As the heart of your home, the kitchen is probably one of the most important rooms to get right – so what’s required for the perfect kitchen design for your new Sunshine Coast home?

Firstly, don’t leave it up to fate – consider carefully what you and your family requires both now and in the future. Here’s our recommendations of things to consider for the perfect kitchen design.


Island benches

Looking to add counter space without compromising your floor plan? The island bench is a great solution. Whilst a wheelable country-look island bench might work well in a smaller home, the best option is a built-in customised island – it’s the ultimate space saver!

You can also make your island bench as functional as you like – whether it includes your sink or a stove-top, or drawers, cupboards and hidden charging docks, the choices are almost endless. Our team at Kitchens By Design can help you design the perfect kitchen for your family and lifestyle.


Designing the perfect pantry

Gone are the days when a pantry was just another ordinary cupboard in your kitchen. More than just a place to store food, the pantry can become so much more. Opt for a fancy butler’s pantry (where you can keep a lot of appliances out of sight) or get a little more creative with sliding doors, a walk-in-pantry or even a space saving a pull-out pantry. Once again, our team at KBR can give you so many great ideas to help you design a pantry that complements your home design, your lifestyle and your kitchen.


Greater choice in kitchen materials, fittings and fixtures

When it comes to kitchen fittings, fixtures and materials we are so spoilt for choice these days. You can create a beautiful kitchen without compromising on its functional layout by mixing up your materials. Mirrored splashbacks, black plumbing fixtures, creative cabinetry and hidden appliances – there’s so much choice out there now.
