Designing your kitchen involves more than just placing boxes on the wall, which is what many of the less expensive cabinet companies do. If you’re going to invest time and money into your home, then invest the time to learn about your kitchen designer.

To start with, is your designer asking you what you want to achieve when remolding your kitchen? Are you looking for more space or a more convenient way to access the space in your kitchen? This is also known as ergonomics: the study of designing equipment and devices to fit the human body, its movement and its cognitive abilities.

If you have a small kitchen, you’ll want more usable space that is easy to access, while allowing the design to flow well. Is your designer asking you about your budget? And what does it include or not include? Here are some tips on how to answer these questions:


• Make a reasonable budget. Most designers will help by giving you ideas on what to expect price-wise.

• Make a list of what your budget includes like cabinets, pulls or knobs, appliances, etc. Just as important, make a list of what it does not like electrical work, plumbing, etc.

• Let the designer know that you are going to get other quotes with this same list. He or she might try to match or be under your budget to get the job. Please take note: Is your budget reasonable and are you looking for low, medium or high end cabinets? A tip is to ask what kind of warranty comes with the cabinets, what kind of finish is on them and how long it will last in our humid, salty air?


Then, of course, there is style. Are you looking for traditional, modern, contemporary and Hawaiian or island style? How is this going to complement your house and enrich the look of your kitchen? This will require showing you many different cabinet door styles and countertops.
