Designers offer a range of services, giving you a chance to do as much of the work as you want — or no work at all.
That shouldn’t come as a shock. An island can ensure a strong and efficient work triangle if it contains your sink, cooking unit, or refrigerator. Plus, it can provide an extra surface for dining, doing homework, or making cocktails.
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.
“Identifying your kitchen’s function for you and the other members of your household is the key to creating a room that improves your home,” says Larson.
Some people might not use the cooktop as much as others, or need separate stations for activities like juicing, baking, or making espresso. ”All those things factor in towards what counters will need the most bandwidth,” Black says.
The kitchen demands a specialist, says Denise Dick, a CMKBD and NKBA member in Carrollton, Texas. ”Just like you go to a doctor specializing in a part of the body,” she says, ”the specialist for that part of the home is the kitchen designer. We understand how it all fits together and why the parts are necessary. You’re going to do it right the first time with a designer.”
