Deciding the style and level of quality of the kitchen that works for your space should be one of the first considerations.
We suggest you kick-start the process by asking yourself these key questions, whilst considering the answers:
– How do you move around your kitchen?
Elements that you often use at the same time (such as the fridge and work surface) should be close together.
– Where do you prepare food?
Put your worktop space where you like to prepare food (possibly next to the hob).
– How much storage do you need?
Do you need / would you like more than you currently have, and would you prefer open shelving or big, deep cupboards?
– Who will you be entertaining in your kitchen?
You may want space for a table and/or an island, where friends and family can sit and talk to you while you work.
– Which utensils and crockery do you use the most?
Ensure they are easily accessible in your design, as if not this will drive you nuts!
– Do you have a lot of gadgets?
If you want them on display, you will need lots of worktop space. If they are to be tucked away, you will need deep cupboards.
– Do you have room for the large appliances you want?
For example, range cookers or American-style fridge freezers will take up a lot of space.
With the right custom kitchen design and execution, you can create a wonderful new zone that not only transforms the way you interact with your living environment, but also adds significant value.
