Designing a kitchen for a new or existing home is a big investment in time, money and energy and it is sometimes stressful and challenging. Unfortunately, some vendors and TV programs do not like to dwell on this aspect and therefore mislead the consumer regarding the actual amount of time and effort that is required. Even though creating a new kitchen is challenging, most clients say that the results are more than worth the effort. I hope that the information provided herein will be a helpful contribution toward having you well on your way to a successful project. Before you begin the process of designing your new kitchen, you will need to set the criteria for the design. I recommend that you engage a professional kitchen designer that not only designs the cabinet layout, but designs every element of the kitchen and is involved throughout the entire project, so that the final result will be a cohesive design that reflects optimum function and style. The designer will not only help you create a beautiful, efficient, kitchen but will save you significant time and money and you will both have fun developing your joint creation. I trust that what follows will get your energy flowing and thoughts racing, in preparation for actually embarking upon your journey. And, it "is" a journey!
Good kitchen design online means having a layout for your kitchen that provides an efficient and pleasant area in which to prepare meals and do related tasks. Understanding the kitchen work triangle concept and basic kitchen layout types is a valuable starting point to design a kitchen online that you like. The kitchen work triangle consists of the distance between the sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop. Each one of these areas becomes a focal point in the kitchen and forms the three points of a triangle with different distances between them. Done correctly, proper kitchen design online will give you the most efficient food preparation area layout in your kitchen.
It can be easy to envision how your new kitchen would be designed and how it could complement the interiors of your home. However, most kitchen designs available in the market today are pre-made, which means you have limited options such as in where you want to store your kitchen tools, pots and pans, utensils, etc. More often than not, regular kitchen designs are ready-made, so you need to adapt around their layout and design. Hence, many people choose bespoke kitchen designs because of the freedom to select the design details as well as setting the layout of the kitchen according to your preferences and needs.
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.
