Are you considering a kitchen renovation in Melbourne? Then you’re likely on the hunt for a fresh helping of kitchen inspiration.
If you’re not sure where to look, here’s a quick rundown of where you can find fresh ideas for your new kitchen.
The internet is a treasure trove of kitchen design inspiration. Here you’ll find almost any thinkable – as well as unthinkable – design idea which can get the gears moving on your own kitchen project.
There are many websites out there to draw inspiration from, like Houzz, Instagram, and Pinterest. Just be aware that when you start a kitchen design search online that you may suddenly find yourself looking up from the screen to discover that hours have slipped by.
Home and garden magazines
Magazines are loaded with gorgeous images showcasing the best kitchen designs and layouts. The benefit of looking through magazines is that the articles and images have been expertly vetted by a publisher who wants to make sure that you only see the best.
Another benefit is that magazines are dated, so you know when the story was published. Many resources online will quote prices and “top material options for the year”, but that article may very well have been published nearly a decade ago and be out of date.
No kitchen design idea is complete without visiting an actual Melbourne kitchen showroom.
A photograph in a magazine or a small image on the internet won’t give you the same accurate impression as visiting a kitchen showroom will. There are a lot of benefits to visiting a showroom, including:
- Seeing and feeling the products, colours, dimensions, and feel in person
- Being better able to visualise how elements will fit into your kitchen design
- Speaking to an experienced Kitchen Consultant or Designer to obtain advice and knowledge
The benchtop colour that you thought looked gorgeous online may not look so lovely in a different light. The appliance that has top ratings online might end up not being exactly what you were looking for.
It’s also important to actually touch and feel the products in which you’ll be investing. Texture is important, so take your time literally getting “hands-on” with the products you most fancy.
Another benefit of visiting a kitchen showroom is having the opportunity to speak with an experienced Melbourne Kitchen Designer.
Not all showrooms have designers readily available. Here at Zesta Kitchens, you can find a friendly Kitchen Designer at all three of our Melbourne kitchen showrooms.
Our Kitchen Designers will work with you when planning the best design for your home’s layout. As you’ll find, our designers are a leading resource for discovering the best cabinetry, benchtops, appliances and more for your dream kitchen.
