The beauty of renovations is that you can fashion the kitchen you have been wishing for since you moved into your home. You can realise that extra bench space; those drawers you covet in your friend's kitchen; that stove top with the industrial wok burner.

However the process of designing your new kitchen comes down to more than a wish list and requires the consideration of many factors. Here are some of the key points here that you will need to address.

So much of your design is going to be determined by the amount of money you are willing to spend.

Movement traingle

The most important part of kitchen cupboard design is to consider how food moves through the kitchen, from storage to preparation to cooking and washing, etc.  As part of the plan you also want to minimise the movement triangle – fridge to sink to oven.

The kitchen sink is usually located under the window (so you can look at things whilst washing the dishes), with the sink size being dependent on whether you are having a dishwasher or not.

Bench tops

If the kitchen sink features prominently then your bench top is king. Make sure it is large enough to accommodate your needs. It will also consist of a large amount of material, so if you are investing granite pay close attention to its size and design.

Rangehood venting

Now is the perfect time for you to vent the range hood outside, so this might put restrictions on your plan.


Give the flooring consideration as different materials are more prone to slips and falls.


There is nothing more frustrating than trying to cook or prepare food while you cast a shadow over your area of work.


Design a safe kitchen, especially if there are children in the house.


  • "My friends have been impressed and I am happy to recommend your service to your future customers. I know I'm a bit fussy and have a good eye for detail, I'm very happy with the finished product."
    Victoria - Camperdown

  • "My wife is especially grateful, with the prospect of a fantastic new kitchen early in the New Year. She is in a wheel chair and we plan to take most of the height out of the kickboard so that there is a double bonus for her replacement of the tired old kitchen with the beautiful new one, as well as it being much lower and therefore much easier for her to use."
