Planning A Kitchen

Written by

The kitchen is the number one improvement that prospective buyers look for, so designing a perfect one is a must.

Get The Layout Right

Start by assessing your own space, measuring up and making an accurate floor plan. The type of kitchen layout you choose will depend on the amount of space you have, but consider the following before you visit a kitchen planner.

Could You Change The Current Layout?

If you're ripping out existing units, you don't have to stick to the previous layout, although if it's a small space you may be stuck with making the most of what you've got.

Where Should You Start?

  • Note the position of existing power points, pipes in and out, windows and doors.
  • Using the same measurements, make a rough sketch of how you would like the appliances, worktops and doors to be, noting any changes in services that may be necessary.
  • Bear in mind that changing the location of services or structural features will add to the overall cost.
  • Play around with different combinations, until you have a design you're happy with that you can present to a kitchen planner.

What Practicalities Do You Need To Consider?

As you go, think of a kitchen's functions and work these into zones in your plan. Food preparation, cooking, serving and washing-up afterwards are the four main jobs all kitchens need to fulfil. Make sure each zone has sufficient worktop space, storage for its associated stuff and all the necessary appliances to hand.

Designers also put great stock in the 'work triangle', which dictates the sink, cooker and fridge should form the corners of a triangle in relation to each other. Sinks traditionally live under the window because access to the plumbing is easier and having a wall cupboard above the sink results in banged heads - although it is possible to incorporate draining racks above it.
