Today, Rod answers some of our questions about designing a great kitchen and what trends he has seen lately.
People don’t often think about the additional costs that they need to allow for, for services such as plumbing, electrical and structural work. They also don’t consider how venting rangehoods and flooring footprint can affect the design layout. Sizes of appliances compared to their space is also not considered in some cases. Sometimes people have chosen a 900 cooker and their kitchen space is 2 x 3 metres which doesn’t allow enough space for storage. If they can be flexible with appliances, they can make their kitchen a lot more functional.
