When Designing Your Dream Kitchen
Use These Techniques to Optimize Your Cabinetry Design, Even if You Don't Know Where to Start!
#4 Waiting to pick Appliances.
Of course, appliances are a huge part of the functionality of your kitchen. Don’t wait to pick them! Your kitchen needs to be designed around the appliances you want and the appliances you need to best achieve your most usable space. It is always a good idea to speak to an appliance expert but also to spend some time reflecting on what could make life better for you. Is your fridge always overloaded? Maybe it’s time to look at a bigger model or maybe a separate fridge and freezer. Have a big household? Or perhaps you love to have big gatherings? Maybe a second dishwasher would help make clean up a breeze. Sick of bending down to check on your baking? Perhaps a wall oven and cooktop are better suited for you instead of a traditional range. Find yourself adjusting oven temperatures to try to make multiple dishes at once? Perhaps a double oven is in order?
Once you have thought about your wants and needs take a trip to your local appliance store. Take the time to touch and feel the appliances, you never know what you may fall in love with and what will become a non-negotiable part of your kitchen. Once you have a basic idea of what you want, then start the process of your kitchen design. It will help eliminate a lot of frustration in the long run. You don’t want to spend all your time and energy designing a kitchen with a 30” range when you fall in love with a wall oven and cooktop and have to start all over with your design.
