At Corner Cabinet Corporation, we truly believe that creating a well-designed kitchen is an art. We value function before beauty and always want to ensure that the kitchen makes you happy every time you walk in.
Of course, looks shouldn’t be everything. The cabinets should be as functional as possible, delivering the most efficient use of space as the kitchen layout allows. That’s why it’s so important to work with a kitchen designer who can help to customize your kitchen cabinets to your particular cooking style. Here are some things to consider.
Make Your Equipment Accessible
When you’re designing kitchen cabinets, it’s important to consider which countertop appliances you’ll be using the most. If you use large and heavy equipment often, such as countertop mixers and crockpots, you’ll want to put large-capacity cabinets in the right place so you don’t have to move them very far. If, however, you haven’t used the countertop mixer in years and don’t see yourself doing so anytime soon, you can put the higher-capacity areas off to the side and hide the mixer therein.
What Food Do You Cook?
What do you cook in the kitchen? Some people have very little interest in stovetop cooking but will spend their entire weekend baking cakes. Others might only cook what Blue Apron or Hello Fresh delivers and have little need of specialty equipment.
While most people will be looking for a well-balanced kitchen design that puts everything in a very good spot, those whose sole kitchen endeavors consist of cake decorating or other specialty will be looking for the perfect spot for everything. This includes the perfect island/oven placement to make moving the creations as little as possible.
Consider Your Physique
A kitchen remodel is one of the most cost-efficient ways to add value to your home. That’s because an updated kitchen offers so many ways to impress potential buyers, from the appliances to the kitchen cabinetry.
But even if you are thinking ahead about the value your kitchen remodel will add to your home, it’s important to remember that, in most cases, the remodal is for you and the others in your home. If you’re on the shorter side, you want to have a kitchen design that can accommodate your stature. The higher counters and sinks that are becoming more popular? They’re not worth it if it makes cooking harder for you on a daily basis. That’s why getting custom kitchen cabinet and countertop design is so important.
Islands might not be right for every kitchen, but they work well in the bulk of kitchen designs. Consider what you want your island to do. Is it your vegetable prep station and requires a sink? Or will it primarily be a workstation for baking? Islands can do just about anything you want them to, from creating a second dining space to housing the dishwasher.
