Asking your friends for recommendations is one way to find a kitchen designer, but asking designers’ clients might be more revealing. A design professional should be forthcoming about references, and following up on those references is an important part of choosing a designer. Make time to see previous projects and talk with previous clients. This will show you the designer’s style in final form, give you an idea of how the designer solved problems similar to yours and suggest potential problem areas. In addition to looking at finished kitchens, you can find out if a designer met deadlines, responded promptly to concerns or problems, kept the client informed of progress and worked well with other professionals.
Likewise, you might decide that a particular designer is not a good fit for your project. The ideal designer-client relationship is based on honesty, trust, communication, respect, and a sense of teamwork.
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.
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.
Be discerning about the alphabet soup of professional designations that designers list on their business cards and websites. ”People need to be careful of fakers and learn what the initials mean,” says Gary White, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Newport Beach, California. ”It’s pretty easy to pick up initials by buying a membership in some organization.”
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.
