A Kitchen Face Lift vs. a Personalized Design
What is the difference between a kitchen face lift and a custom, personalized design? A kitchen face lift typically includes changing the color of cabinetry and adding a new backsplash, countertops or appliances. An update improves the look of a kitchen but not your lifestyle. A kitchen designed by an interior designer is a space that suits your needs, improves the kitchen’s relationship with adjacent rooms, and enhances the way you live.
Professional designers are able to see possibilities in your space that are not evident without experience and expertise. We start by asking you a series of questions that help us get to the core of how you want to live in your new kitchen. Innovative space planning is one of the most significant features that distinguishes a designer kitchen. A designer helps determine where walls can be removed or space planning improved within the existing space to dramatically enhance the kitchen’s relationship with adjacent rooms, along with its visual appeal and functionality. Elements of a personalized kitchen can include:
- Improved storage capacity
- Better planned working surfaces
- More efficiency while cooking and entertaining
- Optimal circulation between the kitchen and outdoor living areas and the kitchen and other areas of your home
- Space planned to encourage family gatherings
- Innovative space for a home office
- Dedicated areas for beloved pets to eat or rest
While there is nothing wrong with a face lift, it’s important to recognize how it differs from a kitchen designed just for you!
