Kitchen Myth's: Part 3

Myth: Im not going to have any clutter in my new kitchen.

Fact: One homeowner recently ripped out her crowded pantry to make room for a lovely butler's pantry area with glass front cabinets. Now she doesnt have a pantryand no place to store everyday dry goods and cereals. She thought she could adapt, but how can she when theres insufficient storage space?

Whether we like it or not, life is messyin kitchens both new and old. Thats why adequate space to store it is essential. One of the most common mistakes among homeowners is that they want kitchens that open into other rooms, and they dont plan any upper storage for china and glassware. There needs to be a balance between function and style.


Myth: Bigger is always better

Fact: Like so many homeowners, Ms. Doe finally got a massive kitchen for entertaining, but now she walks endlessly from one appliance to another. This is one mistake that homeowners have to live with for a long time, since kitchen renovations are done only once every 15 years or so. While youre still in the planning stages, consider adding a task or bar sink next to your refrigerator, on a central island or near your cooktop to reduce the need to cross those distance. Because kitchens are such a large investment and not remodeled very often, it's important to choose quality over quantity.

Next time we will explore some other kitchen myth's. If you have any you would like added to the list or questions regarding some we have already discussed, don't hesitate to contact me at
