The fun part of getting a new kitchen remodel is picking out everything. So naturally it was people tend do first. However before sitting down to pick out all the fun stuff we recommend you take some time to space plan with your kitchen designer.
While kitchen style, cabinets, and cabinet finish are important you will want to make sure you dont overlook the function. Everyones lifestyle varies and how they do things in the home. Even though you might have a similar kitchen layout your cabinet interiors, placement of appliances, and organization of work zones may need to be different. A good kitchen designer will not only give you a beautiful kitchen, but also with your help customize and design a kitchen that fits your lifestyle and needs of your household. We recommend you answer the following questions with your designer to help you better space plan and plan your kitchen workflow.
Questions to Answer About Kitchen Workflow
- Will your kitchen be open or closed to other rooms in the house?
- Will there be more than one cook in the kitchen at the same time?
- Do you want your kitchen to be used to help you entertain and socialize?
- Where is the best placement for your sink? Do you want your sink to be facing away or towards the action? Or do you preview it to be by a window or with a view of an outdoor living area? Will you have more than one sink?
- How will you enter and exit the kitchen? How many entrance points will you have or would like to have? It is recommended that you have no more than 3-3 or you will lose valuable cabinet and countertop space.
- How much countertop space do you need?
- What appliances do you plan on including in your kitchen? Do you have any appliances that will require a special cabinet?
- Will you have an island or a peninsula?
