The kitchen is the most complicated room in the home to design. No other room has so many demands made of it. If ever the kitchen could be described as the heart of the home, that time is now.

Living kitchens

Growing in popularity for the last decade, the ‘living kitchen’ is the ultimate style choice of many. Where it was once the cook’s domain only, now we cook, eat, play, work and relax in the kitchen. In addition, it has to have the kitchen ‘wow’ factor and be glamorous. There are so many requirements – practical, functional, social and aesthetic. This means there are also many decisions to be made; so many decisions, in fact, that often people are put off installing a new fitted kitchen at all.

If you have never bought a new kitchen before, you don’t know what you don’t know. You could make mistakes. Some mistakes don’t become apparent until the project is finished. At best, that might mean you have to live with a bad design. At worst, it can mean it costs you a fortune to put right. The prospect can be daunting.

Enter the specialist kitchen designer

A good specialist kitchen designer will take you by the hand and guide you step-by-step through the process. He or she will collaborate with you to help you create your kitchen ‘wow’ factor – a room tailor-designed to function exactly according to your specific needs. Your project will also be undertaken with care to suit your budget, and give you the optimum value for your money. The specialist kitchen designer will take away all of your concerns and ensure that the process of creating your dream kitchen is an absolute pleasure.

At least, that’s how it ought to be. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way.

Kitchen nightmares

You may well have heard ‘kitchen nightmare’ stories. If you haven’t, you will! The minute the word gets out that you are considering a new dream kitchen, you will hear the drums beating:
