Fresh Kitchen Extension Ideas
The time for conventional kitchens just ended. Home owners are now looking for a kitchen that is both functional and efficient, a kitchen that can be turned in to a “eat in” kitchen. Modern kitchens are no longer just a place where you cook, it is a place where you can entertain and even become a place to relax. It is no surprise why more and more home owners are moving towards a makeover – to make their kitchen a showcase of themselves.
Here are some great Kitchen Extension Ideas to a more modern and functional kitchen in your home.
Kitchen Extension ideas – Why not try a Greenhouse theme?
Do you love gardening and cooking? Why not try to mix them two together? During a Kitchen makeover is the perfect time to put in a garden in the kitchen. Designate an area in your kitchen, put in a seed bed or a raised bed for a nursery where you can grow vegetables. If you are really concerned about the environment, go to the next level. Add a water filter and the excess water you collected can be used to water your indoor garden or even flush the toilet. Include glass walls or a glass roof to ensure your plants get enough sun or lighting. Forget about the grocers or your backyard. Your fresh veggies are just within your reach.
Check out all the space!
This is ideal if you are working with a minimal space in your kitchen extension, you can actually add pantry style storages. Make every big part of your kitchen count. Instead of using a regular 4 leg table, use a block table counter where the bottom of the table can be used for storage. You can put in drawers. You can also use hanging cabinets so that no bulk cabinets are seen. Having a lot of storage space will allow you to keep unnecessary paraphernalia hidden providing your kitchen more surface space.
Kitchen Extension ideas – Retro Diner
Make your kitchen into a dining room. Add stools your cooking are will be a bar that will serve as a table. After all the preparation and cooking is done, clean up and set up for dinner. This is perfect for couples or families on the go. An area made for both functionality and convenience.
Kitchen Extension ideas – It’s Pure Steel
Try a kitchen of steel. This reminds me of an episode from a cartoon. The cabinets made of glass and steel, the tops made of stainless steel. Add a glossy black floor and your kitchen is ready for the future. This look is ultra modern and gives a high tech feel. Add glass doors to cabinets and kitchen door to add more space.
These are just few of the many styles you can try. The important thing about the makeover is it should express you! Good luck!
