Things To Consider Before Visiting Your Kitchen Supplier

Mar 11, 2008
When thinking about installing a new kitchen in your home there is a vast array of factors worthy of consideration before you even contact the kitchen supplier. Depending upon the size of your kitchen, the budget at your disposal, what roles your kitchen needs to fulfil as well as the appliances you would like to install should all be at the top of your list.

Design is also a key element that can lead to your new kitchen being either logically laid out for ease of use or so badly designed that people will be constantly pushing past each other when cooking or washing up.

Thankfully your local kitchen supplier should have some form of design assistance or at least a contact that can help with the design of your kitchen. This is vital as a professional kitchen designer is worth their weight in gold. Not purely for the aesthetic value of your kitchen but also in terms of practicality and usability. The 'triangle' method is usually employed when designing a kitchen and any kitchen supplier should understand your concerns if the design does not match the triangle theory.

Put simply the triangle theory ensures that the three major appliances in a kitchen lie at the three points of a triangle. It is believed that this ensures ease of use and efficiency when cooking. The triangle however is different for everyone as people vary with the importance of the appliances they use, some will place more importance on an oven than a microwave and some will want a dishwasher at one of the points, it is all down to personal preference. It is worth however checking some general triangles at the supplier as one may suit you.

Of course when you visit a supplier the choice of materials can be head spinning, it all depends on what kind of look you are going for. Wooden worktops and cabinets make a country kitchen a possibility, with a vast choice of woods out there; creating a unique kitchen is easy. Other options include cheaper manufactured woods that are covered. Far more affordable than solid wooden fittings they can be covered in wipe clean surfacing or even veneer wood finishes. For the modern look it should be possible to obtain chrome and steel finishes that can make your kitchen look contemporary and industrial.

Another vital consideration is the appliances you may need when visiting a kitchen supplier. As an expensive component of all kitchens it is worth weighing up the benefits of all appliances in detail. The size of the appliances should also be a concern, whether you need a fridge or an oven that has the capacity to feed the five thousand is unlikely. Finding appliances that are proportional to your needs will reduce costs and create more space in your kitchen.

Also defining what appliances you need should be passed on to your supplier, you should ask yourself if you really do need that dishwasher if you mainly eat greasy food or whether you actually need a separate grill. These considerations can help make your new kitchen as useful and affordable as possible.

If you follow this advice there is no reason that your new kitchen will not be an unbridled success. Of course it is a great expense but as the hub of many households it is of crucial importance to get this room right for a harmonious family life. Remember no matter who is forking out for the kitchen it is the person who will be doing the most cooking who should have the largest input in its design, especially in the practical sense. Aesthetic pleasure should really be an afterthought, practicality and usability should be the main ethos when you head down to the supplier.
