Kitchens are known as the heart of the home: We cook our favourite meals, spend time with our families and socialise – so its important that kitchens look and feel comfortable to be around. Achieving the kitchen design of your dreams is easy if you know exactly what you want. Getting your kitchen layout right is the most important factor in ensuring a functional and practical kitchen area. Whether your kitchen is small and cramped or large and expansive, a clever layout will make all the difference in helping you to get the most out of the space. Especially in a kitchen, there is a lot more to layout than just placing furniture and cabinetry: ergonomics has a huge role to play as well. Getting the heights right, ensuring enough space for comfortable movement, placement of appliances and ease of use are all going to factor in your enjoyment of the room.
