The kitchen is the heart of the home and is the place where food is being prepared. Because of that, we could say that it is the busiest part of the house since we consume food every day. But in order to work well, the kitchen should be well-designed and should fit the needs of the one who use it. It should fit the cook’s flow of work as well as cooking processes. Good traffic flow needs to be observed in the kitchen so that it will be useful and functional and be ready to serve its purpose.

Family Friendly Kitchen's

A place where meals are prepped, homework is reviewed and family and friends gather. Having a family-friendly kitchen is doable with the right vision and planning. If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen to accommodate a growing family, here are ideas to help you design and organize.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}Develop an open floor concept An open floor layout allows you to keep an eye on kids while working in the kitchen, is great for entertaining and increases natural light in the space. Having a small home doesn’t mean an open floor concept isn’t possible; in fact, these floor plans usually work well in homes with less square footage, making the space feel much larger. Plan for storage and appliance arrangement. Be sure to think about including ample storage space, extra drawers and appliance locations. Consider where you might want to place an island, bar stool seating, cabinets, pantries, doorways, sinks and electrical outlets based on how your family will use the space. If you’re having a hard time envisioning how all of those pieces will work together, our skilled space experts and interior designers can help you figure out the best possible layout for your new kitchen.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Choose materials for your floors and counters that make cleaning up spills and messes easier for you by choosing the right materials for your lifestyle. Pick a laminate flooring that cleans up with a damp mop or rag or wood floors with a matte, nonskid finish that will withstand heavy wear and tear. Laminate countertops or natural stone with a strong sealant will provide good durability and are easy to clean. Make your appliances kid-friendly Having your appliances in kid-friendly locations are a great way to make your kitchen more functional. Consider placing the microwave on a lower shelf instead of above the range—this way, kids won’t be trying to reach above the hot stove and allows them easy access to use the microwave to reheat snacks. Refrigerator drawers are a popular feature in homes today; keep kids’ snacks in there for convenient access. If you have very young kids, look for appliance models with child lock settings or extra safety features. Include an activity zone Having a space designated to homework or hanging out in your kitchen allows for the family to be together in one room without being too crowded. A low counter or bar on the side of the kitchen creates a great space to have your family hang out in the kitchen while doing more than just cooking or eating.

Be mindful of where to place electrical outlets and shelving to ensure that there is space for kids to work on their activities or homework. Feature a meal-mapping center To help keep the family organized, dedicating a corner or wall for a meal-mapping or notes center is a great feature to include in your kitchen. Consider hanging a chalkboard, bulletin board or large calendar in that area to help keep the grocery checklist, coupons and recipes organized. Equipping your home with a family-friendly kitchen is an investment that will benefit your family for years.

Galley Kitchens

When you live in a city, galley kitchens are a reality. They’re everywhere. If you don’t have one, one of your friends probably does. Galley kitchens present a unique set of challenges because of their limited space and aisle-style layout. This can make using the space a huge pain, especially if the original layout isn’t conducive to cooking with ease.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}{Weizter} {Kitchens}
A galley kitchen doesn’t have to be your nightmare kitchen. With proper workflow and the right design, it could become the kitchen of your dreams. Galley Kitchens Are Not a Design Choice Not many people choose a galley kitchen on their own. The kitchen works in the space, but not so much for the people who end up living there.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}The Biggest Complaint? The Lack of Storage, The constricting space means that your storage options are limited. For people who have a lot of cookware, a galley kitchen often won’t have the room for it. Design Solutions for Your Galley Kitchen The stove should also be close to the serving area, and the fridge close to the sink. This gives you a more seamless transition between collecting, prepping, cooking, and serving. If your family has a host of culinary fanatics, or even if the chef just needs a little help with prep, a galley kitchen can propose some problems. There is a lot of back and forth and members of the family will get in each other’s way, make sure there are dedicated spaces in which you can prepare beverages without interfering with the cook.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}To compensate for the extra people in the restricted space, I recommend scattering the appliances further apart. Arranging your appliances for the space will let everyone have a little more room to negotiate.

Custom Television Units

{Weizter} {Kitchens}The heart of your TV life is likely the living room. However, if your household is like most others, you probably have a TV in the bedroom, as well. Some people perch their TVs on top of dressers or side tables, but this isn’t ideal. Attractive media storage is equally important in every room. This is especially true in your bedroom, a space that should be a calm and well-organized sanctuary.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}To tame cords and keep TV paraphernalia under control in your sleeping space, opt for a sleek and attractive entertainment unit instead of furniture that was designed for other purposes. Even if your bedroom isn’t large, there’s always room for a compact and lowline TV unit to keep things stylish and sane. Whether your space is big or small, contemporary or more traditional, you’ll be able to find a TV unit that perfectly accents it. Especially if you are switching from a piece of furniture that wasn’t designed with media in mind to a modern entertainment unit, you’ll be amazed at the difference.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
From a stressful and cluttered mess to sleek and organized sanity, a TV unit will make rotting your brain an absolutely enjoyable experience.

Kitchens with Accent Walls

Choosing paint colours can be a time-consuming and frustrating process when there are so many shades to choose from. The good news is that are certain colours that work best in specific rooms. When it comes to kitchens, white, grey, blue, red, yellow, and green really shine. Each of these shades can do something different for the room, but they all help create a warm and welcoming space.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Warmer colours such as red are believed to stimulate the appetite and are an excellent option for kitchens. Red is incredibly versatile and there are multiple shades that would really pop in a kitchen, either on the cabinets or the walls. Most people start their days in their kitchens, and white can really energize a room. It feels fresh and clean, and an all-white kitchen will really wake you up the minute you step in it. You can also have more fun with your countertops and backsplash in an all-white kitchen and choose brighter colours or designs for those.

Grey is a neutral that's been taking centre stage lately in many homes. It often gets categorized as being too cold, but with the right shade, it can work wonders in a kitchen. Best of all, it pairs beautifully with a wide array of other colours and is the perfect base to build upon in a kitchen. It also works well as a countertop or cabinet colour.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Blue is another colour that works well in kitchens. When lighter shades of blue are used, they can create a crisp, clean look and are recommended for walls, cabinets, or even the ceiling. Blue is an invigorating colour and works best when used sparingly; otherwise it can overpower a room. Dark blues also work well in kitchens, but it's important to accent the rest of the room with hints of white, grey or other neutral tones to keep it from feeling too intense and dark.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
Like a ray of sunshine, yellow can instantly brighten up a room. Also believed to make people hungry, yellow has a soothing quality and will instantly make people feel calm and happy in your kitchen. A good option for small spaces, yellow can make rooms feel bigger and brighter, and it pairs well with white and grey accents. Green is also a smart shade to use in the kitchen. There are many different shades to choose from including mint and apple green, which pair nicely with white and wood accents. If you're willing to be more adventurous, try emerald green.

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.

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.

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.
