*Dream Kitchen Ideas with Stormer Kitchens

Wednesday, February 27, 2019
If you follow me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) you'll have seen that we've been renovating the bathrooms over the past couple of months and it's started my 'spring is here so we need to spring clean everything' mood which also involves renovating and updating the house. I've always loved interior design and since becoming a blogger and freelance writer that has just increased! 

There are quite a few aspects of the house that I'd like to alter, whether it's simple things like lighting, touch ups and adding new plants to renovating the conservatory and updating the garden. The kitchen was renovated completely back in 2017 but while you may like certain aspects of a new room initially, over time you might find items or the placement of appliances etc to be not quite right. There are definitely aspects of the kitchen that I'd change and today's post is all about my ultimate dream kitchen! 

Unique Lighting 
Firstly, unique lighting! I am not a fan of those very popular spotlights (which we do have) as I think they look so boring, the light is usually quite harsh and it isn't the best for photography (yes, it's something I'm always thinking about). I love the hanging lighting in the kitchen above, I think it looks strikingly unique and far nicer than bright spotlights that cast harsh shadows. 

Designing your own kitchen will be a relatively expensive undertaking, depending on your preferences and the size of your kitchen but it doesn't have to be difficult. Stormer Kitchens offer a range of kitchen styles all of which can be adapted so you can easily create your dream kitchen. 
Clean Gloss & Natural Tones 
If you read any of my interior design or redecorating posts then you'll probably know that I'm not one for bright colours, my preferred colour scheme features natural, neutral shades mixed with various textures such as wooden, metal and glossy textures. Thankfully our kitchen has all of those aspects as it's filled with creamy, grey and oak shades as well as stainless steel, wooden and canvas textures which I love. 

In a kitchen I love glossy units and clean, natural shades as to me, it makes the space look inviting and homely but also sleek, clean and timeless. Although I do have admit that I also like the cliche French country kitchen style too with neutral shades and rustic features. If I were able to create my dream kitchen, without worrying about money at all, then it would probably include a combination of French farmhouse rustic units and furniture with neutral tones, natural textures and modern technology such as induction hobs as well as integrated appliances. 
Integrated Appliances & Island Unit 
Speaking of integrated appliances, we have all of ours integrated into our kitchen and I love it! The only integrated unit we don't have is the bin as an integrated aspect of the kitchen and I think that would have been a great idea to not only free up a little more kitchen floor space but also to remove a bit of an eyesore from the room too. 

Last but not least, while we do have a kitchen island (and it's an amazing feature), I think it would have been even better to integrate a hob into the island so it's a more efficient use of the space. Stormer Kitchens has a great range of examples of how to use an island space in the most efficient and space saving way such as adding a sink, hob, storage or even a little seating area to a kitchen island - the latter point is something we didn't think of at the time and now I wish we had! 

What do you think of these kitchen design ideas? What would your dream kitchen include?
