Although designing a new kitchen is undoubtedly an exciting process, it’s something that requires a lot of planning. Trying to create a kitchen that’s both contemporary and functional, whilst also trying to use the space wisely is a difficult task - and is more likely to be achieved with the help of a professional interior designer.


Not only does hiring a designer allow you to create your dream kitchen with a professional finish, it also helps you to save time, as project timescales and deadlines will need to be put in place. This means that you won’t have to worry about co-ordinating the installation and you can enjoy the design process better. Having time frames means that you’ll have a finish date, and you’ll have a clear idea of how long each step in the process should take. Receiving help from an interior designer also takes a lot of the pressure and inconvenience away from yourself, including dealing with sub-contractors and the stress of project management. This will help to transform the process from a potentially mundane and difficult job to one which you can enjoy, since you’ll be left with the fun tasks in the design process.

Once you’ve given the designer a clear idea of what it is you’d like, including colour schemes, layout and functionality, the designer can then use their existing contacts to find the best furniture items for you. This way, you’ll know that any sourced furniture will be of a high quality and good value for money. You’ll also receive expert advice on the best ways to position your furniture and the size it should be with respect to your available space. Interior designers also have access to a range of other resources, including contacts with an array of trusted suppliers, tradesmen and artisans. This way, you can relax - as your designer will sort all of this for you.

Your designer will also help you to sort out a budget so that you can save money along the way. One of the most difficult things to get right, especially when designing a luxury kitchen, is knowing where best to source your items without overspending. With years of experience in this field, your designer will help you to ensure that you’re spending your money in the right places.

If you’re a little unsure of how to create a kitchen that incorporates modern design, a professional designer will always be aware of the latest trends. Not only this, but the experts like to use designs that are timeless - so they’ll always create a classic and stylish ambience in your kitchen. At Contour Kitchens, we like to use Leicht furniture alongside Dekton, Silestone and Corian worktops, since these are not only manufactured using high quality materials, but also adapt with a vast array of colour schemes. This allows us to create an elegant kitchen design that is to your taste and within budget.  Although you may fall in love with your design plan, it’s always a good idea to get it checked by a fresh pair of eyes - and whose eyes are better than those of a professional designer? They’ll expertly match your favourite colours, whilst helping you to make your kitchen a reflection of your personality.
