Designing a kitchen shouldn’t be underestimated; it’s a huge task. There’s a difference between a kitchen design you like and can live with, and designing a kitchen you really, really love; one that suits your lifestyle to a T.
Let's talk about the ins and outs of planning your dream kitchen, so you can fall in love with your space again.
The Ins And Outs of Planning Your Dream Kitchen
Assess Your Needs And The Needs Of Those You Live With
Think carefully about your needs, as well as the needs of those you live with. How will you be using your kitchen most? How will your kids be using it? Will you be entertaining guests, cooking food, doing homework...all of the above? You’ll need to plan carefully to make sure all of your bases are covered. Put together a wish list of items that everyone would like to see included in the space, then work together to streamline the list into about half a dozen of the most necessary and useful items.
Get Help From A Professional
Help from a professional with experience will help you to get the most out of your kitchen design. You might be given some innovative ideas that you may not have considered before. This advice will help to ensure that your kitchen not only functions well, but that it looks great too.

Create A Vision Board
You shouldn’t follow trends in your dream kitchen; this is a personal choice and the design should be something that you really love. You can get a good idea of what you’ll love by making collages and mood boards. You can do this IRL using magazines and newspapers, or online with sites like Pinterest. Are there any materials and surfaces that you’ve seen work well together? Note that down, too. When you’re gathering ideas and inspiration, don’t worry too much about the cost. Just choose things that make you feel happy, and you’ll get a good idea of what you’re drawn to.

Add A Boiling Tap
If you're looking to add something funky-yet-valuable to your kitchen, why not check out boiling taps? A boiling water tap dispenses hot water instantly, so there’s no need to boil a kettle. The water is stored at the correct temperature in a unit under your sink so when you turn on the tap, piping hot water is available right away. This can help you save money, time & energy over using a kettle when making multiple cups a day.
Remember: your dream kitchen isn't meant to just look good. It should suit your lifestyle and your family, too!
