Practically everything came from one supplier – the timber, plasterboard and nails and insulation for the new stud wall, the sink and taps, worktops, I’ve a great tip for them, cupboards, flooring, and the insulation that went under it, doors and glass bricks. Even the kitchen appliances, the heat alarm, the paint on the walls, everything.
My focus and design intent for this kitchen was a space for me and my partner to sit on comfy bar stools, chat, sip whatever we choose, watch something on YouTube or Netflix’s and keep an eye on the cooking. A fitted kitchen design success.
And my point for sharing this story with you – is to show you that planning can take almost any form, as long as it helps to organise a desired outcome. Just remember, that it doesn’t have to happen all at once, at one sitting. You can make an outline plan and go back to it as many times as you want, you can even use your partner as a stand in for the fridge. And the kitchen design is something to suit your lifestyle and not necessary the “Blueprint”.
