Benefits of Working with a Kitchen Designer
When building or remodeling a kitchen, you want to ensure proper flow, function, storage, organization, and of course style. With so many elements to consider, creating your dream kitchen can be overwhelming. While there are great online tools you can use to design a kitchen by yourself, you really want the assistance of a designer because a single mistake could turn into years of regret.
A kitchen designer will help make sure your kitchen is functional, safe and suits you and your family’s needs and style.
As the hub of the home, the kitchen needs to work for your needs. A designer will take measurements and match your needs against your special constraints. Is there room for an island with seating? Can I fit in a beverage bar? How can I maximize storage? Will we be able to knock down a wall to create an open space? These are all questions a kitchen designer will help you solve to create the optimal work center and traffic patterns.
A kitchen can be a dangerous place. Fire, cuts, and scalds can all happen within this space. Sound kitchen design considers these dangers. For example, a designer would not place a cooktop near a window and would be sure to include sufficient counterspace near ovens and microwaves.
Suitability and Style.
Kitchen design should not simply focus on what best fits where. A designer will carefully consider the room’s dimensions and spatial elements to determine the best place for each appliance, as well as the type and placement of cabinetry. Can you incorporate glass front cabinet doors for decorative pieces or is maximum storage of utmost importance? What type of countertop is the best option for your busy family? What hardware options best complement the faucet I want? A designer will help you with all these questions and more.
