Kitchens might have bene the most neglected parts of most households over modem history but recently, that had changed altogether. People have started paying more attention to the designs of their kitchens and the associated industries have flourished as a result. A well designed kitchen is the result of a collaborative effort of architectural engineers, interior designers, the workers and the homeowner themselves. It is in equal parts science and art and requires a certain degree of finesse.
The most visually prominent part of a kitchen designs in Sydney is the theme of the kitchen. The tiles used for the floors and shelves are the most visible part of the overall theme of the kitchen. Kitchens with a light brown overall theme are the most popular designs. They usually have brown to beige tiles with similarly coloured slabs used for the shelves. Other items that are not naturally brown or of a similar colouration can be made using synthetic materials such as plastics, silicones and fiberglass.
The floor can either be of marble that is naturally obtained or of synthetic tiles made of plaster. Both have calcium carbonate their structural component. But the key difference here is that marble is a naturally occurring building material while the ceramic tiles are synthetically processed. Both have their own benefits and drawbacks. Marble floors and shelves give a natural look and the designs are more visually appealing. Marble is usually the more expensive of the two options, especially when it is not locally sourced and has to be obtained by importing it.
However, the cost of marble is usually affordable if it is mined locally. Marble in its raw form needs minimal processing. With a bit of cutting and polishing, it can be converted into a usable form. Finished marble is truly versatile and can be used in a variety of kitchen renovations in Hornsby. Barring the slightly higher cost, marble is usually the better of the two options. Ceramic tiles used to be of a low quality in that they were not strong enough to withstand pressure and were prone to cracking. However, recently moulding techniques have resulted in a higher quality tiles that are of a better quality and are stronger than their old counterparts. Ceramic tiles also have the added benefit of being cheap, lighter and easier to install than marble tiles. And while marble is more prone to corrosion and being damaged by acidic liquids, the newer varieties of ceramic tiles are very resistant.
The cost of a kitchen’s design ultimately depends on the choice of installed components. Cheaper components might appear attractive upfront but they do not offer the same resilience, durability or level of service. When selecting the individual components of a kitchen, it is important to not compromise on quality because of affordability.
