Design your dream kitchen in five easy steps

Design your dream kitchen in five easy steps

Deciding on the right kitchen to suit the needs of you and your family can be tricky. You’ve got to consider your budget, practicalities, colour schemes and your family needs – and that’s just the start! With so many things to consider, we’re exploring how to identify what your specific needs and wants are to create that dream designer kitchen.

Step 1: Work out your budget

The first step in designing your dream kitchen is to work out what you can afford. There’s no point falling in love with certain materials and appliances if they fall completely out of your price range. At Kitchen Design Centre we have a huge range of options, meaning we can design kitchens for most budgets. We also have plenty of offers and appliance sales, which you can keep an eye out for in our monthly e-shots.

Step 2: Understand the use of your kitchen and what you need most

One of the most important aspects to think about it is how you and your family intend to use your kitchen and the space you have to play with.

Ask yourself:

  • How much dining space you need and what style you like – is it a traditional table, small breakfast bar, or modern bench or booth design?
  • Are you a keen cook? If so, preparation space will be a priority, along with storage space for food and utensils.
  • Are you tech savvy? If gadgets are your thing, you’ll need to keep this in mind when deciding how and where to spend your budget.
  • Is a family-friendly, warm design more important, or do you want something minimalist, just for grown-ups?
  • Do you want your kitchen to be more than just a place to cook? A sociable kitchen is becoming more and more popular with spaces for entertaining and play areas for the kids.
  • How much of your personality do you want to show in the design?

Step 3: Research the relevant designs

Now you’ve got a good idea of what you want and need from a kitchen, start taking a look at designs you like. It’s always useful to have something to show us before coming to your initial consultation. Research can be done by using all sorts of materials – from browsing lifestyle magazines or Houzz to making mood boards on Pinterest. You could also take a look at our some of our latest customer kitchens for more inspiration and ideas.

Step 4: Ask for advice

Designing a kitchen is hard – so we don’t expect you to do all the hard work alone. Book in for a design consultation at Kitchen Design Centre to chat through your ideas. We’ll be able to advise on what we think is best for your home and take you through a variety of options.

Finish off the design with the right appliances 

A new kitchen isn’t complete without appliances. As these can be the most costly part of any kitchen, it’s a good idea to think about this when setting your budget. Come and look at some of the appliances by Neff, at Kitchen Design Centre, and select the best ones to suit your needs and your budget.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
