You’ll also need to finalise your budget at this stage to make sure you’re not looking at options out of your price range. Remember that just because you can’t afford high-end design choices like marble work surfaces, it doesn’t mean you can’t get the look with a cheaper alternative, such as a quality laminate. The huge range of kitchens on the market means, if you are willing to shop around, you can get a kitchen you love at a price you can afford.
Another advantage of an open plan kitchen is that it provides large spaces for entertaining. If you are preparing food you can still be included in the social activities. Friends can be sitting comfortably having a coffee while you are preparing nibbles and yet still part of the conversation.
Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
You’ll have to live with the design for years, so it’s worth spending time getting it right. Use homes magazines, architectural websites, kitchen company catalogues, design books and Pinterest to pull together a mood board of what you like. Allow yourself a few months to do this and you’ll soon see key themes emerging.
