TN MAC Poly 200Two key considerations for your brand-new kitchen are practicalities and design. These are totally individual and dependent on your requirements, whether it being accommodating for a busy family life or simply a place to entertain and socialise. Traditional or contemporary, you will have an idea of the colour and look you would like. Our showroom has a range of designs to help with ideas. The freedom of completely bespoke design allows all available space to be maximised, awkward corners and spaces will be utilised, and any unique ideas you have can be applied to the design.

The interiors of units and drawers are versatile and may incorporate different depth shelving, spinning racks for easy accessibility, drawer compartments, or pull out racks disguised as cupboards. Wine and spice racks can be integrated within the kitchen. Glass fronted cupboards may be chosen to display your favourite glasses, decanters or wedding gifts. You may also decide to incorporate extra display shelving for cookery books keeping them at hand for meal planning and entertaining. Lighting can be integrated into these cupboards and shelf units.

Practicalities in a kitchen are invariably fundamental and paramount when space is limited. Access and walk way between your cooker, sinkand fridge is essential. Generally known as ‘the triangle’ it will be the most utilised space whilst cooking. Convenient access to all three is necessary, whilst permitting space to adequately manoeuvre around the kitchen. We can reposition your gas and electric supplies as well as your plumbing to fit in with your kitchen design as required. These are of primary consideration when designing your kitchen. Lighting is essential in a kitchen to enable you to cook and enhance the relaxing atmosphere when eating. Often your sink is positioned below a window and it is advisable not to block the light with units or shelves. Additional lighting gives the room a spacious look.

Appliances may need to be integrated into the kitchen, often several if you do not have a separate utility room. Microwaves and dishwashers can certainly be disguised within the kitchen as units. Considering a growing family may also be necessary. Maximising the use of extra space with additional units or a dishwasher if you have got the space is definitely useful.

The dining areas in the kitchen should be considered, whether it is a table and chairs or a breakfast bar. Easy accessibility of this area is important. You may wish to position a flat screen television beside your dining area, or have speakers to listen to your favourite music. You may wish to extend you table if you have guests.

With the endless versatility that a bespoke fitted kitchen has to offer, it is the perfect complement to any home. Experienced kitchen designers can put all your ideas into place, alongside practical requirements, to create the perfect kitchen.
