Tip 1 - Assess all your needs
Choosing a new kitchen is one of the most exciting projects when it comes to renovating the home.
Whether this is your first, or you need a little help with planning your second or even third design, then read on.
First of all, have a clear-out, so you’re not adding in items you haven’t used for years. Now take a look around your current kitchen and make a list of all the things you like and dislike about it. This could be anything from how much storage there is – and where it is – to the types of appliances and colour of the cabinetry. This will help you focus on retaining or improving particular aspects.
Think about whether the actual space works for you or if it needs opening up or even extending. The most common building work involves knocking down a wall between kitchen and dining room, so consider creating a more open plan feel if you have the chance.
It might help to ask yourself a few questions about how you want to use the space. Do you need a place to prepare meals, or are you dreaming of a multi-functional area where you can also have lunch or dinner with family and friends? Who do you cook for, what do you cook and how do you cook it?
Start by starting. Don't rush in, but also don't procrastinate. You can't take step 2, until you take step 1!
