How to plan a kitchen layout. In most cases, the size and shape of your room will determine the most suitable design, and it's always helpful to consider the classic ‘working triangle'. This concept is designed to minimise effort and walking distance between the sink, fridge and cooker by placing them on three points of a triangle. This approach works with most kitchen layouts, although, if you have to run all the appliances and the sink along one wall, you may need to ‘flatten' the triangle. To do this, position the three points in a line with just a few steps to walk in between. However, nothing is set in stone. ‘If the triangle works in your kitchen that's great, but don't feel you have to be a slave to it,' says kitchen designer Mark Wilkinson. ‘If you have to walk a few extra steps, it will be worth it if it means you're able to include an extra element you really like that wouldn't otherwise fit into the design.
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.
