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.
It’s rare, but sometimes a designer might ”fire” a client if the working relationship sours. ”Everything must be in writing and signed, even down to which bathroom the installers are allowed to use,” Dick says.
Flexibility: Finally, if you’re remodeling an existing kitchen, ”don’t get hung up on the current locations of your fixtures and appliances,” says Martin. “In the overall budget of the project, the cost to relocate these items is minimal, but the impact on the new design can be transformational.”
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 believes the prep space should only be used for prep activities (such as cleaning food, chopping, and mixing ingredients), have easy access to trash, and won’t overlap with the dirty dish stockpile.
For complicated jobs such as kitchen renovations, many designers seek special training and professional credentials. A major source of certification is the trade-based National Kitchen and Bath Association. An NKBA-certified designer has studied construction, mechanical, electrical and plumbing technologies and safety and professional conduct standards. Another avenue of certification is the National Council for Interior Design Qualification, which tests for competency in building systems, building codes, construction standards, contract administration, design application, professional practices and project coordination. NCIDQ states that its testing is based strictly on public health, safety and welfare. Certification indicates a broad knowledge base that ranges from knowing where to put plumbing pipes to choosing the right size stove for your space. Checking a designer’s professional credentials is one way to further your choice of someone to oversee your renovation.
