There are a lot of things to be taken into consideration while redesigning your kitchen.

Kitchen Design

Let’s start by looking at a few of the issues you should think about prior to starting your design.

Considerations

Unless you happen to be a millionaire, you need to think in terms of longevity.  Not only should your kitchen design be functional and user friendly but it needs to be equipped to last for at least 10 to 15 years. So make sure you think about what you really need from a kitchen and invest in the best quality materials you can afford.

You can actually learn a lot about what you need from your new kitchen design, by looking at your existing layout. For instance, does a lack of space for food preparation annoy you? If so, perhaps this is something you’ll look to rectify. That’s just one example. Remember, be critical of your old kitchen to make your new one even better.

You might also ask yourself ‘do I have enough storage?’ There’s nothing worse than not having somewhere to store all you bits and bobs. Conversely, there’s such a thing as to much storage and you don’t want your kitchen to be full of unused cupboards and draws that eat up much-needed space.

Taking the time to address each of these considerations and think about each small point, will benefit you greatly when designing your new kitchen.

Kitchen design tips

The first thing practical thing to do is take accurate measurements and draw up a floor plan being sure to mark where any existing doors, windows, power points and pipes are. Not only does this give you an excellent idea about the space, but it will help suppliers, fitters and any other professionals you consult.

One big decision to make is whether or not you want to drastically change the layout of your kitchen. Bear in mind if your thinking of moving your appliances this could lead to moving power points and pipes which will inevitably hike up your costs.

A good money-saving tip is to keep all waterborne appliances such as the sink, dishwasher and washing machine close together as this will make the plumbers job easier and cheaper.

If you’re determined to design a kitchen that functions with military precision, you may also want to consider what designers call ‘the work triangle’. This is a term for the grouping of your major appliances (conventionally the sink, oven and fridge) in a triangle formation, making it a more efficient work space.
