Choosing A Kitchen Design For Your Remodel — Autodesk Homestyler

Hi, I’m Nadia Geller Interior Designer for
Homestyler. And I’m going to help you choose a kitchen design for your remodel. It may seem overwhelming at first, but today
we’ll break it down to a few basic elements you need to think about. First off, consider the 4 basic kitchen designs:
like this one with an island… there’s also: Galley, U-shaped and L-shaped. This is your biggest decision right here,
so you should make it first. I always like to visualize my ideas using
design software. There are some good ones on the web now. This one, Homestyler, is a
free, online program that lets you design your kitchen in 2D and 3D so you can get a
pretty good idea of what your kitchen will look like. If you’re stumped for ideas, start
with one from the gallery of pre-made designs. Now, to the appliances. I am going to experiment
with different brands and finishes… and play around with different combinations. Consider your “work triangle” — the space
you cover when going from stove to sink to refrigerator. What is most natural and efficient
for you? Use the program to explore where you want
these appliances. It can really help erase any indecision you may have! Once you’ve decided on a layout and your appliances,
it’s a good time to visit a showroom. Be sure to print out your designs and itemized product
list directly from Homestyler and bring them with you There you can touch and feel the appliances,
surfaces and fixtures and see if they really live up to your expectations. You may feel
differently after you’ve seen the real thing. Above all else, your kitchen should save you
time and effort. With that in mind, take inventory of your
kitchen’s appliances and tools. Hanging pots and pans from above can be a
great space saver, but if you’re on the short side and you cook a lot, this may not be a
good solution. Think of the things you use most and make
sure they’re easy to get to. And storage: make sure you have a place for
everything. Are you okay with the coffee maker out on the counter all day, or do you want
an appliance garage for it? Once you’ve made your major decisions, you
can print out your designs and make some notes on them. That way you can remember why you
liked or disliked a particular finish or appliance. And remember to share your designs with friends
for feedback. Now you’re on your way to a fabulous new kitchen
that suits you and your family perfectly. I’m Nadia Geller. To start designing your
dream kitchen today, go to
