choose your style

Choosing a style for your new kitchen is fun! The style can help you narrow down appliances, cabinetry, layouts and fittings. Think about the way you cook, entertain and who's using the kitchen. Then think about popular design trends including Modern, Hamptons, Industrial, Dark toned or Country, or maybe you're looking at a smaller kitchen for an apartment or unit?

Find your dream appliances

Have you always wanted a large French door fridge with ice and water, or maybe a big freestanding cooker with an eye-catching rangehood? Choosing your appliances first will guarantee you can include space for them with enough powerpoints, plumbing and gas fittings in your plans - avoiding costly changes once plans and fittings are in.

choose the best layout

The final step in the design journey is to choose the best layout for your new kitchen. Think about the appliances and style you've chosen, how much space you have and how 'traffic' flows through your house. U Shaped, L Shaped, Galley and Straight Line are all popular layouts for modern kitchens - take a look at our guide decoding each style.
