Upgrading your kitchen can be exciting as well as overwhelming, we at Robert Pallant Designs know this and want to make you feel as prepared and ready for your consultation as possible. Follow our guidelines below as to what we suggest you know when you come to a consultation with us!
1. Style and Colour of your Kitchen Design
It is important to know a rough idea of what you would like your new kitchen to look like, coming with a colour scheme will help us to create a more unique and personal design idea for you. We do suggest you avoid trend colours, as a timeless kitchen colour and design will last longer and add more value to your home. Although a pop of colour can look very modern and lovely in your home, it is your personal choice.
2. Functionality of your Kitchen Design
We see the kitchen as being the heart of your home, it is where much of your time is spent, preparing food, dining with friends or that simple coffee first thing in the morning. This is why we take into consideration what you do in your kitchen, are you planning to cook every night? Baking on the weekend? Entertaining guests? Once we know how and what you use your kitchen for, we can create a design that is personalised for your needs, whether it means including speciality appliances, building an island for more countertop space or adding a second wall oven for large dinner parties!
3. Your Homes Design
We want to know how your new kitchen will fit in with the rest of your home. Would you like it to be a stand-alone bold statement, or flow with the rest of the design of your home? After all, we wouldn’t see an old outdated kitchen in a very modern high spec house, but again, it is your personal choice and it would be an idea to know what you would like it to look like within your home.
4. Materials used in your Kitchen Design
From your backsplashes to your worktops, discussing what materials you would like to use is vital to creating the perfect kitchen. Whilst you may have an idea of what material you may like, it is key to discuss this with us as we may be able to offer a similar but better material for functionality, style and durability, as we have the experience and knowledge to guide you in the right direction, whilst keeping in with your own design preferences.
5. Budget of your Kitchen Design
Having a budget is a great thing to bring to a consultation, as it gives us an idea of what kind of materials and scope we can use better optimise your spend. It is better to be honest with us as we can help guide you and give a fair estimate for your project!
