In case you aren't already convinced
The regulars on this forum have FAR more knowledge about how to design a functional kitchen than your average builder/KD - at least where I live.
I looked at real estate listings the other day, just to look at kitchen pictures. I started at the top - most expensive - meaning the homes were 3000 to 4000 sq ft or more, mostly less than 10 years old, some brand new.
Some of the kitchens I saw made me cry. Horrible flow; a half mile from sink to stove; one had all appliances crammed into a tiny corner, with a huge 2-level island 10 feet away. I don't think any had all drawers; few had cabinets to the ceiling (apparently staggered uppers are very popular here). Several had downdraft vented stoves on tiny islands.
I felt very smart about the functionality of my recent little kitchen remodel, and so grateful that this community exists to help people avoid so many of the mistakes I saw in those RE listings!
Keep up the good work, folks!
