”If you’re not comfortable with a designer, there’s a reason,” says John Petrie, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. ”You can’t sugarcoat the process. We are going to come into your home and we are going to disrupt your lifestyle for the next so many weeks. If everybody is honest and comfortable, it minimizes problems.”
“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.”
Ask to see a project similar to yours, including the plans, and find out how much it cost. You should also ask about payment schedules, contracts, timelines, and design services.
Black likes to make the dining rooms intimate and suggests oversizing the table. ”You don’t want the table swimming in a big room,” she says. Walkways and clearances around the table should be at least three feet wide.
”We start with the as-built plan to take a look at how everything’s working and what’s not functioning very well,” says Black. The new design will address the shortcomings and patterns of use that she finds.
During layout planning, Black wants to know how her clients cook. ”What are you doing in here? How do you work? What’s your morning routine?” Black asks.
