3 Common Mistakes Made With Kitchen Upgrades

County has you covered for all forms of home improvement, including conservatory, orangery, window and door installations. 

Extended Kitchen & Dining Area

We’re synonymous with these types of projects, and we also have a very solid reputation in kitchen extensions. 

If you’re wanting a bigger and better kitchen than what you currently have, and why wouldn’t you as kitchens are the new living rooms, County is very well-placed to get this organised. 

We promise to deliver the perfect kitchen, one that’s served up to offer you everything and free of the mistakes that often arise in some kitchen setups and cause a culinary nightmare. 

Mistakes like these…

Not enough worktops

Baking became a big thing during the pandemic, in a country with an already strong appetite for cooking. 

For any keen baker or cook, worktop space in the kitchen is your friend. If you don’t have enough of it, it could easily send you into a Gordon Ramsay-style meltdown.

This situation is so easily avoided and just needs a thorough discussion between you and the designer, so they can determine exactly how much worktop space will be sufficient.

Poor lighting

Cooking isn’t just a daytime pursuit. What about those cold, winter nights when you need to prepare those hearty dishes? Your family may also come together at the kitchen dining table after dark. 

With that in mind, having the right type and right amount of lighting is absolutely imperative. 

So that kitchen chores can be carried out without any hassles at the sink or hob, you want some task lighting, and mood or accent lighting will do a fine job of putting a spotlight on your eating area/s. 

Ill-fitting appliances

Kitchens are full of appliances, ranging from fridges, ovens, dishwashers and microwaves to freezers, toasters, food processors and pressure cookers. 

Do a tally of them all before your new kitchen extension is designed, and measure them up so that a kitchen layout can be organised that they will neatly fit into. 

Imagine the despair it would cause if you found your appliances to be oversized for your brand-new kitchen. 

County has been designing kitchen extensions for years, so Hell’s Kitchen is the last thing you will get. Request a kitchen quote here.
