For many people, the summer months and the approach of the long school holidays represents the perfect time to be a debonair host and invite friends and family over for a summer party. If the British weather has been benevolent, then it may be time to throw open the patio doors and indulge in a hearty barbecue. If the rainclouds have gathered, then there’s always the chance for a buffet indoors. So, when you’re planning a party, ask yourself this question: which room in your home are your guests most likely to congregate in?
For many people the answer is the kitchen. For years, the room most used for the production of food has been the focal social point of many a gathering. Whether it is chatting to the host as they cook their latest delicacy or even whether it is merely joking with friends while sharing a glass of wine, the kitchen has become the social centre for family parties.
Of course, some kitchens lend themselves to this change in usage quite easily. Increasing numbers of bespoke kitchens are designed at Kitchens by DeZine to reflect this duality of purpose, providing a combination of modern design, elegance and luxury with the basic functionality, space and mod cons required by the family. Changing your kitchen to allow you and your guests to utilise this key social space more need not be expensive. For some, their current kitchen installation need only be modified slightly to produce a much more welcoming effect. A designer kitchen that is open plan, for example, can benefit from having an island unit located in the room, giving additional space for people to sit and chat, or alternatively further preparation space for the host. Another option is the installation of a breakfast bar area. The breakfast bar is particularly well suited to the galley style of kitchen, but in truth, with the help of our kitchen specialist, it is easy to incorporate this simple, yet effective add on into your kitchen. It will then provide the perfect place to enjoy morning breakfast, or for guests to sit down, enjoy a drink and chat to the host while they serve up the delights on their menu.
If you have a larger kitchen with plenty of open floor space, it is entirely possible to combine an island unit and breakfast bar area to provide a large focal point for feverish culinary activity and enjoyable social interaction. By installing both items together a kitchen can have a welcoming, social feel as well as providing it with a great deal more functionality for every day usage. There are many other small touches that can be added to your new kitchen as part of the installation. Our designers can ensure that little touches, such as an MP3 music system, television or mood lighting will enhance the social factor and give your kitchen a truly individual feel. In many cases, older fitted kitchens were not designed with the functionality of the user in mind. It was very much a case of being able to fit items into the kitchen wherever they could be accommodated. Ease of use was not a predominant feature of the older style of kitchen. The problems of such a kitchen may not be apparent to the novice eye, but at Kitchens by DeZine we understand the problems people face in poorly designed and constructed kitchens and offer the solutions for modern day kitchen requirements.
Our expertise will not only ensure that you get one of the best possible designer kitchens, but that your kitchen reflects your immediate and future needs. A true kitchen specialist will be able to listen to your wants and needs throughout the whole process, from the initial design of the kitchen through its installation, the selection and positioning of appliances, provision of cupboard and working space right down to deciding on the smaller issues, such as the types of hinges you want in place. Best of all, for a complete redesign, you will be able to see a realistic 3D CAD representation of what your new kitchen will look like when completed.
With bespoke kitchens now more affordable than ever and a quality kitchen adding significant value to the price of a home, there is no better time to consider making that change for the better. Employing the skills and professionalism of Kitchens by DeZine will ensure that your new bespoke kitchen installation remains functional, beautiful and looking neat and tidy long into the future.
