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.
What’s the phrase? No woman is an island; she just has one in her kitchen? Center islands continue to be one of the hottest kitchen design trends.
ou love to cook and spend hours in the kitchen, yet have a narrow space to do so, with windows, or even doors, situated on the short walls of the room. Don’t despair—there’s still a layout for you. It’s called a double-sided (aka galley) kitchen, in which work surfaces and storage space line both sides of your space.
Do your homework before the initial meeting with a designer. If the meeting is at the designer’s studio, bring a current floor plan of your kitchen. Browse showrooms to gather wish-list ideas for appliances, cabinet styles and finishes, and flooring options. Compile a portfolio of magazine photos that shows your style preferences.
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.”
”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.
