Specify Unique Dimensions. Not all online kitchen design firms offer this service when you design your kitchen online, but some enable you to specify unique dimensions that vary from the standard sizes. This is very useful because it enables you fill in all your wall space without unsightly spaces. So you might want one cabinet a few inches wider or narrower to completely fill a wall either side of your cooker, for example. This service tends to be offered by firms that customize their furniture for their clients - generally found only with true craftsmen that hand-make their kitchen furniture to order. Once you have completed all of this, your order is constructed for you, finished to your specifications and delivered. The cabinets can be professionally installed for you or you can do this yourself. Online kitchen design is easy when carried out this way, and knowing how to do this should give you the confidence to design your kitchen online.
HOW & WHERE YOU WILL EAT. You may prefer to be able to eat in the kitchen by having an island with seating. The size of the island that the room will accommodate will determine how many persons you can seat. Seating at an island reduces the storage space available in the island, so the balance of the kitchen storage will need to absorb this loss. You can basically sit at three counter heights: chair height (29-30"), counter height (36") and bar height (42"). If you have an adjacent breakfast room, you may want to eat there in the interest of having more storage space in the island. If the room will accommodate it, you may like the idea of a built-in booth in the breakfast room or kitchen, in lieu of a typical table and chairs. Many clients like to have the option of eating in both the breakfast room and at the island in the kitchen. In some cases there is no breakfast room and the dining room serves as both breakfast room and dining room. In any case, you should give these and other possibilities careful consideration.
Select Your Base Kitchen Cabinets. First select your base cabinets. The choice will depend on the service you are using, but one high-quality furniture company that hand-makes custom furniture offers a variety of base units in widths from 9 to 60 inches wide, all by 24 inches deep and 34.5 inches high. Units offered include normal storage cabinets, 9 and 12 inch wide pull-out spice racks, waste units, drawer units, corner Lazy Susan, sink base and base for a dishwasher. There is also a 24 inch wide and 84 inch high pantry unit with seven shelves. You can mix and match all or any of these to fit the space available to you to the nearest nine inches. You can then select your upper cabinets.
