New Build – How to design your perfect kitchen
Designing your new kitchen ideally would be done at the time you are designing your house build or extension, not afterwards. Once you have designed your space for the kitchen, you are more likely to have to compromise on your kitchen design.
A successful kitchen project requires 3 important elements –
-High quality materials and products
-Highly skilled project management and installers
Design of your kitchen would ideally involve a specialist kitchen designer who is skilled in listening to a client’s requirements and tailoring their design to suit the individual client’s needs. A specialist kitchen designer also has the advantage of both product and building knowledge. At this stage, it is important the client and designer discuss how the kitchen is to be used and incorporates all aspects of the client’s requirements into the final design.
At Cambridge Kitchens & Bathrooms, our designers use state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD) software in order to portray the final design and bring it to life for the client. Particularly in new build situations where there may not be any walls up yet, it gives the client a real feel as to how the kitchen will look and function.
Using the best quality materials and products you can afford is important, you don’t want to scrimp on probably the most important room in your home, it is where many people make mistakes and it will show in the long run. Our designers will help guide you through the products available and help you stay in your budget.
Scheduling your new kitchen installation is extremely important in a new build in particular to avoid unwanted expense down the line. A dedicated project manager can help liase with your builder to ensure all the services required to bring your kitchen to life happen at the right time. Running in electrical supplies and plumbing needs to be done before plastering so making sure your kitchen design is communicated to your builder is vital. Under floor heating and radiators also need to be considered before the kitchen is installed. We ensure here at Cambridge Kitchens & Bathrooms when we work on new builds, that our project manager provides the builder with plumbing and wiring diagrams to ensure the kitchen can be installed as easily as possible.
Plan, Plan, Plan is the main point here to achieve the kitchen of your dreams, it is also the most cost effective way of achieving exactly what you want!
