classic country kitchen design

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

The classic country kitchen design is immediately recognisable because of distinguishing rustic features that create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

country-kitchen-design

Cooking should always be a pleasure in a country kitchen.

Here are some points to remember:

  • A country kitchen should have a certain charm that is perfect for entertaining friends and family but is also functional for day to day usage.
  • In larger kitchens, it’s a good idea to paint the walls in a bold colour. This immediately creates a warmer feel to the space and adds a country style ambience. In smaller kitchens, the opposite is true. Use neutral colours and lighter tones to open the space up.
  • Country kitchens need floors that are easy to clean, because of all the various messes that tend to get walked through into the house. Stone tiles are perfect, not to mention authentic, but cheaper variations are available.
  • In terms of storage, you should definitely use wooden door cabinets and surfaces. Anything metallic should be considered for a long time before being introduced as it can take away the rustic appeal of the space. Look at the storage you already have. If you can revamp it with new handles and repair it with a little TLC then it can add a really nice touch.
  • If you go to all this trouble to create an authentic looking, efficient country kitchen design then you really don’t want to spoil it with anything less than perfect finishing touches. Vases with fresh flowers and other classic accessories are perfect for a country kitchen. Any modern equipment should be stored out of sight wherever possible, so plan adequate space for this.

Kitchen Cabinets ? A Growing Market for the Perfect Kitchen?

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

The kitchen cabinet is simply a box with a door, usually made of wood that is affixed to the wall of the kitchen. They are prevalent in the kitchen due to the need for storage space and the fact that they can also be stood on the floor and the top affixed with a work surface, maximising storage efficiency.
Kitchen cabinets are produced by a massive variety of companies. Famous companies exist in Canada and Sweden but shopping for kitchen utilities can be done anywhere, so long as you take caution to shop around for a good price. It is becoming prevalent for people to buy things like cabinets in kit form and construct them at home, making transport easier, and simply requiring a little DIY skill. Cabinets of a huge variety of designs and sizes can be found in this form or ready made.
You can find base cabinets, built for the floor, with drawers fixed above the cabinet, two cabinets side by side, tall thin cabinets for kitchens with low floor space, and of course wall mounted cabinets of various shapes. Triangular cabinets that fit snugly into a corner make maximum use of the space and give the shape of the kitchen a smoother look. Some companies make two cabinets one above the other, with a space in between making a small shelf.
To make your kitchen fit your ideals, many cabinet companies produce a variety of special moulding strips for the corners of your cabinets, and panel covers in a different colours. If you can?t find the cabinet you want in a certain colour, you can just customise one with these new covers, or new feet, handles, and plinths, also meaning that the height from the floor is changeable. When buying any cabinets or covers make sure that they are made from durable woods and will be easy to wipe down. Some companies even allow you to order samples, so that you can envision the perfect kitchen without any risk.

Kitchen Planning Basics

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Kitchen Planning Basics

The most important part of buying a new kitchen is the planning. What shape will the kitchen have, how big is the family that will use the kitchen and how often will the kitchen be used? In this part of the site we will take you through all the steps of planning your kitchen so that you can make the best decisions in buying your new kitchen.kitchen-planning-basics.gif

First it is important to choose whether you want a fitted kitchen or a freestanding kitchen. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. If you choose for a fitted kitchen, you will make the most of your space, as all the difficult corners can be hidden and used for storage. You can choose for flat pack, rigid or custom built to suit your needs and budget. A fitted kitchen will also add value to your home, but you can’t take it with you when you move.

 A freestanding or non-fitted kitchen however, gives that individual and informal look you maybe want to give to your kitchen. You can use all kinds of furniture to create the ambiance you prefer. When you move, you can take your furniture with you without a problem and use it again. You have to choose your furniture well though to create as much storage space as in a fitted kitchen.oak-kitchen.gif

On this website, we will mostly take the fitted kitchen as a starting point, but a lot of our storage and design tips will be equally as useful for a freestanding kitchen. And the planning of your new kitchen is of course important whichever style you prefer!

