How to start planning your kitchen

For most people, the kitchen is perhaps the only true ‘workspace’ in the house. Which means your kitchen is one of the few places in your home that needs to be as functional as it is beautiful. Each aspect of its design should help you prepare meals, connect with the people you care about, and support your ever changing lifestyle. If this sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

A Kitchen Built Around You

Before you start designing your kitchen, take a moment to think about how you’ll use it. Everyone is different. Some people like to spend hours working on new recipes to surprise their families with. Others enjoy putting the final touches on a meal as their dinner guests begin to arrive. In other families, cooking is a shared activity with a couple of chefs working together in tandem.

However you work in your kitchen is up to you. But keep it in mind while you design. There is no one size-fits-all. Use this process to design a kitchen that supports your cooking style, whatever that means to you. In this article, we’ll break down the three main principles of kitchen design: · Zoning: organizing your kitchen based on activity. · Ergonomics: where to place everything for ease of use. · Circulation: designing a kitchen you can move around in. These are time-tested principles of kitchen design that planners have been using for centuries. As you read our recommendations, be sure to keep coming back to that essential question: what does a well-designed kitchen mean to you? Don’t just follow our ideas to the letter; think about how they apply to your unique lifestyle and the choices you make every day.
