Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house, but it is also one of the most difficult to design correctly.
Rather than doing it yourself, there are many reasons why hiring a professional designer & builder will ensure the project runs smoothly, so you end up with a home and kitchen space that you are proud of.
Expert product knowledge
Every year there are new materials and appliances released, and staying up to date with the latest trends can be difficult if you’re not working with them every day. Through regular contact with manufacturers and attending various trade shows, a professional designer & builder ensures that their clients have access to the most innovative, durable and cost-effective products.
An eye for what looks good
Professional designers live and breathe design, so they have an eye for what works and what doesn’t. Rather than trying to decide between different shades of tiles, cabinetry, counter tops and taps, your professional designer can easily match things together based on your preferred colour scheme.
Your space will be functional
Designing your own space may mean that some features or functions are forgotten about, leaving you with feelings of regret in the future. Your design expert will take into account your family size, routine and entertaining habits to create a space that is fully functional and has everything you need.
They will oversee the project from start to finish
Designing your home and kitchen may seem like a simple process, but you also need to think about how the renovation will work from inception right through to build. There are builders, plumbers and electricians to co-ordinate, materials and appliances to purchase and have delivered, and if you already have a busy work and family schedule, this can very quickly become impossible to manage. Having a professional design and build team that can oversee the renovation from start to finish will leave you with one less thing to worry about.
Choosing the right designer
There are numerous design & build providers ready and able to take on your project, but not everyone will be a good fit. When choosing the team that will redesign and implement your dream home, it’s important to:
- Meet with them face-to-face to discuss your ideas. Do they take your thoughts into consideration as well as make suggestions? Do you feel that you could work with them for potentially a few months?
- Look at their past work and testimonials. Most designers will be proud to showcase their work on their website, so browse through their recent projects to see what kitchen & home designs they have completed. Testimonials from previous clients will also tell you a lot about the designer.
- Check their credentials. What qualifications does the designer hold? How many years’ experience do they have?
