What expertise should you expect from a kitchen designer?

A kitchen designer is a designer who specializes in using cabinets like pieces of a puzzle to create a functional layout to fit the constraints of your space A kitchen designer is often well versed in appliances, countertops, plumbing fixtures, flooring, backsplash materials, lighting, hardware and basic installation concepts.

What makes a kitchen layout functional?

A functional kitchen layout should cater to the needs of the homeowner, while still incorporating as many of the follow elements

  • Proper flow from one work center to the next (work triangle)
  • Work aisle and walkway clearance
  • Adequate storage for items such as pots and pans, trash receptacle, utensils, dishtowels
  • Clearance for appliance door or drawer openings, and cabinets around them
  • Proper ventilation placement and avoids any potential fire hazards

What design elements are most important for a small kitchen space?

A small kitchen space works best with smaller scale appliances, to allow room between work centers and leave room for functional cabinet storage. A small kitchen space needs to take every available inch into consideration, taking advantage of the ceiling height by using taller wall cabinets or using an increased depth wall cabinet.

What design elements are most important for a small kitchen space?

1. Obtain floorplan measurements of your space, including the location of windows, doors and appliances, as well as appliance size. If you’re using an architectural print, it is important to have interior measurements easily legible on the print.

2. If your project is a remodel, take pictures of the existing kitchen. Include any items that may need special consideration in the design such as: floor vents, soffits, and structural items that cannot be relocated.

3. 1-2 inspiration pictures to show the style or look you would like to mimic in your space. (Need inspiration? – check out our gallery).

4. Make specific notes on items you do or don’t want in your design. Maybe you prefer drawers over rollout trays for pots and pans, or you want to avoid a blind corner cabinet.
