What to Avoid When Planning a New Kitchen

When planning a new kitchen as part of your property refurbishments, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed by new trends and technologies. Home décor magazines and websites make everything look so innovative and attractive. It’s important, however, to think long term and be sensible about your new design. Afterall, the kitchen is the most important part of the home; it’s the central hub where socialising occurs. So it needs to work for you and your family.

PRK Building Services Ltd is on hand to offer advice about all aspects of the services we provide for our clients in Portsmouth and the surrounding Hampshire areas. Our new home builders have excellent ideas about space creation and intelligent design, and our property extensions, refurbishments and home renovation services are provided with the utmost professionalism and expertise.

Think Twice!

We’ve put together a brief list of some common kitchen design mistakes. When deciding that a new look is the next project for your home, keep them in mind.

Microwave
Some treat this appliance like an oven and position an integrated microwave over the cooker. Although this frees up space on the worktop, younger family members won’t be able to reach it. Consider placing the microwave underneath the worktop instead for universal use. 

Pots & Pans
Hanging pots over a kitchen island, or positioning them on a display stand, leads to a variety of dust collectors. And you don’t want that falling onto the worktop when reaching up for one pot and disturbing the rest. Use cupboard space wisely and include as much storage as possible when considering one of PRK Building Services’ property extensions or home renovation services.

Trends
Think long term for your Portsmouth home. What’s in vogue this year will be a thing of the past soon enough. Try to keep your kitchen design as neutral as possible so the overall look won’t appear dated over time, and use accessories instead. Our new home builders and property refurbishments experts are on hand to advise you.

Splashbacks
Don’t minimise the splashback behind the sink or cooker. Even if you prefer a streamlined look, water and grease don’t just stick to the one area. Splashes end up a lot further out than you think and you’ll want to avoid grease stains appearing on newly painted walls or across your cookbooks. Spread out the splashbacks for easy cleaning.
