“Everything is moving towards a more open-plan style,” says Daniel Bertuccio of Eurolinx. The L-shape is ideal for this, as well as being one of the most modern kitchen designs and efficient layouts. Comprising two adjacent countertops, the style suits both small and medium kitchens. A big plus is that the L-shape easily supports the working triangle – the imaginary line between the sink, cooktop and fridge. However, be aware that applying this style in a large kitchen can mean your appliances are spread out too widely, disrupting the efficiency of the design.
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.
”They’re the biggest pieces,” she says. ”I don’t want that to be a surprise down the line.” Black recommends Bosch dishwashers and the 30” Big Chill Pro Stove.
“This is perfect for homes without enough room to allow for a decent-sized kitchen island and the necessary circulation around it,” explains Carib Daniel Martin, a residential architect near Washington, DC. “A peninsula provides stool space and an open feel in a more space-efficient layout.”
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.
If you are new in town or are among the first of your friends to tackle major home renovations, finding a designer might be a challenge. The NKBA offers a locator service that can give you a clear picture of local resources. You can also contact the American Society of Interior Designers to find area professionals. DesignBuild4UChicago also notes that an increasing number of general building contractors and home renovation companies are hiring professional kitchen designers for their staff. Design services offered by a building company might be more affordable than those of independent, private design firms.
