Your kitchen will have more moving pieces of any other room in your home; thorough kitchen design planning will ensure a better outcome in its function and organization as well as its look.
When you first start thinking about designing or re-designing your kitchen, there are a lot of things to consider. You can begin by looking at online visual resources such as Houzz, Pinterest, and Instagram to gather a sense of what you like. There is so much out there to choose from, the exercise of gathering photos with kitchen design elements that appeal to you will help narrow down your style and priorities for your kitchen design.
You should consider what you use your kitchen for. The primary function of the space will make clear what you need to include in your kitchen design planning. From cooking family dinners to entertaining large groups of friends, what happens in the space will show you what you need. You may prioritize ample pantry storage and organized cupboard space, or you may wish for a big island and open flow to the main living area.
Kitchen design planning can also start outside your home with some window shopping. You may enjoy spending a day in appliance showrooms to see what is available. With all the home innovations out there, you may discover something that you didn’t even know existed.
Once you know what you would like to do with your kitchen, meet with a designer. A designer can help you to properly lay out all the components; cabinets, appliances, plumbing, electrical, venting, and finishes must all be taken into consideration. Kitchen dimensions can be a little tricky, so it will help you to have a professional see the space before they work on your design. Good kitchen design planning means: space planning, organization and function for a cohesive kitchen design that is perfect for you; all this planning ahead will also make for a smoother construction experience.
