Tom Howley’s top tips when planning your bespoke kitchen:
1. To create a truly sociable cooking environment add seating to an island or peninsular unit even if it’s just 2 or 3 seats to create an area that children and friends will gravitate towards when entering the kitchen, meaning that you can prepare a dinner for friends and catch up over a glass of wine.
2. Create multiple seating areas within the space – some on the island, dining table, even a small area for chairs or sofa. Creating different zones will make the space more flexible and will be somewhere you want to spend time in regardless of whether you are having breakfast at the coffee bar, sitting down for dinner at the table, watching TV or reading the weekend papers.
3. If your kitchen is near your garden, or has a nice view, make sure the furniture layout makes the best of this by orienting towards the view. Your sink doesn’t always have to be positioned looking out to the garden, consider locating your dining area with the best view in the kitchen. Creating an indoor outdoor living space will mean that dinner parties can extend outside into the garden, with all the essentials to hand in the kitchen.
4. When designing a kitchen with high storage demands our designers focus on the practical needs of the kitchen whilst also maintaining the high standard and stylish finish of a Tom Howley design, bespoke concealed cupboard storage that are both stylish and practical.
