The kitchen is a focal point for any home, and renovating it can feel daunting. It is important to think through exactly what you want and need, how you use the space and what that space can accommodate. A good way to start is with the triangle of movement between fridge, cooker and sink. Your kitchen might suit a galley style or a U or L shape.
Professional kitchen designers can suggest layouts and help you to maximise your space. Even small details, such as the placement of power outlets, can make a big difference. Your kitchen supplier will also ensure that work complies with building and other regulations and that workers have appropriate certification, such as Trustmark. Ensure that you have a proper contract before work starts, and make sure to speak to your neighbours about any possible disruption. When the work is complete, enjoy your newly renovated kitchen.
