6 ways to enjoy your brand new kitchen this summer

Updated: May 12, 2023

With warmer weather and longer days, there is no better season to enjoy the glory of a brand new kitchen than the summer. From hosting summer parties and embracing al fresco dining, to experimenting with new recipes and having everyday life run a little more seamlessly thanks to a practical layout and features, having a new kitchen in time for summer unlocks a range of possibilities.

To get you feeling inspired and ready to finally bring your dream kitchen to life, we’ve shared 6 simple and easy ways you can enjoy your new kitchen this summer…

Host a summer party

There is no better way to show off your brand new kitchen than by hosting a summer soriée! Whether you enjoy keeping your parties exclusively reserved for your nearest and dearest or thrive off the excitement of hosting large parties filled with friends and family, your new kitchen is set to be at the centre of all the action.

As your guests sit back and relax with an ice cold drink, you can be cooking up a storm in the kitchen, from mouth-watering burgers to fresh summer salads. Planning your perfect summer menu and entertaining space is all part of the hosting experience, and a brand new kitchen with excellent appliances, a well considered layout and beautiful design elements will help you host a party to remember.

Showcase your finest collection of bottles with a luxurious wine fridge or prepare a feast for your guests from a sleek kitchen island. A new layout can help make your kitchen easier to use and more practical, creating a kitchen that you love and are proud to show off to your friends and family.

Experiment with new recipes

For those looking to improve upon their culinary skills or simply want to find a little more joy in the mundanity of day to day family cooking, a brand new kitchen with smart appliances and a layout that works with your lifestyle makes it much easier to experiment with new recipes and fall in love with cooking again.

Say goodbye to slaving over the sink with a new dishwasher or bask in the luxury of a boiling water tap to help speed up the process while you cook. Induction hobs also make the perfect feature for those who want to make cooking faster and more efficient.

Embrace the natural light

The kitchen is a space that we use every day, but can turn into a source of despair if the overall design becomes dark, dim or dated.

With long summer days and lighter evenings, you want to ensure you are making the most of the natural sunlight flowing through your home, and changing the layout and design of your kitchen may be the perfect solution.

By opening up the space in your kitchen or selecting a lighter colour palette for your worktops or cabinetry, you can create a space that feels light, bright and airy. Having natural light flow through your kitchen can work wonders in making your kitchen feel more inviting and welcoming, allowing you to fully embrace the season while you’re cooking or entertaining guests.

Al fresco dining

Your home may have a beautiful garden or outdoor seating area that is perfect for enjoying a meal or some drinks in the sun, but bringing your kitchen up to that same level enhances the whole al fresco dining experience for you and any guests you have round. Investing in a new kitchen that compliments your outdoor dining area, helps to create a seamless flow between your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Spend quality time with your loved ones

Kitchens have always been viewed as the central hub of the home, and a space where families and friends can come together to cook, socialise and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals.

Nowadays, our modern lifestyles demand more flexibility from our kitchens, with many doubling up as home offices during the pandemic. A kitchen isn’t just for cooking and dining anymore, it’s a space where parents may supervise their children while dinner is being made or a place to relax and enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee on the weekend.

You want your kitchen to be a space that is practical yet aesthetically pleasing - somewhere you and your family can enjoy spending time together. Features such as breakfast bars and central islands are designed to encourage quality time, making it easy for family or guests to pull up a chair and watch as someone cooks, or just sit back and unwind.

Bake summer treats

Who doesn’t love the delicious aroma of freshly baked goods wafting through your home? From fruit tarts to traditional Victoria sponge cakes, baking is an excellent way to take advantage of your new kitchen and test out any new appliances such as induction hobs, easy clean ovens and warming drawers.

Baking is also an ideal family-friendly activity that is guaranteed to create lasting memories that you and your family can look back on fondly for years to come - so you want to have a kitchen that lends itself well for baking tasty creations and is a space you love to spend time in. Remember - the messy hands, sticky worktops and spillages are all part of the experience!
