Professional Kitchen Design

Kitchen design assistance can be found from multiple sources. It is important that you research designs from several sources in order to make sure you have found the design that is perfect for your kitchen. Each resource has its pros and cons and no one option is right for everyone. Take the time to discover and investigate all the different sources before making your final decision. Below are some descriptions of common places to find design assistance.

Kitchen Design Software

Today’s technology has created software for you to use to create your kitchen design. If you are interested in using such software, it may require you to study the program for a short period of time. Most of these software packages are designed for professional use. However, there are some that allow a novice to use the program and learn about different design ideas in a short amount of time. These programs are a great way to help you visualize how the design will look and also offer you suggestions on where appliances should be located and point out any mistakes.

Keep in mind; these types of software programs are not properly equipped to know the small details of your exact kitchen. There may opportunities and obstacles with your kitchen layout that the program can not understand. For example, only a professional will be able to locate existing ducts, pipes, wires, chimneys and load-bearing walls.

Kitchen Architects

Many people enjoy getting their design assistance the traditional way. They hire an architect to help them organize ideas and integrate their specific needs and wants into the design. A detailed plan is then created. Many people enjoy this approach because they feel safe knowing that a highly trained individual is guiding them through their design process. However, not everyone can hire an architect. In fact, many architects will turn done jobs that are too small such as single residential kitchens. You may be able to hire an architect that offers a la carte services, meaning they provide less comprehensive service for smaller jobs and work on an hourly rate. In general, architects are your most expensive option.

Kitchen Dealer-Designers

Designer-dealers can provide you with design advice from a unique perspective. They concentrate on the products being used in your new kitchen such as cabinet styles, countertop options, decorative trim, special lighting effects and special pullout racks. They will be trying to sell their products to you, but at the same time they will be giving you free or discounted design advice.

Kitchen Remodelers

Similar to designer-dealers, remodelers can offer you useful design assistance. Unlike designer-dealers, kitchen remodelers direct their attention to construction. Typically, they know less about specific products, but they can offer advice with the construction process.

Kitchen Design/Build Firms

This is a relatively new approach to kitchen design. Homeowners are increasingly favoring design/build firms over architects because they want to avoid being the project manager and are also interested in avoiding conflicts between the architects vision, the builder's understanding of structural soundness, and the local building codes. With design/build firms the homeowner does not have to worry about such things because those involved with building and designing work together. This approach is generally less expensive and more practical as well.
