Here at Sheffield Kitchens and Flooring Ltd, we’re always happy to help families and homeowners find that ideal new look for their kitchen suites – however, there are always a few things you should be bearing in mind before we start working with you – and while we’ll be with you every step of the way, there are a few things you’re going to need to consider beforehand!
Think About Functionality
It’s tempting to leap straight into a great-looking kitchen design, but you’re going to need to keep things as practical as possible – we’ll help you find a functional look that’s both spectacular to look at and a breeze to make use of on a daily basis.
Consider Overhead Lighting
Lighting is incredibly important in kitchen spaces – and in our opinion, you should be focusing on having spotlights or similar options installed overhead – focusing on where you will be working – as opposed to behind you. Sheffield Kitchens and Flooring will be able to find the most effective and attractive lighting options for you.
Don’t Overlook Storage
Storage is essential – what use is a kitchen design without all those necessary cupboards and shelves? Make full use of your kitchen design – we’ll find a way to help you store and retrieve all your most important items and utensils in every corner of your new suite. Call us to find out more!
Get Switched On
It’s all too easy to forget about power supply! Finding room for power sources is easier than you think, but you’ll need to plan ahead for effective, practical use. Measure up those appliances and consider where you’ll need sockets and switches – we’ll help you!
Go For New Stock
We aim to create kitchen suites from scratch, even if we’re renovating an existing room – and in our opinion, you should never hold onto older appliances if you feel you’re saving money by doing so. You really won’t be doing – and keeping your old units installed in a fresh kitchen probably won’t look too hot! Let us help you find new appliances and units to blend perfectly with your new look.
Be Certain on Surfaces
Going for low-maintenance, scratch-resistant surface options is going to be the best route to take if you are aiming for a great-looking, functional kitchen for longer. Take it from us!
Functional Means Safe
You shouldn’t ever be skimping on safety measure for the sake of design – consider making routes through your kitchen as clear as possible – make visibility to outdoor areas a priority, too. During the design process, we’ll look at all safety and security measures that best fit your ideal look.
No kitchen should be without handy waste and recycling bins – and when it comes to a completely new kitchen design, you may want to consider hiding effective storage and disposal options away. We’ll help you with this, too!
As flooring experts as well as kitchen design and installation specialists, we know which floor options are likely to be the least maintenance and the safest for each and every one of our customers. We’ll help you find a great-looking option that’s easy to care for and a joy to walk across.
A kitchen without ventilation is one which is going to be difficult to breathe in – focus on cooker hoods with ventilation, external vents and quiet running to really optimise for clean, breathable kitchen air. We’ll show you how.
