Upgrading your kitchen: Kitchen Concepts

Planning a new kitchen? Knowing a few basic things before getting started will make the selection and installation process quicker and smoother.

Sometimes all you need is a bit of guidance. “A lot of people, when they start their kitchen journey, don’t really know where to begin,” says Glen Kelman of Kitchen Concepts. “We can coordinate the whole process for the client – we have reliable trades people that we work with and have worked with for a considerable number of years.”

While starting the process can be daunting, working with a company such as Kitchen Concepts to collaborate with a designer that understands your needs, and have the process handled for you from design to in-house manufacturing and installation, will make it easy for you – they can take care of every step.

After finding the right fit and meeting with the designer to discuss your wants and needs, the fun part begins – choosing colours and materials. While it can be overwhelming with the huge number of options available, the designers can take the hassle out of this stage for you.

“Based on a recent study 70% of designers are now saying that cabinetry-wise, their clients are leaning towards colour – whether it’s colour or a woodgrain. That’s a big change in comparison to what we’ve seen over the last few years,” comments Glen.

Other trends include rich oak cabinetry, textured splashbacks – this small change can make a big impact to your space – and soft curves on benchtops and corners of islands. Incorporating your personal style into the design is another thing to consider.

Beyond aesthetics, functionality is important to make your day-to-day kitchen tasks a breeze. When designing your kitchen, consider adequate ventilation, storage, kitchen lighting and functional details including placement of plugs and if everything’s at the right height.

The team have nailed the process and can manage everything through to install for you. They believe that all homeowners should be able to access an option that fits within their budget and aim to align an option that suits everyone’s needs from small renovations to a large new build. In addition to kitchens, they can also help with laundries and wardrobes – any of your joinery needs.

“We have three amazing designers here that we pick and choose who would fit the client the best, and the project as well. We’ve got the experience and people to back it all up and do a good job,” Glen explains.
