigned to prepping food, a space for making drinks, and so on. With the introduction of an island or a peninsula, this will be an even easier way to achieve this open plan kitchen style.
WORK WITH THE OUTDOORS
What makes a great kitchen is one that connects with the outdoors. What do we mean by this? Well, there are a couple ways you can achieve this.
Firstly, make use of natural light; it’s a great thing to have in your home. Not only does introducing natural light into your home have an energy efficiency advantage, but it also has a whole list of benefits for you and your family, such as stimulating productivity, being great for house plants, promoting better sleep, reducing stress and so much more. To achieve more natural light in your kitchen extension, skylight windows can be installed and glass sliding doors to the garden can be implemented.
Speaking of the garden, another neat trick for using the outdoors to your advantage is to match floor tiles in the kitchen with the patio of your garden. This creates the illusion of a larger kitchen space and is great for aesthetics and promotes a free-flowing environment.
MAKE YOUR OWN
Here at Bespoke Norfolk Group, we’re big believers in making a house a home and when it comes to extensions, in this case, kitchen extensions, our philosophy is the same. This top tip is one of the absolute best ways to get the most out of your kitchen extension.
To start with, try choosing a theme for your new space and stick with it. A theme could be rustic or modern. Make it consistent – the cupboards, furniture, walls and appliances all work together to make your kitchen look amazing.
Another way you can customise your new kitchen space is to experiment with colours and pick a colour palette that suits you. Add personal touches, like pictures, ornaments and keepsakes.
