Creating your dream kitchen: Step One

Stop. Look. Plan. Don't even THINK about benchtop materials, appliances or colours until you've nutted out a solid plan for your new kitchen. A kitchen is the sum of many parts and will only come together if layout, proportion, storage, and finishes are well thought through before anything is ordered.
Give yourself at least six weeks just to brainstorm, discuss, plan, refine, and—just as important—compromise on your initial ideas. Use graph paper to plot your best layout ideas, take stock of how much you really need to store in your kitchen and then start thinking about ideas for colours, finishes and inspiration. You'll be glad you took the time before leaping in.

  1. I'm wondering if there's any way I could fit those windows into the Fibro. Love them!
