Wood and Wood Finish _ You can select your online kitchen design in a range of woods, typically oak, maple or cherry, either natural or tinted with a range of wood stains. One firm offers 21 wood effects, 11 different glazed finishes and if you prefer your kitchen cabinets to be painted, seven different colors of paint. These can be mixed of course, and you could have white painted wall units with light oak floor cabinets.
The place to start when you are designing your dream kitchen is with a dimensional diagram of your kitchen space. On a large piece of graph paper, draw the outline of the kitchen space, including any doors or windows that you will have work around while you design your kitchen. Accurately mark where your plumbing and electrical supplies are located. You can move plumbing and electrical supply points, but this involves more time and money, and it is always easier to accommodate existing service supplies into your design, if practical.
