To achieve the best results for successful kitchen planning, it is important to work with a kitchen designer. At B&T Kitchens and Baths, we have an experienced Design Team that can help translate your kitchen remodeling project into one that will be organized and structured to meet your personal goals and timeline. Designers are not only savvy about products, layouts and trends, but their experience is invaluable in guiding you through what works and what doesn't work. They can provide you with kitchen remodeling ideas that will work for you based on their years of experience with kitchen remodels. They understand the relationship between various elements in the kitchen and can provide you with valuable insight and options that can save you money by suggesting similar products in a variety of price points.
Kitchen planning involves narrowing down your favorite kitchen remodeling ideas that will assist your kitchen designer in planning your kitchen remodel. Study layouts to determine what would work best for your kitchen and consider the special needs of the cooks in your family. This will allow you to incorporate your own touches. Ask your friends and family what they like and dislike about their own kitchens—it's easier to see the principles of good kitchen planning in practice in rooms you have actually walked through. Other considerations during the planning process include the following questions:
- What color palette would you like to see in your new kitchen?
- What colors would you like to avoid?
- Describe your style?
- What do you like and dislike about your current kitchen?
- Will you keep your existing appliances or replace some or all of them?
- Would you like to add additional work space like an island or bar top?
- Would you like to incorporate any specialty items into your kitchen like a wine rack or decorative range hood?
- What is your countertop choice?
- What is your project timeline? When would you like it to start and to be completed?
- What is your budget for this project?
Kitchen planning is much more than making your kitchen look good—it's also about creating an inviting workplace that celebrates your individual personality and style while maintaining quality and function as the cornerstone of the remodeling project.
