Kitchen Design in Palm Beach Gardens
Originally cattle ranches and pine forests, with swampland further west, the land that became Palm Beach Gardens has an outdoorsy history. It is not surprising then that so many successful sportsmen and women – from Rory McIlroy to the Williams sisters – have made it their home. The Gardens is known as the Golf Capital of the World, and The Professional Golfers’ Association of America has its headquarters in the city.
To maintain their peak performance, world class athletes know the importance of eating correctly. Even with an impressive array of restaurants and eateries along Northlake Boulevard and Broadway, nothing beats your own kitchen. It is the best place to find a meal fulfilling all your dietary requirements.
While each body has specific requirements, there are proven basics that have stood the test of time. The same is true when it comes to kitchen design.
Recipe for success
Just as quality ingredients form the foundation of a healthy diet, so the foundation of your kitchen lies in the quality of your kitchen cabinetry. Custom designed cabinetry, meticulously crafted to exceptional standards will surpass numerous fads as they come and go.
An athlete’s diet can seem bland. By adding a dash of your favorite flavors, the whole dish takes on a whole new dimension. In the design of your kitchen, our designers can assist you to select flooring, hardware, and decorative details to spice things up in a way that reflects you and your lifestyle. Rest assured that you will be getting a professional and personalized service right from the start.
Schrapper’s Fine Cabinetry, Inc. knows every possible variation on the recipes needed to create beautiful kitchens. With us, the best materials, craftsmanship and design ideas come together to make the kitchen of your dreams. We understand that one of the most important things about building great kitchens, is how you use the room – the open spaces of your kitchen are every bit as important as the counters and cabinetry. When working with you to design your kitchen, we carefully consider the following layout ideas.
The kitchen is one room in the house where there tends to be a high level of traffic, especially at mealtimes. A good layout should be aimed at reducing traffic and constraints on movement. Focus on creating clear zones for circulation and meal preparation.
Making comfortable distances between main fixtures
The different elements of your kitchen need to be laid out in a logical sequence so that you can move comfortably from one to the other while going about your various tasks. For example, you don’t want the stove across the room from the sink, or the fridge too far away from the oven. Think about how you move and work in the kitchen and design your layout to fit your habits.
Building around the sink
A lot of designers will often place the sink first and then build out from there. No matter what we do in the kitchen, we always end up back at the sink because every task ends in a dish or utensil that needs washing. Every meal is ended with a round of dish washing. Even though we now revert to dishwashers for this task, the sink can still be a good primary design element. So place the sink first – perhaps in front of window, for example – and then add the rest of the elements.
Focus on vertical storage
Depending on how much wall space you have to work with, a focus on vertical storage will help you to create a kitchen that is more efficient and better equipped with much needed cupboard space. With storage walls, you can incorporate a pantry, space for small appliances and other accessories, china or a broom closet. Open shelves, wall hooks and overhead pot racks will help you save space too.
