Planning a kitchen design like also How To Design a Kitchen Island, whether a remodel or new construction can be a Herculean task filled with many more decisions than you ever thought possible. To complicate matters, people sometimes buy into myths about kitchen planning that can cost you the look or function you really desire. Here are some common misconceptions on kitchen design and planning.

The dishwasher location: Conventional wisdom says if you are right handed then it belongs on the right side of the sink. Simple,right? Wrong! It can be on either side but most people become used to it on one side or the other and that is just preference. I like to put it where it works best for the design and accessibility to storage. And while on the subject, please disregard the raised dishwasher idea that came and went as fast as platform sneakers. Raising a dishwasher sounds good in theory but think about how silly it would look and function having the counter right next to your sink raised 6 inches or so? Sort of like, hmmm, platform sneakers!

The trash pullout next to the sink: If you are dreaming of a well appointed kitchen, place this nifty feature high on your list of "must haves". But, don't be locked into placing it by the sink which is the default location of most designers and architects. Place it where you are doing the most prep work...where you need to swoosh scraps and debris. A bonus is to put it close enough for other people to access it without bothering the cook's flow of work.

Marble counters won't work: Yes, heavy sigh,it is more maintenance than some other materials. So is a foreign import car. Does not keep people away from them does it? Marble has been around for centuries and is a classic choice. It is a beautiful, organic and living material than can be used in kitchens or bathrooms.Honed is best for not showing acidic etching and yes, it does need to be resealed periodically. And that is as easy as wiping down your tops after a meal. Don't be a wimp. If you love it, use it.
