A dream kitchen, is something you've heard time and time again. Is it a convection oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator or a family to join in on the family fun? No one really knows—but one thing we do know is that a dream kitchen depends on logistics and facts: How your kitchen provides for needs and how it can provide for your lifestyle is what makes a kitchen work. 

We have featured six main components that every kitchen needs in order to be a dream kitchen. Some mean making an investment by the use of expensive appliances and professionals and others mean that you just need to add some love to your kitchen. These options don't depend on size, style or anything else, besides needs and budget. So give them a look and make some serious decisions for 2017!

1. Easy-to-clean floors

Tiles, wood and concrete are the three most popular flooring options when it comes to kitchens. They're resistant to spills, scratche and any types of messes and require minimal maintenance. If you decide on under-floor heating, that's a great option and it also requires minimal maintenance. These three options are great for any style home and if you keep them clean and re-seal them every other year, they'll last your lifetime. 

2. Clever storage

Small and large kitchens alike need some serious storage space and organisation. You can either hire a professional company to keep your storage up-to-date or you can try to make the measurements and cuts yourself. Either way, ample and organised storage makes for a healthier and happier family and this kitchen provides both cupboards and exposed shelving. Combinations make life work.

3. Inclusive of fresh ingedrients
