How A Kitchen Designer Creates The Best Kitchen For You
When it comes to interior design, it’s all about finding harmony between all of the aspects that makes your home your home. To us, the kitchen is what serves as the heart of the house, the social hub for nourishment and bonding and growth. Sure, to some, it may be just a room, but it’s often one of the most heavily trafficked rooms in the whole house, and that counts for something.
There is a special process put in place by top-tier designers when it comes to creating a beautifully functional and aesthetic kitchen interior. In four phases, we can put together the right layout, look, and game plan for your kitchen design… and we help with the contracting for it, too.
The Four Phases To Kitchen Designing
Phase One: Determining The Layout
As possibly the hardest step in the process, the first thing to get completed is by deciding how you want the general layout to look. Where do the appliances go? Will you have an island, and if so, what size? Do you want overhead storage, open cabinets, shelving? There are many things to be decided here, which is why this step takes the longest time to complete.
Phase Two: Coordinating The Ideas
Once you’ve gotten a solid idea of how the kitchen will look mechanically, it’s time to create the dazzling aesthetic you’re aiming for. This part is all about materials, colors, patterns… you’re working with the style portion here. You want to coordinate your ideas for the decor with the way you want the kitchen to be laid out.
Phase Three: Getting A Contractor
Hiring contractors are tough, but an interior designer knows how to properly weigh the bids and choose the best one for the job. They can also monitor all of the different aspects of the creation of your kitchen, as well as confirm the quality of materials and work.
Phase Four: The Finishing Touches
Finally, things are coming together for your home! The kitchen is one room that needs a little bit more work to be finished, since it’s important that this room reflects the heart of your home. Some minor layout changes may be made, a couple of differences in design options to be decided on, and rearranging the furniture.
