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.
As stated above, you need a hella lot of space to pull off a workhorse kitchen island. A more realistic option for many people is what’s known as a peninsula-style kitchen. You still get an island (sort of). It’s just connected to a wall, which makes it a peninsula.
The designer, in turn, will want to know about your lifestyle: Who’s in the family? What’s your cooking style? Where do the kids do homework? Do you pay bills in the kitchen? Are there ergonomic considerations — height or accessibility needs? Do you have pets? Are the cooks right- or left-handed?
Style-wise, Black takes cues from the architecture of the existing house, so that the kitchen ”makes sense” with the whole. In a 1950 home that had several red brick walls, Black made sure the kitchen’s finish selections ”related” to the existing brick.
Petrie’s firm is full-service, handling projects from concept to completion. He creates the design, provides custom cabinetry, and employs carpenters and installation professionals.
“Everything is moving towards a more open-plan style,” says Daniel Bertuccio of Eurolinx. The L-shape is ideal for this, as well as being one of the most modern kitchen designs and efficient layouts. Comprising two adjacent countertops, the style suits both small and medium kitchens. A big plus is that the L-shape easily supports the working triangle – the imaginary line between the sink, cooktop and fridge. However, be aware that applying this style in a large kitchen can mean your appliances are spread out too widely, disrupting the efficiency of the design.
