But plenty more will dictate the best kitchen layout for your space. Here’s how to choose which one’s right for you, based on your space, tastes, and more.
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.
She recommends Fisher & Paykel models for their sleek looks and efficient sizing. With the fridge on the perimeter of the action, other family members can get snacks without intruding on the cook’s workspace.
Yet the key word is space. The minimum recommended size for an island is 40 square inches, plus a clearance zone of 31.5 inches. Don’t have the square footage to accommodate that? Choose a less supersized option.
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.
The designer, in turn, will want to know about your lifestyle: Who’s in the family? What’s your cooking style? Where do the kids do homework? Do you pay bills in the kitchen? Are there ergonomic considerations — height or accessibility needs? Do you have pets? Are the cooks right- or left-handed?
