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.
Ensuring Efficient Energy Consumption. For any business-oriented kitchen design, energy efficiency should be a major consideration, because it is going to save you money on utility expenses. In an energy-efficient kitchen setup, your cooking equipment should be kept far apart as is feasible while still remaining convenient. For instance, your cooking equipment should be strategically positioned to optimize on the kitchen exhaust hood. Foodservice Consultants Society International, a global professional design and management consulting services organization estimates that energy savings from efficient kitchen equipment could be as much as 40%, which is nearly 3 to 6 per cent of your total kitchen operating costs.
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.
The Basics. If you are looking to renovate your kitchen, there are various considerations you should make before choosing a particular kitchen design. Firstly, determine the amount of area space you presently have. This is essential whether you are doing a kitchen design or making alternate renovations - the design chosen must be proportionate to the amount of space you have available. A second basic consideration to make is which functions you want your new kitchen to perform. For example, if you are looking for a kitchen design that allows for guests to congregate and have chats before the main meal, then you do not want to choose a design that is enclosed in a different room. Luckily, there are numerous options from which you can choose. Another aspect to take into consideration is the appliances you will be using in the kitchen, and this is greatly dependent on the number of people in your home. If you have a large family you will require a larger area space with more effective equipment and storage. Items, such as dishwashers and refrigerators, must be chosen with care as they can enhance your kitchen design. To do this you must properly plan your kitchen space and identify how much money you can comfortably spend.
