Kitchen Designs – The Planning

Going Bespoke
The style of a genuinely bespoke kitchen begins with a blank sheet of paper. This allows you to have furnishings designed and handmade in quality products to suit the measurements of your kitchen and how you use it, so is great for making use of awkward areas, alcoves and corners.

It’s also perfect for conversions of old buildings where you wish to include original architectural functions, such as beams and exposed stone walls, into the kitchen area style.

A custom-made design is based on your choice of door style from the company’s portfolio, with all the cabinets then made to the dimensions you specify. Doors come in a broad series of designs, incorporating a range of materials, surfaces and colours, including hand-painting in any shade you select, so there’s a huge option.

Companies specialising in pre-designed kitchen areas offer a huge variety of door designs, but the cabinets can only be bought in fixed sizes. Nevertheless, this isn’t as restricting as it sounds due to the fact that you might discover 60 or 70 door designs in a variety with 20 to 30 cabinet shapes and sizes, usually in increments of 50mm or 100mm.

The ‘remove’ kitchen area is readily available at DIY shops and Ikea and fills the gap for those who actually wish to stroll into a shop, purchase a cooking area and take it house to install.

Make a list of everything you need to keep away so the designer can plan the right size cabinets in the best location. An island can nearly double the kitchen’s surface and storage space, especially if used for devices.

Other ideas consist of Moben’s pull-out larder that turns 90 °, while Magnet’s laterally opening cabinet doors pull out and to the side for easier access to the entire cupboard.

In open-plan spaces the emphasis is on clutter-free worktops, such as incorporated knife cabinets, incorporated scales, built-in bread drawers with breadboards, and wall-mounted plate racks above the draining board. Walk-in larders and kitchen cupboards with pull-down racks, wine coolers and refrigerated drawers or ice makers, are all ending up being popular, as is the pattern for concealing smaller sized home appliances within cabinets.
