Finding Oregon Kitchen Designers

Simply “Hoping something good works out” isn’t enough and you’ll only end up wasting some time in the selection process.

It might be you need to have a lot more counter space for a hobby or fledgling business, you could wish to make the most of garden views, let more natural light into the kitchen, create a breakfasting zone – or any other number of wants and needs. How do you use your kitchen? Are you a expert chef or do you just heat ready made meals? Do you do much entertaining? Do you make preserves and pickles?

Making a list of these needs and taking notes as to how your family use your kitchen – together with ideas of the look and feel you’d like in your kitchen project – will only help in the first meeting with your kitchen designer, assisting the designer to know you as a new design client plus saving your time in any early-stage complimentary consultations.
