She suggests that the sink, prep counter, and stove be grouped together, with an optimal run for the prep counter a minimum of 42 inches. ”I think you can get too far away, too,” she says, cautioning that eight feet of counter between sink and stove is probably too much.
Designers offer a range of services, giving you a chance to do as much of the work as you want — or no work at all.
”Avoid placing work spaces opposite each other so that two people can comfortably work together without getting in each other’s way or having to stand directly back to back,” she adds.
The designer, in turn, will want to know about your lifestyle: Who’s in the family? What’s your cooking style? Where do the kids do homework? Do you pay bills in the kitchen? Are there ergonomic considerations — height or accessibility needs? Do you have pets? Are the cooks right- or left-handed?
But plenty more will dictate the best kitchen layout for your space. Here’s how to choose which one’s right for you, based on your space, tastes, and more.
If the kitchen is the heart of your home, it’s no surprise that the prospect of a kitchen renovation can feel as daunting as major surgery. Few homeowners are knowledgeable about all the design elements that compose a well-functioning kitchen, and design mistakes can be costly. Adding a designer to the team of professionals can save time, money and worry when you’re tackling the complexities of creating your dream kitchen.
