If you can, avoid rad­i­cally chang­ing the lay­out of your ex­ist­ing kitchen, as this usu­ally means mov­ing ser­vices and me­ters. By that, we mean the plumb­ing for your dish­washer, sink and wash­ing ma­chine, your gas sup­ply for your cooker or ad­di­tional elec­tri­cal sock­ets or ca­bles for ovens and ex­trac­tor hobs. Swap­ping like for like when it comes to unit po­si­tion­ing might also let you get away with keep­ing the ex­ist­ing floor­ing, too. A sim­ple gal­ley kitchen

(runs of units fac­ing each other) is of­ten the cheapest lay­out as there are no cor­ners to be fit­ted with clever units and doors, no mitred joins needed in work­top lengths and you might get away with buy­ing just two end pan­els. If you want to ring the changes, play around with wall units in­stead – go for a dif­fer­ent height or fin­ish than pre­vi­ously, or mix with open shelv­ing.
