Redesigning your kitchen is a big project, and it’s always best to ask questions to ensure everything goes smoothly! Some questions will be easier to answer based on the design you want for your kitchen, but there are other decisions that you may not even consider until the project has started. Continue reading for three questions you should ask before redesigning your kitchen for the best results.
What Are The Building Code Rules?
Before designing your dream kitchen, you must make sure you are following the building code rules. Double check with your builder, designer, or architect to ensure your plans are realistic. For instance, your building codes may state which type of hood fan you need for proper ventilation. Be prepared by reading knowing all the rules before-hand to avoid having to change your entire design.
What Profile Should I Use For Countertops?
You may not think that the shape of your countertops is an important detail, but it makes a more significant difference than you think. Decide on the shape of the edge of your countertops before the project begins, as you don’t want to make such a crucial decision at the last minute. The profile makes a difference in the look and function of the countertops, and even to the whole kitchen design. For example, an eased edge gives a contemporary, modern appeal, while ornate profiles fit in a traditional style kitchen.
How Do I Choose Finishes For Fixtures?
Choosing a material for your kitchen fixtures is a big decision, as it makes a significant impact on your kitchen design. The best advice is to not choose finishes based on trends or color palettes, as each finish has its own advantages. Many people try to coordinate multiple finishes and metal elements, which creates an interesting design but is not an easy decision to make. Research the pros and cons of each finish, and pair samples of various metals to see how they interact before committing to the fixtures.
