IDEAS TO THINK ABOUT WHEN PLANNING YOUR KITCHEN

Work out how many sockets you’ll need at work-surface level. Most people have a kettle, toaster and microwave in regular use, so it’s good to think about placing these somewhere easy to access. Other kitchen gadgets to consider are breadmakers, coffee machines, food processors, fryers, hand blenders and mixers, health grills, jug blenders, juicers, slow cookers, smoothie makers and steamers.
Key to the design of your kitchen are your storage requirements. Asses your needs – what you have to store away and how much storage space you will therefore need. Consider also what you want to be on display or hidden away.

Think about the different types of storage available: kitchen islands, open shelves, pull-out units, corner storage racks, hooks, freestanding units such as dressers, floor-to-ceiling cupboards, plate racks and wine racks (built in or freestanding). Once you have the dimensions of your kitchen, you can then determine what types of storage will fit where and how these will best serve your needs.

  • Keep the work triangle distance (see picture, right) between the sink, fridge and cooker at 7m or less. This makes cooking easier, as you’ll have shorter distances to travel.
  • Allow for a 40cm clearance between an open kitchen door and the nearest opposite unit. Ensure at least 120cm clearance between runs of kitchen units, so that two people can move around at once.
  • Standard 60cm-deep units will be a tight squeeze if your kitchen is less than 180cm wide from one wall to the other. Solve this by looking for slimmer 50cm-deep units.
  • Leave at least 40cm clearance between the worktop and wall-mounted cupboards. Most unit doors open up to a maximum of 60cm.
  • Dishwasher doors usually open by 60cm and oven doors by 50cm. A typical worktop height is 90cm, although this will not be ideal for everybody. Ensure that elbow height is a few centimetres above kitchen worktops
The table below shows some average size guidelines for kitchen units, worktops and kitchen sinks:
