Sanchez’s firm provides design services, handles cabinetry purchases, and offers access to allied professionals such as contractors, builders, architects, and interior designers. ”As long as the design-hour fees are less than 10 percent of the entire project, they’re part of our service,” she says.
Deeper vertical cabinets, sometimes fitted with slots, can accommodate more awkward shapes. Take an inventory of your kitchen equipment so you’ll know exactly what you need. Black taps Blum for their cabinet organization systems.
Petrie’s firm is full-service, handling projects from concept to completion. He creates the design, provides custom cabinetry, and employs carpenters and installation professionals.
She cautions that despite industry claims, no material will look pristine forever. ”There’s no such thing as an indestructible material. Everything will show wear,” she says. ”Ask yourself, what do you want to feel and see everyday?” To that end, she likes Fireclay Tile and the wood countertops from Devos Custom Woodworking. Before deciding, always look at samples of the exact items under consideration.
Cabinetry should include both fully-extended drawers and vertical storage. Both have their purposes. ”Drawers are awesome for reaching to the back of the cabinet space,” she says, making them ideal for dishes, mixing bowls, and smaller saucepans. ”But then certain things don’t work very well in drawers, like baking sheets, cutting boards, and sometimes skillets,” says Black.
Before you choose a kitchen designer, make as many general design decisions as possible. Setting clear goals, even if you can’t envision them in final form, will improve communication with your designer, and designers’ responses to your goals may determine your final choice of the professional whom you hire. General goals can include more light, an eating area, deeper counter space, a separate sink for produce and flower arranging, a baking area and home office space. Making a list before you choose a designer helps you clarify how you want your kitchen to function once the work is completed and helps a designer create a responsive overall plan. Decisions like blue vs. brown tiles will come later, but a complete list is key to creating a master design plan.
