Kitchen Design Terminology

I was going to start a list on here for the sort of terms we use in kitchen design, and have this post as a resource for the terms and definitions. But I thought I'd have a look online first to see what's already out there. I come across this write up that seems to have most of the major ones put into layman's terms. I did notice there were a few missing off it but this was the most complete list I could find.

I do think articles like this are vitally important because it is so common for people not to actually understand these kitchen terms, and they'll often feel stupid for asking. So places like this save all that and help people truly understand what is being said by their kitchen designer.

When a customer understands their kitchen designer, you are that much closer to two things:

  1. A project that runs smoothly
  2. A happy customer

Both of which are things I think every kitchen designer worldwide desires.

So if you're looking for a quick resource of terms and phrases kitchen designers use, check out the page.

There is fairly good use of imagery on this one too so if there is anything you don't understand from the text, the image are there to support you as well.

At the end of the article the author does mention that if there are any terms missing you can contact them on facebook to get them included, so if there is something specific that you don't understand, it might be worth asking them there.
