Start your search for a designer online at the NKBA website (nkba.org), which can point you to designers in your area. Then visit the websites of the designers or contact them directly. Get names from friends and neighbors who have remodeled their kitchens. The phone book, home centers, kitchen showrooms, and real estate agents might also produce good leads. Some clients found Dick at a specialty grocery store’s cooking school, where she was doing design workshops.
What’s the phrase? No woman is an island; she just has one in her kitchen? Center islands continue to be one of the hottest kitchen design trends.
Asking your friends for recommendations is one way to find a kitchen designer, but asking designers’ clients might be more revealing. A design professional should be forthcoming about references, and following up on those references is an important part of choosing a designer. Make time to see previous projects and talk with previous clients. This will show you the designer’s style in final form, give you an idea of how the designer solved problems similar to yours and suggest potential problem areas. In addition to looking at finished kitchens, you can find out if a designer met deadlines, responded promptly to concerns or problems, kept the client informed of progress and worked well with other professionals.
You probably have a dream kitchen already built in your head, but that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect fit for your space. That’s why, in the latest installment of our Dream Kitchen Remodeling Guide, we highlight the various kitchen design layouts you should consider, as well as their pros and cons.
Talking about the scope of the project should include a candid discussion about budget. ”I call it a spending plan, because budget is sort of a scary-sounding word,” Lawrence says. ”Spending plan is much friendlier.”
The sink and stove elements should be located so that they are protected from main walkways, if possible. ”It’s chaos. There’s fire. There’s water. You don’t want little hands in the hot zone,” Black says.
