If you are considering changing your kitchen and getting a kitchen refurb, then you need to make sure that you plan ahead and consider all of the aspects of refurbishing your kitchen, and what you hope to achieve from it when it is done.
Before you go off and start planning, here are the big questions that you need to ask yourself…
How will I get the Best use from the Kitchen?
Think about how you will use the kitchen – for example, if it is a kitchen diner, you will need to make sure that there is a good amount of space to eat for everyone in the household. You might want to consider adding a breakfast bar or moving appliances around to make life a little easier for you. Consider the practical aspects of the kitchen first of all.
What is my Daily Lifestyle Like?
Think about your daily lifestyle and what a kitchen needs to do for you. For example, if you have a big family, you might want to make sure that you have appliances that can cater to the larger amounts of washing and cooking. If you have guests over regularly then you will want a sufficient dining space, and with young kids and pets something easy to clean and maintain is important.
Are there any Must Haves?
Consider what you really must have in the kitchen first of all and then go from there. Prioritise the things you definitely want and also list things that you would like if space and budget allow it.
