Bold modern colours make a strong statement and can reflect your bright personality, whilst timber and earthy tones create a cosy and homely atmosphere. "Stainless steel surfaces and open shelves combined with freestanding units and trolleys re-create the feel of a commercial kitchen. "If you are thinking of selling your property in the near future, 'safe' colours and finishes such as neutral colours and tones attract and appeal to a broader range of buyers." 4. Functionality The perfect kitchen design will cater for all of your needs. "When planning your kitchen there are five work zones to consider," Murray said. A: The food storage area including the fridge and pantry. B: The preparation area including a mix of deep and shallow drawers to cater for mixing bowls, pots, pans and preparation utensils. C: The cooking area consisting of the oven, cooktop and more drawers to hold the cooking utensils. D: The cleaning zone covering the sink, tap, bins and dishwasher E: The serving area including another mix of shallow and deep drawers for crockery and cutlery. 5. Appliances Appliances have moved ahead in leaps and bounds over the past few years, with the average Australian working longer and harder than ever before. Our cooking appliances are getting smarter. "The latest in appliances include self-cleaning ovens (pyrolytic) and energy-saving electric cooktops (induction) that are three times quicker then gas," Murray said. "Fisher & Paykel continue to come up with great ideas including the dishwashing drawers and now the 'Cool Drawer' (fridge drawers)." Appliances can be used as a feature or, if you are going for the 'less is more' approach, then appliances can disappear behind kitchen panels with integrated dishwashers, fridges and rangehoods now available.
