Family Kitchen Renovation Five Dock

1, 2, 3 or 4?

When planning your kitchen renovation, it’s important to understand how you’re going to use your kitchen first.   Are you a foodie who likes to explore new cooking techniques or do you like to entertain and make socializing the highlight?  Read on to discover your kitchen personality type and learn what factors are important for you to consider.  More than likely, you’ll identify with more than one type but at least you’ll have some food for thought – pardon the pun 🙂

The MasterChef

Cooking delicious meals is your thing so an efficient kitchen with the latest gadgets is a must. This will include:

  • An Appliance Cupboard to hide away all your cooking appliances.
  • A Pull-out Pantry for easy access to ingredients and lets you see at a glance what you have and what you need.
  • Deep Pot Drawers to store your quality cookware.
  • Stainless Steel Cutlery Organizer so all your utensils have their place and can be located quickly and easily.
  • A Practical layout.  Consider the reliable kitchen triangle i.e. the route between the sink, cooktop and fridge forms a triangle.  This layout increases efficiency which is essential when whipping up your culinary masterpieces!

The Social Butterfly

You love to Entertain so you’ll want:

  • A Breakfast bar or Kitchen Island so everyone can gather around the hub of the home and you won’t miss out on anything whilst prepping for the party.  Both allow for double-sided cabinetry.  Hot tip – use this space for your drinks cabinet so bottles can be accessed from outside the kitchen and no one will get in your way.
  • A Butler’s Pantry is a very handy space to hide any unsightly mess when entertaining.  You’ll also have an extra area to prep and a second sink/dishwasher to speed up those party clean up times.
  • A Wine Fridge is becoming a very popular addition to the kitchen.  It’s a sophisticated solution for storing your reds and whites at the perfect temperature.

The Clean Freak

You thrive when everything is neatly put away and in its place.  You can’t stand dirt, dust and grime and you hate grout lines and porous materials that stain easily.

In the kitchen, the perfect solution for you is:

  • Stone benchtops.  Our unique stone is heat, scratch and stain resistant and can be bonded to your existing benchtop.  This means there is no need for demolition so you don’t have to worry about any mess to clean up.
  • Grout free stone splashbacks.. and don’t worry about the nightmare of chipping away your old tiles.  The same stone surface we use on benchtops can also go straight over existing splashback tiles.
  • Flat Panel and Fingerprint resistant doors.  It’s best to choose flat panel doors so won’t need to worry about dusting the grooves of profile doors.  Ultramatt Acrylic doors or Woodmatt Melamine Doors are your best bet for not showing fingerprints either. Polytec has a wide range of colours which you can mix and match to create some stunning 2 and 3 tone kitchens like the ones below.
  • The trusty Dishwasher.  With all the other cleaning you do around the house, there’s no time for washing up by hand so a dishwasher is a must.  Consider an integrated dishwasher for a seamless finish

The Family Enthusiast

You love all things family and that includes your beloved pet.  Pets have become a treasured member of the family – and sometimes the most loved one too!  Meal times are a family affair so why not consider adding a nifty pet feeding station to your kitchen.  Your furry friend can easily access food and water without being relegated outside or forced to eat in a messy corner of the house.  All your pet supplies like food cans, leads, collars etc can be neatly stored in the overhead cabinets. So convenient!

When it comes to design, It’s likely your style is more timeless than cutting edge modern. A Hampton kitchen design will suit many families. Shaker doors or V-Groove cabinet doors are the perfect choice for Hampton style kitchen cabinets.  They don’t date and being a polyurethane painted door, you’re free to choose any Dulux colour you wish.
