How to choose your kitchen?

The kitchen is a room in which we spend a lot of time. You prepare food, you can also sit at the table, you wash the dishes, you have your coffee… It is therefore essential that it be chosen with care for its functional use, but also for its pleasant appearance. Several elements must be taken into account when choosing a kitchen to obtain the room of your dreams.

The basics to consider when choosing a kitchen

Depending on your budget, you can choose between a kit kitchen, a ready-to-install kitchen or a built-in kitchen. The first solution is the most economical, but requires some work. You will have to become a master builder and spend long hours designing and installing everything. The second option is to buy a kitchen that is already designed, but which you install yourself. This is an interesting compromise for those who don’t want to pay too much without having to design a well-made room by themselves. Finally, the turnkey kitchen is designed by a kitchen designer according to your wishes. The installation of your kitchen is handled by this professional. This is the assurance of having a perfect kitchen, even if it is more expensive.

Chic kitchen

Choosing your chic kitchen

What better way to create a modern and chic kitchen than with the help of a renowned kitchen designer.

But, whatever your preference, you must first study the space in which your kitchen will be installed. Check where the various outlets (water, gas) are located to install your dishwasher or hob, where the sockets and switches are to place the fridge in the best possible position, the corners… Draw up a precise plan of the room. This will make it easier to integrate the different furniture and appliances. It is also very important to list what you do in the kitchen. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing good food. A large work surface is needed. Do you only go into the kitchen to operate the microwave? A small shelf will suffice!

Finally, be prepared. The kitchen must also be particularly functional. Storage space is a must. You need to be able to store all the products you use on a daily basis.

Choosing the right kitchen units

The first step is to select furniture that fits perfectly into your space. If you don’t use your kitchen much, there’s no need to invest a lot of money (chipboard furniture is fine). This is not the case for passionate cooks, who require resistant furniture (solid wood and quality).

The layout is an essential point in choosing these elements. If you have a large space, it will be easier than with a small room.

But in any case, it is important to focus on one particular area: the activity triangle that links three areas: the cooking area, the washing area and the storage area. You can then choose your furniture to optimise this area.

Appliances are also a central point in the choice of a kitchen. Depending on your needs and the space available, you will have to adapt this equipment as best as possible. There are now many models dedicated to small spaces, for example.

Choose your kitchen according to your needs

First of all, it is important to make a choice according to your needs, as we have already noted. Many storage units are indispensable for experienced cooks. These should be easy to access and open very simply. Start your design with the elements that will make up the famous activity triangle and then broaden your vision. Are there any missing pieces of equipment? If so, which ones?

Drawer cabinets are very practical for storing different accessories and cutlery. Cupboards (low or high) are suitable for boxes, pans, dishes… If you are unsure, you should know that kitchen designers recommend low cabinets with drawers, which are much easier to use (everything is properly stored, unlike what often happens with a large cupboard). It is also an excellent choice if you have to place the unit in a corner and against a wall. This way you can easily open the drawer, which with a door can be more difficult.

Helping you choose your kitchen

Designing a beautiful kitchen is not only about the layout, but also about the style. You are completely free to choose the colours that suit you, but avoid overloading your room with discordant colours. The effect will be unpleasant to the eye and you will not feel comfortable. Light colours are very trendy at the moment and visually enlarge the space. If you like the industrial style, you can for example choose very refined greys that go well with aluminium appliances.

Design is also important when choosing a kitchen. If you have a large budget, you can opt for marble, concrete or wood elements. The style will also depend on the details. The choice of the credenza is important. Cement tiles are very modern and will bring a very modern touch to your kitchen, for example.

You can also play with the accessories. Wicker hanging baskets can complete the decoration of your room with style.

Two other points can also be integrated into the design of your space, namely the fronts of the furniture and the central island.

The first is very important, as it will determine the overall visual effect. It is best to opt for quality fronts. This way, you will not be confronted with a surface that comes unstuck (which gives a very bad image). Melamine is a very good choice. It imitates various surfaces (stone, wood, etc.) very well and is resistant.

You can also play on the effect by opting for a matt (very contemporary) or lacquered finish. The central island remains one of the elements that makes people dream. It is true that it offers elegance and practicality. You can store many things on it, use it as a work surface, integrate your cooking plate or sink. It is often mistakenly thought that it is reserved for large spaces. However, it is now possible to place an island in smaller kitchens thanks to specific models and add value to your home.

Designing your future kitchen made easy

If you prefer not to waste time, it can be very useful to entrust your project to an experienced kitchen designer. This is one of the easiest ways to find out how best to choose your kitchen. You will be able to obtain a great deal of advice on the ideal layout, the furniture to choose, the appliances you need, the perfect colours and the right combinations. This professional studies the layout of your room and allows you to design a kitchen that meets all your requirements, in accordance with your project for a high-end fitted kitchen.
