When we decide to remodel our home, whether it’s multiple or just one room, Summer is usually the time to put our hands to work. Whether it’s because there’s less chance of getting rain or because we’re on vacation, summertime is the best time to do it. Be inspired by the following tips and trends and give your kitchen a new look.

Maximise natural light

Always prioritise natural light. It’s the best way to create a light, modern space that feels more spacious. Plus, it benefits from greater energy efficiency.

Large windows are the first step to making the most of natural light, whatever the time of year. And if you can incorporate a skylight, even better.

In any case, you should also opt for suitable artificial lighting for darker days. There are plenty of options on the market. Just choose the one that best suits your style and budget.

The joy and energy of lighter colours

To brighten up your kitchen even more, we recommend you opt for a lighter colour palette.
White never goes out of style. However, if you’re in the mood to go a little bolder, explore shades of light blue or aqua green.

Every element counts – walls, cupboards, utensils, and the floor. Create combinations that capture the energy you’re looking for in your kitchen.

Investing in natural materials such as wood or marble will help with visual contrast while making your kitchen more durable and environmentally friendly.

Picking the right equipment

If your kitchen renovation also involves new appliances and other equipment like the kitchen sink, take the opportunity to make efficient and quality choices.
Energy efficiency and water saving should be the top criteria for this selection, as well as quality and durability.

Choosing the kitchen sink is often undervalued, even knowing that it has a central role in the kitchen, both functional and aesthetic. It is no coincidence that RODI offers a wide range of kitchen sinks – suitable for different styles, sizes, and routines.
Be sure to explore all the information you need to find the right sink for your kitchen countertop.

More functionality and organisation

The first step is to create a functional triangle between the kitchen sink, fridge, and stove – this is the basic layout to ensure minimum functionality when carrying out tasks in the kitchen. From there, everything else gravitates.

The use of open shelves has been a big trend. Keeping everything you need visible allows you to be more agile and quick. But opting for this type of shelving means being very organised. If not, it can easily make your kitchen look cluttered. These open shelves are often used for decorative elements like plant pots, books, and frames.

For closed cabinets, try to create divisions that allow you to place and remove utensils easily. Even if they are closed cabinets, don’t give up on organisation. Less is more. Get rid of what you don’t use. You will clear space in the kitchen and your mind.

A kitchen renovation brings new life to the home. More and more, the kitchen is the heart of any house. The whole family mingles and enjoys this versatile space. Kitchens have long since ceased to be purely functional spaces and have become the family’s favourite gathering and living place.
