Sure, kitchens have historically been primarily the food preparation work space. But kitchens today now serve as the multi- tasking hub of the home: part living and dining room, part family space, and part entertainment area. So when you decide to update your kitchen, there are a few guiding principles to keep in mind, Murray Dell, of Vogue Kitchens, said. 1. Design for practicality When it comes to the modern kitchen, less is definitely more. Stone benchtops are covered in little clutter, and cupboards and drawers are flush with no handles. Drawers come in a range of designs and sizes with pot drawers, corner drawers, under-sink drawers, and combined cutlery and utensil drawers of the opening a gamut of storage opportunities and ease of access that has never been available before. With improvements in design, drawers now fully extend displaying everything and with some impressive organiser inserts. "Over 90 per cent of the kitchens we do these days have soft closing drawers and doors," Murray said. "Automatic touch control drawers are the latest trend especially for kitchens opting for a handle-free look". 2. Know your style When designing a new kitchen, always take into account your style and the style of the remainder of the home.

"At the opposite end of the spectrum, a traditional kitchen with glass cupboards, panelled doors and granite benchtops is a timeless look for the more classic home." Timber-veneer doors and feature panels are also showing up in the modern designed kitchens. "Do you want your kitchen to form an integral part of your home or do you want your kitchen to stand out as a special feature from the other aspects of your home?"
