Kitchen remodelling projects with the aid of professional remodelling designers

Designing a new kitchen can seem overwhelming. Even if you’ve lived in a house for years and think you know exactly what you want from a kitchen renovation, getting all the elements to gel can be an arduous task. If you’re struggling, hiring a professional kitchen remodelling expert or an interior designer can be a very worthwhile investment.

Do I need a kitchen remodelling designer?

It’s entirely possible to plan out a kitchen yourself, particularly if you want minimal changes to the layout. For example, we often work with people to choose and fit replacement kitchen worktops without changing the cabinet bodies. In many cases, new worktops, new doors and a coat of paint can totally transform your kitchen. However, if you’re considering having major work done, such as completely altering the layout, perhaps extending the kitchen or knocking through into another room, then it’s worth consulting an expert. As an example, they should be able to help you spot places to cut costs, such as minimizing extra plumbing.

Are kitchen store design services worth it?

Some kitchen ordering services include design in their package. However, the staff offering these services are rarely trained designers and may not have been in their role for long. They are typically trained to use a particular software package to create a sketch of your new kitchen and may have a script to help you decide which kitchen to get. If you know what you want, this may be enough. Another downside is that they’ll be very keen to sell you their own products – if you want a replacement kitchen worktop and they don’t stock stone (or only stock stone) then you’ll be given a limited set of options. You may also find that the cost of the ‘free’ service is tacked on somewhere else, so you pay more for something you don’t need.

I’m not sure what I want – who can help?

For inspiration and expertise, an independent professional is the best choice. The British Institute of Interior Design (BIRD) has a designer search feature that helps you find an accredited interior designer in your area. Contact several designers and ask for examples of their previous work as well as quotes for working on your project – you’ll soon see if your ideas of what makes a beautiful, functional kitchen match.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers deal with anything inside a home or office after the essential services have been put in. Depending on the budget and project, they may design a look which is implemented by others or they may project manage the work, including sourcing individual items such as replacement kitchen worktops, until it’s all complete. Obviously, the more time you expect a designer to spend on your project the more you’ll pay. A consultation to discuss colour schemes, practical layouts and appliance choices can be very affordable.

A great idea if you have special needs

Interior designers often have expertise in particular areas and can help provide adaptations. For example, if you’re a wheelchair user, are preparing for old age or have children with special needs, you might benefit from consulting a specialist interior designer. Likewise, if your home has particular needs, such as being a listed building, a different interior designer may be an excellent investment to help you preserve the character and value of your home.

For the remodelling of modern homes and a change for much better conditions and comfort, people should preferably use specialist help by remodelling experts. Kitchen design may seem easy to accomplish, but in fact there is such a vast array of solutions, design elements, materials, appliances, furniture and kitchen worktops that only professionals can choose the appropriate items and design arrangements and determine how they would fit the specific kitchens and create a unison with the settings.
