Real place of life, this one must be in adequacy with the style of your decoration while being ergonomic and practical. To help you in your project, the cooks are at your disposal; but how to choose the right one from the wide range available to you today?
Developing your kitchen is a large project that can be expensive. It is thus necessary to define beforehand the budget which one wishes to allocate to him. You will also have to meet several cooks to establish quotes and know who you want to entrust the realization of the latter. Concretely, there are many types of cooks. Some sell only kitchen furniture and take care of their delivery and installation when others accompany you in the design of the plans and the overall construction. It is thus necessary to know well one’s needs in order to turn to the right person.
We can distinguish 3 types of cooks according to your budget and your needs:
The kitchen kit for small budgets:
Many general retailers are now present in the kitchen market, so some of them have created low-cost solutions. Castorama, IKEA, Leroy Merlin, Lapeyre and SoCoo’c offer kitchens in kits, designed to adapt to different spaces. The choice of models is very wide and it will be necessary to design the combination and arrangement of equipment between them. These big brands have developed software that makes it easier for you to test and visualize your kitchen creation from the elements proposed. Regarding the installation, a home service is offered. If you feel the soul of a handyman, you can also put your own kitchen but it will be necessary to know you, especially for the water and electricity connections. These signs often offer a wide range of appliances that you can add, depending on your needs and your desire to keep yours or not!
The kitchen specialists:
They are the ones we usually call “cooks” because they are the heart of their job. Brands such as Cuisinella, Ixina, Mobalpa or Arthur Bonnet will offer you a complete service. We advise you to visit these signs if you have few ideas on your future kitchen and little notions of crafts and layout. Indeed, these professionals are at your service to think of everything. They will guide you both in terms of design and equipment and can advise you at best. From the plans of your current kitchen or your room, they will be able to offer you a kitchen in adequacy with your desires but also with what is really realizable! They accompany you from A to Z and know how to surround themselves with suppliers and trusted craftsmen with whom they are used to working. Here you can also choose a kitchen naked or fully equipped according to your needs!
The high end:
Beyond the specialized cooks who will meet your needs from catalogs and kitchens already preconceived, there are high-end cooks where the offer will be fully customized. Special requests, tailor-made projects, special materials, ultra-sharp finishes or latest innovations, these cooks offer you the best on the market. Actors such as Xaviez, Armony or Veneta now offer this type of quality service.
As you can see, the multiplication of players in the French kitchen market can meet all budgets but can also create a cacophony in the kitchen design project. Today, depending on the project and the cook chosen, the bill can vary between 1000 € and 20000 €! To help you determine your needs, here’s a list of questions to answer before you start:

Will I be cooking my own food or using professionals?
Will I keep my appliances?
What equipment do I want in my kitchen?
Does the layout of my room require tailor-made arrangements?
