Like mother, like daughter, right? What 3-year-old doesn’t watch mommy in the kitchen and dream of her own pint-size version. Now add to equation that mommy is a kitchen designer and the standards just got a little higher. The internet did not disappoint. Play kitchens have really upgraded since I was a little girl. Current versions include all the amenities of real kitchens. “Stainless” finishes, recycling bins, ironing centers and even “smart” options like a place for your tablet are all out there.
Some of the questions I considered when selecting my daughter’s kitchen were the same questions I ask of my clients. What style do you like? Traditional, vintage, contemporary or a combination. Color, materials, size, storage options; all important factors to consider. There are so many choices, how do I decide? No, how do we decide? Factor in that I’m negotiating with a 3-year-old. Limiting her choices to two seemed more appropriate.
Enlisting the help of a professional kitchen designer can really make the process of designing your dream kitchen much more enjoyable. Designers guide clients through the process by showing them a myriad of options and helping them narrow down the choices. In the end the kitchen should reflect the lifestyle and personality of the homeowner. Maybe poppy red is not your thing but for Ella it is truly her dream kitchen.
