Beautiful Fitted Kitchens In Durham Created Especially For You
When it comes to fitted kitchens they are often the centrepiece in most homes, a place to cook, eat and in many cases entertain.
Colour, style and layout are all equally important when choosing a kitchen, as well as the functionality. A new kitchen is an investment, therefore you want to make sure it will stand the test of time.
Styles of Fitted Kitchens
Modern kitchens – these are normally quite simple and sleek with frameless plain cabinets, stainless steel appliances, stylish worktops, glass splashbacks in ranges from matt to shiny.
Traditional kitchens – are a lot more defined cabinets, with thick in-cut grooves or raised lines, decorative mouldings, decorative wall tiles and often Belfast sinks. Traditional style kitchens can, however, offer the best of both worlds, combining features to suit a range of styles. Combining traditional framed painted cabinets together with the likes of Granite, Corian or wood work surfaces can offer more of a Country feel.
Choosing the layout of your kitchen
When it comes to the layout of your kitchen this will dictate to some extent your style. For example, if you have a bright large south-facing kitchen then you may want to opt for more of a matt finish, helping to eliminate shiny reflections on your cabinets. Bringing light into a smaller galley kitchen you may want to choose something more pale and reflective.
Kitchen Islands work great in large spaces, but not in smaller kitchens, in these cases streamlined is often best.
Lighting in your kitchen can make all the difference to the overall look. Opting for white or sparkly worksurfaces in laminates or stone can also help make your room seem larger.
A few things to think about when choosing your fitted kitchen
Lifestyle questions to consider.
Do you have children or grandchildren often visiting? High gloss kitchens and shiny surfaces could mean, sticky fingers and finger marks, in turn leading to more cleaning.
Love cooking? If you do a lot of cooking then you need to consider your worktop space. Chopping and preparation often require quite a bit of space, therefore consider a central island (space permitting) or perhaps a butcher’s block?
Is space a premium? Do you require a lot of cupboard space for all your pots and pans etc? Looking at ways of making the most of your space, cupboards on tops and bottom. If there is a kitchen island perhaps consider an option of storage cupboards built in.
