As hard as you work in your kitchen, it’s important to have a kitchen that works hard for you in return. The only way to accomplish that is to design a kitchen which accurately reflects, and supports, your lifestyle. A huge, sleek, modern kitchen with the highest-end appliances is great … unless you hardly ever cook! A cozy kitchen with an eat-in breakfast nook is perfect … unless you entertain frequently, and use the kitchen as an extension of your entertaining space.
Design the kitchen that suits your current needs—with an eye toward the future—and you can’t go wrong. Our kitchen designers at Cabinets & Designs are a wonderful resource if you are looking at a kitchen remodel but don’t know where to start. Stop in or call today for a consultation! Before you meet with a designer, here are a few points to help you clarify your vision and get organized.
Your kitchen designer needs to understand your lifestyle in order to create a kitchen that will work for you. Some things that will help them learn about you and your needs:
• Do you have children? If so, how old are they? Do they help in the kitchen?
• How often do you entertain? Do you throw small, intimate gatherings or large events?
• How often do you cook, and what kind of cooking do you do the most? Families who cook frequently at home, or use sophisticated techniques/equipment have different needs than those who eat out a lot, or who stick with the basics.
What else happens in your kitchen, other than cooking? Think about your pantry, and your dishes/pots and pans. “I need more storage!” is something we hear from clients all the time. We can help you customize your kitchen, to maximize your storage space.
Another consideration is entertaining. If you have guests who love to watch, or participate in cooking, we also need to consider traffic flow and seating.
Do you or the kids study or do work in the kitchen? We can create a study space or office area to facilitate both cooking and working, without compromising either space.
