“The L-shaped kitchen layout works best for those who are wanting to merge their dining table with their kitchen area,” says Martin. “You can use this to create a separate eat-in kitchen or as a part of an open living area.”
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.
Some people might not use the cooktop as much as others, or need separate stations for activities like juicing, baking, or making espresso. ”All those things factor in towards what counters will need the most bandwidth,” Black says.
Do your homework before the initial meeting with a designer. If the meeting is at the designer’s studio, bring a current floor plan of your kitchen. Browse showrooms to gather wish-list ideas for appliances, cabinet styles and finishes, and flooring options. Compile a portfolio of magazine photos that shows your style preferences.
For instance, if your goal is to create a chef’s paradise, you may sacrifice seating space to make room for large and luxe range appliances.
”I do like them to already have ideas of what they want,” Dick says. ”When I have to pull teeth, it’s harder.”
