Creating your Dream Kitchen

Creating your Dream Kitchen

Designing your new kitchen can be an exciting but daunting task. Many people have an idea in mind for their kitchen and do plenty of research, but still aren’t completely in love with the finished product. Here are some tips to avoid disappointment and get your dream kitchen!

Your first task is to sit down and write a list of your expectations of both the contractor building the kitchen, and the kitchen design it self. Disappointment occurs when expectations aren’t met, so by writing a list you are making your expectations clear to yourself and anyone else involved in the kitchen, so they can be better met.

The next thing you have to do is understand your style. It is so easy to research photo galleries of kitchens on the Internet. Compile a scrapbook either an electronic or printed version, and narrow down the choices to your favourites. You could even categorise them so when you show the contractor you can say ‘I like the layout of these kitchens, but I like the cabinet style of these kitchens’.

Remember, it’s okay to push the boundaries, dare to be different! If you want something that’s a bit bold go for it. At Harrington Kitchens we have designers who can work with you and give you assistance and guidance for a wide range of styles, which is especially helpful if you are undecided on something!

Make sure you select durable materials for your kitchen that need little maintenance; you want this kitchen to last. You also don’t want to spend all your time polishing and cleaning your kitchen, you want to enjoy it.

Another factor to consider when designing your kitchen are your storage options. There are so many great features that you can get, which save space and look great. One of our newest systems is the Blum Aventos lift up cabinet door system. This is a great system to save space in the kitchen and is an easy to use alternative to traditional opening cabinet doors.

One of the last things you have to think of is your appliances. Appliances can be costly and take up a fair chunk of your budget but you have to remember that they are going to be used everyday, and you’re better off spending a bit more to get quality products that will last. This is also something that you will be able to ask your contractor or kitchen designer for suggestions.

That is why Harrington Kitchens is the kitchen manufacturer to call when you want a quality kitchen with superior workmanship. With Harrington Kitchens, you can be confident that the kitchen of your dreams will be delivered.
