Other considerations include how you use your kitchen. For busy families that prefer quick, casual meals, we may suggest an oversized center island with ample room for dining. For those who like to sit down for a more leisurely meal, space for a table may be more important than an island that allows dining. And for the gourmet cook who frequently entertains at home, an island with an inset cooktop or built-in range will let the chef visit with guests while preparing dinner.
In addition to discussing how you use the space, we will talk about style options. A full kitchen remodel is likely something you won’t do again for a decade or two. With this in mind, you may want to consider going with classic choices for long-lasting items such as cabinetry and countertops, and infusing on-trend touches with things such paint color, cabinet pulls, and tile for the backsplash.
