Probably the most used room in the house, the kitchen is the heart of many homes. When thinking of kitchen interior design, there are so many things to consider before choosing colours and furniture. 

It is essential to get the flow of the space, location of the appliances and work surfaces right to make sure the space is functional, safe and suits your needs.

Here’s what you’ll need to consider when designing your ideal kitchen:

•    Space planning and traffic flow
•    Preparation areas and task lighting
•    Plenty of sockets and charging points for small appliances and gadgets

Kitchen interior design considerations

Interior design isn’t just about deciding between a traditional country kitchen or an ultra-modern cooking space. That said, it’s a good start. From an aesthetic point of view, there is an array of colour schemes, from monochrome and natural wood to timeless greens, blues and neutral shades.

Digging a little deeper, you’ll want to put plenty of thought into storage. Where will things go? Do certain cupboards need to be deeper to store pans, for example? Do you want unique storage options like pan hooks, floating shelves or a pull-out wine rack?

This should be considered alongside preparation space. A kitchen island is a sought-after feature to add more countertop space, for example, working particularly well as part of a kitchen-diner. Lighting then needs to complement the layout, function and appearance of your kitchen to create a space that’s safe and stylish.
