5 Steps to Design Your Dream Kitchen

Maybe you’re giving your kitchen a much-needed makeover, or perhaps your house is newly built and needs some interior design work to make it feel like home. Either way, you have the perfect opportunity to design your dream kitchen. But where do you start?

If you’re not sure where to begin, R H Cabinetmakers are here to help. We’ve put together this guide to designing your dream kitchen in five easy steps. 

1) Think about how your kitchen is used

Your kitchen design is likely to be influenced by what you use it for. For example, if you do a lot of cooking, you’ll need lots of storage space for cookware, crockery and various kitchen utensils. In this case, you should consider having custom kitchen cabinets installed. 

2) Decide on a style

There are a range of different styles you could go for. Some people prefer minimalist designs, while others opt for a colourful, vibrant look. Your kitchen’s style encompasses everything from the cabinets and countertops to the floor and lighting, so it’s worth doing some research to find out what you like. 

3) Choose a layout that works for you

Different layouts work best in different kitchens. For example, if your kitchen has long walls but the width is narrow, you might consider a one-wall kitchen, which means the cabinets, sink, oven and countertops are all on one side, freeing up some space. On the other hand, an island kitchen might be ideal for a larger room, as the island provides a focal point and creates a balanced feel. 

4) Start thinking about kitchen appliances 

If you’ve decided on a particular style, now is the time to find kitchen appliances to match! Having appliances that match the kitchen’s design really helps to tie the image together. 

5) Remember you will need furniture

Even after your new kitchen has been installed, it won’t be complete until it includes furniture. For example, stools to go around a kitchen island, or a table and chairs in a style that complements the overall design. You should also think about curtains or blinds, and how they can enhance the room’s appearance.
