Dream house Kitchen Design

Like in most homes the kitchen really is the heart of the home & this is something that was very much on my mind when it came to planning the kitchen for the dream house.
It will be the most used room in the house so it needs to be functional, spacious, easy to keep clean but  also stylish & welcoming all at the same time.....Lets hope I am able to achieve all of the above!!!
 
 

I do apologise for the poor iphone images, I was experiencing a few technical difficulties but couldn't wait to share them with you.
 
 
Im loving the island, the space on the left is for the microwave, an appliance I can't live without, but one that I would like hidden from view.
 
 
We will be having a french door style fridge.
 
 
This image is so small its probably a waste of time putting it on here, I promise I will show you a better image of this plan when I have these issues sorted out!!!
 
 
These are the inspiration pics I gave to the Terry from
 
they are all from my pinterest board of course!
 
He then designed the kitchen that I had pictured in my head.
The concealed rangehood, small glass display cupboards above the overhead cupboards & a nice simple island for my family to sit at.
This should all compliment the rest of the dream house decor perfectly!
 
 
I am so happy with the design, I cant wait to see it built.
It goes without saying that all of the cabinetry will be white & my bench tops will be
20mm thick Quantum Quartz in Carrara
It looks very similar to Carrara marble.
 I would love to have the real thing but it just isnt practical in my home. My kids spill things all of the time & because marble is so absorbant the stains would be horrendous, something I don't think I could live with, so....
I shall have to fake it.
 I really don't mind though, the quantum quartz is a fantastic hard wearing product & it looks fabulous as well.
You can check out the range of colours on the website
 

 
These images are from  the Planit Kitchen gallery, as you can see the quality of their work is fantastic
 
 
I work for a building company & we only use Planit Kitchens in our homes.
 
 
Love this pantry!!
 
Planit Kitchens are based on The NSW Central Coast, they have a show room in Erina, look them up if you are planning a new kitchen.
 
I am also using these guys for my bathroom vanities & laundry fit out which I will share with you in another post.
 
Im looking forward to your thoughts & suggestions.
 
Don't forget that now google reader has gone you need to start following me with Bloglovin which is over on my side bar!
