One of the great love affairs people have with their homes is in their kitchen, especially if you love cooking. When designing your new kitchen, factors such as island placement, countertop space, and cabinet design, all need to be considered for the cooks at heart. What about those of us, however, who aren't into cooking that much? How do we design our kitchens? Here are some ideas:
Make coffee your priority
If you’re not using your kitchen counter space for food prep, but instead have a passionate love of coffee, why not turn your kitchen into an at-home cafe? Transforming your kitchen into your own personal coffee bar complete with espresso machine, unique mug collection, and all the coffee trimmings can help you define and make use of your space. You’ll also save time and money in the morning when you are able to make your favorite coffee drinks in the convenience of your own kitchen.
Wine it up
Coffee not your thing? A passion for wine can be showcased just as well, if not better, than a passion for coffee. Your kitchen is the perfect sanctuary for displaying your wine collection. Whether you are a connoisseur or simply love a variety of table wine, installing a temperature regulated wine cooler in your kitchen is a great statement piece in place of the usual cooking must-haves. If you’re struggling with kitchen design, you can also install some wine racks or displays, making it easy for you to indulge in a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Design for your passion
If coffee and wine aren’t amongst your favorites, you probably still have a passion or two that can be put on display in your kitchen. If you love to read, you can turn a wall of your kitchen into a library and reading nook. If you’re a gardener, consider designing a kitchen that is airy and full of sunlight, allowing your houseplants to thrive.
