Why You Should Work with a Kitchen and Bath Designer By Megan Dierenfield
The majority of us have watched at least one show on HGTV. We often think to ourselves “If the people on TV can do it, so can we.” However, that's usually not the case. As a designer we specialize in creating your space in much the same way as a neurosurgeon specializes in the brain. Obviously, you could attempt a design on your own, but just imagine the possibilities with a professional!
Creating a beautiful working space is more than just choosing colors and finishes. As a designer we help you choose the colors and finishes, and we make sure your kitchen will function properly. Some of the concerns for a kitchen design are the work triangle and traffic flow. We’re well educated in the kitchen and bath standards along with creative solutions to even the most unique obstacles.
A kitchen and bath designer have intimate knowledge of the industry. We're not just versed in what makes a kitchen function, but we can help you choose the right materials to fit you and your lifestyle. Are you aiming for a more traditional design? Contemporary? Midcentury Modern? It's important to understand the design factors behind these choices.
I like to ask my clients a few core questions before ever starting a design. What will you be using your kitchen for? Do you like to cook? Are you planning on entertaining? Do you have children, or do you plan on growing your family? It's important to design your home around your current lifestyle but also plan for your future.
We are a set of fresh eyes for your project. Using a kitchen designer allows you to see your kitchen not as it is, but as it could be. A designer can look at your home with a new set of eyes to determine if the current set up is really the most functional.
Designers help avoid costly mistakes and regrets. Our experience can help avoid quirky technical problems such as; doors that don’t open, appliance collisions, and uneven reveals. We'll make sure we make the most of your space and budget.
Most K&B Designers can assist you with more than just your kitchen and bathrooms too! We can help you in your laundry room, offices, mudrooms, fireplaces, anywhere you may need some extra storage.
Lastly, we all have a look we’re trying to achieve but don't know where to begin. That’s where we come in!
Make sure you do your research. Not everyone will be the perfect fit for you and your project. The ideal designer - client relationship is based on communication, trust, respect and teamwork.
