How to Plan Your Kitchen Space During a Remodel

Good design may be more critical in the kitchen than in any other room. These tips for working with a pro can help.

The preliminary space-planning and schematic design phase is the most important part of any kitchen remodel. A kitchen can be filled with beautiful materials and finishes, but if the layout and space don’t work well, it’s not a successful design. In kitchens, more than in any other room, a good space plan and flow are critical. Anyone who has tried working in a poorly designed kitchen knows this.

Bigger isn’t always better. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve met with clients who told me they had abandoned a remodel years ago because they couldn’t afford the design as it was planned. It took them years to get over their initial design plan and be willing to talk to another designer to investigate alternative options. Read on for some ways to avoid this.
