Choosing The Right Pieces For Your New Kitchen Before The Renovation Begins

Posted on

Renovating a kitchen is a huge undertaking, and it is often hard to decide the best pieces for your new kitchen design. One method that can be helpful is to visit a kitchen showroom and work with a designer to choose the right pieces and the best layout for the space you have available.

Determine Your Space

Before you head to the kitchen showroom to start your design, take some time and measure your kitchen, then sketch the layout on some paper to take with you. The designer at the kitchen showroom will use those dimensions to set up your kitchen layout on the computer so they can add and remove items virtually to help you figure out the perfect arrangement for your space. 

As you are shopping for items for your new kitchen, you can have the designer put them into place to see what fits and then alter the design to maximize the space in the kitchen and create a flow that will make working in the room more manageable and more enjoyable. Once the design is complete, you can use it to discuss your renovation with potential contractors and find one that can create the vision you and your kitchen designer put together.

Finishes And Colors

When you arrive at the kitchen showroom, you will be able to look through many different samples of countertops, cabinets, tile, and other materials. Determining what textures and colors you like can be a good starting point, and once you have some colors in mind, the kitchen designer you are working with can apply them to the virtual design of your kitchen. 

The virtual design will allow you to try many different colors and textures to find the one you like best for each part of the room. If you want to change something, it can be changed on the computer to compare the difference to decide what works best for you. 

It can be fun to change countertops or repaint the cabinets on the fly. This system will allow you to make changes right up until the time comes to order the cabinets, countertops, and other items that will be made specifically for your kitchen.

Choosing Appliances

Most kitchen showrooms will have appliances that you can look at as well. When you are laying out your new kitchen, it is essential to include the appliances to be incorporated into the design. 

Getting appliances with the features you want is important, but making sure they also fit the room can make a significant difference. The best appliances available are great, but if they will not fit your kitchen, there is little point in buying them. The virtual kitchen design can help you determine what will work for the square footage you have to work with.
