Super Size My Kitchen

Kitchen remodeling & design for larger families

by Glen Ferguson 

The growing number of extended families and working parents often cook in volume, freezing meals for quick preparation during the week. This trend, in addition to the popularity of cooking shows, has led to an increase in the purchase of large appliances and a need for equally large cabinets to store bulk groceries, bottled water, recycle bins, a trash receptor, compactor, or both. The challenge arises when the volume of items in the kitchen has increased considerably while the size of the kitchen has remained the same.

It takes an experienced kitchen designer to accommodate the super-sized appliances that are becoming popular with today's consumers. Kitchens that include 48" range tops and Sub-Zero type custom refrigerators force designers to creatively expand an existing kitchen to accommodate these commercial-size appliances. A truly experienced kitchen designer can fit many accessories in a small physical space and is not afraid to move walls or expand the kitchen into an adjacent room's space for a better floor plan.

The sophisticated kitchen designer warns clients that when investing in high-end appliances, they should surround them with similar cabinetry. Many of today's plans include expanding the kitchen into other rooms. Clients are matching the high-end look of their new appliances with upgraded kitchen detailing like concrete and stainless steel countertops, custom molding, and glazed or distressed doors. This type of upgrade goes a long way toward boosting a home's resale value.

The Kitchen Warehouse in L.A. has five professional designers. To find out what your design options are, you can visit their showroom with several kitchens on display and LA's largest cabinet selection at 3716 W.
