Brief, Sketch, Detail
Once you've decided on how your kitchen will be renovated, there are generally three main stages to follow before undertaking the kitchen design and development work:
1. The brief
Before undertaking a renovation, you need to decide what changes you require. It's helpful to think about how much time you spend in the kitchen, what you like and dislike about your current kitchen and if you'd like your kitchen to be used for multiple purposes (such as informal dining). A designer will be able to assist you in your decision; otherwise, you can work through our questionnaire to help determine your needs.
2. Sketching the kitchen.
Before proceeding, it's important to sketch the elements on paper to ensure your kitchen will work in the space. The sketch should be scaled accurately (including appliances, cupboards and benches), and the kitchen measured several times to ensure perfect scale.
3. The detail.
Choosing a colour scheme, the types of materials to cover the benchtops, cupboards and floor, deciding on a style of sink and choosing appliances can often be the hardest decisions to make.
Once you've worked through these three steps, you should have a clearer idea of how your new kitchen will look and operate. Don't move any further in the renovation process unless you are totally satisfied that your new kitchen will fulfil your needs. Changing your mind midway through a renovation is a costly exercise.
