It can’t be stressed enough how important your kitchen is to the design and aesthetic of your home. You need to treat it as the nucleus of the house and design the rest of the property around it. There are a lot of changes you can make to your kitchen. Many of them will add value to the property. All of them will be vast improvements on the kitchen itself. Here are nine fabulous ideas for improvements you can make to your kitchen.

1. New Oven

The most eye-catching part of the kitchen is the oven. This is where the magic happens. It’s where the cooking takes place. It’s something that we can’t help but be drawn to as soon as we step into the room. As such, it’s important to have an oven that’s attractive and eye-catching, but also, one that’s practical. It needs to cook things in an efficient way, and it needs to get as hot as possible. It’s got to be durable too. You need to make a decision about whether you want to use a gas or electric oven.

2. Wine Cooler

If you’re something of a wine connoisseur, you might like to keep several bottles in the house at any one time. And you’ll want somewhere to display them. Sure, you could keep them on the side, but this looks unattractive. Not to mention the fact it takes up a lot of space. What you want is something trendy and useful. Take a look at some wine coolers and pick out a type that fits with your kitchen. It needs to be the right sort of design and colour to fit in with the aesthetic of the kitchen.

3. Breakfast Bar

Something that few people will have in their kitchen is a breakfast bar. But this can add an extra dimension, and make the room look fantastic. Now, this will be easier to do if you have an open plan kitchen, as it fits in much more easily with the open design. Breakfast bars are a great addition to any modern kitchen. It’s nice to have an area of the kitchen where you can sit on a comfortable stool and enjoy breakfast. It gives you somewhere to eat, work or be sociable all in the same place.

4. Storage Space

Make sure you don’t overlook the importance of storage space. Kitchens need a lot of items to be functional. For a start, you’re going to need places to store the food. But, more important than this you need storage space for pots & pans, cutlery and utensils. All this can take up quite a bit of space. It might be a good idea to make modifications to the cupboards and drawers to create more space storage space.

5. Colour Scheme

If you want to make your kitchen look different but you don’t want to spend a lot of money you could think about changing the colour scheme. This can have a much more substantial impact than you’d think. Try to go for bright, vibrant colours that will make the room look larger and more inviting. Adding colours to your kitchen can inject some character and personality into proceedings. Don’t be afraid to get creative.

6. Make it Open Plan

If you don’t have an open plan kitchen already, you need to get one installed as soon as you can. Open plan kitchens are much more preferable to regular kitchens. They’re larger, more spacious and more airy. They’re also more efficient. When you spend a lot of time cooking in the kitchen, you need to ensure you’re not cramped and uncomfortable. By going for an open plan design, you turn the kitchen into the social hub of the home.

7. Change the Floors

Next up, you need to assess the flooring situation in the kitchen. Where possible, you should go for the most durable, practical and appealing option. And for most people and most kitchens this is going to be hardwood flooring. With hardwood floors, you no longer have to worry about staining, spillages, or wear and tear. Get your floors taken up and replace them with hardwood floors as soon as you can.

8. Replace Worktops

You might also want to think about replacing the worktops in and around the kitchen. This is for reasons similar to the flooring situation. You want to have durable and strong work surfaces. They need to be the sort that are perfect for preparing food. But they also need protection against damage. Going for something like a granite work surface is perfect for the kitchen. It looks brilliant; it’s dependable and will improve the look of the kitchen.

9. Put a Table In

Something else you can do that won’t cost much money, but might have a significant effect, is putting a table in the kitchen. This will, of course, only be possible if you have a large enough kitchen to do so. But, it’s a great idea because it’ll turn your kitchen into a dining room as well. It makes the place much more sociable. And you’ll be able to enjoy meals with family and friends much more easily.
