The best solution is to install underfloor heating for all-round ambient warmth. Follow our simple steps on how to plan a kitchen, from inspiration to installation.

The peninsula unit is a great tool for creating a U-shaped kitchen within a larger space. This smart modern design features conventional units along one wall and one window and a peninsula that continues the run of storage and worktop space without the need for a third wall. Keeping the space open along one side like this is a great solution for open-plan areas where you want to define a kitchen without screening it from view. all-white space has the look of a U-shaped kitchen, while incorporating a walk-through in front of the high level units along the back wall.

Never pay a deposit of more than 25% of the total contract value and ensure you have a written schedule for further payments. Don't pay in full until you have received delivery of your goods. The KBSA (Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association) has these guidelines for choosing your kitchen company: Visit a company that has a showroom so you can inspect the quality of the product and the standard of installation. Choose a retail member with a track record of good installations and ask to speak to some previous customers. Be careful about paying in full for your kitchen in advance. You shouldn't pay a deposit of more than 25% and as it's likely that you'll be asked to make an interim payment, ask for a written payment schedule. Make sure you have a written quotation that covers every aspect of the job including fitting, flooring and any structural alterations you have discussed. Don't sign anything unless you are prepared to honour your side of the contract.
