Here are a few questions that may assist you in finding out a little more about what you would like or need in your new kitchen in terms of space and functions; style and decor will take form around these basics. These questions will also be the start of shaping the layout for your kitchen:

·       How labour intensive are the meals that are cooked in your kitchen?

·       How many people live in your home and how many of them love to cook?

·       How many people are in the kitchen at one time and are there times of the          day when your kitchen is busier than others?

·       If your kitchen is busier than usual at certain times of the day, what is                  happening in the space at that time?  Homework, laundry, catching up on            paperwork or bills?

·       What is the perfect height to suit you, and are you left or right handed?

·       Think about what is missing or what you could do with that you do not                   have at the moment when it’s time to cook.

·       Do you have an existing pantry and what other storage concerns would                make life that much easier in your kitchen?

·       Is your kitchen the spot where everybody gathers at mealtimes, acting as a          dining space?

·       Think about what you use the most and what you use the least in your                 kitchen, this is a great opportunity to add and subtract from the space to               make the most of your dream kitchen.

·       How often do you entertain, and when you do, do your guests tend to                  congregate in your kitchen?

·       Is your kitchen the place where everyone gathers and lingers, rather than            in the lounge or dining room?

As your list grows, think about what the best and worst things are in your current kitchen.  By now you will have a pretty good idea of the direction you would like to take towards making your dream kitchen a reality.
