Merideth Sheahan March 13, 2020 Kitchen Design
She pairs the refrigerator with the pantry for a food storage cluster. ”While the sink and range are obviously close together, the refrigerator is going to be a little bit further, usually because it’s such a big element and needs to be tucked away,” she says.
She recommends Fisher & Paykel models for their sleek looks and efficient sizing. With the fridge on the perimeter of the action, other family members can get snacks without intruding on the cook’s workspace.
When choosing countertops and other finishes, Black likes to get a sense of the homeowner’s housekeeping inclinations, as well as how bothered they are by evidence of wear.
Remember, the designer has a lot at stake in your project, too: Stories about bad experiences often travel faster than those of good experiences. Designers work hard to achieve the latter. Having a detailed contract from the start can eliminate or at least minimize disagreements. Contracts often include a mechanism for arbitration in client disputes. Designers also might carry liability insurance or, like White, include a ”due diligence” clause stating essentially that although the designer is there as a coach, you are responsible for the decisions you make.
Usage: Be honest about how you currently use your kitchen—and how you want to use your new space. Is it the heart of your home where your family often hangs out, or your solitary retreat? Are you all about dishes that take hours to prepare? Or are you more of a microwave chef?
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.
