Kitchen Design & Installation

Kitchens are the highest spend room in the house and therefore take some research and planning to make sure you get them right. Ben Guest Kitchens brings together all our services to give you the kitchen you want and a service that you can rely on. From the initial meeting and estimate through to completion we are here to help and ensure that everything runs smoothly.

All estimates are undertaken free of charge and we are happy to advise you on the full design, layout and specification for your new kitchen. The kitchen design and installation works are overseen by an experienced project manager who is happy to discuss any changes or concerns at any point during the project.

There are many ways to go about buying and installing a kitchen, but however you choose to go about the process there are a few areas to consider:

Your kitchen layout

You first priority should be "the working triangle", if you space your fridge, cooker and sink too far apart, you'll clock up miles. However if they're too close, you'll feel cramped. No obstructions – islands, breakfast bar, peninsula etc – should block the triangle, but that's not to say you shouldn't consider them generally – just always leave a metre around an island.

Use a kitchen designer but make sure he/she is not just a salesman with a computer program. It’s worth playing with different concepts, recreating them in your room to get a feel for the space.

Kitchen cabinets

Cabinets are the hardest-working part of the kitchen, so always spend as much as possible on them.

  • If possible then use rigidly manufactured units, soft closing hinges and robust steel drawer runners.
  • Think practically as well as aesthetically when it comes to the finish and layout.
  • There are ranges of handles or handless options available.

Worktops and sinks

There are a number of products on the market to suit budget and requirements. From laminate to quartz, granite and real wood. They all offer different qualities and effects within your kitchen. Some are more durable where as some require regular maintenance. It is worth having a look at all options before making a decision on what to fit.

Sinks come in different materials, layouts and qualities. Again consider how you want to use the sink and what materials will work best for your kitchen. Various tap options can be fitted to sinks to give you hot, cold, chilled and even boiling water, as well as fitting waste disposal units. Just make sure tap units suit the water pressure you have.

Kitchen appliances

The main choice is between built in and free standing appliances. Built in appliances can make the room feel bigger, whereas free standing ones can be used to add colour. There are also more than just a cookers, washing machine and dishwasher to consider. You can now get wine coolers, coffee machines, steamers, microwaves, dryers and American fridges. It is worth checking customer reviews and reports as prices and delivery costs vary enormously.

Whatever you choose for your kitchen, getting the right installer is essential. That’s why choosing Ben Guest Services with our experienced trades including: carpenters, plumbers, tilers, electricians and plasterers will enable you to undertake your kitchen work with confidence and reassurance, knowing you will be guided through the process for the kitchen you set out to create.
