Top Tips For Planning Your Kitchen

  • Moe Saadeh / KITCHENS / 13th July 2016

The key to ensuring that your future kitchen is fully mapped out is to make sure that all contingencies are accounted for and that all specifications are met and matched. In this initial planning stage, it is important to consider a few key points:

Complete Refitting and Refurnishing vs. Surface Facelifts

An important question to ask yourself is “Do I want a complete kitchen overhaul, or do I just want to re-skin certain furnishings and give things a polished, surface update?”

A number of factors will come into play with your decisions here. A kitchen renovation is about more than simply changing your cabinet’s colour – at ESI Kitchens, we can overhaul the entire layout of your kitchen and create new cabinets and cupboards that are tailored to and maximise the utilisation of your existing space. In this sense, our renovations are as much a functional update as an aesthetic one. If you want a new kitchen that is usable, efficient and tailored to your needs, you need more than a simple surface solution.

At ESI Kitchens, we offer 3D modelling software, so you can see if a complete renovation will suit you and your preferences before it even begins.


At ESI Kitchens, we have a wide range of materials we can use in the construction of your cabinets, benchtops, and other kitchen fittings. They come in a range of colours, textures – and with countless other options to consider, including ‘what door handles best suit my cabinets?’ or ‘do I want a splashback for my stove?’, your future kitchen is totally customisable. We make all custom fittings ourselves, so you’re able to have a say in what we use and how we use it. At ESI Kitchens, we’re committed to ensuring your designer kitchen is truly tailored to you.


At ESI Kitchens, our truly customisable range of products, materials, and fittings mean that your kitchen can be made to fit any design style. You’re able to choose between modern kitchen styles, with minimalist surfaces and low-impact cabinets, or more traditional styles, with brass handles, small detailing, and vibrant colour usage.

When you’re making this decision, consider the rest of your home – do you want your kitchen to sit seamlessly within the existing interior design, or do you want it to stand out as a focal point for your house? At ESI Kitchens, we’ll discuss your choices with you, and use our state-of-the-art 3D modelling to mock up a range of virtual kitchens for you to choose from.
