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.
Black likes to make the dining rooms intimate and suggests oversizing the table. ”You don’t want the table swimming in a big room,” she says. Walkways and clearances around the table should be at least three feet wide.
”We start with the as-built plan to take a look at how everything’s working and what’s not functioning very well,” says Black. The new design will address the shortcomings and patterns of use that she finds.
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.
”The kitchen should have some tie-in so it doesn’t look like it was just dropped from the sky,” says Black. Neither does she believe the kitchen has to ”match.” If you’re drawn to a particular trend, think about why you like it and try to adapt the trend to the home’s existing style, rather than just copying it.
Hang pendant lights or a chandelier 30 to 34 inches from the tabletop to create cozy pools of light, and draw diners’ attention to what’s most important: good food and great company.
