Planning a Kitchen

Fitting a new kitchen isn’t simply a matter of throwing all the units up in the air and seeing where they land! There is an art to kitchen design. There are very much two sides to the installation of a kitchen, how it will function and how it will look. There is some amount of overlap regarding these two sides but they are certainly not the same.

A kitchen could look amazing but if the components are in the wrong places, and the units don’t suit the owners uses and habits it will fail to please. If a kitchen is perfectly planned out but uses handles, colours and design that doesn’t suit the room or building it simply won’t be aesthetically pleasing.

Here we will deal with planning the function of your new kitchen.

First step is to try and identify facts about how you actually use your kitchen. Ask yourself a few questions like the ones below:


Kitchen Units Ideas


Wine / Bottle Storage

If 750ml to 1-litre bottles of wine, squash or water are a constant fixture in your household then a purpose-built unit option might be perfect. Usually, this unit is as simple as multiple cubby holes the width and height of a horizontally laid bottle. Look around your current stores and find out how many bottles of this size you have. These units can be supplied in many different sizes but usually, it's 6 or 12 bottles. At ground level, these units are easily accessible so watch out if you have small children that like to look for interesting things to grab onto and pull out.

Tray Storage

Works great in tandem with the towel rail. Simply a spot between 2 units that you can stand up trays and/chopping boards while they aren't being used. It's a small touch but a nice extra if you're trying to keep a tidy and clear kitchen worktop while you're not cooking or preparing food.


Towel Rails

Usually a metal tube set in between 2 units that you can hand a dishcloth on. The tube will be telescopic and can be pulled out to allow access to the cloth. Not a great place to allow a dishcloth to dry out so this might be a better place to store spare dry dishcloths ready to swap in when needed.

Spice Rack

If cooking is a big deal for you then adding a fitted spice rack might be a good plan. A well-stocked and varied spice rack takes some of the guesswork out of creating your next culinary masterpiece and it looks nice too. There are, however, some points to consider before you take the plunge. Check your current selection of spices, count them and find out what size racks you can choose. If your cooking repertoire spans the world over you may not be able to squeeze your selection into the racks available. Also, spice rack units are for only those small glass spice jars, if you buy bigger spice containers you'll be out of luck.


Corner Carousels

These awesome inventions are becoming a staple in any modern kitchen now. They range widely in complexity and cost. Ultimately a corner carousel unit unlocks the space tucked in the corner of your kitchen units. Generally, when you open the door for the carousel unit a couple of trays, upper and lower, will spin out allowing access to the items that begin the motion out of reach. If you elect to save money and don't choose a carousel unit it's not the end of the world but you can expect to be stretching into dark corners to fumble around a bit to get what you need.

Bin Slider

If you would like your bins hidden from view there are 2 paths. Bins can be mounted on runners in a unit that slide out when needed, or they can be attached to the inside of a unit door. You might need to think about the types of waste that you generate and what is collected in your area. A bin for landfill waste and one for recycling would probably be a bare minimum. Some councils collect numerous waste types so you may need more. A bin for glass collection may be well advised if your house goes through a sizable quantity of jam, wine, or beer!


So, What Happens Next?

What's a normal kitchen fit process like?

It all starts with a careful planning phase.

  • First meeting with kitchen fitters

    We'll meet at the kitchen location and work out what exactly you are looking for in your new install.

  • Our input

    Our kitchen fitters have years of experience, we'll suggest a plan. This will include ideas and enhancements that we can bring to the table.

  • Formal planning

    We'll come up with a drawn plan of the planned final product which will consider the first draft. Adjustments will be made based on your feedback and further suggestions from Floor 2 Ceiling Carpentry.

  • Final design

    The previous stage may last some time but should culminate in a final plan. All parties will sign off on the plan and negotiate a final price to match.

  • Hold the date

    Alongside the final agreement we will agree on the start-date and timescales. Every endeavour is always made to stick to the timeline but nasty suprises are always a possibility. Some leeway is sometimes necessary.


With Planning Complete Lets Get Underway

Losing your kitchen temporarily is never a fun experience.

Our kitchen fitters know that speedy and efficient install is in all our interests!

  • Stop the flow

    First things first. We will be halting the water supply as an initial step so we can make a start on the pipework. We will try to organise this for minimum impact on your day to day.

  • Removal

    This bit always seems to happen fast. We will remove everything that needs to go from the current kitchen including storage and electrical. Then comes any excess pipes and cabling followed by the removal and/or moving of walls, windows, doors, etc.

  • New beginnings

    Now that we have a blank slate to work with we will start to fit extra electrics and plumbing that is required. This is done in conjuction with any plastering and flooring. Now the background is set for the kitchen.

  • The fit

    Now the kitchen proper can be fitted. Base and wall units. Tops, fitted items and sinks to follow.

  • Details

    We complete the process with the final important details such as splashback tiling, panelling and cornice/pelmets.
