How to design a functional kitchen layout in your Sunshine Coast home

Between making school lunches, cooking dinner, and juggling homework (not to mention the dishes!) you probably spend more time in your kitchen than you realise. Avoid frustration by prioritising flow and functionality in your kitchen plans. Your designer will work with you to determine your needs and your style and suggest the best kitchen layout for your home.

Whether that’s a classic triangle working space, galley style, or a space saving I-shaped kitchen, a skilled designer will ensure that efficiency is maximised and clutter is minimised! For more about kitchen design, or kitchen layout designs for a small kitchen, read our handy article on the ins and outs of kitchen designs.

Maximise storage space in your Sunshine Coast kitchen

Keep your benchtops clear and your crockery organised by maximising your storage space. A scullery or butler’s pantry is a fantastic option, but if your budget (or space) doesn’t allow for one there are plenty of other hacks to make the most of your kitchen space.

Consider opting for drawers over cupboards, incorporating a lazy susan, having inner pull outs for pantry shelves, an appliance garage to house essential items, or hanging storage and shelves above the counter to keep workspace clear.

Even small kitchens can benefit from thoughtful but simple design choices, such as dividers in a cupboard to allow easy vertical storage and access to baking trays. You can read more top tips on how to maximise your storage space here.

Go island style in Sunshine Coast, kitchen island that is!

Kitchen designs with an island benchtop remain popular because of their functionality and versatility. They provide a large counter space for meal prep, they double as a breakfast bar or homework hub for the kids, and provide a great spot for friends and family to relax and chat when you’re entertaining.

For a sleek look, consider a waterfall benchtop design, or prioritise handy hidden storage and extra electrical outlets. Don’t forget that lighting above your island can be a key design choice and an opportunity to make some bold choices with pendant lighting or linear chandeliers.

What style of kitchen works for you?

Do you love the all-white look, or are you wanting to try some bold hues? Are you a fan of clean and contemporary design, or do you like the idea of a homestyle kitchen with a farmhouse sink? Whatever your style, we can help you achieve it, from chic Hamptons style kitchens to minimalist shaker designs.

Even if you already have a good idea of styles and colours you like, our designers will work closely with you to find the perfect design to reflect your personal tastes. And if you simply  have no idea where to start, we can help with that, too!
