I don’t think I ever fully appreciated how important the kitchen is within a family home until I had children. A kitchen needs to be functional and family friendly, but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice beautiful interiors. The older I get, the more I realise a kitchen can be both visually appealing and perfect for families. As I’m sure you already know, I’m a Mum of two. Therefore, I spend a lot of time making meals, doing laundry and washing dishes. My kitchen goals wish list is extensive, but also a great way of helping you to decide what your dream kitchen entails.
Firstly, and most importantly, you need to consider the space you have available. Our kitchen is quite small, so if I was to put my dream kitchen in this house, I’d need to make the most of the space available for storage. The best thing to do is imagine an empty room. Then, consider the space available both on the ground and higher up. You’ll be amazed at how much storage you can fit in even the smallest kitchens. All you need to do is think outside of the box and maximise every last bit of space.
If my kitchen goals ever become a reality, storage space would be at the top of my priority list. In my opinion, you can never have enough storage, especially in a kitchen. Also at the top of my wish list is stunning worktops that both look amazing and withstand the pressure of a busy family home. Worktops that scratch easily are not what you want when you need to make a sandwich in a rush! I’d absolutely love a beautiful, durable laminate or quartz worktop in my dream kitchen. Worktops such as these have serious wow factor, but can also handle heavy use.
I’d also like my dream kitchen to look clean and fresh, so I’d definitely choose pure white or light grey cupboards against a slightly darker wall colour. The darker wall colour will make the cupboards and worktops stand out.
Last but not least, your kitchen needs to easy to use. I may dream of the fresh, clean, modern look for my ideal kitchen, but I would definitely pass on an influx of gadgets. When you consider the gadgets you may want in your dream kitchen, for example touch-screen hobs or built in televisions, you need to decide whether those additions may over complicate things. All singing all dancing kitchens are great on paper, but it’s not something I’d want in my home. Call me old fashioned, but a kitchen needs to serve a purpose, touch screens and remote controls don’t belong in a kitchen.
Do you agree? What would your dream kitchen look like? Feel free to share your wish list below, perhaps you’ll inspire other readers!
