We are reopening our doors

Following strict government reopening guidelines, we have taken the decision to reopen our showroom to the public, effective as of Tuesday 19th May 2020. We are following the safety guidelines as set out by the government to ensure the safety of both our employees and customers. We invite you to visit our showroom to view our collections or discuss your requirements but we must stress, anyone displaying any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, or has knowingly been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms should not visit our showroom.

We have strict sanitation measures in place and will be adhering to social distancing at all times.

We took the decision to close our doors to the public in-line with recommendations from the Government during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We appreciate how hard it is to stay productive and optimistic during these unprecedented times. With any current or future plans on hold and a lot of uncertainty in the world. Here at Handsons Interiors, we want to help with keeping active minds active during this time and therefore we are lending a help in hand for those looking to renovate their kitchen after the lockdown is over.

Keep planning

There is no reason your dream kitchen has to go on hold completely. Use the time in isolation wisely and complete the planning stage of your build going to planning remotely. Even though our doors are closed our emails are still being picked up so we are on hand to bring those plans to fruition.

During the design phase, we are on hand to listen carefully to your requirements and ask you questions to understand exactly what you desire, which aspects are most important to you, and why. During this phase, we will work with you to take measurements of your project area and investigate the feasibility of your renovation project by identifying potential risks and constraints.

We can plan a great deal of your build through email and phone calls, we can even send estimated costs and will work with you to be in a position to hit the ground running with your project once the lockdown ends.

The design phase can take a while

Renovations can often spend months in the design phase. But while in isolation, how better could you be spending the time? Once we have an idea of what you are looking for, including measurements and any potential issues we will be able to offer our designs and renderings of what your future renovations. During this phase, we will develop concept drawings that allow us to provide you with an accurate project cost that takes engineering, structural, design, and aesthetic considerations into account.

Kitchens are the most used room in the home. They are the place where families can get together, eat, socialise and cook together. For many, the kitchen truly is the heart of the home and those lucky enough to have space it is often used as a relaxation place too.

The kitchen is a multifaceted area, used for cooking, cleaning and washing. Therefore, for many, being the place they spend the most time, it should also be the most practically designed and well-decorated room. People use their kitchen in different ways depending on the amount of space they have to play with and their individual lifestyle. However, there are a few basic guidelines that apply to any kitchen design and will provide the groundwork for designing the perfect kitchen.

Separation

Begin with separating your kitchen into different zones. Based on different activities, some examples of this include food preparation, cooking, washing, cleaning, working, doing laundry, relaxing. This process will allow you to work out the space needed for different items for example pots and pans or even where the fridge-freezer or dishwasher should be situated.  These should all be placed in a methodological space based on the activity.

Utility room

If like many, you do not have a separate utility room, you will need to factor in a washing area for your washing machine and tumble dryer. These are best placed together, or for a real space-saving tip; purchase a combined washer-dryer and integrate it into your kitchen cupboard for a neat appearance.

Layout

Choosing your layout usually comes down to space, but can also help with increasing space. A U-shaped kitchen is one of the most space-efficient designs and is perfect for small kitchens. While an L-shaped kitchen works well in open-plan kitchen design. If you’re a keen chef, a galley kitchen layout might be perfect for you. Combining two aisles next to each other creates a super-efficient working space.

Storage

Always ensure you have enough kitchen storage to meet your demands. There is nothing worse than cluttered workspaces. The ideal storage level should allow for a minimalistic looking kitchen space, with useable worktops and a cupboard for everything. Ideally, pots and pans which are easily accessible without having to remove other items first.

Once you have decided on all of these aspects, your dream kitchen shouldn’t be hard to be build and it will be the most optimised working space available, bespoke to your every need.

The key to a great looking kitchen has to be storage. Regardless of style or design, if your storage solutions aren’t working for you, your kitchen can look messy and cluttered. The age of the minimalist look is definitely here, so we took the time to explore the different options when it comes to getting your kitchen looking great and being organised!

DIY storage

If a new kitchen isn’t within the budget right now there are plenty of quick and easy options you can implement without breaking the bank. Pinterest is always a great source of inspiration when looking for organisation tips and clever hacks.

Plate Organisation

You can pick up a simple tiered plate rack from most supermarkets and homeware stores. This just help organise your dinner service and reduce the amount of space it takes up in your cupboard.

Under sink organisation

We’ve all been guilty of it at some point. In fact, many of us still harbour a messy, cluttered under-sink cupboard. Packed full of cleaning materials, bin bags and washing powder and a whole host of other unmentionables. The power of the basket – If you’ve been witness to the phenomenon of Marie Kondo, you’ll know that the queen of organisation loves using baskets to compartmentalise belongings to keep them in order.

Make use of cupboard doors

Believe it or not, there’s many a missed opportunity to utilise kitchen doors for storage. A simple rod across the inside of the door can act as a great holder for pan lids or spray bottles.

Built-in storage

Built-in storage is quite simply the easiest and most effective way to solve your storage woes. Modern kitchens have the most amazing solutions when it comes to keeping your kitchen organised.
From the smallest of additions like a fitted cutlery drawer with dividers to a purpose-built pantry, there are so many innovative space saving and organisational storage solutions available.

Utility Rooms

The ultimate in storage is the utility room. It allows your kitchen to be just that, a kitchen. All the washing facilities, cleaning materials and even boots and coats can be stored away, freeing up space in your kitchen for your food and utensils.
