The more you know, the more you can create.
There’s no end to imagination in the kitchen.
– Julia Child
What style of kitchen is your ideal? As the room in the home that sees the most activity, your kitchen reveals much about your personality. From personal taste to practical considerations, your kitchen says a lot about you. So what’s your best fit? Let’s take a look.
For you, a well-stocked chef’s kitchen is a must, complete with the BEST quality appliances.
You are a loyal follower of the Slow Food Movement and belong to at least one Gourmet Supper Club. Your friends consider you a maestro in the kitchen and are more than happy to pitch in as sous chefs while you work your magic.
Need to supervise the kids’ homework while you cook supper? Work on a freelance assignment with one eye on the pot of spaghetti sauce bubbling on the stove? For you, an eat-in kitchen serves a multitude of purposes and helps you keep up with the demands of a fast-paced lifestyle.
Your friends treat your kitchen as an informal gathering place – busy, yet welcoming.
The kitchen is the centre of your home, with enough room for a crowd and a huge island where everyone can gather.
You’re known as the ultimate host and there’s always room for one more friend around your table. An open-concept kitchen design is your ideal because it allows you to cook and socialize at the same time.
You’d rather dine at a neighbourhood bistro or gastropub than eat at home. For you, a well-stocked kitchen includes a spacious wine rack and a fridge large enough to accommodate several quality cheeses from the farmer’s market, plus a couple of growlers of local craft beer.
Your kitchen is the gathering spot before a night out on the town with friends.
For you, style is as important as function. You prowl the aisles of home design stores, looking for the latest trend and you’re perpetually planning your next kitchen update.
Your friends consider you the go-to person for kitchen design advice and you’re happy to share ideas.
Foodie, Multi-Tasker, Entertainer, Urbanite or Trendsetter, the kitchen will be an important part of the house as long as there is food to cook and bellies to fill. So where do you fit in? Are there any categories you would add? Let us know by replying to this blog post.
