”If you’re not comfortable with a designer, there’s a reason,” says John Petrie, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. ”You can’t sugarcoat the process. We are going to come into your home and we are going to disrupt your lifestyle for the next so many weeks. If everybody is honest and comfortable, it minimizes problems.”
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.
You probably have a dream kitchen already built in your head, but that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect fit for your space. That’s why, in the latest installment of our Dream Kitchen Remodeling Guide, we highlight the various kitchen design layouts you should consider, as well as their pros and cons.
For starters: ”The size of the kitchen will largely determine the layout, since many kitchen functions require certain amounts of space around them to be the most efficient,” explains Nancy Vayo, senior interior design leader for Ikea North America.
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.
Beware: If you prefer privacy when you cook, or at least a buffer zone against guests, an L-shaped kitchen may not suit those needs.
