New Kitchen Inspiration 

Getting your kitchen right in terms of design is imperative. It’s a part of the house you spend a lot of time in. From breakfast, lunch and dinner through to parties and beyond; the kitchen is the room where the right design isn’t just a nice to have, it’s crucial. 

If you’re currently looking to redesign your kitchen, then you might want to check out these awesome design ideas guaranteed to help your new kitchen project ensure your kitchen becomes the room of your dreams.

Hanging Around The Island

This design obviously depends greatly on the size of your kitchen however if you have the space, we strongly recommend installing an island for both style and practicality purposes. Islands are the perfect addition that not only look great but offer you more storage too. Here at Matter Designs, we can ensure the island becomes an integral part of the kitchen, creating a smooth flow allowing you to move from prep area to hob to dishwasher in one swift movement. Ensure your island not only looks great but adds to the function of your kitchen and it will be the best addition you ever make.


Design Dreams In Down Lighters

Down lighters can be a fantastic style addition to the kitchen, especially when used as a focal point or centrepiece. Incorporate these with your island and you have an instant wow factor. Much like a kitchen island, they’re also great from a practicality point of view as they give you the additional light that benefits you when working with knives and other sharp objects. One of the biggest factors we’ll consider when installing down lighters, something that’s often overlooked however is headspace. All too often they’re installed and instantly become a hindrance for the taller members of the family.

Perfectly Placed Appliances

While you’re designing your kitchen, it’s a great idea to consider the placement of your appliances. Why not make ovens at eye level and rid yourself of ever having to squat to check your food while it’s cooking? Ensure you have a small sink placed next to where you’re likely to wash and chop veg too. By thinking of the little things like this, you increase the usability of your kitchen and simply make it flow much more freely.

Matte Paint For Cabinets

Matte paint isn’t just a new trend for cars. Matte paint can also be an incredible addition to kitchen cupboards. Gloss has had its day and is very quickly being replaced by the super popular matte finish. It’s elegant, it’s classy; in fact it’s a no-brainer.

Amazing service and fast turn around. We had our designs over to us within weeks and the whole build was done in a couple of months. They worked well with our selected tradesman and their maintance plan is outstanding. 100% recommend.

Our kitchen was small and awkward, but Matter design gave us a fabulous layout and really made the kitchen space feel very open! Can't recommend them enough!

The bedroom and bathroom design supplied by Matter was out of this world! Feels so open and modern, but also very cosy. Really makes use of all the space. Thank you Matter very much.
