But plenty more will dictate the best kitchen layout for your space. Here’s how to choose which one’s right for you, based on your space, tastes, and more.
For artificial lighting, Black personally avoids recessed cans, and has purchased products from Schoolhouse Electric and Rejuvenation. She prefers to install alternative styles such as surface mounts, sconces, and under-cabinet strips, aiming for ”focused lights in meaningful places.” Installing a dimmer switch ensures lights can be task-oriented, as well as atmospheric.
We always prefer daylight whenever possible,” says Black. When she’s organizing the layout, she ensures the kitchen takes advantage of natural light and exterior views. In one of her past kitchen designs, this meant floating shelves across a nearly six-foot window, so that the homeowner could get the incoming light, extra storage, and have easy access to dishes for plating meals.
On the other hand, if your intent is to create a family gathering space, room to comfortably hang out will take precedence over where to put your stove.
She cautions that despite industry claims, no material will look pristine forever. ”There’s no such thing as an indestructible material. Everything will show wear,” she says. ”Ask yourself, what do you want to feel and see everyday?” To that end, she likes Fireclay Tile and the wood countertops from Devos Custom Woodworking. Before deciding, always look at samples of the exact items under consideration.
On the dusty, messy journey called kitchen remodeling, there are advantages to having a professional designer as a guide. The pros can help you budget wisely, avoid mistakes, make the space beautiful and functional, and open doors to new and specialized resources.
