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.”
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.
When remodeling a kitchen, deciding on the right design layout is crucial. After all, the exact location of your various countertops and appliances will dictate just how smoothly you can cook, clean up, and chat with your guests while rinsing the arugula.
Since the 1940s, the idea of the kitchen triangle has dominated. The sink, stove, and refrigerator each make up a point of the triangle and should be within a certain distance to one another for efficiency. Instead of a strict triangle, Black thinks in terms of clustering related activities.
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.
“This solution is most suitable for narrow spaces and small households, where only one, or a maximum of two, people work in the kitchen at a time,” says Vayo. “With all appliances and cabinets against one wall, the work triangle is reduced to a straight line.”
