Lawrence and Dick provide design-only services, creating working drawings with floor plans, specifications, elevations, and renderings that their clients can take to contractors and use to shop for cabinetry, appliances, and other design elements. Neither designer sells cabinetry or other products.
Some people might not use the cooktop as much as others, or need separate stations for activities like juicing, baking, or making espresso. ”All those things factor in towards what counters will need the most bandwidth,” Black says.
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.
She pairs the refrigerator with the pantry for a food storage cluster. ”While the sink and range are obviously close together, the refrigerator is going to be a little bit further, usually because it’s such a big element and needs to be tucked away,” she says.
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. Certified kitchen designers (CKDs) and certified bath designers (CBDs) have at least seven years. NKBA-certified designers know every aspect of kitchens, from mechanical systems to space planning and color.
Next, she drafts several sketches of very different layouts to see what the client responds to, such as a U-shape versus a galley versus an L-shape. Once the rough layout is pinned down, appliances are chosen, since their dimensions affect counter and cabinet measurements.
