Planning Out Your New Kitchen: Where To Start?

Here are some important points to consider if you’re thinking of getting a new kitchen

Planning your dream kitchen can be a lot of fun but there are factors which you’ll need to consider.

Sometimes if we’re thinking about something for a long time, we start to lose direction and forget about the bigger picture. If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone. At Timbercraft, we’re here to help! Let’s take a look at some fundamental things you should consider when planning for a new kitchen.

Maximise the space for your needs

It’s important to think about how you’re going to use the space you have to work within your lifestyle. Whether you have a smaller space, a large space, or maybe something in between, you need to think about how to use its potential and get the most of the kitchen. If you have a lot of kids maybe you need to maximise storage, and have a bigger dining space for an island or breakfast bar in your kitchen.

Kitchen Style

The next thing for you to decide, is the style you want for the kitchen. You could go for a modern clean style with high gloss surfaces, a cottage natural style with a cream wood finish, or you could combine them and have a modern classic feel. When considering the style for your kitchen, you should think about what you want to be a key feature of the space; whether it’s the wood finish, a strong colour or the high gloss countertops.


Carefully plan where every appliance is going to go, as they can otherwise end up driving you mad! Consider the fridge, for example, and whether a passer-by in the kitchen has to disturb you to reach it while you are in the middle of cooking. Think ‘convenience for everyone’. Also, don’t forget the about the height of the appliances like microwaves, if you want the room to be child-friendly.
