Many people often have difficulty imagining what their new kitchen will look like when it’s completed and even more so when the layout of the cabinetry is significantly different than what’s existing.
One of my suggestions is to “map out” the plan using good old masking tape. I know it sounds silly, but trust me it works!
I have a client in the High Park area of Toronto undergoing a complete kitchen overhaul involving the removal of a structural wall between the now compact kitchen and adjoining dining room. This will allow for a spacious open concept kitchen with more cabinetry as well as a new island with seating.
Sounds great, but how’s this going to… look?
Concerned about the functionality of the proposed layout, I suggested the “masking tape technique”.
Upon visiting them, I found the new kitchen carefully mapped out on the floor of the existing space. Fridge goes here… sink over there… island here…
We walked through the plan and put to rest any concerns and questions that they had about their new imaginary kitchen.
Thanks to a bit of tape, we finalized the design and more importantly, my clients feel very confident that the new plan is perfect for them.
So break out the tape and have some fun!
