Have you always dreamed of a brand new kitchen? There could be several reasons why your current design isn’t working for you, from a lack of space to move around in or perhaps dated features that make your property look tired. While there are many approaches to kitchen design, one of the most important aspects is making sure you can transition easily between the cooking area, sink and fridge.
Good planning will help you get the most out of your kitchen, and that is where a kitchen designer comes in. They will listen to your requirements and draw up a plan to implement the changes you’d like. Plus suggest some handy tips you might not have even thought of!
A kitchen redesign can either use your existing space or look to extend it. Extending may be necessary with period properties, as they traditionally have much smaller kitchens. However, a kitchen designer worth their salt will still be able to work with a small space if extending isn’t something you’re willing to consider.
Whatever you have in mind for your new kitchen, we’ll help you find the best local kitchen designers to make your vision come to life.

What inspired you to start your own business?
From a very early age, I enjoyed making things and would often help my Grandfather in his workshop. On leaving school my Grandfather gave me a brochure for an amazing school called The John Makepeace School for Craftsmen in Wood, I was determined I wanted to go, I got in 1981 - 1983. It became Parnham College, Parnham House, the world-famous design and furniture making school founded by John Makepeace. It was a natural progression to leave that incredible training which encouraged and integrated a business start-up immediately on leaving. Although I worked in a number of jobs, including as a designer for Theo Crosby at Pentagram working on Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Unilever House and Reuters until I set up Tim Wood Furniture in 1988, now Tim Wood Ltd and Tim Wood Furniture Ltd

A kitchen is often regarded as the hub of a home and as such, is a hive of activity. From cooking, socialising, eating and cleaning - there’s a lot that takes place in a kitchen! So what you should aim for is a kitchen that truly works for your needs and gives you plenty of space to be able to move around in.
If the layout is awkward or lacks space it’s simply not going to work for your family. So, if you are currently having any such issues then this is what you need to tell your kitchen designer. Invite them into the space so they can suggest an alternate solution. You can then begin to think about the aesthetics which will work in tandem with the initial design and planning.
Different types of Kitchen Designs
Many different elements make up kitchen design, including the layout of units as well as the placement of your appliances. These categories reflect the style you wish to opt for, so narrowing these down will help determine your kitchen design.
Luxury Kitchens - Luxury kitchens have bespoke features and premium quality materials. For example, granite worktops, underfloor heating, extensions, or a sliding door leading straight to the garden. Luxury kitchens are exquisite, which makes them far more expensive than regular kitchen design. However, when designed well, they will increase the value of your property.
Modern Kitchens - Trends are ever-changing, but the current definition of a modern kitchen is something which uses clean colours and is flooded with natural light. Sleek, glossy units are also very popular, as are ‘hidden’ features that keep things minimalistic.
Rustic Kitchens - Want a kitchen that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the countryside? Rustic designs use earthy materials such as wood and stone, to create a homely feel. They are ideal for those who love to cook, especially with traditional appliances such as an Aga oven.
Simplistic Kitchens - Not all kitchen designs have to be big and fancy. It’s perfectly possible to keep things simple, especially if you’re working with a much smaller space. Simplistic kitchen design is all about going back to basics. It will focus on giving you space to prepare your food and use the sink, rather than adding in too many units or pieces of furniture.

What to look for in a Kitchen Designer
As with any designer you are looking to hire, a flair for creativity, innovation and problem solving are highly desirable qualities. Ideally, the individual or company will be highly experienced in the inner-workings of a kitchen. They will fully understand what pitfalls to avoid, and be able to advise on what layout would maximise the space and natural light in your home.
