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.
Be discerning about the alphabet soup of professional designations that designers list on their business cards and websites. ”People need to be careful of fakers and learn what the initials mean,” says Gary White, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Newport Beach, California. ”It’s pretty easy to pick up initials by buying a membership in some organization.”
Deeper vertical cabinets, sometimes fitted with slots, can accommodate more awkward shapes. Take an inventory of your kitchen equipment so you’ll know exactly what you need. Black taps Blum for their cabinet organization systems.
”Clients can go to all the kitchen showrooms and all the contractors and say, ’Here’s my kitchen design. What’s my price?’” Dick says. ”Then they’re shopping price, they’re not shopping design.”
Cabinetry should include both fully-extended drawers and vertical storage. Both have their purposes. ”Drawers are awesome for reaching to the back of the cabinet space,” she says, making them ideal for dishes, mixing bowls, and smaller saucepans. ”But then certain things don’t work very well in drawers, like baking sheets, cutting boards, and sometimes skillets,” says Black.
And if the height of the room permits, upper cabinets or open shelving can be designed to go to the ceiling and make the most of every last bit of space.
