“Identifying your kitchen’s function for you and the other members of your household is the key to creating a room that improves your home,” says Larson.
Start your search for a designer online at the NKBA website (nkba.org), which can point you to designers in your area. Then visit the websites of the designers or contact them directly. Get names from friends and neighbors who have remodeled their kitchens. The phone book, home centers, kitchen showrooms, and real estate agents might also produce good leads. Some clients found Dick at a specialty grocery store’s cooking school, where she was doing design workshops.
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.
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.
The designer will also want to know the scope of your project. Some might turn down less-challenging jobs. ”If you just need some drawers and doors in there, it’s very easy for a lot of people to spec that out,” says Pam Goldstein Sanchez, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Atlanta. ”When you have very specific taste, a bigger space, more complicated needs, handicap accessibility, or you want to keep kosher, that’s when you want someone like me.”
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.
