Will you be using existing plumbing for sinks and appliances or will you require additional pipe work? If you’re planning to include a kitchen island containing a sink or other appliances in your design, you need to ensure that plumbing and electricity supplies are in place before flooring is laid. Work out where appliances, both big and small, are going to be to ensure that you have plug points where you need them.
If you intend to lay underfloor heating in your kitchen, be careful what you choose to lay over the top of it. While underfloor heating can be used with most modern flooring – stone and concrete warm up and retain heat well – some wooden floors, particularly extra-wide boards, certain veneers and some types of adhesive, can be heat sensitive.
