HOW TO OVERHAUL YOUR KITCHEN THIS SEASON

More and more people are making the kitchen the heart of their home. A space which enables us to socialise, cook and relax with family and friends - often at the same time - is on many homeowners’ wish lists...

With a little help from Greatlook, it’s easy to achieve. Check out their top tips – and must-have products – to help make your kitchen cool this autumn/winter…

ISLAND FEVER

Whether an independent or a peninsula, adding an island to your kitchen creates an inviting living space in an otherwise functional, working room. Somewhere to congregate, kick-back and catch up with loved ones, but also a place to store kitchen essentials, or even do some food prep.

DINE RIGHT

Integrating a clever dining function as an extension to your island allows you to free up space elsewhere in the kitchen – which means more room to lounge about! That said, if you have a soft spot for dining tables, Greatlook can create a bespoke table just for you, made from quality materials to match your kitchen furniture, sideboards and decor.

SAY YES TO STORAGE 

Clever storage is an essential factor for most homeowners – especially in the kitchen. Being able to tidy away the practical elements of a kitchen, including cumbersome appliances, frees up space and creates that decluttered, ‘minimalistic’ look. Greatlook Design Studio is not restricted to standard industry sizes. With a workshop on site, they can accommodate tailored requirements to adapt to your personal storage needs, allowing you to maintain a pristine space.

RAW AND REFINED

The beautiful juxtaposition of modern finishes and natural materials creates an interesting and inviting setting. Mixing organic and modern can be achieved by pairing immaculate matt units with chunky wooden worktops, or by introducing vintage/industrial accent furniture to a glossy kitchen. Perfect for autumn/winter.

WARM IT UP

For the past decade, grey has been a hot colour for just about every room in the home – and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! However, as we head into the colder months, there is increased demand for warmer, toastier colours. This season, embrace a darker colour palette with a greater emphasis on black, contrasted by rich coffee browns, cashmere taupe and stoney greys.
