The cook in your kitchen
Naturally most kitchens are planned with cooking in mind, if you love to batch bake or even experiment with new culinary dishes, there are lots of design layouts more suitable.
A large bank of built in appliances is ideal. If space becomes an issue or you are limited for space prioritise certain parts and ensure that what you really want earns its place. Built in ovens and combi microwave provides versatility as does a range cooker in size to suit.
A chef’s kitchen will be more suited to having more refrigeration. A large larder style appliance or unit out of the prep area will give you more space and variation. Handy fridge drawers to store frequently used items come in handy too.
Above all be sure to zone all of your areas carefully to ensure that you won’t be walking around unnecessarily or too far between ovens and hob fridges and prep areas, we will guide you through this process giving you the best possible advice you can get.
Modern kitchens move away from food-centric designs towards multi propose open plan designs, they function as brilliant family areas. Making your design reflect daily life and it will work well for relaxing in as well as the children’s homework and frantic breakfast times.
Storage is usual a crucial part of a family kitchen area make sure to utilise plenty of drawers and internal options that are available these can be seen in our showroom. Most of our units can now be used to create furniture around the home too blending colours throughout different rooms gives you a seamless feel.
If space allows you can incorporate a fully built in seating area and table could be a great alternative option to breakfast bars .
Having a fully functioning kitchen that is used every day, a well-designed kitchen should also be able to cater for entertaining when required. Kitchen/Home entertainments are about sleek appliances and craft storage along with seating areas designed to incorporate cooking and socialising.
