Advice on Bespoke Kitchen Design

What Can Suit Your Preferences and Those of Future Buyers

Unless you are planning to spend the rest of your life in the home you are currently living in, you would be well advised to think of a kitchen design that is appealing not only to you  but also one that will be appealing to any potential future owner. The kitchen is one of the important rooms in a house and it is therefore well worth thinking quite hard about your bespoke kitchen design – remember, many people look at the kitchen first when buying a home, and will consider it a part of their overall costs if they think they’re going to have to renovate immediately upon moving in .

At Russell Blake, based in London and serving both London and the Home Counties, we will be delighted to use our wealth of experience to guide you through the bespoke kitchen design process – future saleability is just one strand of a complicated web that you’ll be wanting to take into account and an experienced helping hand can assist you in avoiding pitfalls and realising your perfect dream coming true.

There are many aspects of kitchen design that can help you to increase the value of your property and / or make it attractive to potential future buyers. The first idea that you’ll want to be accustomed with when it comes to designing your kitchen is  that the vast majority of people like their kitchen should be warm and functional. This is, naturally, a matter of personal taste but we can use some guidelines to help us along the way (should you wish of course – the ultimate and wonderful truth with bespoke kitchen design is that you are the boss and the choice is all yours!)

There are several materials that are generally thought top evoke warm feelings: examples include stone, wood and laminate for kitchen worktops and flooring. When it comes to the kitchen worktops, many things that can make them look elegant and stylish. Some people prefer using stones but you can also use granite or composite stones. Alternatively you can use laminate worktops, which are available in a wide range of inspiring colours. You just need to select the colour that matches the theme of your kitchen. When it comes to cabinetry, many experts suggest that natural finishes and hand painted cabinets give a great touch and a homely feeling to your kitchen.

Always remember that a successful contemporary design is the result of good research and sharp eyes. It is always important and advisable to conduct thorough research on the kitchen design you want before making conclusions. Other things that your kitchen design should consider are good ventilation for health reasons and good lighting. You should always remember that your kitchen design can increase the chances of selling your home in the future or reduce them. Therefore, in order to avoid frustrations when it comes to selling your property, it is advisable to choose your kitchen design wisely remembering that it should suit your tastes and hopefully not be too off-putting for any potential future owner.

Therefore, it is advisable to choose wisely especially if you are planning to live in your current home only for a few years. Call  us on 020 7277 9919 or use our contact form and we’ll be delighted to have a friendly chat and give you  a free, no obligation, estimate.
