Design it your way
Choosing a kitchen style
When choosing a Kitchen style it is important to think in the long term. Choose a look that fits in with the style of your home. Remember you’ll be living with this kitchen for years. Make sure that the colour and style are exactly what you’re after.
The price is dictated by the style and materials of the units you choose. These units come in a variety of sizes which make the most of the space available. Take note of the amount of storage you need and the size of the kitchen itself.
Think long term
Choosing your worktop
Worktops come in a variety of materials. They work very hard in the kitchen so be sure to choose a material that suits your needs.
The work triangle
The majority of Kitchen layouts are based around the idea of the ‘work triangle’. The ‘work triangle’ positions the fridge, cooker and sink in the most efficient locations to ensure the best use of space and time.
When you are happy with the proposed design of your new kitchen it’s time to decide on your appliances. Would you like to integrate them into the kitchen or choose stylish models that compliment your new room.
oven, hob and hood
You should choose an oven, hob and hood that fully compliment you kitchen. Think about how you like to cook and as always keep your budget in mind.
sink and taps
Choose from stainless steel, ceramic or granite. The sink is one of the most used items in the kitchen and should suit your lifestyle. Stainless steel is long lasting and durable. Ceramic is easy to clean, whilst granite adds an element of style. There is a vast variety of choices and of course there are the taps to consider.
Dishwashers now come in a wide variety of sizes to suit all kitchens. These are best situated near the sink to keep plumbing in the one place.
Complete the look
Finally it’s time for the finishing touches. Choose handles, splash backs and lights that help you get the look you
set out to achieve.
