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.”
Appliances: ”Many remodeling guides suggest that choosing your kitchen layout and cabinetry should be completed before you choose your appliances, but this may not be the best option for everyone,” notes Jason Larson, founder and CEO of Lars Remodel and Design in the San Diego area.
Next, she drafts several sketches of very different layouts to see what the client responds to, such as a U-shape versus a galley versus an L-shape. Once the rough layout is pinned down, appliances are chosen, since their dimensions affect counter and cabinet measurements.
“If space permits, an island becomes an added benefit of storage and function,” says Vayo.
For instance, if your goal is to create a chef’s paradise, you may sacrifice seating space to make room for large and luxe range appliances.
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.
