Designing A Kitchen

TomI always find these posts confusing because I can’t tell if the images are highlighting the mistakes (which I can’t see) or showing how to properly execute the issue described (which, if so, they seem subtle). For example, #9 seems like an example of “too trendy”, while #4 seems to be relatively well lit for a “poor lighting” example.Which is it?SamanthaHello!!Loved the Post!Very helpful!SamanthaKunchu MPvery niceshazMy heart got stuck with the 7th Don’t choose a wrong kitchen island.and going the prepare the same on my new home …….AndrewLove kitchen #1!

Do you have any other tips or advice about what to avoid when designing a home?Rose HendersonI don’t see how anyone could thing they could do an entire kitchen renovation on their own. There are so many factors to consider, like the electricity and the plumbing. You don’t want to risk messing up either of those elements in the process. They can be dangerous and cause major problems if not handled properly.MFergusonLove kitchen #1, could someone please tell me what the color of the cabinets are, and what color thegranite is. I am remodeling my home and I really like the colors. If anyone knows please tell me.Alexis WebberThis is so helpful! My husband and I are renovating our kitchen and we have a decent amount of space to work with. I didn’t know about the kitchen triangle, but now that I’m aware of it, it totally makes sense. The last place I lived in had hardly any counter space so I’m thinking maybe we can put in an island. Awesome advice!Zubair ِArshadYour website is really cool and this is a inspiring article. Thank you so much.Jack MooreThese are some really good tips! As an amateur carpenter, I am amazed when people completely ignore the kitchen triangle, and then complain that their kitchen is inconvenient. But the most important thing to remember when renovating a kitchen is #9; don’t go too trendy. Think about what was remarkably popular in design even only two or three years ago. And then think about how tacky that is all considered now. So make sure to design a space that is going to look nice, and continue to look nice for a while.Will SmithHow do you count legs in a triangle? I must have missed that day in school. Thanks for nothing.The DogThey’re suggesting that you count the total sum length of the legs of the triangle. Sink to range 5 feet. Fridge to range 6 feet. Sink to fridge 4 feet. Total would be 15 feet, which is within the 10 – 25 feet guideline.
