Completely new or remodeled: follow these seven steps when planning your kitchen.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Step 1: Get inspired.

Browse through the Kitchen Design Ideas, visit kitchen design websites or buy interior design magazines to get some inspiration. Bookmark your favourite styles or cut them out and make a mood board of what you like best. Also ask friends and family for advice: what do they like most about their kitchen? What would they do differently today? Why did they choose their colours, shape and appliances?

Step 2: Choose the shape, style and colour of your kitchen.

Now that you’ve gathered some inspiration, information and ideas, define your project: which kitchen layout would fit in your home and bestsuits your lifestyle and household? What colours and styles match your home? Keep in mind that it’s best to choose a design that will continue to work for you in the years to come. An interior architect or kitchen retailer will help you with the decision-making.

Step 3: Take the measurements.

Measure your kitchen and make a sketch of the room. Using graph paper can help you draw to scale. Mark doors, windows and objects such as pipes, vents and radiators. Don’t forget switches, power outlets, water connections and drainage – that’s important for the arrangement of the appliances in the next stage. But don’t worry: your Bosch kitchen retailer will go through the measurements with you for a final check before the order.

Step 4: Choose and position your appliances.

Try to arrange your sink, cooktop and fridge in a triangle to create the most efficient working space. Cluster elements that use the same resources, e.g. the sink and the dishwasher at the water supply. Arranging appliances ergonomically, such as placing ovens at eye level or the dishwasher at knee-height is increasingly popular – and for good reason. Also consider less common appliances, such as a warming drawer or a built-in coffee machine – you will love the convenience.

Step 5: Arrange your kitchen cabinets.

Having ample storage space is crucial for your kitchen. Having your things tucked away neatly increases productivity. Visualise where you will need your cooking items and arrange your cabinets accordingly. Pans, pots and cooking utensils should be kept near the cooktop and oven. Plates, glasses and cutlery, on the other hand, are best placed near the dishwasher so they can be put away quickly after washing. Solutions like a pull-out pantry or V-shaped corner drawers create space that would otherwise be lost.

Step 6: Set up your countertop.

When choosing the countertop material, keep in mind that this is the part of your kitchen used most frequently. So go for quality materials that match the rest of the kitchen well. Also take into consideration where you want to place your small kitchen appliances, like your kettle or toaster. You might want to think about a functional highlight such as extending a countertop to create a small breakfast bar.

See what different kitchen shapes can do for you.

The choice of shape defines the entire character of your kitchen.
Let us show you what favourable effects different rooms and shapes can have on your life at home:

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Single wall

A single wall kitchen on one side of the room offers an efficient solution for small spaces. But it’salso a classy option in larger kitchens, where – combined with a dining table or lounge furniture – it makes the perfect eat-in kitchen.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Galley

Two walls, one solution: the galley kitchen uses two adjacent walls for maximum storage in small rooms. This arrangement works well if you have a window on one side of the room and the door on the other. In larger, open rooms the second worktop can separate the cooking and the living area.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

L-shape

The L-shaped kitchen consists of two adjacent, perpendicular walls and is a great option for an eat-in kitchen with a small table and chairs. Also, this layout in open-plan kitchens creates an enjoyable setting for conversations and getting together.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

U-shape

A U-shaped kitchen is designed for one primary cook. The efficient layout guarantees lots of storage and can work in a small space as well as for professional use in larger kitchens, where you can even combine it with an island.

With island

An island is one of the most popular designs for a kitchen remodel – and it’s also a very flexible one. It can be both an efficient place for cooking and eating, or an inviting place for intimate cooking with friends.

Wood, glass or brushed steel? Choose your kitchen materials according to the look you want to create.

When it comes to materials for your kitchen, you are not only choosing the surface of your cooking space, but also the kitchen’s character. Whether you want to create a clean, uniform look or decide to mix materials, we’ve put together some helpful information for you.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Wood for a warm atmosphere.

Wooden surfaces make a kitchen feel instantly cosy and inviting. Wood pairs best with other natural materials, such as stone, but you can also go for a mix-and-match style, for example with white high-gloss acrylic. Timber is not only suitable for cabinets, but is increasingly used for flooring in kitchens. A good replacement for tiles, it’s warm underfoot and pleasant to walk on.

Brushed steel for a professional look.

Stainless steel is best known as the material used in professional kitchens where it is resistant to heat, humidity and heavy usage. For the same reasons, it has made its way into kitchens in private homes as well. It radiates a modern, cool elegance and gives an airy appearance. Choose stainless steel appliances as highlights, go for a brushed steel countertop or even for cabinets to create an industrial appearance.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Glass for transparency.

Glass is an all-time kitchen classic. Cabinets with glass doors give a perfect overview of the items inside. This can create a very decorative look, especially when the dishes match the colours of your kitchen, but it also means keeping strict order. Another approach: replace the common backsplash tiles with a glass surface – it’s very hygienic and easy to clean.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Synthetic materials for durability.

Cabinet doors made of synthetic materials or MDF panels covered with foil, lacquer or acrylic win over with high durability and low maintenance. They are offered in a huge colour range, and with a matt or high-gloss finish. White, cream and grey are the most common colours, but why not try to add some accents?

Natural stones for timeless appeal.

Marble, granite, slate and other natural stones give your new kitchen a very classy and elegant look. They are available in a wide range of colours and surfaces, but bear in mind that quality has its price. Natural stone is commonly used as a countertop, where it pays off with its resistance to cuts, scratches, heat and liquids.

Start Kitchen Design Ideas

Concrete for urban coolness.

Concrete polarises: for some it’s just grey and unadorned, while others like it precisely for this reason. Concrete is mostly used as worktop in very modern and sleek kitchens, but cabinets with a concrete look are now also available. The surfaces range from raw to polished, displaying a very special flair und developing a unique patina over the years.
