- Should I consider high end materials?
- What main colors and theme will I want to use for my kitchen?
- Will I be cooking a lot here? Or will just be heating a lot of frozen items in the microwave?
- How many cooks stay in the house?
- Is having an island in my kitchen more functional for me?

- Should drawer slides be considered?
- What type of sink will I put in my kitchen? Will it match the overall theme?
- How tall do I want my counters to be?
- How high should my cabinets be?
- Is my counter top durable? Scratch free? Presentable? Is it safe for children when they around and hit the edges?
- Is my main focus for the kitchen just for aesthetics or will I actually need to use the area?
