Our Top 5 Kitchen Design Principles


Hey there, let’s talk kitchen design – because who doesn’t love a space that’s both stylish and functional, right? At Badel, we’re all about crafting kitchens that not only look amazing but also work like a dream. Here’s how we approach it:


#1 Importance of functionality in kitchen design

Okay, let’s be real – a kitchen that doesn’t function well is like a car without wheels. It might look good, but it’s not getting you anywhere. That’s why we make functionality our top priority. We want your kitchen to be a place where cooking is a breeze, where everything has its place, and where you can move around with ease.


#2 Incorporating the “kitchen triangle” in layout

Ever heard of the kitchen triangle? It’s basically the secret sauce of kitchen design. Your stove, fridge, and sink should form a triangle to make cooking and cleaning a whole lot easier. Our designers are pros at weaving this into your layout, so you can spend less time running laps around the kitchen and more time enjoying your culinary creations.


#3 Utilizing vertical space for storage

Let’s face it – we could all use a little more storage space in the kitchen. That’s where vertical storage comes in. From sleek shelves to handy hooks, we’ll help you make the most of every inch of wall space, keeping your countertops clutter-free and your ingredients within arm’s reach.


#4 Choosing materials for durability and ease of maintenance

Your kitchen takes a beating – spills, splatters, and more spills. That’s why we’re all about choosing materials that can take the heat (literally). Think durable countertops that can handle your chopping and slicing and floors that are a breeze to clean up after that accidental sauce spill.


#5 Balancing aesthetics with practicality in design

Sure, your kitchen should look good – but it should also work hard. We believe in finding the perfect balance between style and functionality, so you can have a kitchen that’s not only easy on the eyes but also a joy to cook in.

Kitchen Layouts – What You Need to Know

At Badel Kitchens, we’re all about creating spaces that make your daily cooking and entertaining a delight. Each kitchen layout has its own perks and quirks. Let’s dive into kitchen layouts, the pros and cons of each layout and how to find the perfect one for your home.


Galley kitchens

Great for small spaces and efficiency, with everything within easy reach. But they can feel a bit cramped if not designed well.

L-Shaped Kitchens

These offer plenty of counter space and room for multiple cooks but might lack a central gathering spot.

U-Shaped Kitchens

Perfect for those who love lots of storage and counter space. However, they can feel enclosed if not balanced with open elements.

Island Kitchens

These provide additional workspace and a social hub but need sufficient space to avoid feeling crowded.

How to determine the best layout for your space and needs

Choosing the right layout starts with understanding your space and how you use your kitchen. Do you love hosting large gatherings, or is it more about intimate family dinners? Are you short on space, or do you have room to spare? Our experts will assess your kitchen’s dimensions, your cooking habits, and your lifestyle to recommend the best layout for you.


Designing for efficient workflow in the kitchen

Efficiency is key in the kitchen. We focus on creating a smooth workflow by placing your stove, sink, and fridge in a convenient triangle. This “kitchen triangle” minimizes movement and makes cooking and cleaning a breeze. We also ensure that your prep areas are logically arranged, so everything you need is always within arm’s reach.


Maximizing space in small kitchens

Small kitchen? No problem! We specialize in maximizing every inch of your space. From clever storage solutions like pull-out cabinets and vertical shelving to choosing compact, multifunctional appliances, we make sure your small kitchen is as functional and stylish as any larger space.


Incorporating an island or breakfast bar in kitchen layout

If you have the room, an island or breakfast bar can be a game-changer. It provides extra prep space, additional storage, and a casual dining area. Plus, it’s a great spot for guests to gather while you cook. We’ll help you determine the best size and placement to ensure it enhances your kitchen without overwhelming it.

We’re here to guide you through every step of the design process.

The difference a kitchen designed by experts can make

How kitchen designers take your kitchen from just good to something great


You might be wondering why you should employ the services of a Sydney kitchen designer to help you with your dream kitchen. Moreover, it is just a new kitchen – how hard can it get?


We often let our clients know that it can be easy to fill their space with bench-tops, cabinets, and drawers, but it gets harder when you desire something more practical, functional, and beautiful.

