Kitchen Peninsulas

{Weizter} {Kitchens}
As a designer I have noticed a definite switch in design when it comes to replacing the normal kitchen island to a peninsula.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}A Kitchen Peninsula is different from a standalone island in the kitchen. It offers 3 sides of working space and can often save space compared to an island. Peninsulas have become popular due to space saving as well as the element of design.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Kitchen Islands can be attractive, however you do need quite a lot of space for there to be sufficient walking space around the units. Why not choose a peninsula in your kitchen to add more walk room and space that can be used for decorative furniture instead of having a kitchen filled with cabinetry.

Open Plan Kitchens

{Weizter} {Kitchens}Over the past decade, open plan kitchens have become very popular and we have seen architects designing more and more houses with an open plan kitchen concept.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Whilst an open plan kitchen can look attractive it is important to make sure the flow from your kitchen to the dining or lounge areas are done correctly and that the kitchen does not look like an eye sore from the rest of the area. I would recommend that the kitchen dining and lounge areas all complement  each other through flow of colour and texture, it would be recommended that the colour scheme be monochromatic. I would suggest using subtle hints of white, grey and other hues of grey in order to have the correct flow.

The Minimalist Kitchen

{Weizter} {Kitchens}Minimalist kitchens have become very popular due to the simplistic and functional design. When having a consultant design a minimalist kitchen make sure the design allows for the cabinetry to be functional and practical. By opting for a minimal kitchen it will improve your lifestyle by making your daily routine more organised and practical.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Follow these tips to create a minimal look in your kitchen:

Declutter the mess by removing the fruit bowls, toasters, coffee machines and rather opt for Appliance Garage units or built in coffee machines. Keep it simple, have functional specialized cupboard spaces that create a place for everything and everything in its place.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Keep it simple, stick to neutral tones and carry that look throughout the kitchen and living space if the kitchen is open plan. The key to a minimalistic kitchen is to get rid of what you do not use and keep what is essential to running the kitchen on a daily basis. Ditch the extra coffee machines and small appliances that you only use once a year, Rather place them behind a cupboard door and use them only when necessary.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Minimalist kitchens are the epitome of less is more, the minimalistic kitchen defines the space and allows you to feel free and easy to function in the space.

Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg – The New Trend in upmarket Appliances

Continuing the journey that join their artistic feelings to discover the colours and beauty of Sicily to celebrate the authentically ‘Made in Italy’ project under the shared standard of creativity, art, and design. A revolutionary collaboration that has created appliances that reflect art .
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Sicily is my Love is a tribute to Italy’s roots, its traditions and popular festivals in the form of a new freestanding kitchen set and cooker hood with a coordinated fridge, purified unique by bold colours and narrative intensity. The collection is presented in two variants: the first characterised by representations inspired by the Sicilian puppet theatre and the traditional hand-painted cart, where the dominant tones are fiery red and orange, the second by a majolica print in shades of blue and white. The history, culture, cuisine and beauty of the Sicilian landscape are captured in these precious objects in an authentic and unforgettable way, as if the Italian spirit were distilled into noticeable and timeless forms. All of this has been made possible thanks to Smeg’s vast experience in design and quality appliances and the creative soul of Dolce & Gabbana.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Sicily is my Love tells its story through vivid illustrations of golden yellow lemons, citrus fruits, prickly pears, bright red cherries and typical Sicilian decorations are framed by triangular geometric shapes, known as Crocchi: delicate floral motifs are inspired by vegetation and landscapes of Southern Italy, the majolica of Caltagirone, images of Mount Etna, the picturesque ruins of the Greek temple of Castor and Pollux in the Valley of the Temples, and imagery drawn from mythology and the chivalric tradition.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}The collection of small household appliances, Sicily is my Love, is enriched with new pieces made on an industrial scale, through a process of reproduction of hand-painted prototypes created by master Sicilian artists and craftsmen. An American coffee machine, a hand blender and a four-slice toaster will join the Sicily is my Love collection at the 2018 Milan Furniture Fair, expanding upon the existing range which includes a citrus juicer, an electric kettle and a two-slice toaster. Coming soon: a blender, an espresso machine, a stand mixer, and a slow juicer. 
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Add some artistic flair with these appliances and make your kitchen stand out.

Scandinavian Kitchens

1. Simple white spaces
If you want to create a real Scandinavian style kitchen, your best bet is to opt for all white units and general décor. Using a lighter colour scheme will allow much more light to flood in and reflect off the walls, giving the impression of a larger kitchen space. It will also give your kitchen a modern feel and the units will allow much more storage space for those bits you want to store away.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
2. Feature lights
Having hanging lights in your kitchen are all the rage at the moment and many people are opting for these over standard lights or spotlights. There are so many available to suit different kitchen styles, perhaps opt for low hanging cream lights which will give your kitchen character and are also much brighter than standard lighting, or a unique floor lamp in the corner of your kitchen which would add drama to the design.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
3. Wooden flooring
Wooden floors are a must in any kitchen. They are much more practical and they are also a key component in any Scandinavian style kitchen. Other great options are ceramic tiles or stone flags, and both are easy clean options.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
4. Bright furniture
In true Scandinavian style, if you have an all-white themed kitchen the best way to add a pop of colour is by adding various pieces of brightly coloured furniture. For example many people may opt for a Smeg Fridge, houseplants or vibrant coffee machines which add a touch of colour without going over the top. Why not design your own bespoke made-to-measure furniture with some Scandinavian inspired fabric?
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
5. Contemporary art
No Scandinavian kitchen would be complete without adding some wall art into the mix– whether you opt for a large feature canvas or just a simplistic frame with a monochrome image, it adds to the character without over doing it.

