Inspiration for your kitchen design involves two main areas; your kitchen size and how it will function and the “decorative” area with colors, materials, and components of your kitchen. The best place to start is the footprint of your kitchen. Are you going to open up your space, move walls, move utilities such as electric or plumbing?
