How does the tool simplify the initial planning stage?
Our new tool focuses on the initial planning stage of choosing a new kitchen, helping you to decide upon a design and style. The tool provides you with a standard kitchen layout so that users can then start experimenting with a variety of colours, styles and accessories, such as worktops, handles, flooring and tiles, without the hassle of having to take any actual kitchen measurements.

    The ergonmics and space layout are the most important thing in my view. Once that has been planned then it’s the fun bit of chosing the style, materials and colours. I would always recommend paying particlar attention to the lighting. It can make a huge difference to the mood of the spaces.

  • lisa augustine

    I would say personality and practicality are important. A lot of time is spent in the kitchen, so its nice for it to feel like a part of you, as well as have the ability to be efficient at what its meant to do.

  • Margaret

  • Caroline H

    Practicality is key. It needs to work in the best possible way for the space I’ve got and provide clever storage. If I can achieve this and it looks fabulous too, that’s a bonus.

  • Cathy W
    February 9, 2015 at 10:50 am

    Style and colour is important of course, but I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and I need it to be practical above all, with a kick-ass cooker.

  • Mary Chez
    February 9, 2015 at 10:55 am

    Although style should be taken into consideration I think the most important aspect of designing should be practicality..There is no point in having a beautiful kitchen if it doesn’t work for you

  • Caroline Clarke

    Practicality is most important.

  • tima

    style is most important to me, i want it to be modern and up-to-date, a bit gadgety, but with great functionality πŸ™‚

  • Felicity Smith
    February 9, 2015 at 11:29 am

    Space, where you have it and where you give it up – gives the whole flow the right feeling. Colour if I had to pick between the two though… (colour will date very quickly too)

  • Anna Davison
    February 9, 2015 at 12:12 pm

    I really think the space is the most important – it doesn’t matter how pretty it is, if it annoys you every time you make the tea, you won’t want to be in there anyway!!

  • jennifer bolognesi
    February 9, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    Colour & style are both important & trying to get it right so that it will look in keeping with new styles with small tweaks as a kitchen can so quickly look out of date. I should know mine is definitely ‘vintage’.that’s being kind.

  • Zoe Goulding
    February 9, 2015 at 12:36 pm

    Space, then how practical

  • MJ
    February 17, 2015 at 1:38 pm

    I think it should be a timeless look. I’ve seen so many kitchens when searching for a new house to buy and a lot of them look so old fashioned (when I bet they looked brilliant in their day!). Out-of-date kitchens do put me off houses when I go for viewings.

    February 17, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    The style is most important for me, neutral shades, as these won’t date. Adding colour with accessories. Granite worktops – money was tight when we had our kitchen and I compromised on a cheap option – and it has scratched in one place.

  • Kay Ellerby
    February 18, 2015 at 8:31 am

    The layout first and foremost, then the colour and style and price has a big part in it.

    I think the layout is the most important – the triangle of sink, cooker and fridge around the working area – an island preferably if you have the space!

  • Michelle Carlin
    February 19, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    It’s gor to be functionality – it doesn’t matter how pretty it is, if the layout isn’t practical, then it isn’t going to work.

  • Rachael Medley
    February 19, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    I think the colour is the most important, when you first imagine a kitchen.

  • LetsTryThis

    I think the style is important. When I redo our kitchen I aim to style it in such a way that it appears bigger than it actually is.

  • Becky John
    February 24, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    The layout and style is more important than colour, has to be practical space wise, and a design you know you will love for years, as kitchens are not changed very often.

  • Dawn Costen
    February 24, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    The style and layout is the most important to me as hopefully you will have the kitchen for a long time to come. As much as colour is very important you also have to think long term where fashions go in and out of style. Choose something that hopefully won’t date in 2 years time.
