When planning your fitted kitchen, whether you are dreaming of the perfect family kitchen or a stunning contemporary entertaining space, we are here to help you to realise these dreams.  

Aristocraft Kitchens’ experienced, award winning designers have designed and fitted some of the most beautiful bespoke and fitted kitchens, from classic to contemporary there is something for everyone.

When helping you to design your kitchen there are five things that need to be considered:

1. Budget – this is really important so that we can design the perfect kitchen that fits the budget you have in mind and has the ultimate wow factor!

2. Layout – think about how you move around your current kitchen and what works well for you and not so well. Your kitchen designer will need to look at your existing space so that they can create a kitchen that optimises your space and is practical too.

3. Storage needs – are you a master baker with lots of baking equipment? Are you a wine connoisseur who enjoys those special vintage reds? Perhaps you delight in having your cookbooks out on display? There are a wide range of cupboard door sizes, shapes and colours, worktop materials as well as appliances to choose from, to ensure the perfect fit.

4. Using your kitchen – the way you use and explore your kitchen space will help to create a design that works seamlessly for you. Do you do lots of entertaining of guests, cater for the demands of a busy hungry family or enjoy spending time cooking and baking?  We also consider the needs of your pets too… is your dog a posh pooch that’s in need of a space for a luxury dog bed in your kitchen?

5. Designs that you like - Our showrooms in Merry Hill, Solihull or Sutton are a great place to start, where you can see an extensive setup of fitted kitchens. Looking at designs online or in magazines will also give you some inspiration and help to put together a brief for your kitchen designer to work with. Other considerations in your design will be the type and colour of flooring, the type of oven you would prefer such as a separate oven and hob or an Aga.

It doesn’t just stop at the design, our team will deliver a finished fitted kitchen for you – so all you need to worry about is what’s on the menu for dinner! Our aim is to make the experience of having a new kitchen to be a wonderful one, which is why we offer the complete service from designing to fitting and creating a perfectly finished room.
