Plan Your Dream Kitchen With Brewers

June 11th, 2020

There is a lot to think about when designing a kitchen, from constructing an entirely new layout to deciding on door handles. Brewers is a family run business and the largest independent decorator’s merchant in the country with over 170 stores nationwide and we have enlisted the help of its Kitchen Design Expert Andy Sandford and collected some tips to help get the ball rolling on your dream kitchen.

It’s important to understand the space that you want to redesign. Are you discarding old appliances? Will electricity and plumbing need rerouting? Do you want to change the way you use your kitchen? There are lots of questions to consider before taking the plunge with a new kitchen design.

It might not be necessary to completely change the layout of your kitchen if the current layout works for you. It might just need refreshing with new appliances and cabinetry without moving plumbing.

Talk through your ideas with Andy Sandford, Kitchen Design Expert at Brewers Decorator Centre, who will visit your space for free and start the first steps which will be enacted should you choose to purchase with Brewers.

“We have a free, non obligation design and pricing service,” explains Andy. “I will visit a client’s house after they have come into one of the East Anglia kitchen showrooms, and put together a bespoke design to suit them.”

Brewers uses Crown Imperial Kitchens, who are a trusted brand known for their varied and flexible kitchen styling. Whether modern or traditional, all Crown Imperial kitchens are manufactured to a high standard here in the UK.

Inspiration can be drawn from everywhere but it is ultimately a very personal choice when it comes to choosing traditional vs. contemporary, the colour of your cabinetry and the finish on your countertops. It’s good to have an idea of what you want before you go to a shop so you’re not easily swayed to make extravagant purchases. Create moodboards, bookmark designs you like and research your options online or by visiting a kitchen showroom.

Visit a Brewers kitchen showroom to see examples of some of the stunning Crown Imperial kitchens that Brewers provides. A trusted brand, Brewers works along side clients to put together a bespoke kitchen that’s perfectly thought out. Find showrooms in the Brewers stores in Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Frinton on Sea, Lowestoft and King’s Lynn.

The Brewers team will make use of the latest CAD software to truly allow customers to visualise their new kitchen. Andy explains: “We will take measurements and get ideas of layout and design before putting together a visual and sending that over to the client.”

Know your budget, this will be one of the first considerations before starting to plan your kitchen. At Brewers we can design kitchens of all sizes and shapes to make it work for you, whether you want something more affordable or top of the range. Pricing will come after the design meeting so you know how much your new kitchen will cost. 

Make sure to factor in builders, electricians, plumbers and other work into the budget for your new kitchen along with any installation fees.

Brewers provides kitchens within two to six weeks of planning in ready-to-install conditions.
