Timber accents give warmth to this modern, monochrome kitchen, and plenty of storage means no mess! Dall Designer Homes work closely with Kitchens R Us to create a dream kitchen for these homeowners.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
In spaces with taller ceilings, a bulkhead often is used at ceiling height or to fill in the void above the uppers. This also gives the splashback a natural place to finish, so everything looks pleasingly framed and there’s no empty space left to collect knick-knacks and dust.
The key elements of a practical kitchen layoutTo create a functional layout, Welsch says: Remember little upgrades can make a big difference: if you can make your benchtop 100 millimetres deeper than a standard 600 millimetre depth, you’ll gain oodles more prep space. Shorten travel distances between cooking and prep zones as much as possible.Allow sequential activities to happen side by side. Allow for multi-tasking, such as keeping an eye on the stovetop while you’re loading the dishwasher.Store what you need close to the activity, such as pots and pans near the stove, and kettle near the sink. Include features that make cooking, cleaning and entertaining easy, such as a pull-out compost bin next to where you chop vegetables.Allow people to work in the kitchen without having to cross paths.
