in detail: space planning in the kitchen

July 7, 2009

How do you make sure a remodeled kitchen is more efficient and works better than the original? Space planning!

Understanding how you use your kitchen is key. It’s important to know what your daily routine is.

With an interview, we can help you determine where the key areas are for improvement and what is working for you, we will define the existing traffic patterns, and we will find out what is structurally needed and what can be changed. 

After the initial interview, we’ll take all the info to the drawing board and come up with some different plans on how to solve the problems.

A bubble diagram helps to define what activites go on in each space and where the traffic patterns are. You can see an example of a bubble diagram we did for a client who was remodeling their kitchen below.

Once we have decided where the cabinets will go, we go through the hauthaus kitchen checklist with the homeowner. This helps us make sure that there is room in the cabinets for everything. Next, we will draw up the cabinet elevations and make notes that say where certain items will be stored. You can see an example below.

After the home owner signs off on the drawings, it’s off to the cabinet maker!

Hauthaus ensures that you’ll love your end result; which is why we take these thorough steps during the concept and planning stages. We strive to make each project uniquely and delightfully yours!
