The thought of designing and enjoying a new kitchen is exciting! There are so many new materials and trends. The possibilities are endless. You can picture those new appliances, a back-splash just like the one you saw in Houzz or the counter top you saw on the Stearns Design Build page.
It is easy to get caught up in the glitz and lose sight of designing a kitchen to fit your life style and your stuff. It is not at all uncommon for customers of other design firms to get finished with their new kitchen and start to wonder where they will put everything. Of course, that is backwards.
It is best to consider where you are going to put everything as you begin design. That is the advantage of custom design – it allows you to design to the specifics of your life. It is exciting to design a kitchen that fits you like a glove.
Don’t forget to think ahead. Plan for what you have and what you think you will have in the future. If you had more pantry space, what would you put there?
