Go Beyond Beauty _ Once you hire a certified designer you can rest assured that your kitchen will go much beyond the looks. You have to balance both the aesthetic and the functional elements of the kitchen. These two things often come in conflict with each other and that is why only professionals can ensure that both the aspects harmonise in a unique way. Your designer will interview you to know the cooking habits you have, your sense of style, the number of cooks you allow and your storage habits. On the basis of that your kitchen will be designed to suit every need of yours.
Investing in Energy Efficient Equipment _ When you're acquiring new cooking equipment, think about the whole product life_cycle costs, which ideally should include the acquisition price, and the annual costs of energy plus any other long_term expenses linked with that particular equipment. In addition, make sure it meets the Australian Institute of Environmental Health recommended Food Premises and Equipment Standards.
