Proportions should be divine…
With any refurbishment, space needs to be calculated, particularly if it’s a kitchen refurbishment. Appliances and utilities need to be positioned in an efficient way, as will worktops, making best use of the space available. Storage is also an important consideration – items such as cutlery and utensils will all need to be stowed away in conveniently-located draws/cupboards. Safety first!
It goes without saying that safety comes first. However, it’s easy to overlook the practicalities, such as electrical points or gas boiler location, but such aspects are fundamental to the success of your refurbished living space. By altering the positioning of utility points and such like, the overall project cost will inevitably escalate so, where possible, opting for a layout which is conducive to working with what you already have available will be beneficial. In any case, it’s crucial that any work carried out involving such components is undertaken by a suitability qualified individual. For example, modifications or alterations involving a cooker or boiler should be performed by a company that is Gas Safety-registered – formerly known as CORGI registered – like ourselves. This is vitally important.
Don’t let it become draining…
The desired layout of your new room could also, to a degree, be dictated by drainage or plumbing structures.
Indeed, it’s ideal if a refurbished kitchen, for example, does not require relocation of pipes as such alterations will inevitably leave you counting the cost. Also, if added pressure is likely to be placed on your drainage system this will be a hugely important factor, while building regulations may also need to be adhered to, depending on the specific nature of the work to be undertaken.
