You have many choices out there to choose from, so what criteria do you choose to give you the best chance of choosing a good company to carryout the work in probably the most important room in you home. Today kitchens are designed to be functional but also decorative because unlike years ago where the kitchen was down in the basement or in the back somewhere, no today it is part of the dining are or the reception area as most new builds are prone to have open plan areas.

The criteria I advise people to check are:

  • How long has the kitchen company been around.
  • Who owns the kitchen company.
  • Can you visit the showrooms and see the kitchens being made.
  • Make sure that the company you use are not just those that deal in flat pack kitchens only.
  • Are they in the same county or country.
  • Are they quick to answer the phone.
  • Do they have a good online presence like a website.
  • Are they competent.

Kitchen companies like Leinster Woodcraft that have been around for a quarter of a century are well worth talkin to.

Considerations for Remodeling or Expanding Your Home    

If the needs of your family have changed or you bought a house constructed upon the requirements of the first owner, you can think about remodeling or expanding your home. If after looking at the pros and cons of changing your home you decide change is not cost-effective, consider the alternative of buying a different home more suited to your needs. Here is a brief discussion of planning how to improve your home beginning with a needs assessment.

In “Planning Your Addition,” Tony Gilligan recommends: “The first step in planning your addition is a family conference to catalog everybody’s thoughts about your home.” In your family conference, there will be a lot of suggestions. You can capture all ideas in one list. Then the family will work together to narrow down the list into the top priorities.

Tied in with this debate is how remodeling one of your existing rooms in the house could meet one or more of the new family needs and then how part of the new addition could replace the purpose of that old room.   



A builder or an architect can help you with estimating the costs of remodeling or expanding your home. The way your house sits on the property, the current building codes, and your budget are major factors that will impact what you can do to improve your property. Once your family has finalized a list of priorities, the builder can match options with your ideas and your budget. Tony raises the point of reconciling the family’s current wish list of priorities with how the family needs will change again. For example, if you have two teenagers that now want a recreation room added, consider if it will make sense to add a room that will only be used for a few years.   Another consideration is how one multi-functional space can accommodate different needs of your family. For example, perhaps a large room added on to the back of the house can serve as a library, a home office, a space for entertaining, and a guest bedroom (perhaps with a Murphy bed concealed in the wall). Designing multiple purposes for the addition will help you to maximize the square footage of the addition.

Today a totally different scene, everywhere you go throughout the Island of Ireland, the countryside is dotted with new homes, a great sign of our affluence over the last decade. Within the walls of these beautiful designed houses is the “heart” of the home, referred to as the kitchen.

Kitchen styles vary from areas of the world but in Ireland we tend to stick to the traditional kitchens like Oak, Maple, Walnut and of course ash kitchens are very popular nowadays. Leinster Woodcraft are very proud to have been chosen in many cases to supply these modern masterpiece kitchens of various designs, that can be seen in our showrooms.

The styles available are the single galley kitchen, the double galley kitchen, the L-shaped kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen and all of these combined with an island unit give the chef or cook a wonderful area to perform his or her duties.

You can buy cheap kitchens from many sources, and in some cases when you use these for a few years, the doors start sagging and the hinges come away from the main frame – you ask yourself why didn’t I get a good quality one in the first place. The cost difference is not so great, so get yourself a good quality custom in-frame kitchen at the outset and you won’t be disappointed. Leinster Woodcraft are renowned for their quality and value and have been around for nearly three decades.
