Design your Kitchen with our Online Kitchen Planner!

Bring your next kitchen to life with an online Kitchen planner…

When planning your next kitchen, you’ll want to get all the details right before spending a dollar. Designing with an online kitchen planner gives you the ability to experiment with different layouts, footprints and see the visual changes as well as budget implications before committing to any final decisions.

The kitchen is the heart and soul of your home. It’s not just where you cook food but where people gather to socialise. Our kitchens reflect our lifestyles and we decorate them to represent who we are. Of course, any kitchen renovation is also a long-term investment, so it makes sense to get the design right from the start. That’s where the online Kitchen planner is so powerful…

What’s your style?

Any modern style, the design is all about mixing elements from texture, colour to structural features but visualising this on paper can still be difficult. Will your design be balanced? Will access and functionality still be strong or are we trying to squeeze too much in? While a collection of inspiring images will give you confidence it is always beneficial to see your own layout in a 3D view. If this is coupled with an online quotation, then we are highly likely to include everything (it’s easy to see if something is missing) and therefore we can produce a more realistic budget.

Scale and Proportion

Nothing is more important in kitchen design than scale and proportion. It can be difficult to fully gauge the scale and impact of large tower cabinets or deeper benchtops islands on the overall footprint. The proportion of other elements you wish to incorporate will also have an important effect on the overall design aesthetic.


Being able to draw this to scale and then rotate a 3D view from various angles will allow to ‘walk’ around the design and have the confidence you have nailed it.

Once you have a design saved with your online Kitchen planner it becomes simple to make small modifications and refine the layout until it’s just perfect!

Colour / Texture and a design Focal Point

Are you looking to give your kitchen a big shot of colour or just want to introduce a new shade to your scheme? Pperhaps you are going for a classic look or even a mix-n-match… you’ll want to make sure your final decision is perfect before you spend a dollar.

Colours try1Look for 3D renders or illustrations to give you peace of mind that your colour schemes work and look just right. The Semble 3D Kitchen Planner has been built for just that reason! Allowing you to play with colour, texture and design instantly from your own home.

In the kitchen, a focal point will add interest and anchor your design to the rest of the house. This could be a colourful appliance, a decorative range hood, an accent wall saturated with catchy wallpaper or a bold lighting fixture. Whatever focal point you choose, it should be strong enough to stand alone in the spotlight but versatile enough that it balances the rest of the design.
