Designing Your Kitchen

Preparation is key to buying a new kitchen; otherwise you could end up with something which doesn’t meet your needs.

Now is the time to think about what works currently within your kitchen space and what you definitely want to avoid.  This allows you to ensure our designer is given the clearest brief of your requirements.

The following are areas to think about before embarking on your project:

  • Do you have a preference for the height of your wall units – either  570mm, 720mm or 900mm or are you looking to keep your wall space free?
  • Do you prefer a drawer-line (drawer and door joined) or highline door (door only) option?
  • Are you looking for a modern sleek design or a character feel?
  • Do you want your kitchen to align with the period of your property?
  • Are you intending to have a dining area; somewhere for the children to do their homework or a space for friends to sit over a glass of wine whilst chatting?
  • Do you need a large preparation area?
  • Is storage your prime concern or do you want to incorporate feature units, such as glass cabinets, open units etc?
  • Have you considered your choice of handles; they can make a dramatic difference to the overall look and feel of your kitchen?
  • How many cutlery / tea towel drawers do you like?
  • Do you have any health issues and need your new kitchen to accommodate these?
  • What is your Budget? We all have a budget and a lot of wasted time can be eliminated if you are honest with the designer, enabling them to point you in the right direction re your choices
