Kitchen Design Programs Make Remodeling Easy

by Shannon Dauphin

Kitchen design programs can help you establish the best overall look for your kitchen. But before you start working with those computer programs and drafting sheets, simply walk through your existing kitchen and make a few initial plans.

Kitchen Design: Where to Begin?

Planning your kitchen design can be easy if you take it step-by-step:

  • Start with the floor plan. What kind of space do you need to move around? Walk into your existing kitchen, close your eyes, and imagine moving around in a new space. Where should everything be?
  • Choose the cabinets. The cabinets are something you should plan to live with for a long time, so don't cut corners! Choose kitchen cabinets that reflect your personal style.
  • Remember the counter space. Wide, ample counter space invites you to linger and get creative about cooking. Kitchen countertops come in all kinds of materials and fit nicely into every size budget.
  • Add your special touch. What makes your kitchen unique? If you loved stained glass, put it in. If you enjoy the feel of tile under your feet or the look of granite on your island, have at it! Little touches that reflect your personal style are what set your kitchen apart.
  • Make it all flow. Once you have the design elements in place, look at the flow of the room. Can you move from one area to another with ease? Do guests have plenty of room to mingle without getting in the way? Are serving and preparation areas in the appropriate spots?

Write down all of your ideas. When it's time to plug them into the kitchen design program, you can get the perfect picture of your dream kitchen.
