There are multiple benefits of having a fitted kitchen. Fitted kitchens revamp a home with style and sophistication by replacing an older, free-standing kitchen with a more contemporary one. Fitted kitchens can also help to make the chef of the household’s job significantly easier.
Take a look at the wide variety of benefits that modern fitted kitchens offer:
The very essence of a fitted kitchen is that it utilises space efficiently. Essential kitchen items such as dishwashers, the kitchen bin, shelves and refrigerators sit neatly beneath worktops, as fitted kitchens are designed with space and openness in mind.
Whilst free-standing kitchens are beset with difficult corners, impractical worktops and inefficient shelving, fitted kitchens create optimum space in a kitchen, both for storage and cooking.
Adds value to your home
When asked to provide some tips about what adds value to a property, Buy Association advises sellers that adding a fitted kitchen is likely to add value to their home. Providing that the kitchen is well-fitted and has a timeless, universal appeal, the leading property advice organisation suggests that alongside adding double glazing and installing central heating, replacing an older, free-standing kitchen with a modern, fitted one, will add appeal and value to your home.
Promotes convenience and ease
Modern fitted kitchens are designed with convenience in mind. For example, in most standard fitted kitchens you will find that shelves are positioned conveniently close to the oven or cooker hood so that home owners can place pots and pans within easy reach of the hob. Shelving for plates such as plate racks arefitted close to the dishwasher so that they can be put away conveniently and quickly. Drawers for cutlery are located conveniently underneath a worktop to ensure that the cook can reach their desired utensil with ease.
Contemporary fitted kitchen designers recognise the demand for a kitchen that makes our lives easier, from the preparation of food, to eating our meals and washing up.
Brings elegance and style to a home
From granite worktops or stainless steel to a kitchen made solely out of wood, with so many styles and designs of fitted kitchens available the process of finding one that will suit your individual taste will not be difficult. Modern fitted kitchens ooze style, elegance and sophistication. They can reflect and enhance the personality of your home and revamp one of the most regularly frequented rooms in your house.
Easier to clean
With one smooth work surface conveniently covering various appliances, cupboards and shelving, fitted kitchens are often easier to clean than non-fitted kitchens, which have a multitude of awkward nooks and crannies filling up with dust and grease.
Fitted kitchens are also usually made from a high gloss material with a sophisticated satin finish, meaning that they are easier to clean than the non-gloss worktops many older free-standing kitchens are made from.
Modern, designer kitchens will also usually consist of a built-in electric fan oven, which helps to keep the kitchen free from odour and grease.
Whatever the reasons are that you decide to have a fitted kitchen installed, we can safely say that it will provide a welcoming, convenient and stylish addition to your home.
