KITCHENS PORTSMOUTH

Installing a new kitchen is a costly investment, so take some time planning and preparing beforehand.

Measure up your room and make a drawing, make sure you include doors and the direction of opening, window positions and also show where services such as water, waste pipes and electrical points are situated.

Try to be as accurate as possible when taking measurements, care at this point will save time later.

Get advice from a kitchen designer, these could be independent or in store, but could prove invaluable as they understand unit sizings and functions.

If you are on a tight budget consider using stock cabinets, mass produced in standard sizes, these will save you money allowing you to spend more elsewhere in the kitchen, such as on accessories or on white goods.

Think about the finishes that you want for your kitchen, in a smaller room, dark overpowering wood finishes make the room appear smaller, consider lighter finishes such as maple or cherry wood, or a light laminate finish.

Worktops cover a significant area in any kitchen and so have a great effect on the overall look of a kitchen. There is a wide range of material available for worktops, granite and marble are luxurious but expensive, laminate worktops are a practical and cheaper option, consider the pros and cons of each material in terms of finish, practicality and of course cost.

A successful kitchen design is reliant on three core items, cabinets, appliances and worktops, you need to balance the quality, look and cost of each of these to create your ideal kitchen. If you are going to use a professional kitchen designer / installation service, ask for references from previous customers, do they have photographs of previous installations, what level of guarantees or warranty do they provide?
