”I do like them to already have ideas of what they want,” Dick says. ”When I have to pull teeth, it’s harder.”
”The kitchen should have some tie-in so it doesn’t look like it was just dropped from the sky,” says Black. Neither does she believe the kitchen has to ”match.” If you’re drawn to a particular trend, think about why you like it and try to adapt the trend to the home’s existing style, rather than just copying it.
The designer will also want to know the scope of your project. Some might turn down less-challenging jobs. ”If you just need some drawers and doors in there, it’s very easy for a lot of people to spec that out,” says Pam Goldstein Sanchez, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Atlanta. ”When you have very specific taste, a bigger space, more complicated needs, handicap accessibility, or you want to keep kosher, that’s when you want someone like me.”
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.
Before you choose a kitchen designer, make as many general design decisions as possible. Setting clear goals, even if you can’t envision them in final form, will improve communication with your designer, and designers’ responses to your goals may determine your final choice of the professional whom you hire. General goals can include more light, an eating area, deeper counter space, a separate sink for produce and flower arranging, a baking area and home office space. Making a list before you choose a designer helps you clarify how you want your kitchen to function once the work is completed and helps a designer create a responsive overall plan. Decisions like blue vs. brown tiles will come later, but a complete list is key to creating a master design plan.
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.
