Your kitchen isn’t just a functional space; it’s where culinary creativity happens, relationships are nurtured and time is spent in pleasant company. We asked a group of professional designers to share 4 of their favorite kitchen remodel tips:
1Think Outside the Kitchen
Consider the rooms or open spaces adjacent to the kitchen so that the final design solution is well integrated, especially if the original layout will be changed significantly. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, consider including an intimate seating area to enjoy the company of family and friends.
Roll-out shelves are significantly more convenient than fixed shelves, but nothing compares with drawers for easy access and efficiency.
Talk to your design pro about the wide assortment of available organizational accessories. Keep your kitchen better organized with lazy susans, cutlery trays, dual bin recycle/trash pullouts and more.
4Work with a Pro
There’s more to kitchen design than a working triangle. Look for a designer who specializes in kitchen planning. Hiring an experienced designer will assure a more valuable, satisfying outcome.
