Decisions you make about your kitchen depend upon your current and future needs, your lifestytle, your interests and the structural limitations of the house. A well-designed kitchen should be functional and aesthetically pleasing. It should harmonize with other areas of the house for a consistent appearance. The materials and furnishings you choose affect the appearance, character, and functionality of the kitchen. In addition, kitchen design can have a major impact on the energy system of the whole house.
This publication provides information to help you make those decisions as you build or remodel your kitchen.
