Prahran Designer Kitchens

When designing a kitchen there are so many factors that you’ll need to consider and so many questions that you’ll have to ask yourself, some of which might include:

  • How much storage will you need?
  • Does your current kitchen get crowded quickly when people come to visit?
  • Will your new kitchen need to accommodate your growing family?
  • What appliances do you need and will they work with the space that you have?

Having such concerns is very normal and throughout the actual kitchen renovation project, you can expect plenty more to arise. Given the amount of considerations that you’ll need to take into account, you can quickly feel a sense of information overload if you don’t have a good idea of what you’re after.

In this situation, the best thing that you can do is to take a deep breath and accept that having lots of questions is perfectly normal.

As well as the concerns that are listed above, there are some vital design considerations that you’ll need to take into account for your new kitchen. Some key design considerations that you’ll need to give some thought to include both lighting and ventilation.


Kitchen lighting is always changing for the better, but the following styles remain to be among the favourites of homeowners all over Australia:

  • Down lights are primarily used for general use or to highlight a certain section.
  • Mood lighting uses small LED strips to highlight open shelves or underneath cupboards.
  • Pendant lighting is used to create a focal point over a bench or Kitchen table.
  • Natural lighting can serve a dual purpose of allowing daylight in and also allowing heat to escape while cooking. Generally speaking, it is introduced through the installation of skylights or window panels.


On par with lighting, ventilation is another important consideration as it can be effective in doing the following:

  • Eradicating bad smells
  • Reducing air-conditioning costs
  • Preventing airborne grease particles from moving into other rooms
  • Cause your kitchen appliances to last longer due to cooler indoor temperatures

The construction of a kitchen can be problematic if certain elements don’t come together at the right time and information overload and frustration can be enough to make you give up and settle with the kitchen you have.

With these design elements to consider it’s true that a kitchen isn’t an easy renovation for the inexperienced, no matter which suburb in Melbourne you’re living in or style of dwelling you have.
