Designing a Functional Kitchen for your Home

In no other room is the phrase "form follows function" more appropriate than in kitchen designs. In other words, no matter how good the space looks, if it doesn’t function well, it’s still no good. By contrast, if you have a kitchen that not only looks good, but allows you to complete your tasks quickly and easily, your kitchen will become your favorite room in your house and cooking will probably not feel like such a chore. Kitchens tend to be the most used room in a house. Even when you have guests over, often everyone gathers in the kitchen.

So, in kitchen designs you need a space that not only looks good, but allows you to accomplish your various cooking tasks as well. For instance, think about the “work triangle.” In this design idea, the three most used spots in your kitchen, the refrigerator, the stove and the sink are all within just a couple of steps of each other and laid out to form a triangular workflow area. If you’re in the process of having your kitchen renovated or having a new house constructed, consider the impact kitchen designs can have on this space.

To help with kitchen designs, you can even consider purchasing software to help you with layout. These little programs let you input your kitchen information such as dimensions, appliances, etc. and help you determine the best way your kitchen should be arranged.

For even more help with kitchen designs, consider paying a little extra money to have a professional kitchen designer come in and design it for you. The extra cost is well worth the payoff in having a space that is not only visually pleasing but will give you years of functionality as well.

When considering kitchen design professionals, look for designers who have IIDA certification. IIDA stands for the International Interior Design Association. These designers have fulfilled IIDA’s requirements for education and experience and have passed the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) exam.
