Principles of Kitchen Design

We all know that in Australia the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the houses and it is the room the “sells the house”. We, at Cipriano Italian Home Design, can think of several good reasons to share this principle, but the one and most important one is that it is the only place in our homes where the best family stories are built and shared. We have made up a simple list with 10 reasons why we think it is more than reasonable to invest in a unique Italian designed kitchen.


Principle number 1: Golden Triangle for an efficient kitchen

The Golden Triangle theory, which consists of connecting the main working areas of your kitchen, was developed by the School of Architecture of the University of Illinois in the 40s. It states that there should not be more than 2.7mt between these areas: Fridge, Preparation, Cooking.


Romantic Scandi Style Kitchen

The classic Nordic style, or Scandi style as we like to call it, is characterised by white and luminous kitchens that inspire an authentic romantic air and welcome relaxation and enjoyment in our daily routine.


These kitchens have framed fronts with metal, brushed stainless steel handles, no handles at all and stone or wood looking workbenches. A black exhaust fan, like the one in our kitchen showroom in Byron Bay, may become the focal point of your kitchen design.


If you are considering designing your kitchen in Nordic or Scandi style then you are on the right track. Due to its versatility, simplicity and the use of natural materials the result is a timeless kitchen you will enjoy many years to come.

Focal Point for you Home Decor


A focal point is the most conspicuous detail in a room that defines a space and gives it an enchanting flair. A stunning focal point captures the attention of anyone who walks in and creates the wow effect, elevating home décor while also stating the purpose of a room. Creating a beautiful focal point is fairly easy if you combine the right elements and find a way to accentuate this mesmerising feature.

Bathroom Styling in Pastel Colours

In our project's blog, you can find lots of ideas to style and decorate any area of your home with the most varied options from vintage to modern furniture, from classic tiles to modern technologies and bespoke Italian ceramics.

In this new article, we'd like to concentrate a bit on soft, pastel colours for your bathroom without losing focus on the neutral style most Aussies prefer! Your bathroom will become the modern and comfortable room you have been dreaming of. Soft, pastel colours will give your bathroom an elegant and modern style.


Soft colours such as washed out pinks, worn out blues, light yellows, lilacs and soft greens are some of the most common ones. Take a look at Marazzi’s Chroma range for example or the Arbi Maison bathroom vanity collection.

A clever idea is to make a soft light green the central focus in your bathroom. Green is a jolly colour that reminds us of trees or large grassy areas with all the energy they spread out. Its pastel version transmits the calm and relax we need when we take a shower or want to have some private time in our bathrooms.

Energy Efficient Master Bathroom


For most homeowners, having a gorgeous master bathroom is a must, as it’s one of the last quiet and private retreats in the home, where you can get away from the daily noise at the end of a busy day. The luxury features and comfort that were once limited only to exclusive daily spas are now easily incorporated into regular home master bathrooms.

Nowadays, with the increasing awareness of water shortage and depletion of Earth’s resources, being as energy-efficient as possible has become an integral part of bathroom renovation projects.

All bathrooms in one home, including the master, consume a lot of water and energy on a daily basis, so the main goal is to reduce the energy consumption in order to be more efficient. Here are four basic solutions that you can easily incorporate into your master en-suite in order to reduce your water usage by almost a half.
