Do you have some spare time in Lockdown and are thinking about making changes to your existing kitchen. Perhaps the space doesn’t work properly for you, you’ve outgrown it or you’d like to expand. As experienced London plumbers we recommend looking at your pipework and deciding whether it’s worth saving it or starting again. Your main consideration will need to be whether the existing arrangement of the pipes is going to get in the way of your planned layout for the new kitchen – it’s likely that your pipework will need to be re-routed.
So where do you start:
- Every kitchen needs a cooker, fridge freezer and sink. Start with these items, and add other features around them.
- Look at what you already have — are there any interesting architectural details that could be incorporated into your new design, such as old beams or alcoves?
- Adequate kitchen storage space is a must. Base your storage needs on the size of your household, how much kitchen equipment you own, and how and where to store your food
You will also need to take into account what activities will take place here other than cooking:
- Will you be using your kitchen only as a room in which to store, prepare and cook food, or would you like it to double up as a room in which you can sit and eat too?
- Will this also be an entertaining space?
- Would you be satisfied with a breakfast bar or island unit with stools, or would a full-size table for family gatherings be better?
Next, assess the dimensions of the room and then make a wish-list — in order of priority.
