Planning a Kitchen: Before the Work Begins

Long before you even arrange for builders to enter your kitchen you need to understand exactly what you want, the space around you and how you’re going to utilise your kitchen.

A good first step is to go through all your cupboards and throw away unused kitchen appliances, cutlery and other items that you simply do not use anymore. Not only will this clear your mind but you now have lots more room to play with and to plan with the items that you’re keeping.

Once you’re clutter free, try to imagine how you want to use your kitchen, where you want items placing etc. this can make it much easier to decide if you need a kitchen island or breakfast bar. A good tip to remember is to keep your cooker, hob and sink in a triangle for ease of movement and use.
