A contemporary kitchen for your home

As the kitchen is the heart of the home for many families, a new kitchen will require a great deal of planning and design with emphasis on the features and materials used. A kitchen should not only look good, but also be functional and last for many years, as it is a large investment. It is possible to either design and fit a kitchen yourself if you are handy in this area, or enlist professionals to ensure a fully guaranteed kitchen.

The design is a crucial stage of choosing your kitchen and a professional kitchen designer will prove to be invaluable. The arrangement of appliances, cupboards and other fittings will impact upon your lifestyle and should all work together to make life as easy as possible for the whole family. There are many companies who fit kitchens but you should look for a company who can take care of the whole process from the planning stages through to fitting. Here at Wickes we offer a professional kitchen design service to ensure you get the kitchen you are looking for. You will also find project leaflets with Wickes contemporary kitchen designs and ideas so that you can purchase one of our take away kitchens to fit yourself.

Take away kitchens allow you to purchase whatever you like from a range, only buying the pieces that you need in order to update your existing kitchen. Doing this will allow you to keep prices as low as possible, whilst still achieving a contemporary kitchen. Wickes contemporary kitchen designs and ideas will show you how to make the most of space that you have, creating a much larger area for the whole family to dine in style or just relax with friends.

Many families use the kitchen as a main living area, with children doing homework after school, food preparation and storage as well as providing a dining area to entertain friends and family. As a kitchen has to work hard to provide all this, a professional kitchen designer will help you to plan and allow for all eventualities whilst retaining style and keeping the cost as low as possible.

There are many features of a new kitchen to consider such as the flooring, wall coverings, material to be used for work surfaces and units and colour scheme. Usage should be considered when choosing wall and floor covering as a kitchen that has high traffic volumes will require an easy to clean, hardwearing finish which retains the sense of style and elegance that you are looking for. Wickes contemporary kitchen designs and ideas offer you the chance to look at the latest designs and styles, while also comparing colour schemes to see the effect they would have on your kitchen.

The latest kitchen designs also maximise space in your kitchen which is always useful, while keeping clean lines and avoiding clutter. A simple, clean finish to a kitchen can be achieved by clever use of space saving design for storage, with easy to care for materials.
