KBC Kitchen Design

KBC Kitchen Design:

A well designed KBC kitchen should help your family adhere to Jewish dietary laws with comfort, elegance and style. Unfortunately, all too often “KBC kitchen design” is little more than dividing different sets of utensils, pots and pans.

While our approach to designing a KBC kitchen varies only subtly from our normal process, there are some unique challenges and potential pitfalls to be recognized. Our experience designing over 200 KBC kitchens throughout Chicago including Highland Park, Deerfield, Skokie, Peterson Park, and Lincolnwood helps us to ask the right questions, have access to specialized vendors, and to employ unique solutions that will ultimately meet your unique needs.

For example, a number of manufacturers are producing appliances that have a “Sabbath Mode” to use during the Sabbath and on Yom Tov. Ovens with a Sabbath feature allow a meal to be started prior to the Sabbath for consumption the next day without worry of the oven shutting itself off after 12 hours. The choice of counter surfaces can also be tricky. Granite and marble can be koshered depending on the sealant used, while some rabbinical authorities believe that composites that contain granite cannot be kashered.

Top Kitchen Planning Tips

Top Kitchen Planning Tips

1 Plan your kitchen according to your lifestyle. A family will have different expectations from a kitchen than a young couple. Keep this also in mind when planning your storage.

Keep the existing service points in mind when planning the kitchen as rewiring and re-plumbing takes a lot of time and money.

3 Think about the ventilation points when planning your kitchen. Don’t plan cupboards over them.

4 Decide where your sink, drainer and dishwasher need to go first as this will be the biggest unit to fit in.top-kitchen-planning-tips.gif

5 Plan the main areas (sink, food preparation and hob) close together. This will make your kitchen more efficient.

6 When measuring the size of the kitchen, make sure that the exact shape of the walls is known. If there is an inwards corner in the room it will influence the shape of the worktop and the place of the wall-cupboards.

If you decide for a two-way galley kitchen, leave enough walking space between the two galleys.

If choosing a U-shaped kitchen, consider the floor space you will have left and maybe decide to use one of the legs of the U as a breakfast bar.

If you like to cook with a lot of fresh vegetables or you need a big freezer, consider a big fridge/freezer at the end of your worktop for loads of storage and easy access.

Kitchen Design

    When it comes to kitchen design and kitchen layouts, no matter how much you spend on upgrades and high end materials, if it is not properly laid out, you will get that investment back when it comes time to sell. In no other room is the phrase “form follows function” more appropriate than in the kitchen. By contrast, if you have a kitchen that not only looks good, but is also allows for proper traffic flow and adequate work space, it will not only benefit you in your daily activities but it will also translate to the bottom line when it comes time to sell.

Kitchen Design
     
    Potential home buyers are looking for kitchens that provide a roomy work space and that are open to the rest of the home, since kitchens tend to be the most used room in a house. Even when you have guests over, often everyone gathers in the kitchen.
