Happy New Year from the Complete Home Team. We hope you all had wonderful summer breaks, and that you’re refreshed and excited for a year of renovations, redecorating and redesigning. We definitely are, and today we’re starting with Kitchen designs
- What I’ve learnt from designers is that white is an absolute favourite – white Caesarstone benchtops, and glass topped tables work a treat. Easily wiped down, hard wearing, and with tables that look that good (and wear so well) naff tablecloths are no longer needed. Just a very simple set of placemats.
- Large windows, hopefully showcasing your beautiful backyard, to let a lot of light and air into the room.
- Pop up powerpoints in your benches will also be a lifesaver with the amount of appliances we can run these days.
- If simple white isn’t interesting enough for you, consider coloured or patterned glass splash backs – there are many beautiful options nowadays, from pale pastels to striking brights.
- Consider a tap worthy of the new millennium; there are heaps of taps now that not only give filtered water, but instant boiling, chilled, hot, cold, and sparkling filtered water (and with security locks so your kids wont touch the boiling but can happily enjoy the sparkling). Consider Zip or Billi.
An alfresco kitchen design is another fantastic way of entertaining casually, especially if you have a beautiful backyard, and are blessed with good weather. A lot of kitchen designers have branched into this area, so make sure you check some of their designs out – with an outdoor kitchen you’ll feel like your home is actually a resort.
