Kitchen Design – Assessing your needs
Before any kitchen design project can begin, you have to access what you have, what the space will allow you to actually have and what will work best for you and your family’s needs. If you have a large family and do a lot of cooking then the cooker choice is important along with the preparation area.
What sort of budget do you have as this could determine wither you remodel, you might be surprised how a few decorative changes can re vitalise a kitchen before considering tearing the whole room apart and starting again.
Kitchen design – hire a professional
If budget is not a concern getting a professional company to carry out the design and build is the best option, however you will need to have a huge say in the design as well. Start thinking about how to accommodate everyone who lives in the house, what are their needs and aspirations. Do you or anyone in the home have any special interests that will need to be considered in the kitchen area, think about things like laundry, storage, safety, if you need to watch small children while cooking.
What is your must have list, don’t get this confused with your nice to have list. Involve the whole of the family at this stage and consider all of their wishes, even the pet dog. Consider your existing homes architecture and decorative style, is this to be incorporated with the new kitchen?
