With almost everyone owning a laptop or a tablet, it has never been easier to design a kitchen or bathroom for your home. In this piece we will discuss all the things you need to consider when planning a kitchen / bathroom installation in Peterborough. From deciding on the specifications you want, to designing and having the kitchen or bathroom fitted, there is a lot to consider when thinking of installing your kitchen or bathroom.

In the past people used to have a consultation with a salesperson to have their kitchen or bathroom fitted, often with the side effect of the salesperson putting them under a lot of pressure to have more than they could afford, and to agree to it at the end of the meeting. Now there are a number of computer programmes and apps available for you to consider all the furniture for your kitchen and bathroom, without any undue pressure to decide or act. In this way you get what you want, and not help a salesperson pay for their holiday in the sun in the process!

Another aspect of being able to design your own bathroom or kitchen is that you can consider getting a builder who can offer competitive rates for the installation, and keep costs within budget. Get in touch with our team and we will happily discuss your requirements We can work at a radius of 50 miles from Peterborough.

The process of designing and fitting your kitchen / bathroom

There are four things to consider in taking your bathroom or kitchen from idea to reality. Let’s look at each one in detail:

1. Budget

The first thing you need to consider in designing and fitting a bathroom or kitchen is your budget. You can get the fittings for a basic bathroom, including toilet, bath and sink for as little as £240. For a kitchen you will need around £1000 for a new suite, including oven, hob, sink and cabinets. From these baseline prices it really is a case of how much do you want to spend? It is possible to spend over £1000 on a kitchen or bathroom sink! Once you have worked out your budget you need to design the fittings and fixtures around that.

2. Design
Fitted Kitchen (classic style)

Classic style kitchen with granite worktops and slate tiled flooring. Modern designs also accomodated.

There are two ways to go about designing your kitchen or bathroom. You can ask an interior designer or specialist kitchen / bathroom company to show you what is available and for them to design a bespoke room around your requirements. There may be some pressure for you to make decisions quickly, and to have the room fitted through their recommended partner businesses. This traditional route can however get you exactly what you need and the latest technology for that room.

Have you considered design software or apps to do it instead? Swedish home furnishings company Ikea was one of the first companies to develop an app for their customers to design their own bathrooms or kitchens, but others such as Homebase and Magnet have developed their own since. You can also consider free software such as Easy Planner 3D or Home Planner 3D (available on iTunes) to develop your kitchen or bathroom at home without a salesperson breathing down your neck! This software allows you to take your time and research what you want before coming to us to discuss your exact requirements.

Here are some design points to consider in the kitchen:
  • Do you do your food preparation by the sink or hob?
  • How much storage do you need in the kitchen? How many people use it and how often do you shop?
  • Do you entertain a lot? This could increase the space you need, and perhaps dictate the need for a kitchen table.
  • What gadgets do you have? Do you want them to be built in?
  • Do you want to hide your fridge / dishwasher / sink? There are ways to do this.
Here are some design points to consider for your bathroom
  • Do you prefer a shower or bath? A separate shower or getting rid of the bath altogether could be the answer.
  • Do you and your partner like to use the bathroom together? Consider two sinks?
  • Have you considered a wet room as opposed to a shower?
  • Do you want tiling from floor to ceiling?
3. Prior to fitting

If you are installing the bathroom or kitchen into a new extension or want to completely change the layout of the room, you will need to consider the locations of essential fittings or appliances at an early stage. For example, a plumber will need to know the location of the toilet or shower at an early stage, where the gas fitter will need an idea where any gas cooker is to be fitted should you be using a gas cooker.

4. Fitting

After you have worked out what you want you should get in touch with us to discuss your requirements for fitting it. We can get good prices from local suppliers for the furniture and fittings, and can often help you get a good saving on the comparable list price should you buy the fixtures and fittings yourself at retail prices. We will give you a quote for fitting the bathroom, or if you are dead set on the exact fittings you have seen from other suppliers will fit those.

When can the bathroom or kitchen be fitted?

If you are renovating your home, our kitchen / bathroom installers can usually come in as soon as the electrics, plumbing and plastering is done. With an extension or newbuild we will be part of the ‘second fix’ phase of the process – when the plumbing and electrics have been fitted after the building is weather tight.

How long will it take to have the kitchen / bathroom fitted? 

If you are replacing an old one, a kitchen can take around a week to fit from ripping out the old one to fully fitting the new one.

If you are fitting a downstairs toilet it can take about a week to fit.

If you are replacing a bathroom it can take up to 10 days to include plastering and plumbing in the new suite.

These are just a general idea, and depend on what your exact requirements are. If you want a top spec kitchen with no expense spared it can take considerably longer, while if you are replacing a bathroom like for like the process will be a lot quicker.

Building regulations

When planning a kitchen or bathroom it is important to understand that there are legal requirements and potentially planning regulations that you must meet in fitting them. This section will consider some of the rules that you need to meet in order for our company to fit the kitchen or bathroom.

  • Ventilation

There must be a cooker hood over any hob or cooker that is installed in your home.

There has to be an extractor fan in any bathroom as well.

  • Fire safety

There must be a smoke alarm fitted in every room of the house.

  • Water

Wherever food is being prepared, UK building regulations demand that there is a sink to wash your hands and preparation utensils.

Another issue is that there must also be hand washing facilities in any bathroom, including a downstairs toilet.

All water supplies where someone is likely to use for drinking must be fresh water that is safe to drink. If you are using a ‘grey water system’ then you should make fresh drinking water available from sinks in the bathroom and kitchen.

  • Gas safety

Ensure that any person fitting a gas appliance is CORGI registered. All of our gas fitters meet this requirements.
