Once you have purchased the large kitchen appliances which every kitchen needs such as a cooker, fridge freezer and washing machine, there are many other items you can consider to create the perfect kitchen for you. When purchasing the larger appliances it is important to work out exactly what your requirements are, as well as looking at product feedback and energy efficiency ratings. It is worth taking the time to shop around and find exactly what you are looking for, so that the appliance can last you a long time.

The smaller items can open a realm of cooking possibilities, with some items basic such as a cheese grater there are also many new exciting gadgets available on the market. There is a long list of basic staple items which you will probably need to purchase such as a bottle opener, can opener, cups and glasses, this list goes on. 

Although many of these basic items can appear boring and of a standard design there is some useful information to take into consideration. A set of good quality kitchen knives of various sizes and designs can save you lots of time and last you many years. At the very least it would be advisable to purchase a large chef’s knife and a smaller knife, as most of the preparation in a kitchen can be done using these. 

Another staple item is a frying pan, although there are a vast amount available on the market a stainless steel one is ideal. A strong heavy frying pan is versatile and can last a very long time, making them a worthwhile investment for any home. Of the cooking apparel a baking sheet is also a very useful item. The baking sheet is something which can be used for almost any type of oven cooking, as well as a useful tray for barbeques in the summer. The best styles are the larger, non-stick designs as these are the most versatile and last the longest. 

Designing a kitchen and purchasing appliances and gadgets is very much dependent on a person’s style of cooking, we hope this guide has given you some help and inspiration for the basic items.
Below you will find a guide to the various hob types available, and you will also learn what cookware is suitable for each type.   Electric Plate or Portable Gas Hobs These hobs are a great choice if you don’t have the space for a full cooktop, but they’re also great if you need more cookers. Of all the hobs in this guide, these are the simplest, having an on/off switch and limited heat options. We recommend that you choose one with a heat sensor, especially if you have a crowded kitchen or a house full of young children. Portable gas or electric hobs can be used with most cookware, including that made of cast iron, anodized aluminum, ceramic and copper.

Solid Top Hobs The metal plate electric cooker is being replaced by those with ceramic tops. Metal plates emit more heat than their newer counterparts, but these newer hobs are more energy efficient than ever. If you love your solid-top cooker, don’t worry—you’ll be able to find a newer, comparable unit. These hobs are basic, and cleanup is easy. Solid-top hobs can accommodate aluminum, cast iron, ceramic, copper and anodized aluminum cookware.   Glass-top Hobs Glass cooktops have become popular over the last two decades, and are a great choice for newly-built homes. These hobs are easy to use, very functional, energy efficient and simple to clean. The rings underneath the glass top help to prevent heat dissipation, and a glass cooktop is best for those who need versatility and quick heating. A glass-top hob is sleek and modern-looking, but the top is prone to scratching, chipping and cracking. Most cookware can be used with this type of hob, but due to its quick heating, ceramics should be used with caution.

Induction Cooktops Induction cooking is an environmentally-friendly option, as it uses the magnetic characteristics of special cookware to make heat. These hobs do use some electricity, but the amount is far less than a traditional cooker. With an induction hob, electric current is generated by the cookware when it is placed on the cooktop. The main disadvantage to this kind of cooker is that most buyers will have to invest in compatible cookware. However, cast iron, multi-ply and steel cookware will work

Gas Hobs The gas cooktop has been around since the late 19th century, and is still used in professional kitchens everywhere. However, the high cost of gas these days makes them a less economical option. The risk of flare-ups is higher with a gas cooker, but you will still be able to cook in the event of a power outage. A gas cooktop can be used with almost any type of cookware, except ceramics.

Whether you’re looking for simplicity, energy efficiency or a modern look, there’s a hob out there that will suit you perfectly. If you can’t decide between the old and the new, stick with what you know—if you liked your old glass hob, you’ll probably like the new one as well
In the case of the Clifton View 7 Apartment designed by Antoni Associates in Cape Town South Africa, the clients brief was to completely strip out the double-level apartment and to re-configure the interior layout to accommodate four bedrooms, en-suite, a gym, entertainment cocktail bar, cinema room and wine cellar. The site is perched over dramatic boulders and the Atlantic Ocean and experiences sweeping views of the Clifton beaches as well as the Twelve Apostles mountain range. Access is gained to the apartment on the upper level. The dining room, living room and kitchen are open plan and have direct access to the extensive terrace.

Moving through the apartment is a journey of styles and ideas that all fuse together to make the apartment a tailored and personally nuanced space. This tailored look was achieved by avoiding over use of recognizable brand names; the clients instead were keen to create one off signature pieces through the OKHA Design Studio. A feature spiral stair was introduced to link the two levels of the apartment. Feature timber screens extend from the upper level through the upper volume to contain this circulation space. The pool bar leads onto the swimming pool and spa terrace with uninterrupted views of the seascape. The infinity pool allows the eye to flow from the pool to the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.























PMK+Designers recently completed a modern project for a newlywed couple  in Taiwan, entitled “Between Art and Music”. The aim of the apartment was to give the client a night and day difference from their day job where white marble counter tops and bright walls surround their dental clinic. This is a place to clear the mind, a retreat from the bustle of work life. The apartment’s perimeter contains everyday rooms such as the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. The center is a transitional area, a point of entry and a spiritual refuge. The wall which provides backdrop for art work is the center piece of the home.  It was treated as an art piece all by itself.  It had been done and redone with layer after layer of concrete, white concrete, washed paint, and sanded down repeatedly to give that mild texture that you might find in contemporary art paintings.
