What are the most important visual design features for any kitchen space?

In any kitchen, contemporary or traditional, rustic or industrial, there are a number of important visual design features to include. These can help to emphasise or complement your interior design style, while also creating a focal point for your kitchen space. Some of the most important visual design features include:

  • The kitchen worktops
  • The kitchen islands
  • The kitchen sink

How can kitchen worktops create a visual design feature?

The kitchen worktops offer the perfect bridge between the upper and lower cabinets and can be used very effectively to create a striking kitchen feature. Worktops in a lighter or darker colour than the cabinets can create an area of contrast that draws the eye and adds visual interest. These can also be made from different materials like hardwood or stone, or in a timber or stone effect design, which can be very effective for adding a natural touch to your kitchen.

How can a kitchen island create a visual design feature?

The kitchen island can present a fantastic opportunity to add a visual feature to any kitchen with enough space. From storage and food preparation, to seating or even a sink space, kitchen islands can be used for a multitude of purposes, which can help to improve the practicality of your kitchen space. However this also adds another decorative or visual touch to your kitchen, particularly if you choose a contrasting or complementary colour for this piece of furniture. 

How can the kitchen sink create a visual design feature?

For some kitchens the kitchen sink is designed to blend in with the space and not make much of a visual impact. So why is this included in a list of visual kitchen features? Well the kitchen sink can be used to create a bold statement for any kitchen depending on the type of sink you opt for and the colour or material choices. In a rustic kitchen fr example,  an apron sink in copper or ceramic can instantly draw attention while supporting the visual design of the space overall.
