Designers offer a range of services, giving you a chance to do as much of the work as you want — or no work at all.
Not so with NKBA certifications, which are based on experience, education, client references, rigorous exams, and continuing education. CMKBDs have at least 17 years of kitchen design experience.

NKBA-certified designers know every aspect of kitchens, from mechanical systems to space planning and color.
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.

Basically a U-shape with an added peninsula, the G-shaped layout can be used in just about any size of kitchen. Best attached to an open-plan living area, this design allows for plenty of storage room, extra counter space and multiple cooks. Throw in some stools and you also have an ideal seating area when guests come to visit. Bear in mind that size does matter when it comes to the length of your bench — you don’t want your peninsula to be too long and thus make you feel trapped.
