When we had our kitchen installed in 1979 by Möben we had cupboards below the work surfaces with no wall cabinets.
As we’ve got older, and when I was pregnant too, getting down to find items in the cupboards has proved to be difficult, especially in the two deep corner cupboards which our girls called the ‘nasty cupboards’.
So in designing our new kitchen we wanted drawers at low level with cupboards above and a pull out larder section for easy access.
For the same reason we wanted ovens at eye or at least waist level.
Also important to us was an office area where we could store stationery, craft materials, files, and a ‘pending’ place where we could put things that needed to be dealt with.
In designing our new kitchen we looked for a company that could suggest an ergonomic solution for all our needs. Also one that could coordinate all the services we would need, i.e. plumbing, electrics, flooring and building work including knocking down the central wall.
I was impressed with Kitchensmart when I saw their stand in Middleton Hall last autumn. We visited their showroom earlier this year and liked what we saw. They are a Milton Keynes based company that designs and provides German built kitchens and German appliances.
Dan has taken us through the whole process with no pressure, but with guidance and an intelligent interpretation of our requirements.
We’ve been provided with computer generated photos of what our kitchen will look like, and a timetable of work. All our questions and anxieties have been answered satisfactorily and sympathetically in person, on the phone and by email.
We’ve been impressed by all the workmen that have been involved so far.
This is what the kitchen looked like last Thursday.
