Kitchen & Dining Week on The Block

Crafting the perfect kitchen: Our top 5 tips for your dream space

The Block never fails to inspire us with its stunning room transformations, and this week's
episode left us awestruck by a kitchen that truly sets the bar for high-end family living. From
the beautifully brave orange oven to the strategically placed island bench, this kitchen
checked all the boxes for a modern, functional, and aesthetically pleasing space. If you're
looking to revamp your kitchen, take a cue from The Block's latest masterpiece and consider
our top five tips for creating your dream kitchen.

1. Thoughtful layout and adequate workspace


The layout of your kitchen is crucial to its functionality. Just like the kitchen on The Block, ensure your design allows for efficient movement and provides ample workspace. A well-placed island bench, like the one in this kitchen, can serve as both a prep area and a social hub for your family and guests.

2. Ample storage solutions


Storage is key to maintaining a clutter-free and organised kitchen. Incorporate plenty of cabinets, drawers, and pantry space to keep your kitchen essentials neatly stowed away. The butler's pantry adjacent to The Block's kitchen is a prime example of how to maximise storage while maintaining a seamless aesthetic. Be sure to include stunning cabinet handles to access your storage space.

3. Choose the right kitchen sink


Selecting the perfect kitchen sink may seem like a small detail, but it can make a big difference in your daily routine. Consider factors like size, material, and style when choosing your sink. A well-chosen sink can complement your kitchen's design and make daily tasks more enjoyable.

4. Illuminate with care


Good lighting can transform your kitchen from a functional space into a warm and inviting one. The right lighting fixtures can also highlight key design elements, just as The Block's artwork emphasized their bold oven choice. Ensure you have ample task lighting for food preparation and ambient lighting to create a cozy atmosphere.

5. Flooring: tiles or timber?


When it comes to flooring, you have several options, but tiles and timber are perennial favorites. Tiles are durable, easy to clean, and come in a wide range of styles. Timber, on the other hand, brings warmth and a timeless charm to your kitchen. Consider your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences when choosing between these two options.
