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.
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.
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.
”They love designing kitchens, and they’re super educated about how to make the most of the space and about what’s safe,” says Angela Lawrence, a certified master kitchen and bath designer (CMKBD) and member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) in Aurora, Colorado.
”Avoid placing work spaces opposite each other so that two people can comfortably work together without getting in each other’s way or having to stand directly back to back,” she adds.
You probably have a dream kitchen already built in your head, but that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect fit for your space. That’s why, in the latest installment of our Dream Kitchen Remodeling Guide, we highlight the various kitchen design layouts you should consider, as well as their pros and cons.
