Get a Head Start on Your Kitchen Design with this Guide

Whether you’re considering a complete renovation or you’re ready to create the perfect kitchen for your new home, your first step should be a consultation with a design professional. Your designer will guide you through the process, but you can get a head start by following this guide:

1Wish List

Write down everything you want in your new kitchen with the things you want most at the top. Dream big and leave your concerns about budget aside until you speak with your designer.


Do you prefer traditional, rustic, transitional, contemporary or modern design? What cabinet finishes to you like? If you’re not sure, sit down with a magazine and bookmark looks you like, or start a Houzz or Pinterest board to share with your designer.


How do you plan on using your new kitchen? Do you have children or are you an empty nester who likes to host? Do you cook or bake by yourself or with a partner? Make a list of all the functional things you want to do in your kitchen.

4Reality Check

Are you renovating to resell or is this your forever home? What are you replacing and what can be kept as-is? Cabinets and countertops are a given, but you should also list other items to replace or upgrade like flooring, electrical, lighting fixtures, plumbing and appliances.
