Kitchens are the number-one most popular remodel, but they can present a challenge if you don’t know where to start. My advice is to kick things off by determining what kitchen shape you want.
There are several popular shapes for kitchens, including the island design, L-shape, and horseshoe or U-shape.
This island design by my friend Shannon Bieter uses one wall for all the cupboard and storage space her client needed, and it put the stove and oven in the island to maximize space and complete the triangle work zone of sink, refrigerator, and stove. It also gives plenty of counter space for prepping.
Designer Heather Harkovich created an L-shaped kitchen, perfect for cooking and entertaining and bringing friends or family together around that delicious-looking chocolate cake!
This horseshoe shaped kitchen by Michelle Lynne makes the triangle work zone a breeze. The island can be used exclusively for prep and this kitchen is large enough for any chef!
This galley style kitchen by Sara Ingrassia is great for smaller spaces like lofts and renovated old homes. It provides all the space you need for a stylish and functional kitchen.
