At German Kitchen Center, our kitchen designers work extensively to help you create a kitchen that is not only luxurious but suits you and your entire family’s needs. Whether you are a parent, expert culinarian or both, it is essential to have a kitchen that not only functions well but looks great.
Tip Number 1: Start with a layout that makes sense to you.
Any work station, whether an oven or a kitchen work area—should be set up to accommodate the specific details of the work to be performed.
Every kitchen needs a sink, a refrigerator and a cooktop. Creating the traditional “working triangle” is a more conventional approach, which says it’s best to spread out the three main appliances as much as possible to allow for optimal cooking room. This is ideal for a family that needs room for the multiple activities going on in the kitchen – such as homework & meal prep.

On the other hand, if you are a master chef or just have a passion for cooking it is more practical to have a tighter working station which includes having a tighter configuration so that all of your appliances are closely within reach. Less walking back and forth makes food preparation both convenient and fast. When you are working more efficiently, it only makes sense to make the working triangle closer to the cook so everything can be accessed easily. Our kitchen designers will help you realize which design will fit your needs.
Tip Number 2: Decide whether you want a separate sitting area or a counter area with stools.
The kitchen is considered the heart of the home. Many kitchens today are a central open space which includes a bar area with stools. This can be beneficial if you want your kitchen to be the central hub of your home. Whether you have a large family or enjoy entertaining in the kitchen this can be a great asset. Having bar stools at your countertop can make it easier to communicate with friends and family while being conveniently in your kitchen cooking and prepping meals.
While many prefer bar stools, others opt for the separate dining room area for their home. If you are an avid cook, it may be easier to have friends and family away from the kitchen but still close enough to communicate. We all love having friends and family over, but some people prefer not to have others in their cooking space. In that case, having a separate dining area would be the best choice for you. Our kitchen designers can build you a custom table that accents your kitchen to perfection.
Tip Number 3: You need to love how your kitchen looks and feels.
The aesthetic approach to kitchens today is that they should blend seamlessly into the home and should look just as nice as, or nicer than, any other furniture piece. With the array of colors and styles our kitchen designers can help you choose from, it is not hard to find the right combination of pieces to blend into your home.
Modern kitchen design is integrated and hides the appliances so that they would blend into the kitchen cabinetry. Paneled dishwashers and refrigerators cannot be seen and even ovens can be tucked away behind sliding door mechanisms. Regardless what innovative technology you use in your kitchen, remember it needs to be practical for you and your home.
If you love how your kitchen looks and you feel that the kitchen is inviting you to cook, entertain and hang out – that means the kitchen was designed successfully to fit your needs.
