Step 4: Finer details
As you become clear on the demands you will be placing on your new kitchen make a wish-list of your preferred products and materials. From a practical perspective consider what you will require from your appliances, worksurfaces, storage solutions and sink & tap. You may already have a look in mind for the kitchen in terms of the styles, colours and finishes, but it’s a great idea to gather ideas from magazines or websites. Enjoy creating a scrap-book with cuttings of furniture, flooring, taps, even paint swatches, soft furnishings, crockery or vases – anything that inspires you. Even just images with the right ‘feel’.
