The more you know about something the better your results will be. Thats also true in kitchen design if youre doing a new kitchen or a kitchen remodel. Knowing the rules and kitchen guidelines of kitchen design will help you plan for your layout, appliances, lighting, sink placement and other decisions. It will also help you have educated discussions with your designer to get to the best results quickly.

As a homeowner, being familiar with the same principles your kitchen designer goes by is helpful in your planning. The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) publishes guidelines for the betterment of the industry and to prevent issues as you go through your kitchen project.
