Depending on your aspirations for your new kitchen, you will need to consider whether you are improving your existing space or if you are wanting to expand. If you are improving existing space you will want to think about which elements of the kitchen, if any you are wanting to keep. This can help you work out any additional requirements you have.
If you are thinking about a more open plan kitchen design you may require additional building works to knock down walls between a kitchen and dining room for example. Another option is to consider a kitchen in an entirely new extension or an orangery style conservatory.
It is important to also think about the kitchen elements in your current room that don’t work. Lack of storage or positioning of sinks and appliances can make your space impractical. It’s also a good time to have a good clear out and throw away anything you’ve not used for a while, this will again help you assess your needs for your new dream kitchen.
