Planning Your Kitchen

The easiest way is to let us do this for you! We have state of the art computer software that will allow us to create a 3D image of your new kitchen.

However if you would like to have a go yourself (and this is actually a helpful process in determining what you need and what the restrictions are) then use this following guide to help you:

Design Considerations


Think about where any restrictions lie: any item requiring plumbing (sink, dishwasher, washing machine) will need to be within easy access of the water in and outlet, any extractor fan needs to be on an outside wall, and try not to position the oven next to the fridge.


Think about how you want to use your kitchen: How much time will you be spending in your kitchen every day? Is it the focal point of your home? Will you be eating or entertaining in it? If so what seating will you have? Do you want to hide stuff away in it or put it on display? Do you also need it to store utility items (ironing board, vacuum cleaner)?


Imagine using your new kitchen. Go through the process of making a cup of tea: where do you store the cups, where’s the water, the tea bags, the milk, the waste bin? Do you have enough work surface for food preparation, serving, storage? Consider where you will put portable items such as microwave, kettle, toaster and music station or TV.


Lastly, think about lighting (ceiling, wall or low level) and heating (under-floor, plinth heater).

    Bridget & Allen - Forest of Dean

  • We would like to send you all a HUGE thank you for the brilliant service we have received throughout this long process of choosing a kitchen and working around our building schedule

    From the first day I popped in to see what you were all about, there has always been a warm welcome, an efficient service but more than that, you have gone out of your way to take care of us. You worked with our budget to give us a kitchen we didn’t think was affordable  before we came to you, and one which we are really happy with. You listened to our needs, our likes and dislikes, and the varying opinions that we brought as a family. Your fitters are also a credit  to “The Kitchen Broker” and Mike and Connor not only worked efficiently and with amazing speed, but continued to give us that extra service and care that is invaluable. They even gave Jonathan a “master class” ! I would recommend you to anyone looking for that “extra special” touch that is so hard to find. Many, many thanks.
