More Kitchen Design Ideas And Cheap Ways To Revamp The Kitchen

Thursday, December 15th 2016 10:18pm

Hello and welcome to another blog post here at PFS Kitchens, the kitchen and bedroom designers par excellence even though we do say so ourselves. We hope you are looking forward to the festive period and the New Year, and today we have some tips on kitchen design and ways you can revamp your kitchen on the cheap.

These tips have been taken from the Which website as we thought they were well worth sharing and we will give you a link to the whole article below. But first here is what they say regarding Kitchen Design Ideas:
  • What elements do you want to be close to together, such as the fridge and cooking station, so you don't have to make too many trips around the kitchen?
  • Where will you want most worktop space? Next to the hob and oven?
  • How much storage do you need? Think about whether you need more than you currently have and what you need to store.
  • Do you use your kitchen for dinner parties or do you have kids to accommodate? Do you therefore need space for a table or for someone to sit to talk to you while you cook?
  • Where do you want to keep the utensils and dinnerware that you use most?
  • Do you have a lot of gadgets, and will you want these out, so you can use them quickly, or stored away?
  • What appliances do you want, and will there be room for them? For example, you may want an American-style fridge freezer instead of a slimmer fridge.
Thinking about how you use your current kitchen, and how you want to use the new one, will help ensure that your day-to-day needs aren't overlooked in the planning process. You then need to look at the constraints in your kitchen, such as size and the positions of doors, windows and sockets

And here they give you some Cheap Kitchen Ideas:
  • Paint - refreshing your walls or kitchen doors with a lick of paint is much cheaper than replacing the whole kitchen, and a great way to add colour. You can do this yourself, although make sure you use oil-based or latex (water-based) paint and prepare the surfaces as instructed for the type of surface. Alternatively visit Which? Trusted Trader for a recommended tradesperson to do the job for you.
  • Create a feature wall - this is an ideal way to add character to your kitchen and make a statement. Use colourful or patterned wallpaper (specially designed for kitchens), tiles, or a distinctive splashback to create a focal point.
  • Update worktops and doors - some builders merchants, local kitchen manufacturers and specialist companies can supply new kitchen unit doors, drawer fronts and worktops, enabling you to refresh your kitchen at a fraction of the price of an entirely new one.
