External kitchen wall i.e. outside tap/garden watering system/water feature
Ensure these are clearly marked on the plan for your plumber and discussed.
As with electric cables, water pipes and gas pipes all need to go under the floor. An existing solid floor i.e. concrete, may make the project more expensive. Discuss with your contractor in advance to find out what your options are and the cost implications.
2). Consider Dishwasher and Sink Placement
It;s a good idea to place the dishwasher to the left or right of the sink for the following reasons:
To connect the dishwasher plumbing to the drain and taps
To avoid dripping dirty water and grease on the floor when you rinse off plates
Avoid installing your dishwasher next to a wall. This will make it difficult to pack and unpack, as you will only be able to access it from one side. Placing the integrated bin to the other side of the sink works well.
3). Taps and Sinks - an easy way to add a touch of luxury to your design
Taps and sinks make stunning features and are worth investing in. The modern shaker kitchen can support a wide rage of taps and sinks from the traditional look, to the more contemporary, as shown in the gallery below:
If you are considering wall mounted taps, you'll need to alert your plumber to this very early into the project. These require a channel chipping out of the brick work prior to the plastering taking place.
