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.

What a kitchen designer and installer can help with:

  • Planning and designing new kitchens.
  • Measuring out work areas.
  • Ripping out and disposing of old units and appliances.
  • Marking the location of pipes and cables.
  • Measuring and cutting worktops, recesses and joints.
  • Fitting new units and appliances.
  • Tiling walls and laying flooring.

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.

Kitchen worktop prices

Kitchen worktops can come in a variety of materials that will certainly have a substantial effect on the total prices. Easy laminate work surfaces, which might scratch, stain or blister in time, can be priced at less than ₤ 500.

Strong lumber surface areas will be extra pricey, while much more expensive once more are granite and also quartz worktop alternatives, which are unbelievably hard-wearing and can last for several years - rates for these can go to the countless pounds, depending upon the quantity required.

How Can a Kitchen Designer and Installer help?

At the initial stage, they’ll help with the design of your kitchen. It’s important to consider the placement of all your appliances and work surfaces, so that they’re in practical locations, and within budget. Your kitchen designer will be able to advise on all of this.

Once everything’s decided, they will remove everything that needs to go, and then mark out all the new positions. After that it's on with installing the cupboards and appliances, followed by the finishing touches – tiles, floors, doors…

New Kitchen FAQs

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.

What is a shaker kitchen?

Birthed in the late 1700s, the shaker kitchen has stood the test of time and remains incredibly popular till date. It was discovered by a religious community had a strong belief in honesty as well as simplicity and said every object inside a home must have a practical use. The shaker cabinet features a square frame and a recessed panel profile. With the use of mid-rails, the panel can be divided into multiple sections. They were originally made from pine, cherry or maple wood, but they’re now manufactured from better quality woods like oak. Basically, the essence of a shaker kitchen is the timber’s quality as well as the fundamental functionality of the cabinet.

The style of shaker cabinet kitchens is usually an uncluttered and organized approach to design. This classic, timeless and uncomplicated design complements both country and classic style kitchen and also a more modern environments. They tend to create a detailed or more minimal appearance by using plain or bevelled recessed panels. The colour schemes, on the other hand, are somewhat muted to maintain an elegant and simple design - a hand painted finish which adds a sophisticated feel to the cabinet kitchen. A very common addition to shaker cabinet kitchens are kitchen islands which enhances the space’s functionality.

Generally, modern shaker kitchens are available in a wide array of colours such as white, grey, blue, wood grain and more. This way, you get to find the most suitable colour for your kitchen. You get to choose from a large selection of classic colour palette which enables you to achieve a customized kitchen that complements your home perfectly well.

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 does it cost to replace a kitchen?

If your old kitchen is due for an upgrade, one of the first things that comes to is the potential cost of a getting replacement. In this post, we’re going to consider the amount a new kitchen is expected to cost. Let’s take a look!

 

Generally, fitted kitchen prices can be extremely high and even a budget project can cost huge bucks. In addition, you’re even likely to pay more if you’re interesting in getting a designer brand and shiny appliances. So how much will a new kitchen? Well, there’s no simple and direct answer to this question as there are a number of factors that play a major part in the determination of the price. These factors include the shape of the kitchen, the most preferred layout as well as the kitchen’s size.

 

On the average, a new kitchen will normally be around £8000. You should however note that this price is fitting and VAT inclusive, but excludes appliances and any preparation works that may or may not be required such as plastering walls, removing wallpaper as well as ripping out the old kitchen.

 

If you wish to keep the costs down, then you might want to set a budget before you start shopping for a new kitchen, know your most preferred kitchen and remove the old kitchen yourself. A good example of DIY effort which can go a long way to save and even make you some bucks is taking out the old cabinets by yourself and selling them off. You’d be amazed that there’ll people who are willing to pay £20 or more for a couple of old cupboards.

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 depth should my cooker be?

Most cookers have a depth of 60cm. This matches the standard depth of kitchen cabinets. However, you can get cookers and work surfaces that are shallower or deeper.Range cookers usually look best if they match the surfaces next to them. If you want your electric range cooker to do this, make sure you measure your work surfaces before you go looking for a cooker.

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.

Does my cooker need a plinth?

A plinth is a solid base that your cooker can sit on. It raises your cooker up from the ground and makes it easier to use. It will also make your cooker look in-keeping with your kitchen units if they sit on plinths too. However, a range cooker can also work effectively and look good without a plinth. If you don’t want one, make sure you check that the cooker you want doesn’t come with or need a plinth before you buy it. If you want to fit one in your home and are looking for an installer, we can help. Fill in our online form and we’ll put you in touch with up to 4 electricians in your local area.
