How to Take Advantage of Our Kitchen Design Service?

Undertaking a new kitchen can be a daunting prospect. We’re here to try and make this process as simple as possible. We offer a free kitchen design service, this continues right the way through to your kitchen installation.

To help get things off in the right direction we want to highlight the essential information we need plus things to consider when designing your kitchen.

1. Architect’s or Rough Dimensioned Plan

If your project is a new build or extension you more than likely have some architect’s plans. These are really convenient for our kitchen designers to get detailed dimensions to use on our computer software. That said, simple dimensions hand drawn are just as good! Just be sure to mark out windows, doors and any other wall features. These dimensions are then transformed in to a kitchen layout.

2. Appliances, Sinks and Taps

Appliances, sinks and taps play a huge part in any kitchen design. They dictate certain unit sizes and often the design of a kitchen. An exposed American fridge freezer has a much more industrial kitchen feel than if it were to be integrated in to painted cabinets. Similarly a double Belfast ceramic sink is much more suited to a farmhouse kitchen design whereas an under-mounted stainless steel bowl, a contemporary kitchen.

3. Kitchen Cabinetry

As a bespoke kitchen manufacturer this is where our services are truly unique. First and foremost you will need to consider the difference of on-frame and in-frame cabinetry. Once this has been considered we look which materials you would like to use in the kitchen design. You’ll see paint, wood, metal and concrete throughout our bespoke projects.
