HOME DESIGN CHAT WITH NANCY
In our last podcast Nancy and Les Sturtevant, owner of Designer Dream Kitchen Studio in Scottsdale, Az, discussed the key items to be addressed when planning your kitchen remodel. This week they continued that topic with several more important key points to be considered:
Expanding the Space: Removing non load bearing walls might be a way to open up your floorplan and increase the size of the kitchen. This could create a large open floorplan that would be more inviting giving you more use for the space.
Efficiency is Key: Setting up work zones or task areas will increase the function and efficiency of your space. Think zones when you are planning a bake center, clean up area, prep area and seating area.
Islands are more than Pretty: Islands come in all shapes and sizes. They could have sinks and appliances or just plain work islands. Remember to leave adequate circulation around the island. Most islands are 36 inches above the floor making it convenient as a workspace and seating with bar stools.
Don’t follow Trends: Most kitchens are remodeled once every 10 years or more. Add color with accessories or window treatments rather than bright colored appliances or cabinets that you might tire of after a short time.
Ask and Expert: The kitchen is the most complicated and expensive room in the house to design, so paying for a bit of expert advice at the start of a project can take the stress out of the process and save you money in the long run.
