Kitchen Design Questions (+ Answers)

Published on:


written by:

Carrie Barker


This episode is a VERY informal kitchen design questions (and answers) session I had with Anne-Marie Klobe, Kitchen Designer.

This Q+A session was not intended for my podcast but rather for clients in my private ‘Before You Build’ program.

However, there are SO many golden nuggets of kitchen design advice that I wanted to share this Q+A sesh with all of you :).

The sound quality isn’t my usual standard, and the call is very informal, BUT the tips are SO worth listening to!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The first thing to do BEFORE you design your kitchen
  • The kitchen triangle rule
  • Tips for kitchen design elements to make your life easier
  • The biggest consideration for designing your kitchen
  • Modular cabinets, semi-custom cabinets, custom cabinets
  • and more!

Psst … you might also enjoy episode 37, ‘9 Tips for Designing a Functional Kitchen’.

I designed my own custom home from the ground up, inside and out. A home that is cozy, comfy, laid out perfectly for the way my family lives, and makes us happy every single day. Oh, and did I mention I did this all without blowing the budget?! 

Yep, it’s true. I’ve been there, done that, and actually lived through it … and you will too. Pinkie promise!
