Clever kitchen features you must have in your Melbourne home

Clever kitchen features you must have in your Melbourne home

As one of Melbourne’s premier custom kitchen designers for over 30 years, we’ve seen many kitchen trends come and go. However, some kitchen features have stood the test of time, making them worthwhile additions to your home. 

Custom kitchen pantry 

Custom kitchen pantries provide a convenient and organised way to store food, cookware and appliances. They can be installed in various ways – from wall-mounted cabinets to built-in shelving units – to fit the size and layout of your kitchen space. Pantries are typically made from wood making it easy to customise them according to your design preferences. With a custom kitchen pantry, you’ll have easy access to everything you need while keeping your kitchen clutter-free.

Undermounted sinks

Overall, under-mounted sinks are a great way to modernise the look of your kitchen while also providing practical benefits. They offer a sleek, modern appearance and create the illusion of space on your benchtop. Plus, under-mounted sinks extend your kitchen workspace (allowing a quick sweep of pesky crumbs), making it easier to keep clean.  

Pull-out drawers

Maximise storage space in your kitchen with pull-out drawers. Offering easy access to food, appliances and pots, pull-out drawers keep you organised and are easily tucked away when not used. Organise your kitchen space with cutlery drawer organisers, pull-out spice racks or blind-corner pullouts that allow easy access into hard-to-reach cupboards. 

Custom range-hood designs

Range-hoods can blend seamlessly into your kitchen design or become the focal point of your custom kitchen. So whether you are looking for a contemporary look with a copper canopy-style range-hood, a French Provincial custom-boxed range-hood with crown moulding, or a rangehood unit hidden behind upper cabinets, our custom kitchen designers can create it. And since Direct Kitchens manufactures cabinetry in its own Melbourne factory, the quality will be durable and beautiful.

Kitchen features to add to your home

Choosing kitchen features that will stand the test of time and work for your family is essential when considering kitchen trends. With a custom kitchen design, the sky is the limit for features and options – so take your time to discuss your needs with your custom kitchen designer at Direct Kitchens.
