{Partnered Post} Edinburgh Kitchen Company Limited – Creating A Beautiful and Stylized Kitchen

Let’s face it, the kitchen is the most functional room in your home, and it is not renowned as a location that generates excitement or considerable interest. This does not mean that you cannot transform it into a beautiful and stylised space within your home, however, as this can create an additional wow factor that only adds to the underlying value of your property. Considering the amount of time that you spend in your kitchen preparing and making food, it stands to reason that you should enhance this environment as much as possible.

How to Create a Stylish and Yet Practical Kitchen

With this in mind, the key is to focus on developing a stylish kitchen that is still able to meet its most functional requirements. Consider the following components as being integral to this process:

1. Lighting: Your choice of lighting is particularly crucial, and not just because it prevents you from using sharp knives in the dark. In fact, clever and intricate lighting can be used to create the illusion of space in small kitchens, while also optimizing the finish of work surfaces and cabinets. One of the most prominent contemporary trends is for the implementation of spot lights underneath units or within the plinth, as this create subtle and unique lighting that adds also adds a new practical dimension to your kitchen.

2. Floor to Ceiling Storage: Another key trend in modern design is the development of floor to ceiling storage, and this reflects the drive to create increasingly creative space management solutions. The key benefit of these solutions is that they minimize the amount of surface clutter in your kitchen, optimizing its appearance while also ensuring that it can be used as a safe and practical work space. For those who prefer a minimalist approach to design, floor to ceiling storage represents a sensible and practical option.

3. The Fitting of a Kitchen Island: While kitchen islands are nothing new, their application is only just beginning to take of in residential properties. These fixtures not only represent another example of a flexible storage solution, but they also boast an extremely versatile range of designs and create a definite wow factor in any kitchen. A kitchen island also boasts dual-functionality to consumers, as it can be used to entertain guests and also store widely used utensils and items. Above all, it can be an enduringly stylish addition to your existing kitchen space.

The Last Word

In order to strike this elusive balance between form and function, you will need to partner with a reputable provider of quality fixtures and fittings. Whether you are seeking  kitchens in Fife, Glasgow or throughout the UK, it is absolutely pivotal that you prioritize quality over any other potential consideration.

Marble Title Background | Marble Wallpaper (€67.50) | Marble Pastry Board ($130) | Michael Kors Marble Print Dress ($1013) | Marble Salt Box ($26) | Vintage Marble Lamps ($695/2) | Marble Cake Stand ($128) | Marble Butter Keeper ($16) | Marble Print Flats ($78) | Marble Rolling Pin ($90) | Marble Cheese Board With Slicer ($13) | Marble Mortar & Pestle ($14-25) | Marble Cord Necklace (£28) | Saarinen Round Dining Table ($1800-4645) | Marble Fruit Bowl ($50)

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of marble. Since getting our new home, I’ve been obsessing about the stuff and I want every antique marble table or marble top dresser we come across. I don’t know what it is. Its beautifully natural pattern, its cold smoothness, or maybe even the thoughts of rolling out pie dough on a cold winter’s day. I just can’t get enough of it these days. I was lucky enough to get a marble pastry board from my bff one year that has a permanent place on my counter for when the baking (or cold stone-ing) urge hits. Now I was to deck out the rest! (If marbling in the colorful graphic sense is more your thing, check out this past daydream post!)

{Collecting Rainbows} Rainbow Chopsticks

One of things I get most excited about during the holidays besides spending time with loved ones is my mom’s cooking back in my hometown. It’s so fun to go a couple of days early to help her prep for the celebration dinner. I’m looking forward to these celebrations in our new home some day and I’d love to have a set of these rainbow chopsticks ($35) so that guests can pick their own pair to use throughout the night.

Which color pair would you choose?

{Collecting Rainbows} House Salt & Pepper Shakers

 

Little houses always draw me in. I don’t know if it’s because I was always trying to find someone to play monopoly with as a kid or just because they’re cute. I love these little house salt and pepper shakers ($8) because they’re colorful and make a small street when lined up! Very cute for a christmas or hostess gift!

What color of the rainbow would you choose?
