Before you come see one of our experienced Kitchen Craft kitchen designers, you should have a well thought out plan in order for your kitchen project to be successful.
Your Kitchen Craft designer will be focused on three main things: creating a kitchen design that will work with your lifestyle, fulfills your needs and dreams and most of all that fits within your budget.
Let’s take a quick look at 5 things you’ll need to carefully consider before you book your kitchen design project appointment.
1. How Much Are You Willing To Spend?
You should level with your designer as to just how much you will be willing to spend on your kitchen project.
Let the designer know just what you would feel comfortable spending. This way you can insure that they will have a clear direction on where to go with the project and not go overboard. They will have a good idea of the limits when drawing up plans and selecting materials.
2. How Much Time Are You Willing To Devote?
You need to consider what your personal needs are, and if you will be able to work around the necessary construction in your kitchen. By consulting with an experienced Kitchen Craft designer you can get a good idea of how long your kitchen project will take by providing a timeline that you and the rest of your family can plan around.
3. What Style Are You Planning For Your Kitchen Project?
You’ll want to give your kitchen designer as much information as possible. As a result, you need to do some research and make a few decisions prior to your first meeting with them.
First you should look at our website’s inspiration gallery, design magazines and/or other online resources, such as Pinterest or Houzz to get an idea of what style and design elements you would like to see for your kitchen.
Compile these ideas and take notes about your likes and dislikes regarding things such as colour and style. Put together a scrapbook or mood board with clips and imagess, as well as examples of materials and design elements you would like to see in the kitchen.
Use these to show your Kitchen Craft designer what your “vision” is for your new space. It’s also important to bring a list of questions you’ve gathered along the way for your kitchen designer as well.
4. How Do You Use Your Kitchen?
You need to be prepared for questions that your designer will ask you when you meet with them. Among the questions that you may be asked are:
Will you be doing a lot of entertaining with family and friends in your kitchen?
Is your family busy during the week with lots of activities?
How much storage for food, dishes, cutlery, small appliances, etc. do you need?
5. How To Prepare For Your Kitchen Design Project?
You will need to prepare for the disruption that will be caused by your new kitchen project. But by working closely with your Kitchen Craft designer and their extended team, and with the right planning you can make the project run as smoothly and a quickly as possible.
You need to make sure that your kitchen project area and your main living area are separate for both safety reasons and to stay out of the way of our Kitchen Craft Installer and their crew.
Also consider that you might have to set up a ‘temporary kitchen’ in another room of your house. That being said, the time of the year when you schedule your kitchen project can make it easier on everyone since, in the warmer months it is possible to eat and cook outdoors if need be.
Designing a kitchen is as much a science as it is an art. Using these tips, and relying on the experience and expertise of your Kitchen Craft designer and their extended team will make every aspect of your kitchen project, from planning to final installation, a dream come true.
