space could be additional storage, seating, ornament and free design. Place the sink area looking out of a window, as daylight gives a better user experience. This will also make plumbing easier. Focusing on the users’ experience – as well as quality and looks – will yield more recommendations later. Consider also ventilation and extraction in your layout. Plan the layout before the first fix, so the electrical supply is conducive to your outline design or diagram.


While it is important to compare prices and styles as much as reasonably feasible, also make sure to look at technical functionality and wear on corner unit mechanisms, overhead storage hinges and deep drawer runners. Also, check the durability of units in-


store, and even ask them to demonstrate the unit’s weight-bearing properties. When high quality units have been installed, homeowners will appreciate the excep- tional weight-bearing strength of units later down the line, along with the durability of cosmetic unit facades in terms of wear and tear or flaws. A strong kitchen with a good fit-out will feel newer for longer.
