As more than a place to prepare meals, the kitchen is a gathering place, a dining area, and a spot for entertaining. If your current kitchen isn’t meeting your needs, a renovation could turn it into the functional showpiece you desire. But what are the qualities of a good kitchen design that will last?

The Most Important Elements of a Great Kitchen Design 

Have you thought much about an island, a wine cooler, or a baking centre that could fit your design? Stop and consider the following elements as “must-haves” for your kitchen for a more attractive and functional space.

Adequate Storage Space 

Ask any kitchen designer about the qualities of a good kitchen, and nearly all will start with storage space. Storage solutions keep dishes, utensils, cookware, small appliances, and pantry items organized and easily accessible, whether that’s pot racks, pull-out drawers, or other ways to make the most of available space. 

Energy-Efficient Appliances 

Replacing outdated appliances with energy-efficient models saves money on energy bills while upgrading the kitchen. Newer appliances also have features that make cooking and cleanup easier, adding to their value in your kitchen redesign.

Durable Flooring 

The kitchen floor needs to withstand high traffic and spills without staining, scratching, or showing damage. Quality materials are durable, easy to clean, and attractive. For example, tile is a classic choice, but laminate is softer underfoot and offers the warmth of hardwood.

Don’t Forget About the Lighting 

Lighting is the final aspect to consider when designing the new kitchen or any other room. In particular, kitchens need a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting for inviting, safe spaces. Why not add pendant lights over the kitchen island to illuminate the cooking area and create a warmer ambiance? 

Under-cabinet lighting also creates depth and highlights any custom backsplash for a modern, elegant aesthetic that’s truly magazine-worthy.
