Top Five Kitchen Design Tips

When redesigning a kitchen, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with options.

You know you want storage and functionality, but what are some of the little things that will make your kitchen really shine?

We put together a list of our favorite top five tips for designing a brand new kitchen. With these simple steps and suggestions, your way to the kitchen of your dreams in no time.


Kitchen design is unique when it comes to light source. When mapping out your lighting, it’s important to consider where you’ll be preparing your meals and where you might need the most light. Do you work from your kitchen? Is this where the kids gather to do homework? Your designer can help you map out some great lighting options to help you shine some light on what counts!


While storage will make it to the top-three priorities for any kitchen remodel, smart storage is a whole other story. Consider what clutter you struggle with the most and identify “wasted space” you have now. With a little creativity and imagination, your design team can transform those wasted spaces into useful hiding spots for all your kitchen essentials.

Open Space

There’s no such thing as an ideal kitchen space. If you’re struggling to outfit a galley, u-shaped or even narrow kitchen space, your design team can help you consider what other design options are available that will maximize your square footage. 

Necessary Power Sources

You want those brand new appliances in your design. However, if you’re adding more appliances than you currently have, you’ll have to consider outlets, gas lines, and plumbing hookups to accommodate the new appliances.

Counter Tops

There’s no such thing as too much counter space! This space can be useful as a place to prep food, eat quick meals, store dry goods and even add some decor. When choosing your counter top materials it’s important to consider durability and maintenance.

A good design needs to start somewhere.

Think outside the box and although anything is possible, there are a few places to start when it comes time to dreaming up your design. Create the perfect combination of form, function, and durability and your new design will be able to grow effortlessly with your family.
