Introduction to Colour Psychology in Kitchen Design When embarking on a kitchen renovation or design…
At BJF Joinery, we understand that today’s kitchens must be supreme multitaskers. As a team with extensive experience in renovations on the Gold Coast, we are committed to helping our customers from the initial design process all the way through to the completion of their kitchen renovation. We know that the kitchen is the home’s beating heart, where families gather to cook, eat, and share anecdotes. It’s also a space where we entertain and socialise with friends. With so much activity happening in one room, it’s crucial to have a functional kitchen with an ergonomic layout that facilitates optimal flow.
LAYOUT: Maximising Efficiency
When it comes to modern kitchen design, layout is a key consideration, along with the quality of appliances. Both aspects can significantly impact productivity. The layout of your kitchen will determine how you use the space and how functional it will be. At BJF Joinery, we specialise in designing an effective kitchen “work” triangle configuration that ensures easy access to work surfaces, appliances, and the sink. This maximises cooking efficiency and creates an environment that is both practical and enjoyable.
BENCHTOP: Efficiency and Harmony
The configuration of your benchtop is another crucial element to consider when designing your kitchen. How the cooktop, sink, and working space are arranged is closely connected to the layout stage. By keeping these elements together, we create an efficient and harmonious environment that saves you time when preparing food and cooking. At BJF Joinery, we develop your kitchen plans with these initial considerations in mind, ensuring a seamless and functional design.
STORAGE: Easy Access to Everything
A well-designed kitchen should have ample storage to provide easy access to everything you need while cooking. Maximising storage space is essential to accommodate ingredients, plates, utensils, cookware, and any other items you require on hand when creating a phenomenal feast. Our team at BJF Joinery knows how to utilise the available space effectively, ensuring you have room for all your kitchen essentials.
FINISHES: Aesthetic and Functional Balance
The finishes you choose for your kitchen should strike the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. In a home kitchen, clean and functional benchtops are in high demand, along with sufficient and hygienic work surfaces. At BJF Joinery, we offer a wide range of finishes that not only enhance the visual appeal of your kitchen but also meet the practical needs of a busy cooking space.
APPLIANCES: Quality and Efficiency
For those who are serious about cooking, investing in high-quality and time-efficient appliances is a must. Top-of-the-line appliances are coveted for their reliability and long-lasting performance. When selecting appliances for your kitchen, it’s essential to consider their impact on the overall room. At BJF Joinery, we ensure that both the technology and aesthetics of your chosen appliances are advanced, adding to the overall functionality and beauty of your kitchen.
Thomas, the senior designer at BJF Joinery, has a personal favourite appliance—the combi-steam oven. He enthusiastically shares, “My Gaggenau combi-steam oven allows me to roast and steam, achieving amazing results in a single appliance.” This innovative oven combines humidity (steam) with convection (dry heat circulated by fans), resulting in more even cooking while preserving the essential nutrients of your ingredients. Previously limited to professional kitchens, the combi-steam oven was introduced by Gaggenau into private homes 20 years ago. The latest 400 series combi-steam oven empowers private chefs to master the art of steam cooking, enhancing the overall culinary experience.
