4 - Do designers sometimes play it too safe?

Do kitchen and bathroom designers sometimes play it too safe when it comes to the architecture of the space?

Is putting a farmhouse-style kitchen in a quaint cottage - or indeed an ultra-contemporary kitchen in a brand new apartment - the path of least resistance?

Is it a designer’s job to challenge these kind of conventions and produce the project that will come up with something that meets the client’s brief but also surprises them, in the best possible way, with something unexpected?

This all came out of a blog written by designer Keith Myers, from The Myers Touch in Winchester. In it he challenges this idea of ‘Safe Design’ and, put simply, asks whether or not your kitchen should match your house. 

So we sat down with Keith to find out more about what he feels ‘safe design’ is, and I roped in another great designer Graham Robinson from Halcyon Interiors based in Wigmore Street in London to get his perspective.
