Beware: If you prefer privacy when you cook, or at least a buffer zone against guests, an L-shaped kitchen may not suit those needs.
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.
The designer will want information from you, but you should seek information from the designer, too, including actual photos of his or her work — not brochures from manufacturers. ”If the designer can’t produce examples of his or her own work, leave,” White says.
Lawrence and Dick provide design-only services, creating working drawings with floor plans, specifications, elevations, and renderings that their clients can take to contractors and use to shop for cabinetry, appliances, and other design elements. Neither designer sells cabinetry or other products.
The kitchen demands a specialist, says Denise Dick, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Carrollton, Texas. ”Just like you go to a doctor specializing in a part of the body,” she says, ”the specialist for that part of the home is the kitchen designer. We understand how it all fits together and why the parts are necessary. You’re going to do it right the first time with a designer.”
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.”
