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

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.

take measurements and get ideas of layout and design before putting together a
visual and sending that over to the client.”
