Kitchen design made simple

If you are thinking about getting a new kitchen you may already know that it can be an overwhelming decision. There are a lot of things to think about and you can quickly become swamped with abundance of information which most may be irrelevant to your kitchen. Here are a few tips to simplify the information and decisions you need to make. Think of these as bullet points rather than trying to visualise the design yourselves.

 

1. Chose Your Style
Chose a style of kitchen you like, be it traditional, contemporary, handless or painted. Deciding a style of door for your kitchen gives the kitchen designer a starting point for your kitchen design. Handleless style kitchens are designed very differently from a traditional style kitchen as they both have very different vibes and features.

2. Chose Your Appliances
Make a list of the appliance you want to put into the new kitchen. Eye level oven, integrated microwave, range cooker, you may want an american fridge. Again, this all these will help your kitchen designer to create the dream kitchen you are after.

3. Your Wish List
Have a look at you existing kitchen. Ask yourself what is it that you dislike about it. Do you want more storage, more worktop space for serving. Is your space big enough for an island, if so do you want to sit at it? Do you want your hob or sink in it?

4. Your Budget
Budget is very important when designing your kitchen. Obviously, there is the cost for your kitchen but there are other costs that some people may forget to take into consideration. Plumbing and electrical are usually the main additional costs but they are others such as a skip for the removal of your existing kitchen, your flooring may be needed to be replaced, new wall tiles and light fixtures may be required.

How to make the best of your home

Everyone remembers the feelings you had when you first bought your new home. There was a huge sense of excitement. Hope for the future, contentment, relief and satisfaction are emotions that flood to mind. You have a great sense of peace and happiness as to what may come. A chance to start over.  However, when space becomes an issue within your home it can have such a negative impact. You can feel quite claustrophobic. Your home life can become disorganised, chaotic and a complete disarray. Lack of storage can be a huge factor which can cause frustrations and struggles within your home.

 

 

1. Zoning

Very often in small spaces, one room must serve many purposes, multi-functional designs are fundamental.  Creating ‘zones’ within the room, defining space and function which in turn make it easier to organise, providing a calming peaceful environment.

2. Go Up 

When you don’t have a lot of space to work with, getting items off the floor and utilising vertical space is essential. When you can’t get go out, you go up. Creative storage and clever use of space become principal solutions to such design challenges.

3. Optimise

With the housing crisis likely to last for the foreseeable future, what was meant to be your first home may now be your forever home as first anticipate thus why is it so important to optimise every inch of space within your home, creating designs and spatial opportunities to suit each function your family requires.
