What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Maximise light: The brighter a space is, the bigger it will look and feel. If you’re planning on renovating, consider an open-plan living area as it will provide a nice flow throughout the home. Adding in skylights and enlarging windows will also draw in more natural light.6. Pay attention to the kitchen: Plenty of bench space for food preparation and lots of kitchen storage are things you can’t have enough of in a kitchen. A pantry, or even a butler’s pantry if space allows, will add extra value to your property.
Gardiner Architects designed a large, open kitchen with a walk-in pantry and plenty of bench space and storage. The kitchen island has an overhanging benchtop to let kids, family and friends gather around. Deep-blue paint on the rear kitchen wall provides a calm backdrop and demarcates the space.
