Choosing a kitchen design company is the most influential decision you will make in the process of having your new bespoke kitchen designed and installed.
Whilst their primary goal should be to bring your vision to life, it should be done in a way that ensures the kitchen is still a functional space that’s as practical as it is beautiful.
Redesigning your kitchen is a big investment so it must be done right, poor design choices can leave you with a space that’s not true to your vision. Furthermore, they can also be dangerous should they result in architectural or constructional defects.
If you’re in the early stages of having a new kitchen designed in your home, here are 6 things to look for in a kitchen designer.
1. Well Established
Going with a designer that’s well established reassures you that they know what they are doing and have been successful enough to keep at it. A well established company should have a good track record and plenty of examples of their work available to prospective clients.
That’s not to say you should write off new kitchen designers or kitchen design companies, we all started somewhere after all; you may just need to carry out further due diligence in these cases.
At Bath Kitchen Company, we’ve been designing and installing bespoke kitchens in a range of different styles for over 30 years.
2. Creativity & Technical Knowledge
Creativity and technical knowledge are two things that should be abundant in an experienced kitchen designer. The creativity to design a space that’s exactly how you imagined it, with the skills and expertise to bring it all together using high quality materials and appliances.
At Bath Kitchen Company, we pride ourselves in offering a service that results in a kitchen that meets and exceeds your aesthetic and practical desires, using only the highest quality materials and leading appliances to create spaces that last a lifetime.

3. Testimonials & Reviews
Endorsements from previous clients are one of the most effective ways of gauging the level of service that your prospective kitchen design company offers.
As well as reviews available on the company website, you may also look on industry platforms such as Houzz to see how the company interacts with potential customers, or perform a search on the internet to see other mentions of the business online.
