Invest in good quality surfaces and they’ll elevate your cabinetry and last longer, too. Engineered stone, known as quartz, is the industry go-to as it is non-porous, durable and can be installed with invisible joins. Acrylic solid surfaces are popular too as they also give a seamless look and can be moulded to include hygienic streamlined sinks and draining grooves. Both materials are available in a huge choice of colours and designs, including marble, stone and concrete finishes.

Ensure you don’t scrimp on the items you touch and use the most such as taps. Well-designed brassware will give cabinetry a lift and last for years. There are many kinds available, including electronic hands-free sensor designs for improved hygiene, water-saving models, filtered-cold and instant-hot-water taps to help speed up your routine.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on a sink for it to tick the function and style boxes. Choose from budget-friendly stainless steel or ceramic versions, both of which will complement a contemporary scheme. Or, if you’re craving a butler-style sink for a country kitchen, check out local reclamation yards and auction websites for affordable used designs to suit your style.

Whether you’re a budding masterchef or an occasional cook, quality cookware is a must if you want it to stand the test of time. Most pans are used daily, so consider investing in a premium kit that will wash easily and won’t scratch and chip. Durable materials to look out for are aluminium, cast iron, copper and stainless steel. Just remember to check the design is compatible with your oven or hob.

‘A kitchen is a big investment, so it’s not worth making compromises,’ says Melissa Klink, Head of Design at Harvey Jones. ‘A handmade kitchen is much more durable than a mass-produced product and will offer longevity over the years, so my biggest tip is to invest in good quality cabinetry.’ If your budget is tight, check out a used kitchen company for a choice of quality ex-display or second-hand designs for less.

The perfect hob warms up quickly when you’re in a hurry, spreads heat evenly and is easy to clean. The latest gas and ceramic models are available in a variety of designs and at accessible price points, while induction appliances cost a fraction more but tend to be cheaper to run. Be sure to do your research and take advantage of the many great deals offered by well-known and trusted retailers.

The kitchen isn’t just the cooking hub, it’s the headquarters of family life where electrical devices and appliances compete for a power source. Make sure you plan plenty of conveniently located sockets to power up all the essentials from toasters to blenders, phones and tablets. Concealed plugs are a good choice if you prefer a minimalist look or need to free up a work surface in a more compact space.

Whether you’re opting for a Scandi or Shaker-style kitchen, keep your scheme on track by choosing small appliances that blend in with your décor. Choose from matching toasters and kettles in a myriad of styles and designs including monochrome, rose gold and retro pastel shades – the good news is they’re available at purse-friendly prices, too.

If you’re designing a clean, minimal look in your kitchen, it’s worth installing underfloor heating. This is easy to include if you’re planning on building an extension though both piped and electric versions can be retrofitted. As well as giving you that luxurious cosy feel underfoot, you’ll be able to ditch the radiators which will free up essential wall space for more units or even a dining table.

When it comes to pulling off a super-streamlined look in your hub, it’s worth spending extra on integrating some appliances. Concealing your dishwasher, washing machine and even your coffee maker will give your space an uncluttered feel, which is important in an open-plan room. Remember, you can’t take built-in appliances with you but if you put your house on the market, they’ll be a selling point to potential buyers.

If you’re looking for the ultimate storage solution, a larder is worth splashing out on. Make the most of the space available in your kitchen and consider a full-height double-door design with drawers and adjustable shelves to accommodate everything from oils and spice jars to cans and bottles. Larger larders can even conceal small appliances, freeing up space and decluttering essential work zones.
