Over time the role of a kitchen designer has evolved considerably as have kitchens themselves. The increased complexity associated with the modern day kitchen demands a higher level of technical expertise, as well as the vision and experience of a specialist who regularly focuses on how this area of the home can be best utilised.
What hasn’t changed is the important role a kitchen designer can play in protecting your interests and your budget. For many home-owners building or renovating a kitchen is a once in a lifetime project. Kitchen designers know how to create the look you want, while keeping within your budget and getting the job completed in a timely manner.
Professional advice, especially at the initial planning stages (even if you know what you want) are crucial as the designer can provide you with design solutions or inform you of design constraints that you may not have previously thought of.
When undertaking a kitchen reno, it’s important to be realistic about your own ability and time constraints. Are you confident in being able to complete your own kitchen design, plus also be responsible for its project management? To do so, you will need excellent time management and negotiation skills. Unless you are truly confident of your capabilities, engaging a designer to handle the job for you can not only result in a superior kitchen, but also result in a project that is much better coordinated and time efficient.
It can also be much more cost effective, and just having the peace of mind knowing you have a professional to rely on can be a huge relief.
A kitchen designer will discuss all aspects of designing, renovating, or updating the kitchen, along with providing advice on the most suitable building materials, styles, colour palettes, room layouts, and cabinetry and appliance solutions. They also have full knowledge of applicable building codes and standards.
Kitchen Designers are able to provide you with sketches, 3-D models, floor plans, and schedules and other relevant documentation. They also have the ability to project manage and co-ordinate all trades people and contractors who are trustworthy and reliable.
