Kitchen design

The kitchen design is something that needs to be considered carefully as there is so much to incorporate into the room. Professional kitchen designers will be able to make the most from any size of kitchen, fitting in all your appliances and necessary sockets.

As the hub of your home it’s important to have something that you’re happy with and will make a big impression when you’re entertaining guests.

By ensuring time and effort is spent on the kitchen and its design, you’ll be able to add value to your home. With the range available for products such as the worktops and flooring, you’ll be able to find something that’s both attractive and has all the necessary qualities.

Kitchen worktop ideas

Your kitchen’s design will inevitably revolve around the worktop. The cabinets and the flooring especially will be based on which material and colour you opt for, so it’s worth spending time to consider your options.

  • Natural stone worktops

Marble and granite are two examples of natural stone worktops and their main quality is strength and durability. They can resist impacts whilst being hardwearing and water resistant. Combined, these properties make natural worktops an obvious choice for the kitchen and many designers will recommend this material.

  • Laminate worktops

If you’re on a tight budget but still want to create a great look in your kitchen for little cost, laminate worktops could be your answer. They’re made specially to replicate other materials, such as wooden or stone worktops. Laminate worktops will last for years but don’t have the same hardwearing properties of stone and can easily be scratched. This makes chopping boards a necessity.

  • Wooden worktops

If it’s the aesthetic appeal you’re after, nothing beats wood as a worktop material. Wooden worktops are great for traditional looks and have some fantastic qualities for the kitchen including durability and water resistance. One problem is that they will scratch easily, but this is countered by cutting boards.

A mixed bag, sadly. Dennis (the owner / designer) did visit quickly to discuss the design, and gave us a very competitive price for replacing our old kitchen. One of our other quotes used the same units / doors / appliances, and the price was very good by comparison. The product is fine - very nice units / doors, and we specified the brand we wanted for the appliances we needed (Bosch) so know these are good. However, as set out an an earlier review, what let the whole thing down badly was the appalling and shoddy workmanship by the fitter. Unfortunately, the fitter we had been promised, and had met, was not available, and was replaced at short notice. His replacement was what can only be described as a “Jack of all trades and master of none”. Our kitchen design is quite simple, and we were told it would take a week. The fitter was on site for 2 weeks, and when he left, the kitchen was not even complete, and we had a huge list of snags and issues. Unfortunately, during the fitting, Dennis had a family issue (and we are not unsympathetic to that) but it made contacting him difficult, he had to be away from home quite a lot of the time, and so was unable to effectively project manage. Dennis did provide an alternative fitter, who completed and cleared some of the issues, but not all. This work was to an acceptable standard. Ultimately, Dennis was open to discussion about financial compensation, which we will use toward completing the kitchen.

As work is not complete even though was promised end of December 2017 now May 2018 and still not finished. Spend many hours chasing up taking time off work only to be let down time after time. The excuses given were just that excuses, always someone else's fault. Worthy of note this company does not take responsibility for the work done as it is all subcontracted out. All in all a very expensive lesson in how not to procure a quality service. Felt very let down and aggrieved by the whole process. I would advise to consider carefully before using Steve Brooks design as what is promised and what is delivered are poles apart. In this review the 4 stars are given based on the initial. Home consultation where timings, completion dates are all promised. Once money is handed over the actual service provided bears no resemblance to what is provided. I could go on, but in my opinion anyone must think very carefully before using this company.

A couple of 'snags' regarding measurement and cupboards needing extra small 'fill in' panel. Waiting for either my tiles or money back on them. Job done in a day, small job.

About UK

Energy Performance of Houses

Properties are given an energy rating based on how efficient they are and ratings are displayed in the information underneath. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less expensive energy bills as more heat shall be retained in the house. It is possible to boost your home's efficiency with insulation including double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
