Large Kitchen Ideas

The choices are endless when it comes to large kitchen design ideas. A large space will work with almost any style of kitchen, and requires a considerable design element to utilise the space effectively for the look and functionality you are after. Large rooms can demand just as much care in the planning as small spaces.


An effective large kitchen design will often flow into other areas of the home, incorporating an open-plan living arrangement. One of the great advantages of a large kitchen is the obvious social aspect of being able to integrate entertaining while cooking. Large open spaces means it is important to consider the functionality and ergonomics of the working area, with consideration given to where meals will be prepared and where clean-up will occur.

Colour palettes in a large kitchen are wide-ranging and flexible. However, it is important not to over-utilise bold colours in a large space as the effect can be too heavy. Instead, stick to bold-coloured accessories to add splashes of colour, and these can be changed over time to create an entirely different feel to the room. In an open-plan layout, a monochromatic palette can work very effectively, or gloss colours to create a luxurious feel.


Consider a scullery or butler’s pantry in a large kitchen design – having a secondary meal preparation and clean-up area away from guests may be an ideal option to utilise the space. Built-in cool rooms and wine racks can also be beautiful additions, as well integrated appliances such as dishwashers, fridges and rangehoods to create a sleek and modern feel.
