When considering a new kitchen renovation, it can be easy to get caught up in modern technology with all these new spangled creations, intricate kitchen designs and beautiful storage solutions, but if it doesn’t work for your lifestyle then what good is it? It is important that, when you are looking at a kitchen renovation, you need to have your end goal in mind. You need to be aware of what you like and what you use your kitchen for, otherwise you are going to end up with a beautiful kitchen that is practically useless because it is not built to purpose.
This is where a bespoke kitchen designer can really help the process. With extensive experience in assisting people just like you choose a kitchen, fit their kitchen to the space they have, mix and match with styles and choose their ideal flooring and worktop material, a kitchen designer can provide inspiration and ideas that you might have never thought of.
So why not give it a go? We’ve listed four great reasons that a kitchen designer is ideal for helping you choose the perfect bespoke kitchen for your new home renovation.
1. An Insightful Second Opinion
In some cases, when the only opinion you have to go on is your own, you can’t see the forest for the trees. Only when a second person chimes in to agree or disagree or point out a slight discrepancy, do you see it from an alternate angle. And alternate angles are crucial when designing a room, even if it is a room solely for your use.
A Kitchen designer will be able to help you realise your vision, but will also be able to steer you clear of common pitfalls with experience and knowledge of the craft. Helpful advice if you want my opinion!
2. Expert Advice on Storage Solutions
When you’re stuck looking for a way to shoehorn a fridge freezer and adequate cupboard space into your tiny flat, an experienced kitchen designer will be able to come up with ways in which it might work. They have experience in making things fit and can provide solutions tailored to meet your needs. They can also provide alternative solutions to storage issues; such as a smaller brand of fridge-freezer that will work just as well.
3. Good Knowledge of the latest Styles
If you’re not one for the latest styles, or you’re not quite sure which designs look good together, a designer is essential. They will be able to provide helpful insight as to what melds well together, what you can use to good effect, what themes work well in a kitchen; anything. They can even provide assistance on making your kitchen appear larger or lighter, depending on the type of atmosphere you want to give off in your kitchen.
4. Knows What works and What Doesn’t
Of course you may butt heads from time to time, but essentially a kitchen designer has a working knowledge of design, bespoke kitchen styles, the latest materials and techniques and what works and what doesn’t. You might have a certain idea in your head that just won’t work when you transfer it to your home, or you are trying to fit too many features into too small a space. Learn to take advice from the designer when talking about impossible or illogical tasks as they will probably be right most of the time.
While a professional kitchen designer will be able to provide essential information and advice on what looks best in a kitchen and what will work well in the space you have provided, at the end of the day it is ultimately up to you when choosing your new kitchen design. Because, really the designer doesn’t have to live with the consequences of the new kitchen; you do. So if it is not right for you then you will spend years regretting it. Take professional advice and consider their suggestions but you are the one who has to be happy with the end result, and that is what matters.
