Welcome to the third in our series of “A Kitchen For:” where we are featuring a few of our kitchens and the lifestyles of the owners who now enjoy them. As an amateur chef, recipe tester for Cooks Illustrated, and kitchen remodeler, I personally appreciate this kitchen made for a chef. Your lifestyle should dictate the choices you make when designing and remodeling a new kitchen, but I think you’ll agree that there are many features of this kitchen that make it a winner. First, there is a ton of counter space for prepping and plating, many burners and ovens for multiple-pan cooking, and tons of cabinet space…
The kitchen features industrial-grade appliances and two sinks at key pivot points make life simple. Plus, I love that the island has bar stools where people can gather because gathering in the kitchen as the heart of the home is never more true than when in the kitchen of a chef.
We left the doors off of these rolling shelves to make access to cookware even that much easier.
Check back for our next blog in the series and make sure to catch up with the first two, “A Kitchen for: Kids” and “A Kitchen for: Baking“…and if you just want to gaze at some beautiful kitchen photos, click here.
Next to the cost of a kitchen remodel, one of the most popular questions we get in our kitchen showroom is “How long does the kitchen remodel process usually take?” The short answer for us is 10-12 weeks, but that varies with the scope of the individual project in addition to a few other variables. It is everyone’s hope that the project runs smoothly without any delays, but, with so many moving parts, we expect some surprises and have learned to deal with them efficiently.
For example, we might get into a wall and find that there has been damage caused by leaky pipes or unwanted visitors (such as termites). But, no matter the exact situation, we at Kitchen Design Concepts pride ourselves on open and regular communication with our clients so that together we make the right decisions in a timely manner to keep the project humming along.
The basic kitchen remodel process consists of the steps below, however, there are many activities that occur at each step, especially in the construction/installation phase. For a more detailed explanation of what occurs at each step in the process, our website is a great source for inspiration and education.
