Planning your Kitchen

Do you love your kitchen?  Should you love your kitchen?  We think so.  It’s one of the most used rooms in any given home.  It’s often referred to as the heart of the home.  It’s where we prepare our tasty gourmet delights, or a quick feed while we are on the run.  A well-designed kitchen can save you time, save your legs, your back and even your wallet.

We thought we would go through what makes good kitchen design.

Here are some important considerations:

It’s important that the kitchen ties in well with the other living areas of your home.

Kitchen layout needs to be a very well thought out process, that occurs prior to design and colour choices. Design an efficient layout around the users and the tasks that they do on a daily basis – list your favourite and most cooked meals to work out what appliances you need. Choose appliances for how you use them over how they look.

There is a lot of new development and expansion happening across Sydney, we’ve seen the plans advertised on television, through our local communities and you only need to take a drive around Sydney to see growth is happening under our very noses.

I know that my backyard in the Hills District of Sydney is definitely experiencing the growth pains. With new housing developments underway at The Ponds, The Gables, The Hills of Carmel and Halcyon Rise at Box Hill, along with continued development around Rouse Hill, even out toward Windsor at Vermont is experiencing growth. This is obviously great for the building industry.

 

Building a home can be an exciting and stressful experience all at the same time. There is so much to consider, many decisions to be made, negotiations, liaising with various

Our dream home is built, but they didn’t furnish my interior!!

I visited Homeworld at Kellyville recently as I have had a number of my clients say they want the interiors of their newly built homes to have the same feel as the display homes at Homeworld.

The new homes that are being built around the Hills District of Norwest Sydney, in The Ponds, Stanhope Gardens, Kellyville, Rouse Hill,  Bella Vista, Glenhaven areas are an excellent example of quality cutting edge design and lifestyle friendly living.

I found a lot of the builders have tried to create a point of difference in their home designs which means a greater range of options are available to home buyers.  A few that I discovered were the addition of cloakrooms in the foyers of Sekisui Houses homes, these were a well thought out inclusion, as often people now like to store their shoes and jackets, sports equipment in a common area.  The family living area that incorporates outdoor entertaining really captures our Australian way of life and is now seen as standard in these new homes and also gives increase use of our Aussie backyard but the outworking of this vary with each home design.

What happens when you finish building your brand new home, move in and realise that your reality doesn’t match your ideal (that beautiful display home that first gave you the desire to build in the first place)? You think – – ‘Our dream home is built, but they didn’t furnish my interior!!’ I’m still sitting on the same lounge, dining at the same table, sleeping in the same bed and it all looks the same but just in a different location.  You feel frustrated because of the gap between your home and the display home.
