Allocate budgets“Be very clear in your contractual agreement exactly how much is being allocated to every aspect of the project,” Katie advises. “Even if you haven’t yet chosen the worktop, for example, allocate a budget for it.“This not only keeps you focused on your total spend,” she says, “it also helps prevent you from using the money elsewhere – it’s spoken for.”Georgie agrees and says, “Once you’ve employed your design and build professional, the exact budget for your project needs to be agreed, in writing.“You should be given a full breakdown of costs relating to this budget, as well as a schedule of works, so you know how the project will be run and within what timeframe,” she says. “Once a contract is in place, the design and build professional has to deliver the project on budget and on time.”

This open plan kitchen - diner looks like it's straight from a catalogue! The large skylights in the roof of the extension bring in so much more light than the origional kitchen would have experienced with a small window facing into a dark side return area, and ultimately looking into the neighbours garden. The Crittal style doors are clever replicas which have an ageless quality without the hefty price tag of the Crittall brand. Little details like this lift the whole project to a timeless level, which won't age.
