At times when you don't want to undertake your kitchen remodel as a solo project, it is best to call in the professionals. Working with someone who knows more about kitchens than you can be advantageous. A certified kitchen designer, remodeler or contractor has more knowledge about the specifics of kitchens and all the products and features that go with. He or she is someone you can approach for advice and assistance. A good kitchen designer should listen to you and should not impose his or her own style choices on your kitchen. What's more, he or she should understand your vision of an ideal kitchen and will help you fulfil it.
Go to shows! I've worked in the kitchen industry for years and yet, nearly every show I go to shows me some new kitchen innovation that I had never previously imagined. Many of the people we speak to talk of having viewed a kitchen showroom, picking a really nice kitchen to have installed, only to see their dream kitchen at the same or lesser price elsewhere. Shopping around and doing your research is important; new innovations appear first at shows, i.e. the Ideal Home Exhibition, 100% Design and the Grand Designs road show. When they do, it takes a while before they are widely publicised and so going to shows is the best way to find out about new kitchen innovations. This is also particularly good, because many exhibitors will sell off their display items for less than the retail price to avoid carting them back to their warehouses and many others provide discounts to people who wish to get quotes from their stands.
In the corners of the kitchen, install cabinets at 45 degrees to the adjoining cabinets rather than a \"blind\" cabinet or \"lazy susan\". While a 45 degree cabinet has some dead space, it utilizes more space than a \"lazy susan\", mainly because the cabinet shelves and drawers are square, and a \"lazy susan\" is round.
