Main Line Kitchen Design Trends Blog

Main Line Kitchen Design has over 30 contractors that we recommend to our customers free of charge.

These general contractors take over the day to day responsibilities of the renovation project once the construction work begins. By recommending contractors and not subbing out to them, as most kitchen showrooms and cabinet dealers do, Main Line Kitchen Design’s clients save 20 to 30% on their construction costs.

The most important part of a good kitchen designer’s job is to provide customers with constructive appraisals of the good and the bad features for any design they are considering. Because kitchen designers sell the cabinets, we have the added responsibility of ensuring that what we sell actually works and fits. This experience and knowledge frequently saves customers from devastating disappointment and design errors like mis-sized clearance spaces, and fewer people able to sit at a kitchen table or an island. These errors routinely appear in drawings by architects.

Paul talks to Olga who called in previously to get advice on her kitchen design. Olga talks about her bread making and gets Paul’s help getting the appliances and the countertop she needs worked into her kitchen design. Paul explains why you shouldn’t use a particular design feature just because you like it. Design elements and appliances need to work well in the design and fit. Olga’s original design, seen below, was too tight and left her without a kitchen table. In the revised kitchen design seating is comfortable and spaces actually work.

Paul talks with Michael who has a kitchen design just a little too tight. Or as Paul says “ten pounds of sausage in an eight pound wrapper.” Paul also talks about The IKEA Effect which is a common phycological delusion that all kitchen designers must face daily from their customers.

I often see blogs and magazine articles predicting bold kitchen design trends. The reality of the last ten years has been that white shaker style cabinetry has remained the most purchased style cabinet.

Senior Designer Lauren Sciarra

A designer who is both an interior designer and a kitchen designer, is a rare find for homeowners who are renovating their kitchen. This is because each type of ‘designer’ brings different skillsets to the project.    The first step in understanding this value is to understand the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator. Interior designers complete a four […]

Main Line Kitchen Design can but usually doesn’t act as a Design and Build company. While we are capable of supervising a kitchen renovation, we believe that kitchen renovations run smoothly and are the best value to the client when the experts in each part of a complex renovation focus on their area of expertise.
