Designing your first kitchen is both memorable as well as daunting. You probably want everything to be perfect so that you will have absolutely no regrets later on. If this is the case, you must ensure that you understand the basics of kitchen designing before you start work with your builder.
Evaluate your floor space and think about the fixtures and fittings that you do actually require. This includes the pantry cabinets, sinks, where you’ll place your dishwasher and stove, whether you wish to accommodate a small table for your meals, and so on. Once this is done, it is easier for you to communicate your ideas to your builder as you would know exactly what you need.
Think about the lighting you would want to install as well as the flooring. Whether you like marble floors and marble countertops, or wooden floors and granite countertops, you would need to consider your options right now. Lighting is also essential for any kitchen as you may need different types of lighting fixtures for different parts of the kitchen.
Ensure that you have enough space to arrange all the appliances that you require in your kitchen. You do not want to end up with your appliances all cluttered. Storage options are also as important.
