Custom Made Kitchens: Making Your Kitchen Work for You

By September 18, 2015 Uncategorised No Comments

Individualism is one of the biggest design trends defining Australian kitchens today. While we obviously want longevity, quality and good value for money in our kitchen designs, we are also on a quest for personalisation and individuality.

It’s no wonder, then, that custom made kitchens are on the rise.  A custom made kitchen has the ability to strike a balance between the style and function you crave. Every shape, colour, finish and embellishment tells a story about your life, dreams and passions. And it does more than look good; your custom made kitchen solves problems, functions seamlessly, and is built to withstand everything your busy life will throw its way.

Decisions, decisions

To create a kitchen that’s a true extension of your personality, there is an array of decisions to be made. So it pays to think carefully about what you want and need from your custom made kitchen, along with the things you don’t. Work out a list of wishes, wants and needs, then prioritise them thinking about your lifestyle and cost constraints. Ask yourself:

Are you a gourmet cook? (Or do you want to be?)
Do you love entertaining?
Do you have a growing family or are you soon to become empty nesters?
Only once you have identified and prioritised what you want out of your custom made kitchen can you move forward to the really exciting part – the design stage.

Get personal with your custom made kitchens

One of the biggest challenges with individual design is that often you know what you want, but you aren’t sure how to bring it to life. That’s where a Hansen Kitchens comes in. We know how to interpret your personal style and design needs, and bring them to life in a custom made kitchen. It’s what we do best. Your only task is to communicate to us the kind of spaces you feel most comfortable in, your everyday requirements, and precisely where your existing space is letting you down. Hansen Kitchens will guide you through this process with a range of thought-provoking questions. Then, we take that information and use it to create a kitchen that is very, well, you.

Love entertaining? The layout, design and fittings should encourage socialising and put you at the centre of all the fun. Need more family space? Consider an over-sized island to encourage family breakfasts and homework time. Want to merge your indoor and outdoor areas? Look at natural finishes that will flow seamlessly inside out.
