Be Inspired

Browse magazines, showrooms and home design blogs and sites like Pinterest or Houzz to gather inspiration. Take note of the kitchens that catch your eye and what it is that you like most about the design.

HOT TIP: Start a list of what you think are the ‘must haves’ versus the ‘nice to haves’.

Cabinetry Solutions

Bespoke, high-end kitchens will feature custom cabinets, however you can achieve a similar look at a fraction of the cost. For example, Freedom Kitchens offers flexibility with its extensive range of door styles, colours and finishes and will create a kitchen to suit any style.

HOT TIP:  Stick to cabinets rather than drawers. This is much more cost effective and will leave some extra cash to spend on other luxuries within the kitchen.

HOT TIP: Get a designer look by combining two contrasting benchtop colours, materials, heights or thicknesses. The variation will pique interest whist providing the opportunity to include that feature top if it’s on your must have luxury list!

Customise with Colour

Create visual interest and make your kitchen look bespoke by adding some colour. Whilst a white kitchen is safe and timeless, play around with a few colour combinations on Freedom Kitchens Kitchen Customiser and see how swapping sections of white cabinetry to black, woodgrain or a bright coloured will take your kitchen from white to WOW.

HOT TIP: Interesting pendant lighting or decorative tiled splashbacks will bring in colour, letting your personality and style shine through.
