what to consider during a kitchen redesign

Are you considering redesigning your kitchen? The kitchen is an important space in each one’s home, and the decision to install new cabinetry and create a new custom kitchen design is a big one. When considering taking on a major home improvement project, like kitchen design, kitchen remodeling, or interior design, it helps to understand the work at hand. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the Modiani kitchen design process as well as kitchen design and remodeling in general.

Design And Installation Process

Modiani Kitchens is dedicated to making the design and installation process as simple and seamless as possible. It is easy to get drawn into the style and decor that you will embrace in your kitchen redesign, there are a few important technical aspects to consider:

  • Foot Traffic:
    Most kitchen spaces in the US are usually very busy and family members pass through the space a lot. When remodeling your kitchen, pay close attention to where the entrances and exits of the kitchen are. Can people pass through the space? How can you access the kitchen from the outside? Is it close to the garage and can you park relatively close to the kitchen to unload your groceries? It often helps to visit our kitchen showroom in Englewood, NJ to get a better understanding of how to optimize spaces in the kitchen.
  • Work Flow:
    In the study of kitchen design, the concept of the “work triangle” was created to optimize the workflow in a kitchen space. The work triangle refers to the common paths that a cook takes while preparing meals in the kitchen. The three major points of this triangle are the stove, the sink, and the refrigerator. The cook must not only have easy access to each of these points, but he or she must be able to move freely between them. The key when redesigning your kitchen is to make sure that the space between these areas is ample enough that the cook doesn’t feel cramped, but close enough that traveling between these areas doesn’t cause a hiccup in the cook’s workflow.
  • Storage:
    A major function of the kitchen, in addition to providing an area to prepare meals, is to provide ample storage. When planning your kitchen redesign, our kitchen designers at Modiani Kitchens will make sure that you have enough space for all of your dishes, glasses and cookware.

Kitchen Redesign Expectations

It is important to handle your expectations properly when redesigning your kitchen space. It helps to be aware that the kitchen design process is rarely streamlined or stress-free. Problems or delays beyond the control of your contractor or kitchen design company may arise during kitchen makeovers. However, it helps to think positively and of the beautiful, final kitchen, which you can enjoy for many years to come.

Best Timing for Kitchen Renovations

Should you plan a kitchen redesign in NJ or a kitchen remodel in NYC, if possible, try to avoid renovating your kitchen in the winter. A mild climate will allow you to grill outside, have picnics, go to the beach and just have a better experience overall whilst going through a kitchen makeover. Kitchen remodeling projects during summer will also keep heating expenses low, which may otherwise increase due to contractors repeatedly entering and leaving your home. We promise you to accompany you throughout the whole kitchen remodeling process to make the experience as easy and convenient as possible.
