So you are thinking of a new kitchen or bathroom…

A great way to research some possibilities for your new kitchen or bathroom is to flip through magazines or look at some popular websites.

It’s a lot of fun once you get started! There are so many possibilities!

So now that you have found your inspiration what is the next step?

Well, the best way is to start from the ground up and begin designing your floor plan. Think functionality. A good place to start with is the appliance locations. In order to create an efficient kitchen, we use a concept referred to as the “work triangle”.

For those who don’t know, the kitchen work triangle connects the three main work areas in the kitchen: the sink, the range, and the refrigerator. If the distance is too small, it can make a kitchen feel cramped and blocked. If it’s too large, it makes cooking a hassle.

If you are wondering if there is a basic floor plan, no; everyone is different! You may have a special focal point that you wish to achieve or limitations in your home’s footprint. The work triangle is simply a guideline. Even though understanding this concept can be incredibly helpful, you can allow your design to bend the rules to suit your purposes.

Once we get this floor plan perfected, then you can start on your finishes.

That’s where the real fun begins!
