Kitchens used to be hidden-away work spaces, but today they’re rooms in which we spend huge amounts of time. Not only do they need to offer the preparation and cooking facilities to suit all the home’s occupants, but they must also be a stylish space, we enjoy being in.
Choosing a new kitchen is one of the most exciting projects when it comes to renovating your home. But, it can also be the most expensive, stressful and time-consuming. From choosing the right style and layout to finding a designer, there’s a lot to take on board. However tempted you are to rush into a showroom and choose your design, it’s vital that you take time to consider what it is you really want. This is where Haddington-based Forever Spaces can help. With a focus on clever interior design and space-saving storage solutions, they design and fit bespoke, quality and luxurious kitchens. Plus they’re suppliers of quality products from Neff, Caple, Bosch and Siemens. Forever Spaces kitchen designer Maria shares her expert tips for creating your forever kitchen.
1. Consult a kitchen designer
Consulting a kitchen designer can prove invaluable. Their experience and expertise will offer you plenty of simple ideas – as well as innovative ones – that you might not have even considered.
2. Assess all your needs
Take time to explore the options available. Make a list of your requirements and rate them. Think about what you like and dislike in your current kitchen. This will enable your designer to create a clear design brief.
3. Think about space and storage
Consider your kitchen must-haves. Do you need lots of cupboards for storage? What will be on display? Are the appliances in the correct place? Are there specific appliances which will make your life in the kitchen easier?
4. Call in the professionals
It’s important to remember that the way your kitchen is installed can make all the difference. At Forever Spaces our talented in-house team of craftsmen take pride in their work and focus on ensuring your installation is as hassle-free as possible.
