”We start with the as-built plan to take a look at how everything’s working and what’s not functioning very well,” says Black. The new design will address the shortcomings and patterns of use that she finds.
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.
When remodeling a kitchen, deciding on the right design layout is crucial. After all, the exact location of your various countertops and appliances will dictate just how smoothly you can cook, clean up, and chat with your guests while rinsing the arugula.
Ask to see a project similar to yours, including the plans, and find out how much it cost. You should also ask about payment schedules, contracts, timelines, and design services.
When choosing countertops and other finishes, Black likes to get a sense of the homeowner’s housekeeping inclinations, as well as how bothered they are by evidence of wear.
If you are new in town or are among the first of your friends to tackle major home renovations, finding a designer might be a challenge. The NKBA offers a locator service that can give you a clear picture of local resources. You can also contact the American Society of Interior Designers to find area professionals. DesignBuild4UChicago also notes that an increasing number of general building contractors and home renovation companies are hiring professional kitchen designers for their staff. Design services offered by a building company might be more affordable than those of independent, private design firms.
