Kitchen is the soul of our home. It’s not a place that you can avoid (we all eat right?) and usually is the place that attracts guests the most. I want to share some tips and advice from my own experience.
Opt in for the drawers in the bottom units. It is much easier to pick something from there than going all the way down.
Shop around for the best price. Do not sign up for the first offer if you don’t feel comfortable. Not sure if it’s still within your budget or you feel that the designer does not quite get you? Go somewhere else. Read this post by Jen Wilson ‘How to identify a good kitchen designer’
Choose a freestanding fridge instead of a build-in. You will save hundreds by doing just that.
Get an eye-level built-in oven for a few reasons: easier to clean, better view on your Sunday roast or cake, less steam coming straight into your face, more kids friendly (less buttons clicking).
If your kitchen is walk through, make sure nothing is going to be in the way. Even a few extra inches of units/worktop/furniture obstructing your way will make your space feel smaller and your life miserable.
On a budget? Save money by getting cheaper base units and spend it on a high quality worktop that you REALLY like.
And my personal favourite: play with a colour. Don’t be afraid to use some colour. Kitchen was built for that. Go for a little accent if you’re not sure or go wild.
