Measure Twice & Measure Properly
Measuring the space in your kitchen is the important first step. A millimetre here and a centimetre there can change a slick design to an aesthetic nightmare. Before you start looking at cupboards, worktops and flooring options you need to know the size and dimensions of the space you are working with.
Having your kitchen professionally designed means you will get precise plans that account for things like mains supplies or structural features that need to be considered. A well-measured design means you will also save money on unnecessary materials and reduce the likelihood of any avoidable modifications down the line.

For example, using a specific material can make your kitchen safer for children. You may also consider features that will be useful as you grow older that you hadn’t thought about because they are not relevant to your current lifestyle.
Professional designers really can help you find value in appliances as well as help you find things for the best price. Often the savings in materials and appliances will more than pay for the time of a design consultation.
