When planning a new kitchen, it is sometimes difficult to determine what is “good design”. If your predilection is toward traditional design, you might consider contemporary design to be bad design. This is also true if you prefer a transitional style kitchen, you might feel that an ornate, country French design kitchen is bad design. So what is “good design”?
At The Kitchen Specialist, we feel there are several aspects to good design. First, and foremost, good design must be functional. A good design solves problems and optimizes the functionality of the kitchen. It does no good if something is pretty but does not work. We pride ourselves on creating both beautiful and functional kitchens.
Good design must be visually pleasing. The visual quality of a kitchen is an integral part to its usefulness. As kitchens are used every day and such areas of the home have an effect on people’s well-being and they must be a pleasing space to occupy. At The Kitchen Specialist, we endeavor to design new kitchens to be spaces that bring happiness to each and every client.
Good design is user friendly. Each piece of the “kitchen puzzle” must be placed in its appropriate and useful space. It is incumbent upon our staff to enhance your quality of life through a truly usable and logical kitchen. We work hard to ensure that each design element has rhyme and reason.
Good design is focused. It is effective and efficient in fulfilling its purpose. In the tradition of the Bauhaus movement of 1920’s and 30’s, we believe that less is more. Each design element counts. We look for the least common denominator and try to solve each concept with the idea that good design is always the simplest possible working solution.
Finally, good design is thorough to the last detail. Kitchens that stand up to the rigors of life, and are still beautiful and functional in twenty years, are generally due to good design. The time and care that we take in attending to the details of your kitchen help it stand-up to those challenges.
So is “good design” traditional, contemporary, transitional or French country style? No, it is a life style. All of our kitchens are designed in a simple and logical fashion, no matter what your individual style is. We, at The Kitchen Specialist, work to in instill a lasting satisfaction for each individual need with “good design”.
