When considering benchtops for your kitchen, finding a surface that is easy to clean and maintain is very important, especially if there is a number of people using the space. Quartz tops from Caesarstone® are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and are highly scratch, stain and heat resistant. Alternatively, our premium laminates are equally worth considering. They come in a wide variety of colours at an affordable price, are low maintenance, and are easy to clean, making them a practical and economical solution.
Design tip: Choosing the right edge profile for your new Freedom Kitchen will not only add the finishing touch to your kitchen style and look, but certain options are highly suited to family-centric kitchens. We love pencil round and bullnose edges in particular!
4. Include an island bench.
Kitchens these days are designed around not only cooking but gathering, doing homework and spending time together. Island benches offer stylish and functional preparation space in your kitchen and allow your area to flow beautifully and easily. But most importantly, they create a beautiful gathering space for your family or guests when you’re entertaining. Islands also allow you to maximise storage which is essential in a hardworking family kitchen!
Design tip: Add power points to your island bench as it will allow devices to be charged, allowing members of your family to complete work and homework in the kitchen.
5. Create your perfect pantry.
Whether butler’s, walk-in or a simple unit, a well-thought-out and designed pantry can not only add value to your kitchen, it has the power to transform how you use it as well!
More than just a storage area for food items; your pantry can also house kitchen and household essentials such as small kitchen appliances, serving ware, and cookware. If you have the space for a butler’s pantry, it can become a mini-kitchen in its own right where you can hide away mess, prep food and enjoy additional appliances.
Design tip: Adding internal storage accessories such as our Internal Wire Drawers maximise storage in a pantry space and work well in any sized pantry. They’re also great for packing full of goodies for the younger family members – giving them the autonomy to pick their own snacks.
