What to Consider When Looking for a New Kitchen

Designing a New Kitchen

There’s a good reason many people think of the kitchen as the heart of the home. It always seems to be the central hub of activity at parties and family get togethers or it can be the ideal quiet place in which to sit and enjoy a good book. Estate agents will also tell you improving the kitchen can be one of the best ways to increase the value of your home.

But most people who embark on a kitchen transformation aren’t motivated by money - they want to modernise a tired old kitchen or improve its layout to better suit their needs. Of course, some people will worry they can’t afford a makeover or a full kitchen refit. But it needn’t cost the earth to create your ideal kitchen and Dream Doors is committed to working with you to make it a reality.


Designing a New Kitchen

Which look is right for you?

Only you know the answer to this question. Do you favour wood or quartz finishes? Granite or laminate? High gloss or matt? Classic kitchens like the Ludlow work well in cream, while blue is a striking choice for the Verona range and the Milano in white lends the room a light and airy feeling.

There are many options and the end goal is unique for everyone. For inspiration, start here. Sitting down with a colour wheel and maybe a sample door in situ is a great idea. But a better one is to arrange a free, no obligation home visit from one of our design professionals and let us help you work out which kitchen is right for you.
