Custom kitchen under the supervision of the designer
As soon as you decide on a new kitchen, you start thinking about the basic question: Will I choose a kitchen from the studio or will I have a kitchen made to measure? Kitchens from common kitchen studios can entice you to an extremely low price, or 50% discount and free designs. However, there is a hook hidden in everything.
The shortcomings of attractively cheap kitchens often start to show after the first year of use. A well-designed and processed kitchen can cost several thousand euros, even without appliances. Prices vary depending on the size of the kitchen and the type of fittings used. At such a price, you simply cannot afford to make a mistake. How can a designer / architect help you in this case and why choose this path?
The designer has an overview
Many clients have trouble looking at the current or future kitchen layout with a view. It’s natural, we are all fixed on our habits and sometimes we can no longer even imagine that it can work differently. The designer does not have this problem and can design the room to use the space 100% and create the necessary functional and operational relationships.
What is just IN?
A good interior designer, he has an overview of what styles are currently popular. Most importantly, it will help you choose a style that fits into your interior and will suit your lifestyle.
How to know the quality?
There is a wide range of products for your new kitchen. The designer will present you not only traditional, but also high-quality materials that you will not find in large supermarkets with construction goods. They will advise you on how to choose a kitchen countertop, screen, tiling or fittings.
Can I prevent wear and tear?
Kitchens are not just a place where you prepare or consume food. Once in a while, guests or children can do their homework there, in addition to feeding their pets. The interior designer will guide you to use materials that look great and withstand even unexpected loads.
How do I ensure the smooth running of the project?
The professional interior designer will stay with you from the beginning of the project until its successful end. You probably have to spend every working day at your job and you are not always close when you need to answer the supplier’s questions. The designer will supervise the work and at the same time communicate with the contractor. This will ensure that unnecessary errors and misunderstandings do not occur.
The designer will provide everything you need, from meeting your budget to selecting the right materials. He knows your project down to the smallest detail and knows how to manage it, so the work goes on schedule and without unnecessary delays.
Which appliance is right for us?
A well-designed kitchen must take into account the location of appliances and the logical planning of outlets, drains and sockets. A good designer will advise you on choosing the right types of appliances, incorporate them directly into the project documentation and inform the contractor about them.
How to properly “light up” the kitchen?
Every kitchen needs perfectly thought-out, purpose-built and ambient lighting. The designer works with an electrician to make sure that all the outlets for the luminaires are ready and, finally, that the luminaires are correctly fitted and that there is sufficient illumination of the space.
How to avoid unnecessary and costly mistakes?
Even though you have a sense for detail and aesthetics and you are almost sure what you want your kitchen to look like – the designer has formal knowledge and experience that can save you from inadvertent solutions or even fatal mistakes. The charm of an ideally configured kitchen lies in the correct use of the working triangle (sink, hob and fridge) and taking into account the way the kitchen is used.
The architect or interior designer will easily design a working kitchen for you, but some things will remain for you. Do some research before designing. Find out what you like, what your requirements and expectations are. Share what you prefer with your designer. Build positive relationships with the people who are involved in realizing your dream kitchen. Be flexible and open to their ideas, get advice.
Last piece of advice at the end? Do it right the first time. May the new kitchen please you as long as possible, because durability is not only a matter of maintenance, but also of design.
