What is the kitchen 'work triangle' and why is it important?
The kitchen “work triangle” is the kitchen area from the refrigerator to the main cooking area to the main sink.
When you connect the three it should form a triangle (unless you have a ‘one-wall’ kitchen). It’s important because at or immediately adjacent to the triangle’s points, all the key kitchen activities – food preparation, cooking and clean up – take place. The kitchen work triangle helps to ensure that your kitchen deign will be functional. It keeps cooking activities centered in one area, with all the necessities close at hand.
Can you manage the whole project from planning to completion?
Yes we can manage the entire design kitchen project for you – this includes taking care of scheduling any building works, plastering, all plumbing and electrical work, gas installation (Including boilers and heating), also tiling, flooring and decorating.
Obviously we will bring in trusted professionals or specialists from these trades that we have worked with on previous projects, but we can co-ordinate the works for you should you have your own kitchen installation team.
How much do your kitchens cost?
Designer Kitchens are similar to cars in that the cost depends on the wood type, door style, worktop finish, any number of options and accessories.
That is why we at Peter Bernard Designer Kitchens prefer to produce a design and supply you with an estimate based on that design kitchen.