Kitchenettes

{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Kitchenettes are areas that can assist you to not go to the main kitchen to make warm or cold beverages or warm up a slice of pizza or your favorite meal. It has become popular to have a kitchenette in your pyjama lounge or cinema areas as you don’t want to disturb your family time just when you need something to drink or eat.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Kitchenettes have also become a must have when planning your guest suite, as you don’t want your guests to be inconvenienced when they simply would just like a cup of coffee or tea or just heat up a fresh scone or muffin. When planning a kitchenette, some must haves are a microwave, prep bowl and a fridge.

Bars

Bars have always been a place for friends to get together and party the night away or for friends and family to get together to discuss past stories.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}The modern bar has combined glass, chrome and accents of wood to keep it natural. When designing a bar it would be important to make sure you have a water point and a basin to rinse glasses and keep the space clean. A bar should consist of fridges, water and a sink, as well as display sections for your priced bottles of alcohol.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}Wine racks as well as glass display sections are also popular to display wine and champagne glasses or whiskey and beer glasses. Seating at a Bar is also vital as it is generally a space that would be occupied by friends and family that would group together and sit in that area.

Shoes have for a long time been the pinnacle to any woman’s closet. The obsession for a closet filled with shoes will be a dream for many clients out there.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
It has also always been an irritation in terms of storage and where they should go without constantly having to unpack the entire cupboard to get your favourite pair of shoes to wear. When it comes to storage of shoes there are many options out there.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}
You could consider pull out chrome shoe racks or pull out drawers, but the most cost effective and the most user friendly option will always be angled shoe shelves, where you can view all the pairs of shoes you have. Floating shelves could also be an option to keep it simple. When designing your closet space, whether against only one wall or in a walk in closet room, it is important to leave ample storage space for shoes.

Wine cellars

Wine cellars have become increasingly popular over the last decade, I have seen a rapid interest in wine cellars whether in a basement or as a room divider. Solid Wood has always been a popular option, however in the past several years we have seen a rapid change in opinion and chrome and metals have been used paired with glass. 
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Wine Cellars that are used as room dividers are popular as it serves as a functional space. When used as a room divider this can be functional as well as aesthetically beautiful. Wine cellars are popular as they can store a vast amount of wine bottles but not limited to wine, I have come across clients who pair their wine in the cellar with whiskeys, champagnes and expensive bottles of cognac.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}While the traditional wine racks in a cellar are classical and will not date, I have found that majority of clients prefer to go with a no fuss simple design that is both contemporary and streamline, with hints of chrome, glass and accents of wood here and there.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}Designing a Wine cellar can be challenging but at Weizter we will design the space to fit your specific needs and desires.

Seating in Kitchens

There are various options when looking at adding seating space in a kitchen. Choose an option that will suite your family and your needs in your kitchen.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Island seating offers various seating heights and can often give you needed additional worktop space. When opting for your seating to be bar stools it is ideal for you to have the counter top be the same height as your other counter top spaces. Additional work space is created when the seating is not in use and the surface would be easy to clean as it is only one surface.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Lowered seating offers an intimate social setting and either a nook or booth option can easily replace a dining room table in a room you never use.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Tables in the kitchen have been done for years and offer a cost effective way to add seating space to a large or small kitchen space. So when redesigning your open plan kitchen consider a breakfast nook or island seating to create a social space you can enjoy cooking in.

Monochromatic Kitchens

Monochromatic kitchens have become popular as they are simple, contemporary and timeless.

{Weizter} {Kitchens}

Monochromatic colour schemes originate from a single base hue and extended using shades, tones and tints. Monochromatic kitchen colour schemes provide a strong sense of visual consistency and can help support communication objectives through the use of connotative colour. The relative absence of hue contrast can be offset by variations in tone and the addition of texture.

{Weizter} {Kitchens}

According to science the true monochromatic images can be strictly created only of shades of one colour fading to black. While the word monochromatic factually means a singular colour, it actually means that the colour will be developed in a few ways to create a liveable space. Neutral colour schemes can also be monochromatic, with variations of a neutral colour.

{Weizter} {Kitchens}

The most attractive and enjoyable way to complete your colour scheme is with texture and print. Texture adds interest to the room through the uneven surface that varies how light hits the surface. A texture can appear light and dark, even when created with the same colour. Fabric Bar stools or a wooded chandelier will add depth and assist in giving added detail to any kitchen using the monochromatic colour scheme. 

{Weizter} {Kitchens}

Neutrals make the best monochromatic schemes. Consider a neutral monochromatic colour scheme for your kitchen to create a space that will be timeless and not overstated.
