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.
”The kitchen should have some tie-in so it doesn’t look like it was just dropped from the sky,” says Black. Neither does she believe the kitchen has to ”match.” If you’re drawn to a particular trend, think about why you like it and try to adapt the trend to the home’s existing style, rather than just copying it.
”They love designing kitchens, and they’re super educated about how to make the most of the space and about what’s safe,” says Angela Lawrence, a certified master kitchen and bath designer (CMKBD) and member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) in Aurora, Colorado.
Deeper vertical cabinets, sometimes fitted with slots, can accommodate more awkward shapes. Take an inventory of your kitchen equipment so you’ll know exactly what you need. Black taps Blum for their cabinet organization systems.
Choose your designer as you would a doctor, Lawrence says. ”I like people to think metaphorically of the kitchen as the heart of the home,” she says. ”Is this designer someone who you would want to perform heart surgery on your home? That’s really true. A designer is responsible for tearing the guts out of the heart of your home. And if you feel comfortable enough, and trust a designer based on her knowledge, her creativity, and her needs, then that’s a good vibe.”
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.
