Whether for office or home, designing an efficient and functional kitchen first starts by understanding the space you have, and utilizing it in a way to optimize the space you have for the items you deem the most necessary.

Here are a few considerations to make during the concept stage of a kitchen redesign:

‘Choose materials wisely

When choosing countertops and other finishes, be mindful that “There’s no such thing as an indestructible material. Everything will show wear,” she says. “Ask yourself, what do you want to feel and see everyday?” (Rick and Cindy Black Architects)

Use drawers and doors deliberately

Cabinetry should include both fully-extended drawers and vertical storage. Both have their purposes. Deeper vertical cabinets, sometimes fitted with slots, can accommodate more awkward shapes. Take an inventory of your kitchen equipment so you’ll know exactly what you need.

Let the kitchen “make sense”

The kitchen should have some tie-in so it doesn’t look like it was just dropped from the sky. If you’re drawn to a particular trend, think about why you like it and try to adapt the trend to the existing style, rather than just copying it.’ (Melissa Dalton, curbed.com)
