When working on a luxury kitchen interior design, you will undeniably have lots of different things to think about, from the colour scheme to the new layout, and there are lots of decisions to make. However, one thing that is often overlooked and forgotten about is the kitchen appliances. Even then, some may simply leave a gap for appliances and not include them in the plan from the beginning.
While this may work for some homeowners, it is fair to say that working these appliances into your design early on is incredibly beneficial. With so many different kitchen appliances to choose from, you should ensure you’re thinking about appliances right from the start. To help any homeowners ensure that they’re investing in the best options available for their luxury kitchen interior design, below are a list of things to consider.
Which appliances are a necessity?
The first thing you will need to think about is which appliances are essential for your kitchen. This list usually includes items such as ovens, hobs and fridge/freezers. Ensure you have a clear idea of these things before you start to think about any extras you may need.
When working on a luxury kitchen interior design, you should also think about the things that will make it luxury. For example, are you interested in Quooker boiling water taps instead of having a kettle or would you like to find room for Neff warming and vacuum drawers?
Would you like your appliances built-in?
Once you know precisely what kitchen appliances you need, you should consider whether you would like these to be built-in. You may find that you have different requirements in this regard for various appliances, so make sure you know exactly what needs to be built into the design.
While thinking about this, also consider where it is best for your appliances to be situated in your kitchen. Think about practicality and functionality, but also about the overall look of your new luxury kitchen too.
What style is your kitchen going to be?
It is essential to have a rough idea of the luxury kitchen interior design and, in particular, what style the kitchen is going to be. This will go on to influence your decisions regarding appliances; for example, a traditional kitchen may have a range cooker which will be different from a built-in oven in a modern kitchen.
Do you have any design issues relating to appliances?
When considering everything already mentioned above, you may have come across some potential issues regarding the kitchen appliances you need and your desired placement. Being aware of these at this stage will allow you to work your design around them.
A common issue homeowners tend to have is relating to a cooker hood when they want their hob to be on their kitchen island. Thankfully, there are many modern solutions available from brands like Elica and Neff. So, take a look at the options available for any issues you have.
Have you got a budget in mind for appliances?
As expected, it is always important to consider how much you’d like to spend on your kitchen appliances too. Having a budget in mind, not just for your luxury kitchen interior design as a whole but also specifically for your appliances will be incredibly beneficial when you’re required to make decisions.
When taking the time to consider everything mentioned above, you should find it much easier to not only ensure that you have all of the kitchen appliances that you require but that they also fit perfectly in your luxury kitchen interior design. You may find that thinking about these things in the early stages of design go on to affect the decisions you make later down the line, so it is worthwhile thinking about appliances from the offset.
