The kitchen is without a doubt one of the most important rooms in the home. It’s where meals are eaten, chat is had over a cup of tea, and is of course, the only place to be at a party! That’s why, when you’re having a new kitchen designed and fitted it’s a good idea to spend a bit of time planning it out and thinking carefully about where everything should go, how you’re going to utilise the space available to you, and what are the most important features to focus on as far as you’re concerned. After all, everyone will have a different opinion, but the only one that really matters is the opinion of the head chef!
One of the best ways of visualising your kitchen before it actually gets built is by using an online kitchen planner
Companies like Magnet offer this service for free and it really helps you get an idea of what Magnet fitted kitchens
look like before you actually start building them. You see everything in 3D and from a totally blank canvas, by following a simple step by step guide you can create the kitchen you’ve always wanted.
It’s always a better idea to have the exact measurements of your kitchen before you get started as this will give you a more accurate representation of what your kitchen is going to look like, but if you only have rough measurements for now, it’s still ok to get going.
The great thing about an online kitchen planner is that if you don’t like the finished product or you think it could do with some tweaking, you can always change things around or start again from scratch. Keep going until you’re happy you’ve got everything just where you want it and the kitchen design is just right for you and your family.
Once you’ve come up with a design that you’re happy with you can then pop into the store and get an actual quote from one of the designers and also talk through any questions you might have. Your designer will also be able to tell you if the design you’ve come up with is practical and easy enough to build, making best use of the size and shape of your kitchen.
If you’ve been thinking about making some changes to your kitchen why not have some fun with an online kitchen planner and let your creative juices flow.
