As it is the heart of every home, it is important your kitchen is noticed and decorated well. Whether you live in a studio or a larger home, everyone has a kitchen. Our kitchens are where we cook, eat, socialise and entertain, a place where memories are made.

It is the centre of both entertainment and work. That is why we put in so much effort into decorating our kitchens and dream of having a kitchen that is stylish, timeless and functional, too.

Whether you are looking for just a few design changes or thinking of remodeling your entire kitchen, we have come up with the essentials when transforming your kitchen, becoming the heart of your home.

Begin With The Basics

Regardless if you have decided to undergo a complete renovation or would like to transform the entire feel of your kitchen, it is a good idea to begin with the foundation of the kitchen, understanding the type of materials you have your eye on.

This is the first step before even considering adding appliances and decor items in your kitchen.

The use of microcement in design spaces has been continuously growing in popularity. Architecture and interior designers have transformed such a simple material into creating exclusive atmospheres, providing spaces with a rustic touch.

The use of concrete or cement will provide your space with such a unique style, creating an area full of personality and an unforgettable atmosphere for all your family and friends.

That is exactly the reason we have been using microcement as part of our designs for several years, providing our clients with beautiful kitchens, as well as bathroom designs, to create that ultimate, timeless look.

The best thing about incorporating microcement when designing is that it is so versatile. You can place microcement everywhere; on the floors, walls and as countertops!

Keeping It Natural

If you enjoy a lifestyle close to nature, then having a nature inspired kitchen will be ideal for you. Every time you step into your kitchen to cook, entertain or simply relax, you will want to have that special connection with nature. There are several key points to consider when designing a nature inspired kitchen.

Firstly, we recommend using authentic natural materials such as wood and concrete. Their quality and durability makes them a good choice. We absolutely love the use of natural elements, so we try to incorporate that look in all our kitchen designs.

Rugs may not be the first thing you consider when transforming your kitchen, but there are so many benefits to adding rugs. Rugs are a great way to add colour and style in a neutral toned kitchen and they add extra comfort under your feet, too.

Depending on the shape of your kitchen, we recommend adding one of our beautiful Jute Rugs to complement your space. They are environmentally friendly and made from all natural fibres, creating a natural boho feeling in your kitchen.

Sit With Stools

Kitchen stools are chairs that provide both character, as well as saving space in your home. They are versatile and so easy to maneuver, which is ideal when you have visitors.

There is something so special about having wooden bar stools in the kitchen. That is why we adore these Teak Bar Stools that are made out of natural teak wood and designed to portray an organic look, perfect for any kitchen style.
