The kitchen happens to be the busiest room in the house and one where layout is critical, as the room is regarded as a communal centre for the family, as well as being the cooking and dining area. You may have heard of the ‘kitchen triangle’, which is a system that puts the sink, cooker and fridge in a triangular layout for easy access. Of course, it all depends on how much space you have in this most important of rooms. Here are a few tips to ensure that your kitchen layout is suitable.
- Talk to a Kitchen Designer – Perhaps the most obvious suggestion, no one knows more about kitchen designs than an interior designer, especially one that works for a kitchen renovation company. The ideal solution is to call on a specialist company who can handle the entire project from design and planning, through to the final client inspection, while keeping you informed every step of the way.
- Don’t Skimp on Major Kitchen Appliances – These are the most expensive items in your kitchen revamp and you should look no further than the top brands, even if they are a little pricey. Always read the online customer reviews for fridges, freezers, cookers and washing machines, or indeed any appliance you are thinking of buying. If the general consensus if that the appliance works great and has no issues, this is more than a little comforting. Longevity and durability are both required in any kitchen and that demands quality materials and appliances.
- Look for Design Inspiration – Google Images is your best friend when it comes to looking for kitchen design inspiration; whether country, modern or contemporary, browse through the many fine examples until you find something that really works.
- Set Yourself a Budget – Rather than selecting the best of everything and totalling up the cost, it is wiser to first decide on how much you are willing to invest in the project and work to staying within that. The kitchen renovation firm would like to know your budget, as this gives them something to aim for and when an agreement is reached, the quote would be all-inclusive.
