Designing for Your Lifestyle:
How a Kitchen Designer Can Create Your Perfect Space

Whether you’re an avid cook, a busy professional, or a big family, a kitchen designer tailors every aspect of the design to suit your specific needs and preferences, so your kitchen works for you!

 

With kitchen remodeling, your designer will optimize the layout, organization, and storage capacity while incorporating specialized features and design elements that enhance your experience. Dean Cabinetry kitchen designers take pride in bringing joy and functionality to the heart of your home!

Kitchen Designers Assess Your Needs and Wants

When it comes to remodeling projects, your kitchen designer will take the time to understand how you currently use your kitchen and what your dream kitchen will enable you to do.

 

If your hobby is baking, a kitchen island with a large quartz countertop to work on and a custom storage space for easy access to your KithenAid mixer could be ideal for you.

 

Your designer will ask you many questions about your favorite appliances and utensils, the habits of other household members, and your design preferences to uncover the best layout, storage solutions, and design style for you within your budget. 

 

Dean Cabinetry kitchen designers’ extensive experience will not only help you achieve your dream kitchen, but may also help you improve upon it. Your kitchen designer may make suggestions you didn’t know to ask for. It’s the designer’s job to know what will and will not work within your layout and budget constraints.

 

They can pull from the myriad of past professional designs to offer unique solutions, like a peninsula instead of an island in a smaller space, or the addition of a beverage area for the coffee lovers in the home.

Collaborating with Your Kitchen Designer

We work closely with our clients, ensuring a collaborative approach to reaching your final design and seamlessly transitioning into the installation phase. Through open and transparent communication, we actively listen to your ideas, preferences, and concerns, allowing us to create a design that truly reflects your vision.

 

Our experienced designers use their knowledge and skills to deal with any issues that might come up during the process. To communicate effectively, it’s essential to express your needs and expectations clearly, so we can understand your lifestyle and what your space needs.

 

It’s also important to keep the lines of communication open by providing feedback on time and sharing any concerns or changes you want along the way. Plus, trust in our expertise and experience. We’ll help you make design choices that fit your unique style. This teamwork ensures a smoother and more successful design process.

Custom Kitchen Maintenance

Tips for your remodeled kitchen looking and functioning at its best: 

 

  • Clean up spills and messes immediately to prevent staining or damage.
  • Regularly wipe down surfaces, cabinets, and appliances to keep them looking their best.
  • Follow manufacturer instructions for cleaning and maintaining appliances.
  • Avoid placing hot items directly on countertops and use trivets or pot holders.
  • Refresh your space periodically with new decor or minor updates to keep it looking fresh and functional.

Cleaning Your Dream Kitchen

General best practices for any type of cabinet cleaning:

 

  • Always use gentle cleaning solutions and soaps.
  • Make sure to not use steel wool, abrasive cloths, abrasive sponges, or scrubbers, because they may scratch the wood and/or the painted finish on your cabinets.
  • A mixture of mild dish soap and warm water is great for removing grease and grime. Other, stronger products are not usually necessary.
  • Avoid soaking wood in water, as it may lead to rotting, discoloration, or water damage.
