To maximize your storage capacity in this streamlined design, invest in a wall-mounted rail system where you can hang pots, knives, and other items you want to keep within reach, Vayo suggests.
“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.”
“If space permits, an island becomes an added benefit of storage and function,” says Vayo.
The kitchen demands a specialist, says Denise Dick, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Carrollton, Texas. ”Just like you go to a doctor specializing in a part of the body,” she says, ”the specialist for that part of the home is the kitchen designer. We understand how it all fits together and why the parts are necessary. You’re going to do it right the first time with a designer.”
It’s rare, but sometimes a designer might ”fire” a client if the working relationship sours. ”Everything must be in writing and signed, even down to which bathroom the installers are allowed to use,” Dick says.
For starters: ”The size of the kitchen will largely determine the layout, since many kitchen functions require certain amounts of space around them to be the most efficient,” explains Nancy Vayo, senior interior design leader for Ikea North America.
