Choose the Perfect Kitchen Design for Your Needs
Before you think of remodeling your kitchen, find a design that's just right for your needs -- whether that's a deluxe room for entertaining or an efficient space for cooking.
With deluxe kitchens, think in terms of work zones, or stations -- sink, stove, and refrigerator in one area, perhaps a drink fridge and snack cabinet in another, and a baking center in a third.
And never underestimate the value of a second sink in a large space. Also think strategically regarding traffic flow. You don’t want people to have to walk through the main cooking area to grab their soda and bag of chips.
