5 Step Guide: How to Achieve your Dream Family Kitchen

The number of family kitchen diners has risen by over 50% in the last decade.  This suits today’s social activities within our homes including entertaining, working, and creating a space for families to come together to work and play.


When planning your new kitchen, it is really important to consider what you will be using your kitchen for.

You may need to consider things such as cooking, eating, working from home, children’s play or even space for the dog?

Structurally, have a think about external and internal walls, doors and windows.  Do you need to make any changes in this area to achieve your dream family kitchen?

Once you have listed these ideas, you can then really begin to plan your kitchen space.


The next step is to list down what you need, and when we say ‘need’ we mean those must have necessities that you cannot live without!

This may be a double oven so you have plenty of cooking space for any family gatherings or dinner parties, a dishwasher, or space for an integrated bin.


Now you have decided what you need, what do you really WANT in your new kitchen.  

You may have dreamt of having a kitchen island, or space for a snug so the children can relax after school whilst you cook?  Maybe you have always wanted a boiling hot water tap?  What ever it may be, add it to your list.


Todays family kitchen needs a kitchen table.  Whether it is for the children to do their homework, or for the family to sit down and share a meal together.  

Look at your space and see where you are able to fit a table, what style of table would you like? Or maybe your kitchen could encompass a kitchen island and seating area together?  

A good kitchen designer will be able to help you visualise your kitchen space and help you plan out the remaining space in your kitchen.

Once all of the major elements of your dream family kitchen are in, the fun can really start by adding some character to your kitchen space.  

It may be a chalk board to display your kitchen meals, a quirky family planner so everyone knows what is going on that week.  Or a bespoke art gallery for your little ones pieces of art.

Space is a really important factor when planning out your kitchen space, and so are the technicalities.
