“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
Planning is part of the fun when your talking about planning your dream home. Part of planning is knowing what is possible and then balancing that with what you need and what you can afford.
First let’s get inspired….
We will start with kitchens. Kitchens are the number one most remodeled space in the home. The kitchen has transformed from a hidden area to the center of family living and with it a host of options to choose from. We are going to show you a few items we think you may not have considered, are new or unique…
The work triangle is a concept around the ida of limiting uncessary movement and maximizing ease of use in the kitchen. Imagine a triangle that connects the three main places where you do three different tasks: cleanup, cooking, and food storage.
Islands & Peninsulas
Islands and peninsulas are a part of almost every kitchen. They provide storage, entertainment space, cooking and prep area and a place to do homework while someone is cooking. The key to a successful kitchen is figuring out what works with the way you live, what kind of storage, what appliances and then design a flow and work triangle that looks beautiful. Planning again is the key! 3D architectural renderings can help you see your space and view alternative layouts before remodeling.
