Kitchens are no longer solely for cooking, they are the focal point for socialising, learning and working.


Multifunctional Space is the New Kitchen Requirement

Kitchens are not what they used to be. They have evolved to become the most integral part of new build developments and no longer solely focused on food preparation. Kitchens are now the focal point for socialising, learning and working. Do you have a multifunctional kitchen?

With many people now opting for bespoke home design, the main focus comes down to how their kitchen will be utilised and accommodating the requirement for space. As open-plan living now dominates the required fields for homes, people want more space within the kitchen areas to place certain luxury items and fixtures.


Undoubtedly, the biggest trend in kitchen changes over the past decade with residential property developers has been the desire for the kitchen island.

Whilst once a staple of high-end kitchens, the island has become a must-have over a preference for many homeowners. When it comes to best utilize a multi-space environment of the kitchen, the island and breakfast bar set up adds not only functionality but also value to the home.

Most modern home designs now incorporate some modicum of open space living within the kitchen, and it is down to the acceptance of busier lifestyles without compromising on the overall look. As modern needs changed, kitchens had to have the resources to accommodate them, especially when it came to the prospect of home working.

This rapidly gave way to the kitchen becoming the home hub.

The Desires for Bespoke Kitchen Design

Topping the want list on most homeowners who are wanting their bespoke forever home is the need for a sustainable and eco-friendly kitchen.

People have a keen eye on ways to reduce waste and support their sustainable living plan, leading them to seek out innovation within the home as much as possible to meet both their needs and the care of the environment. The increase in smart home technology and appliances is also on the increase, seeing the future in appliances that can be operated from mobile devices being more efficient and cost-effective.

Along with this trend is the desire to completely erase the line between the living room area and kitchen to make way for a larger living space, where a family is not separated and softer furnishings are making their way into the kitchen.

At Virtu Homes, as property developers, we look to incorporate the needs of the homeowner into every bespoke design to maximise living space and provide functionality with contemporary designs. By working with the homeowner on identifying the must-haves from the like to have, we work on making a forever home that best suits the needs of your family.

I couldn’t be any happier with the work of Virtu Homes with the supply of my husband’s and my dream house. After talks with so many other firms who could not identify the right feel for our intended home, we were completely bowled over by the professional practice in providing the home Virtu has. Minimal fuss and we moved into an incredible house with ease. Virtu Homes we strongly recommend as the go-to business for the best living.

Just genius. Everything that was provided to us by the team at Virtu Homes was 100% on the money and we are greatly satisfied with the results of our new home. We have a lot of guests usually and by taking into account our many family gatherings, they were able to provide a stylish and spacious home fit for a royal visit, let alone our own. Highly recommended.

I cannot fathom the amount of work put in by Virtu Homes over the time in securing the perfect home for my family. After the first initial meetings we are always skeptical that something would always put the spanner in the works in getting the home we wanted. Virtu Homes not only listened to everything we wanted in a home but also went far beyond with the final product. Absolutely wonderful people who have done everything we could have hoped for in providing our beautiful home.
