1 - Take your time. Test and retest all the possible combinations to find the style that suits your home and also reflects your personality.
2 - Never accept second-best. The kitchen is the most lived-in part of the home, but also the most risky, so never accept second-best. You need a safe environment for you and your family, and also one which will last. When you are designing it, remember that you may spend a large part of your day there!
3 - Avoid beautiful but impossible kitchen designs. Never choose an attractive kitchen that does not suit the space you have. We would all love to have massive, Hollywood-style kitchens, with large islands or peninsulas for family Christmas dinners, but we need to focus on ergonomics and functionality and use the space we have as best we can. Choose comfortable and functional units and avoid creating narrow spaces.
4 - Do not underestimate small spaces. There are numerous solutions for making the most of the space you have. Kitchens for small spaces must be attractive but functional. You can choose between the various modular kitchens with internal equipment and accessories so that you can easily optimise the space available.
5 - Choose your own kitchen design. Advice is always welcome, but the choice is yours. Your mother wants a classic kitchen, your sister-in-law prefers a super-modern and sterile one, but you? Accept advice but remember that the great thing about designing a modular kitchen is that it is made to measure. It is a garment tailored to your need for space and the use you make of it. You can choose between a thousand different combinations, so be bold, think about what you like and choose the kitchen design that suits you best.
