How to plan the kitchen of your dreams.

The kitchen is (to many people), one of the most important spaces of the house, so, we need it to be useful, have all the latest gadgets and conveniences, to offer a place to meet as a family and to reflect the style of our homes. So, as you can see, you need to make a great effort to have the kitchen you and your family deserve.

According to, the first step when deciding on a new kitchen is to choose the style. There are many different design styles available. But they basically get into 3 categories; modern, traditional or shaker. Modern kitchens typically have a high-shine, fuss free finish. While simple, modern kitchens can have a real impact and the use of bold colours can deliver that impressive factor you're looking for.

When planning your kitchen, think about how you use the space. if you would like to be able to spend more time together as a family, but don't have room for a table, ask your kitchen fitter whether a breakfast bar could be included. If cooking is your passion, you will absolutely need plenty of storage for ingredients and gadgets, so make this your priority. A useful rule of thumb when considering the location of appliances, is to try to form a trianle between the hob, the sink and the fridge, by doing so, experts believe this will create the most efficient layout, helping your kitchen run smoothly.

For kitchen fitters and skilled tradespeople, managing a customer's expectations and their various requirements is all in a day's work. Many people will only purchase a new kitchen once or twice in their lifetime, so for a kitchen fitter, quiding a customer through the process is an important aspect of the job. When choosing a kitchen fitter, often topping a customer's "need to know" list is, how much it will cost nad how long will it take.

In terms of cost, a kitchen fitter is a skilled tradesperson, so you should budget a reasonable amount to get the work done. As with any work, obtain three quotes for comparison but also consider other factors such as workmanship and recommendations.

Living without a kitchen (even for a few days) can be tough and fitting a new kitchen can take anything from a few days up to two weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the kitchen.

While a skilled tradesperson will be absolutely able to predict how long the kitchen will take, there are always circumstances they cannot control, so the best we can do is to add a day or two to the timeframe.

Once the kitchen is installed, the look can be completed with wall and floor tiles, new paint and accessories. And there you have it! Your dream kitchen completed at last.
