Ali Haider November 11, 2019 Kitchen Design
“This is perfect for homes without enough room to allow for a decent-sized kitchen island and the necessary circulation around it,” explains Carib Daniel Martin, a residential architect near Washington, DC. “A peninsula provides stool space and an open feel in a more space-efficient layout.”
And if the height of the room permits, upper cabinets or open shelving can be designed to go to the ceiling and make the most of every last bit of space.
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.”
We always prefer daylight whenever possible,” says Black. When she’s organizing the layout, she ensures the kitchen takes advantage of natural light and exterior views. In one of her past kitchen designs, this meant floating shelves across a nearly six-foot window, so that the homeowner could get the incoming light, extra storage, and have easy access to dishes for plating meals.
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.
The sink and stove elements should be located so that they are protected from main walkways, if possible. ”It’s chaos. There’s fire. There’s water. You don’t want little hands in the hot zone,” Black says.
