Thanks to Fisher & Pakyel for sharing their Kitchen Design Guide.
It’s easy to get ahead of yourself and start thinking colour schemes and stone benchtops and nifty drawer inserts as soon as you decide to renovate or design a new kitchen. But, before you pick out the paint swatches, you need to work out the best use of space for how you live. Ask yourself Do you entertain often? Do you cook together? Do you cook at all? Do you have toddler triplets who want to make their own breakfasts or teens raiding the fridge at all hours? Do you pick up groceries every day or once a fortnight? Work out how you and your family will use your kitchen because this will impact everything from the materials to the appliances. You might need a complete overhaul or you might be after a small facelift. Being clear about your needs and aspirations will make the entire process faster and better.
