The kitchen is often known as the heart of the home. As the saying goes, “A family that eats together, stays together”. Memories are created in the kitchen and seasoned with love and laughter. Homeowners today are increasingly adventurous in the design and customisation of their kitchens to make them unique places for families and friends to gather and bond over cooking sessions. The modern homeowner’s kitchen has gone beyond being a place for the preparation of food to a place of class, entertainment and enjoyment.
Beautiful apartments often feature open-concept kitchens. Having an open-concept kitchen connects the kitchen to the dining area and living room, enhancing the overall space in the house. Simple contrasting colours such as black and white create a sleek and clean look that complements a classy stove and elegant hood perfectly. Put together, they create a harmonious environment in which to perfect delightful culinary creations for waiting family members.
Smart designing of concealed compartments in the kitchen for the storage of utensils, cookware, sauces and appliances such as the microwave oven, allows modern homeowners the ability to have a fully-functional kitchen with an exclusive taste. Many kitchen designers today incorporate touch latches with a soft close function into built-in drawers. Apart from allowing ease of movement and raising overall safety in the kitchen, they also enhance the aesthetic beauty of the kitchen.
The use of statement pieces such as a coffee machine, wine rack or designer clock adds to the tastefulness of the kitchen. Mood lighting and motion sensors work well in the kitchen to create a sense of sweet relaxation. Fresh flowers in the kitchen add a dash of colour, while coupling them with a fruit or nut bowl gives family and friends something to snack on in the midst of cooking. A cracker and cheese platter, savoured with a glass of self-mixed strawberry champagne, keeps hunger at bay, brings on the smiles and allows socialising in the kitchen.
Modern homeowners are setting their sights and tastebuds on one-of-a-kind kitchens for their daily cooking pleasure as well as to amaze their guests during meal gatherings. Some countries experience the four seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter. In the kitchen, however, there is only one season – the season of love. Bon appétit!
