When designing your kitchen there is quite a lot to consider, afterall, this is one of the most utilised spaces in your home from both a functional and living space perspective.  The Kitchen really is the heart of the home, its where you cook, entertain and often enjoy spending time with Family and Friends.  So when it comes to designing your kitchen, longevity of design and practicality of layout are key.

Interior Designers work with a client to assess how the kitchen is utilised, what appliances are required and provide concepts of what the best layout would be.  From a style point of view, you must consider whether you would like a timeless, traditional, country, beachy or contemporary look – or perhaps you would like to blend all of these.
