If you have decided to rip out your kitchen and start again then you will no doubt be very excited, and also a little daunted at the limitless choices on offer in the marketplace. It can be hard to decide where to start from so here are a few tips to help you out:
What do you want to spend? Very early on you need to decide on a budget for your project. This will determine all sorts of things from what kitchen units you buy to how much of the work you need to do yourself.
Do you need to redesign the space? Think about whether or not the previous layout worked for you – if not then can you tweak it yourself or do you need some expert help. There are online kitchen planner devices available and many suppliers will make suggestions too.
What style suits you best? Do you want a country classic look or an ultra sleek finish? Solid wood kitchen worktops or maybe go for granite? All these questions and more need addressing so do your research and make sure you are happy with your choices.
How much help will you need? Is it a case of your Father-in-Law popping over with his toolbox, or will you need a full team of professionals to bring your ideas to life? Think carefully before you take on too much.
What’s your timescale? If you are not in a hurry then this will allow you to take as much time as you need to decide on your purchases. If there is a pressing deadline then the first thing to do will be to secure the tradesmen you will need to get the job done.
