Create your Freedom kitchen in 5 easy steps
1. Plan your design
When designing your kitchen, it is important to carefully assess the available space to determine the layout that suits your needs. This is particularly important for creating accessible layouts and innovative designs that provide enhanced manoeuvrability and unique features.
- Take into account fixed elements like doors and windows.
- Consider the placement of your sink, hob, and appliances.
Identify the key elements you desire in your kitchen, such as ample work surface space, storage that is easily accessible, and a welcoming space for socialising with friends and family.
2. Make a wish list
A wish list is a good place to start your dream kitchen journey. It should contain useful details about your disability needs, family lifestyle and cooking habits, ready to discuss with our kitchen designer. Part of writing out your wish list is to make a list of appliances you would like built-in, such as coffee machines, microwaves, water coolers, wine racks and a fridge-freezer.
We’re firm believers in making a space your own. Existing accessories or heirloom statement pieces that you already own can transform your new kitchen into a more personal space.
3. Choose your kitchen style
Consider the style of cabinetry and handles, work surfaces, splashback and flooring to create your perfect Freedom look. We offer a wide range of styles, colours and finishes in Freedom, so there’s no need to compromise on style. Finishing touches such as lighting can also offer better visibility, boost mood and make your space more inviting. Don’t have a specific style in mind? We’ll help you choose the right features, textures and materials to match your vision and accessibility needs.

4. What features will you need?
When you’re planning your Freedom design, it’s important to consider the features you will need now and in the future:
- Do you require a mixture of worktop heights (including rise and fall worktops) for all the family to use, or would a fixed worktop with electric wall cabinets be more practical?
- Would you need features such as waterfall edge worktops to limit spillages and maximise workspace, or a combination of drawers and cabinets?
- Think about where you would like to position appliances such as ovens and hobs, and consider any extra electrical connection points for future-proofing.
Using a combination of finishes on tall and base cabinets and effective contrasts in colour can create a clean, modern style.
