When you build your dream home with Sienna Homes, you have the unique opportunity to design your kitchen layout to suit your lifestyle and preferences. Our Design Review process empowers you to choose from a wide range of kitchen options, from storage solutions to bench configurations, ensuring that your kitchen becomes the heart of your home. Here are some valuable tips to help you create a functional and stylish kitchen space that you’ll love.
Consider Your Cooking Style
Think about how you use your kitchen. Are you a culinary enthusiast who loves to experiment with recipes? Or perhaps you prefer quick and easy meals? Your cooking style will influence your kitchen layout. For avid chefs, prioritize ample counter space and storage for gadgets. For the busy home cook, an efficient layout with easy access to essentials is key.
Storage Solutions Galore
Sienna Homes offers a variety of storage options, so take full advantage. Consider pot drawers for easy access to cookware, bin drawers for efficient waste disposal, wine racks for connoisseurs, and open shelving for a touch of style and practicality. Don’t forget about pantry options to keep your dry goods organized and accessible.
Island Bench Versatility
An island bench can transform your kitchen into a multifunctional hub. Whether it’s a spot for meal prep, casual dining, or even homework with the kids, think about how you’ll use it. Sienna Homes offers various island bench configurations to match your needs and space. You can design the configuration of your island bench in consultation with our design
Proper lighting is crucial in the kitchen. Consider task lighting under cabinets for food prep, pendant lights above the island for a touch of ambience, and well-placed fixtures to illuminate your entire workspace. A well-lit kitchen is not only functional but also inviting. We can arrange a consultation with Beacon Lighting to create your perfect lighting plan.
Colour Palette and Materials
Once your kitchen layout is sorted, it’s time to choose your colour palette and materials. During your colour selection appointment with our Interior Designer, you can select laminates, engineered stone benchtops, or porcelain benchtops that match your style. Pay attention to how these choices complement your overall home design.
Handles and Appliances
The devil is in the details. Select handles that match the aesthetic you want to achieve – whether it’s modern, traditional, or somewhere in between. Don’t forget to consider appliance choices too. Opt for appliances that not only look great but also meet your cooking needs.
Workflow and Flow of Space
Think about the workflow in your kitchen. The “kitchen triangle” – the relationship between the stove, sink, and refrigerator – should be efficient, allowing you to move seamlessly while cooking. Make sure your chosen layout facilitates this flow.
Lastly, add personal touches that make the kitchen truly yours. This could be a statement splashback, a unique kitchen island, or open shelving to display your favourite cookbooks or collectibles.
