Let’s call it coffee bar by day and wine bar by night! This space pre renovation was a built in desk however our clients felt that a dedicated desk in the kitchen was no longer needed. Needs change as the family evolves!

Design for function ~ This is of the utmost importance in designing a new kitchen. A number of crucial points to consider when designing a kitchen, and not in order of importance as all are equal:

1. Placement of the dishwasher and garbage/recycling centre. Dishwasher to the right of the sink, garbage to the left. Most of us are right handed and this set up works best. It is absolutely crucial that the dishwasher is one side of the sink for rinsing and loading and crucial that the garbage/greens/recycling one the other immediate side.

2. Drawers for all main lower cabinets. Best for storage of plates, pots, pans, etc. Drawers make everything accessible.

3. Symmetry. The range should be in the centre of the main wall if possible. This is generally the focal point of the entire space, make it also centre.

4. The kitchen work triangle is a concept used to determine efficient kitchen layouts that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. The primary tasks in a home kitchen are carried out between the cook top, the sink and the fridge. These three points and the imaginary lines between them make up what kitchen experts call the work triangle. The idea is that when these three elements are close (but not too close) to one another, the kitchen will be easy and efficient to use, cutting down on wasted steps.

These are the most basic however I could go on into finer details such as materials, countertops, faucets, hardware and lighting!
