So this past week or so I've spent in front of my computer. Not blogging, not surfing, not gaming, but designing ;) ... designing a kitchen :) ... the Matawatchan kitchen :D !! I’m using the Home Designer software package that I posted about here. I am finding it fairly easy to use and it’s library of fixtures, appliances, material, paint, furniture etc… is quite extensive.
It has been going great but ….wow, there is so much to consider when you sit down to design a kitchen.
- where will the appliances go
- where do they best fit
- how will the traffic flow
- what does the work triangle look like
- is there enough storage
- where does the sink go
- how much space do you need between cabinets
- how big should an island be
- how does it all work in a small open concept main floor of a 125 year old log home
And I haven’t even looked at the finishes yet !
But...I am nothing if not driven by a challenge so I'm dusting off the text-books and surfing the net and blogosphere ... kitchen design here I come.
Here are some inspiration photos I’ve been collecting care of Houzz. Hope you enjoy! As for me – it’s back to my kitchen planning!!!
