Ep73 – Kitchen design trends for 2024

Jonny Orr of Daniel George Kitchens and Caroline O’Neill of Digg Mama chat about Caroline’s kitchen design journey including how she went about it and what steps she would recommend self-builders taking. The chat also focused on:

·        Main things to consider when designing a kitchen; common mistakes to avoid.

·        Best time to involve kitchen designers and do they do 3D renders?

·        How much do kitchens cost and where can you save money?

·        Downdraft extractors vs traditional hood, which is best?

·        Lighting tips including task lighting when using an in-hob extractor and whether to include lighting in all units.

·        Hardwearing materials and colours, how to make sure the kitchen won’t go out of fashion.

·        Not thinking of putting in an oven, is that a bad idea? If I plan to have a pantry, do I need less cupboards?

·        Design tips for islands and peninsulas (breakfast bars) in the kitchen layout.
