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.

Disadvantages for Kitchens

  • The kitchen is the certainly the most expensive room in the home to redesign. Worktops, cabinets, oven and flooring quickly add up to be an expensive investment
  • It's often time consuming and your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house you use it multiple times a day so it will cause a lot of disruption
  • Going with the latest trends can leave you with a kitchen that looks very dated in a few years... those purple cabinet doors looked very modern when they were installed but now?

Kitchens FAQs

Will I need to replace my appliances?

Not if you don’t want to! The size of many appliances is standardised, meaning they should fit in to any new kitchen. Ask an experienced kitchen designer or installer if you’re not sure if your current appliances will fit into a new kitchen, and of course, new cupboards and worktops can be fitted around your existing appliances if you are keep them!

What types of worktops are available?

There are a huge range of worktops on the market. In terms of material, worktops can be laminate, wood, natural stone (granite etc.) or metal. Worktops are available in a massive variety of styles and colours, to suit any style of interior decoration.

How long will it take to install my kitchen?

This depends on the size of the kitchen and the type of worktops and appliances you are installing, but most kitchen installations will take around 1-2 weeks. Be aware that many kitchen manufacturers have substantial lead times. Tiling or electrical installations may add to this time.

What are the benefits of having a designer design my kitchen?

Working with a designer to plan your kitchen means you’ll get the best possible use out of the space and it maybe that wasted space can be put to good use. Designers can offer you lots of space saving solutions and innovative kitchen units, making your kitchen a truly functional area.

Who can install an electric range cooker?

An electric range cooker should always be installed by a registered electrician. They will be aware of wiring regulations, what sockets are needed and make sure that your cooker is installed safely and correctly. make sure you book one before your new cooker id delivered!

Where can I install an electric range cooker?

You can technically install an electric range cooker anywhere, as long as it’s not in a room containing a bath or shower. Wherever the cooker is, it should be in area with: Cooker, No draughts, sufficient air supply. If you are redesigning your kitchen, check with the designer on where best to locate it.

How much space should I leave on either side of my range cooker?

You can install most cookers flush to the sides of your kitchen cabinets. However, it’s a good idea to leave a gap between them anyway so that your cooker can be serviced, cleaned and moved if necessary. The commonly recommended space is about 2.5mm on each side of your cooker. Some cookers need even more than this, otherwise they can damage your kitchen cabinets. If you’re not sure about what your electric range cooker needs, it’s best to ask your installer or get in touch with the manufacturer.

How much space should I leave between my range cooker and the cooker hood?

Range cooker hoods should be installed between 65 -75cm above the hob. However, you should check installation instructions, as some cooker hood styles need to be installed slightly lower. If you fit your cooker hood too high, it will reduce extraction performance.
