Kitchen design is one of the most critical components in a renovation project. Most homeowners get overwhelmed when thinking about all these decisions and don’t know where to even start. Here are some suggestions:
Gather, Gather, Gather
This step is all about finding your style using every resource possible, including design books, photos, magazines, and blogs. Gather as many different elements of style and color without thinking about why you like it, the more ideas to plan with the better!

When planning a new kitchen your local kitchen and bath showroom is a great resource. Kitchen showrooms typically feature several different kitchen styles and incorporate lots of different features and benefits that you might not even thought of. They will have samples of materials, styles and colors available for cabinets, countertops, tiles, etc… Most kitchen showrooms offer very talented kitchen and bath designers to help you make the best of the space and products available. You may visit a number of kitchen showrooms and see many styles and designs before you finally decide on the kitchen that suits your lifestyle and budget.
It will be time and effort well spent, as there are many things to consider:
- Cabinetry construction type, door-style, storage options, finish and color
- Countertop material
- Sink(s) and faucet(s)
- Light fixtures
- Decorative hardware
- Paint colors
- Trim profiles
- Furniture, bar stools, etc.
Planning a new kitchen is very exciting but keep in mind that nothing is more disruptive in a family’s lifestyle than a major kitchen renovation. An experienced kitchen designer will work with you to minimize the disruption of the new kitchen installation as much as possible and on a tight deadline.
Redesigning a new kitchen is a process but before you know it – your piles of ideas and inspirations will transform into your dream kitchen!
