After deciding how you want to use your kitchen, it will be clearer which designer features could be introduced to improve the functionality and the aesthetic of your space.
From clever storage solutions solutions to store away kitchen essentials, to a feature island with integrated seating for family dining, to an impressive wine cooler or American fridge freezer- writing down your feature requirements in terms of priority will help us to understand what you’re looking for from your dream kitchen.
As it becomes clear the demands you will be placing on your new kitchen, it’s time to consider the finer details you would like to incorporate into your design. From a practical perspective, you need to consider the appliances, worksurfaces, storage solutions, sink and tap- both in terms of appearance and functionality.
You may already have a look and style in mind for your space, but it would be a great idea to collect inspiration from magazines, websites, brochures and social media, so that you can present these to us at the design stage.
Lighting is no longer just a kitchen accessory, it’s a necessity, offering benefits for both the practicality and aesthetic appeal of your kitchen design.
To plan lighting effectively, you will need to consider the times you use your kitchen the most, the areas you will need the best visibility- such as food preparation areas and in dark cupboards- and whether you want to use a combination of functional, task lighting and mood/ambience lighting.
