When it comes to the kitchen, function and style are essential. It’s less about square metres and all about how this space performs – allowing you to cook and manage other household activities.
When designing a new kitchen, there are several important considerations to make concerning appliances and zones for preparing, cooking, cleaning and storing kitchen essentials. Whether you’re designing the butler’s pantry of your dreams or renovating a small kitchen, specialist advice can make all the difference.
What is a kitchen designer?
The designer is responsible for developing the concept and layout of your kitchen. At the end of this stage, a completed plan and design drawing will be finalised and ready for tradespeople to commence building.
A kitchen designer will take the time to look at your existing home and lifestyle requirements. This will help them to design a kitchen that suits your needs today and into the future.
How can a kitchen designer help you?
A kitchen designer will spot hidden problems at the planning stage which save on costly revisions down the track. They will make sure measurements, building standards, such as ventilation and fireproofing and fixtures are correct and of high quality. Kitchens are a fantastic opportunity to showcase a home’s identity and style, so interior design can transform this room from a generic cooking space, to a more inspiring or soothing sanctuary to cook and socialise.
A kitchen designer will also provide insight into spatial planning. The question of what goes where may seem simple, but the correct placement of key kitchen elements is vital. It can mean the difference between easily cooking for an event or lacking bench space. Or the difference between a well-planned storage vs sifting through vast cupboards.
Perhaps best of all, a kitchen designer consults with you to decide on fixtures and fittings. Their expertise makes selecting counter tops, sinks, taps, shelving, cabinetry and whatever else you need in your kitchen a hassle-free process. They can advise on durability, function and style so you save on hours on online research.
Because of their experience, our designers know the latest trends and materials, or the classics used in today’s kitchens. We can help design you a kitchen that creates a striking or calming effect, while being energy efficient. We can also design a kitchen that is easy to maintain or the most durable for your lifestyle.
