So, we asked our kitchen designers for a few tips on what to think about when it comes to designing a modern kitchen space. Avoid the common pitfalls people make when planning a kitchen with the tips that follow.
03 Not Enough Lighting
Unlike most rooms in the house, you don't want the light in a kitchen to only come from above where you will cause a shadow. In a kitchen, you are better off having a light fall in front of you. Down lights above bench tops, hanging lighting and led light under cabinetry are all great options.

04 Money Spent Poorly
When creating a kitchen, the stove is your statement piece. It is the most commonly used item and is always prominently on display. The best designers agree, if you were only to replace one item, make it the stove. It will make cooking more pleasurable and add the most value to your kitchen.
07 Insufficient Planning
If you're the social type or enjoy working in the kitchen, it will be imperative to ensure things like the island bench have enough clearance for your knees. We recommend an inset of 300 milimeters. Also, take into account each person will need about 600mm along the bench to sit comfortably.
