According to recent research, buying a new kitchen is something that most of us do only once in a decade. It’s true that a new kitchen is a considered purchase and so it stands to reason that consumers want the best they can get for their available budget.
In days gone by, buying a new kitchen amounted to a visit to the nearest DIY store or kitchen outlet to pick out a countertop and some cabinets. Modern kitchen designers, however, take a more sophisticated approach!
What to expect
Regardless of which company you decide to buy from, modern kitchen designers will almost universally want to visit your home. There are several reasons for this:
– The designer will wish to take accurate measurements of the space available and plot the location of pipes and connections for major appliances. This can help avoid unnecessary delays when the time comes to actually fit the kitchen.
– It is helpful to the designer to see your home in order to best advise you on specific designs to complement your own style.
– A great designer will normally let you see a mock-up of the design you choose on a laptop to help you visualise what the finished result will look like; it’s much easier to do this from the location of the kitchen.
– The kitchen company will often be in a position to offer you finance on your new kitchen to enable you to spread the cost over an agreed period. It’s much better to discuss this in the privacy of your own home.
What can Modern Kitchen Designers offer?
Modern kitchen designers can take a lot of the stress out of buying a new kitchen by dealing will all aspects of the design on your behalf. This means that rather than dealing with a range of tradesmen (joiners, plumbers, tilers and electricians) and trying to co-ordinate suitable working arrangements for all of them, you can leave the kitchen designer to make these arrangements.
Modern kitchen designers can also offer you a range of integrated appliances for your new kitchen so there’s no need to shop separately for these. The added bonus of arranging your new appliances through the designer is that you don’t have to worry about whether the items you’ve chosen will fit into the new design.
Many modern kitchen designers will also deal with the other aspects of redecorating your new kitchen; again, leaving one less thing for you to organize! You may wish a change of color scheme requiring certain areas to be repainted or perhaps some new tiling or flooring as part of your new design.
You might also wish to incorporate some contemporary lighting to enhance your new kitchen. You’ll find that many modern kitchen designers will be happy to deal with these aspects as part of their service.
