Kitchen Planning


Visualize your layout.

Because every personality and every home are different it’s important to think about what you need in your new kitchen before starting the design process. For example, are you looking to create a space for your family to gather, or are you looking to optimize a compact kitchen?

Prioritizing the goals of your project will save you a lot of time and frustration in the long run.

Customize your space.

Organization and countertop space are the keys to every working kitchen. You need to allot enough space for prepping, cooking and quick accessibility of your kitchen gadgets and utensils. Reflect on how you use your current kitchen, and where you can add in cabinet features to make your daily routine easier.

Map out your space.

Now that you’ve taken some time to think over your requirements for your new kitchen, we’ll need you to gather information about your current kitchen. Measure the length of each wall in the room. Be sure to note the locations, widths and height of doors, windows and electrical outlets as you move around your kitchen. For more detailed directions, check out our blog post on how to measure your kitchen.

It’s very important that these measurements are as accurate as possible. In order to make the process easier for you we’ve created a layout grid to record your dimensions.

Visit an official Founder's Choice showroom.

Since you will want your kitchen to be beautiful as well as functional we encourage you to spend some time in your local Founder’s Choice showroom looking at our displays. In our showrooms you will find an extensive range of cabinet materials, colors, and finishes available for you to choose from.
