Help with planning the perfect kitchen

Combining hob and practical work preparation spaceTraditionally, the kitchen space has been designed to be functional for preparing and cooking food. Often working on a work-triangle with Fridge, Cooker & sink all within easy distance of each other.

Times have changed and the kitchen is now firmly at the heart of the home and used for a variety of uses.  The emergence of open plan kitchens has also increased the need for better planning.  The work-triangle is still prominent but other factors now need to be considered too.

Holme Tree will help you identify the zones of your kitchen and how they can be improved to work better with each other- planning your bespoke kitchen design.  Typical zones include:

Zone 1 – Food Preparation

The food preparation area is crucial to ensure it is close to fridges & cupboards as well as the sink, bins and recycle space.

Zone 2 – Cooking

Consider what cooking space is needed and how close is it to the sink and preparation spaces.

The clean-up zone works best when located in a separate zone to the preparation area but ideally needs to be close to the sink.

Zone 4 – Seating

Are you using the kitchen for entertaining? If so you need to ensure you have enough seating. In addition to a traditional table, breakfast bars and work islands can be a perfect additional for extra seating

Zone 5 – Tailored Storage

Getting appliances right in your kitchen

What storage do you need?  This needs to be broken down into your crockery, utensils & pots & pans as well as food storage.  Make sure you have the right amount of storage that you need depending on what space you have.  Space saver cabinets can be an added bonus to every kitchen.

Zone 6 – Appliances

We now have more appliances than ever before with cookers, hobs, fridges, dishwasher, washing machines, coffee machines etc. That is before you consider adding TV’s into the mix for socialising.

When planning your perfect kitchen, it is essential that these zone are well planned and worked through to ensure your kitchen has everything you need. 

At Holme Tree, we work closely with you to suggest ideal locations for all your cabinets, appliances, electrical sockets, lighting & more to ensure your new bespoke kitchen flows easily for everyday use. We listen to your needs and ensure every cabinet is designed to maximise the space for you.
