If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!

Good Morning!!

So with January moving on nice and swiftly, I have started to think about my own kitchen and the possibilities of changing it. And lets be honest, the vast majority of us will want to play it safe with our kitchen, as we are afraid that we will tire of it. But I just don’t want to play it safe this time. I do however want it to withstand the test of time and not date, but it can still be cool and quirky.

Having done quite a bit of research here are some of my favourite quirky kitchens…..

This is so freaking cool….. Using the idea of a greenhouse indoors, this kitchen is both industrial and quirky. However, if you are daring enough to go for something like this you have to have a large open space, or else it just won’t work.

These two (above) are more up my alley. I love the mix of uber contemporary with rustic and quirky. If you are not brave enough to tile the entire wall, then you could opt for splashback height. These tiles are a real statement piece. I also love the reclaimed timber cladding. I actually did something very similar in a project that I am currently working on, so stay tuned for pics.   

Pic 3Timber is a very typical material to use in a kitchen, however the use of timber in the above kitchen is amazing. It is a very simple technique but very very effective. As much as I like it, I wouldn’t fancy cleaning out all those grooves. 🙂

Pic 4I totally agree that this is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I really love the use of different materials. How often do you see corrugated metal used in an interior.

Pic 5These two kitchen (above) show a great use of mixed materials. This is a really effective way of creating a cool, quirky and individual kitchen. I would only recommend this style if you have a great eye or if you are prepared to get in the professionals……

If you are changing your kitchen down the line, I would urge you to think a little outside the box and don’t just go for the norm.

Be Creative….