We are yet to encounter a client who does not desire a wonderful kitchen in all ways. Although we’ve met clients who tell us that they have lived in their house for many years and thus they know what they want exactly in the kitchen, we always try to encourage them to take advantage of the benefits and input a professional kitchen designer can bring to your kitchen project.

The fact that you know the space well might also give room for bias when valuable insights are introduced by an expert. Let’s take a different approach to our questions – why risk missing out on valuable, professional assistance from a kitchen design expert?

Benefits of Using a Kitchen Designer


Meeting deadlines and staying within the budget is as vital to us as it is to you. With that in mind, we never cut corners or take shortcuts. We ensure we take all the turns to produce brilliant finishes with quality craftsmanship.

Getting the best that works for you.

A professional designer will talk not only about the size of the space but also about how you will be living in that space and what your particular needs are. A family of 4 has different needs compared to an adult couple, and this affects the overall look and feel of the kitchen.

Some clients just want to cook while some are entertainers.

Everyone can enjoy interesting products such as upholstered furniture, soft-close drawers, pantries, and easy-to-clean tiles. At the end of the day, what matters most to you is crucial when making decisions about all aspects of kitchen design.

Get involved with the latest trends.

Most consumers these days prefer clean lines and no handles. The trend for induction cooktops over their gas counterparts is a perfect example of this. Many people choose steam ovens over microwaves. They prefer an under-mount sink without draining boards. A designer can advise what is best for you and your situation.

Why not try computer software that allows you to stay home and see what the new kitchen will look like in your space? Alternate the colors to see which one is best for you. It is best to look at a computer screen than the lines on the paper.

Designer Know-how.

Experience matters, and our designers know what works in kitchen projects and what doesn’t.

Their professional advice will save you from being stuck at any stage of the project.

They will also tell you about budgeting and how to get the most out of your money.

Design a world-class kitchen.

A kitchen designed in Sydney by us is designed based on quality and functionality. High-quality Australian design materials are essential. They make sure your beautiful new kitchen passes the test of time – still retaining quality in ten years as the first day. In terms of functionality, some designers will push through something that suits them better than you (like many cost-cutting wardrobes) or simply tries to fit the space with too much. Our only concern is what is best for you and a result that best meets everyday needs. Be it a water kettle or a kid’s iPhone being charged on the bench; most kitchens fill up fast. If we did a good design with the decor, when you place your items on top, the kitchen will still look clean and balanced.

We have had a wonderful experience with Badel kitchens and Joinery. We were really lucky to have been referred to them by a colleague who was also impressed with their work. We had just purchased our home and needed to redo the 2 bathrooms and kitchen. From when we first met Zaia for the design and plan to the finish, was such a smooth sailing experience. Zaia and his team Ramon, Ninos, Elias, Aziz, James, Nazzem were just fantastic. They were professional yet so kind and accommodating. We had quite a tight timeline and they were happy to work with our requests and really delivered. They provided a lot of input into design ideas, and even guided us along the way in choosing fittings. Zaia was always contactable and approachable. And at the end, we were so pleased with our remodelled home. I highly recommend this team and they will certainly be part of any future renos/remodels/builds we decide to undertake. Cheers and much thanks to this fantastic team. Thanks for our beautiful home.

We recently did a renovation to our 30 year old kitchen. Having contacted few other places, Badel Kitchen was the only one who actually willing to come and discuss the design before giving us a competitive quote. Other places would prefer us to send them photos and measurements then only they are willing to come if you accept their estimated quote. The team at Badel Kitchen (Zaia, Elias as well as electricians and plumbers which they organised) are very professional and accommodating to our specific requests. Along with few hiccups throughout the process, they were able to move things around without much hassle. Overall, we are satisfied with the quality of their work and would recommend them to our friends and family.

Zaia and the team at Badel did an amazing job with our bathroom renovation. Our ask was to convert a bathroom and laundry space into an ensuite, main bathroom and laundry. Zaia came up with a beautiful design and layout which looked great and was very practical. From the initial consultation to working through the details to the actual work was a very good experience. He made recommendations and his expertise on how to build a great bathroom was obvious and made sure it feel easy. It was a massive job and despite the challenges of the lockdown we are very happy with the result. I definitely recommend Zaia and the team at Badel for bathroom renovations. You will be very impressed with their work and service.