Who will use your kitchen?

 Different people have different lifestyles and since the kitchen is the centre in the house in which the food to live will be prepared, lifestyle is the key to planning a kitchen that works for you. It is obvious that a single person or a couple will have different expectations from their kitchen than families with growing up children. For example, if you’re a single person that eats out a lot, your kitchen will look completely different from a family that takes their evening meals together. Assess your kitchen area accordingly. Plan how much storage space you need for your groceries, cutlery and crockery, which equipment you will use (oven, grill, hob and time saving electrical appliances) and how much seating area you need.

In a small kitchen it is obvious that a large seating area is out of the question, but a small breakfast table might just fit in. In a big kitchen, the seating area will take a big part of the space. Decide which part of the kitchen area you want to commit to seating and work your kitchen around it. There are a lot of handy storage solutions to maximize your space in the storage section.

Traditional Kitchens

These kitchens have very traditional wood cabinetry and stone and/or wood counters. This is often the first thing people think of when they think “kitchen.” It is a classic way to redesign a kitchen and it has a long lifespan. Often if you go with a more traditional look it will stay stylish longer and does not need quite as much done to freshen its look later.

Kitchen Storage Tips

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Providing convenient and suitable storage for small, large and variously-shaped kitchen tools and equipment is one of the most important aspects of kitchen planning.

Whether you choose to have enclosed cupboards, or open shelves , the important thing is that everything should be easily seen, accessible and in the most convenient place.

kitchen-storage-tips1.bmp

Shelving

Open shelving

is cheap and easy to install, and suits people who like the look of their kitchen equipment and use it often. Shelves can be fitted where cupboards cannot, (for example, in front of windows, on the backs of cupboard doors, under sloping ceilings and in small recesses). An up-and-over shelf can also be fitted so that a heavy piece of equipment, such as a food processor, can sit in a cupboard and swing out, when required. Shelves can also be of different depths. Wider shelves are good for large plates, jugs and bowls, but it is useful to have some narrow shelves. One narrow shelf, running along the wall about 12 inches above the worktop and above any electric sockets, is indispensable for jars of herbs and spices and any other small items, which would get lost on deep shelves.

kitchen-storage-tips2.bmp

Cupboards

Enclosed cupboards can be very dominant in a kitchen and will usually set the style for the whole room. You can choose the simplest wooden, Shaker-style design and paint it, or you can have an elaborate, molded wooden kitchen in a dark stain and in between these, there are many variations of wooden, veneered or plastic-finished kitchens to choose from. If you plan carefully, you should not have to cover every wall with cupboards. It is often more pleasant to have some open wall space to hang a picture on, or to act as your home office. Having too many cupboards simply means you can shove things into them, which you don’t need and never even glance at. For a narrow kitchen where cupboard doors may open straight into your face, you can get cupboards with sliding doors, but these can be irritating to use and small things can often get hidden behind them.

Plan the interiors of cupboards carefully. A narrower shelf fitted inside a cupboard will mean that you have room to hang a set of shelves on the back of the cupboard door, which can be a more convenient way of storing small items. Low cupboards are easier to use if the shelves pull out on runners, so you can see what’s on them. Wire basket shelves will prevent things from rolling off. If the kitchen is next to the eating area, equipment for eating and table laying can be kept in a double-sided peninsula unit, to make more efficient use of the area.

Drawers

Drawers are among the most useful forms of storage. They can be any depth and size: shallow for linen, table mats and cutlery, square for dry foods and smaller items such as string and labels, and deep for upright bottles, saucepans, a basket or waste bin.

You can buy standard drawers and design the interior for a specific purpose (for example, fill them with wire baskets for vegetable storage, bottles and jars or laundry). Very narrow drawers, fitted with wire shelves, are available as part of some ranges of kitchen units, which can store nearly all your tins and dry foods in a very compact space. Such units can be short in height to fit next to an under-the-worktop refrigerator, or tall to fit next to a large refrigerator-freezer or indeed into any spare, narrow space in the kitchen.
