9 tips for designing your perfect kitchen

Your ideal kitchen design must be practical. But it should also be a place you love to be in.
When you’re planning your ideal kitchen, we recommend you think about the following elements: –


Ample kitchen storage

Some people say they never have enough storage space for all their crockery, cutlery, pots, and pans. With good planning and using the latest kitchen storage solutions, we can design your kitchen, so you have an easy-to-access place for everything.


Oodles of bench space

Having plenty of room for food preparation and for your appliances is an essential for your new kitchen. A hard-wearing, easy to clean bench space is a must. Consider your kitchen workflow and design your bench space so everything you need is within reach.


Lighting where you need it

Illuminating your kitchen workspace properly is a must. You’ll also want to think about having the right ambient lighting to foster a comfortable living space. Accent lighting using LED strips is popular.


Well-placed power points

A modern kitchen is equipped with all sorts of electrical devices, so it’s worth visualising where you’ll need power points. As well as needing power sockets for your major appliances like your fridge, oven, cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster, there’s also coffee machines, mixers, and an array of hand-held devices. Hidden power sockets also offer a cleaner, less cluttered look.


Effective ventilation and extraction

It’s essential your kitchen has good airflow and is equipped to deal with cooking odours, smoke, and steam. Installing a quality range hood and effective ductwork is all part of designing a comfortable, healthy kitchen environment.


Convenient rubbish and recycling bins

Design your kitchen to make it easy to collect and recycle waste. Not only will integrating rubbish and recycling bins into your joinery maintain a streamlined look, it will help reduce your environmental impact and make your kitchen a more sustainable space.


A style that suits your personal taste

Designing your ideal kitchen can be a big investment of time and money. Do your research and make sure you know what you like. Clearly communicate your vision to your designer. Most of our clients use Pinterest or Instagram – or even tear sheets from magazines – to research the latest kitchen designs.


A comfortable kitchen layout

Designing for free-flowing ‘traffic’ through your preparation area is an important element of your kitchen design. Our designers can help you make the most of the space you have to work with.


A design to suit your lifestyle

Whether you’re looking for a fresh, contemporary design, a Hamptons-style kitchen, a traditional or industrial look, it helps to research the type of kitchen you’ll feel happy in.