We hired Badel Kitchens to renovate our kitchen and laundry for the purpose of updating the look and establishing more cabinet and bench space. I absolutely LOVE my new kitchen and laundry. It feels like a new house! I am so happy to have gone with Badel for the following reasons: * Badel Kitchens (Zaia) were responsive (throughout the whole project, not just at the sign up), easy to talk to and competitively priced. Zaia was not interested in upselling, he genuinely listened to my needs and planned a kitchen to suit my lifestyle. His experience and understanding showed through suggestions offered. * Quality of the cabinets used is high. And that is their standard range. They have a good range of colour and style to suit many tastes. * ALL tradespeople hired by Badel are professional, highly skilled and clean up after themselves. Genuinely a good bunch of people all round. * Badel Kitchens provided me with clear expectations around the timing of the job including a schedule which they predominantly stuck to. I was never in a situation where i was calling to see where the trades people were. * Zaia's expertise go beyond just kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. The team are experienced at doing large renovation jobs and project manage everything from electrician, plumber, painter, tiler, everything. This made my life a lot easier as Zaia project managed all contractors required. Having two little kids I was a bit overwhelmed by the thought of doing a kitchen reno but Zaia and the team worked seamlessly and efficiently to get the kitchen up and running as soon as possible. They were fast but never compromised on the quality of the job. Zaia is a perfectionist and did routine inspections to ensure things were up to scratch. He never had a problem with any request, he always made it work. If you are thinking of renovating, i assure you will have a great experience with Badel Kitchens. There is a reason they have so many 5 star reviews. Big thanks to the whole Badel team for such a fantastic job.

Hi Zaia Thank you so much for assisting us in designing our dream home office (and TV unit joinery). Having been working from home for now 4 years, setting up a proper home office had now become a necessity. After speaking to a few other service providers, I came across Badel Kitchens. The service offered by Zaia from start to finish was really friendly. Despite his busy schedule and client commitments, his attention to detail and project management was spot on. Had we not worked with Zaia, I highly doubt we would have achieved the holistic outcome that we did with Zaia's assistance - this included him providing practical advice on how we should go on about designing our office, the various electrical and data points we should install etc. Zaia coordinated this with his electrician also - this would not have been possible if we were project managing the joinery and electricals ourselves. Nothing was ever too difficult for him to fix for us. We are so appreciative for all the work he has done for us. It is a pleasure spending time in this office. There will be no one but Zaia assisting us in future with any renovations we require - we are clients for life! Thank you so much!

The team at Badel were so wonderful to work with, I cannot stress that enough. Zaia was so patient with all the changes I kept making to the design of our kitchen, was always responsive to our needs, and listened to everything we had to say. Emmanuel and his brother (who did the installation) were great men who took such pride and care in their work. We are so happy with our beautiful new kitchen and laundry, it has modernised our home. They worked around our schedule with a new baby on the way and made sure everything was done quickly but of the utmost quality. If we ever renovate a house again or build in the future we will definitely be going back to Badel. Their professionalism and friendliness made them all so pleasant to work with. I strongly recommend them for any of your home design needs! You will not be disappointed. Thank you again to Zaia and the team for transforming our home.

James takes great pride in his work and has provided magnificent joinery for my home including vanities, built in robes and a wall to ceiling bookcase for our study. The workmanship and professionalism is outstanding. Wish I had come across him sooner. Highly recommend him.

My husband and I recently renovated our kitchen and laundry room just before Christmas 2019. Emanuel of Badel Kitchens & Joinery was highly recommended to us by our friend. We told Emanuel what we want for our dream kitchen. He was very attentive to details during the design process, listening to all we need to make it a functional kitchen. It was a busy time of the year coming to Christmas which made it difficult, but Emanuel and his team worked hand in hand with our builder to accomplish what needs to be done. The journey was not all straightforward but Emanuel managed to coordinate every tradesmen involved in the project. The end result was fantastic. Our friends that came over our place were amazed how our kitchen came out with such a wow factor. My husband and I won't hesitate to recommend Emanuel for his high standard and great quality of workmanship.
