5 More Tips to Help in Your Kitchen Design Journey

Previously, we had listed 10 tips to make your kitchen design journey as smooth as possible. Here are five more tips.

Stay organized. Use a large binder with folders to keep track of paperwork, floor plans, product specifications, etc. In one section, collect photos and clippings illustrating your ideas and taste. In another keep samples, color chips, etc. This type of organization helps keep the final vision for the kitchen stay in focus.

Create a realistic time frame for the project. Many skilled professionals are required in any kitchen remodel. As part of their written estimates, you should be aware of the expected lead times. Custom cabinetry and countertops can especially require a lot of lead time.

Project yourself into the future and plan accordingly. If you plan to have this kitchen a long time, go wild and personalize the space. If you plan to sell in the near future, remain consistent with the values in the neighborhood and select a style with broad appeal. This can include planning display space in your kitchen for your favorite objects, as well as some artwork.

Bring home all samples and view them in the space. It’s especially important to be aware of differences during day and night. Sunlight and artificial light dramatically change color and texture.

Use your senses. See, touch, feel, and smell everything prior to purchasing. Don’t choose solely from a catalog or the internet because you may feel differently when you see the item in person.
