Kitchen design – a process that should be done carefully and thoroughly to avoid mistakes. Many people underestimate how much work it involves, but if you want your dream kitchen to become a reality, follow our advice on the pre-planning stages of design.
You can get an idea of the size of the room, which appliances you will need and so on. After that, consider the location of kitchen furniture for this room. Work through all stages before you start making decisions on individual elements.
Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen for the first time or just updating cabinets, sinks, and countertops, it’s important to understand what people are looking for in a remodeled kitchen.
Here are five secrets to designing a kitchen that will make any housewife swoon.
No one enjoys having cabinets filled with gadgets they never use and a pantry full of items they only bought on sale. To avoid this, determine the number of people in your household and what days you cook, then do a rough inventory of your cabinets and pantry. You don’t have to spend an evening counting every can but maybe once a year, take ten minutes to assess what you need.
Once upon a time, every kitchen had a walk-in pantry. People no longer desire canned goods and baking supplies taking up space in their kitchens. If you have an area where the plumbing is already in place, consider turning it into a walk-in pantry. An extra door or two will keep your storage area secure, and if you choose a different color than your cabinets, no one will ever know it’s there.
– Modern Appliances
I hate to break it to you, but unless you live in a 1950s ranch-style house, those avocado-colored appliances are not going to fly with today’s buyers. Sellers like stainless steel or black since they are timeless, and buyers love them because they aren’t outdated.
Kitchen countertops come in all shapes, sizes, and finishes. From stone to laminate to glass, the choices you make will say something about your style. Granite is classic, but if you want a more modern look, consider quartz or for something unique, go with concrete.
– Sink & Faucet
My mother has always said, “You can’t cook without a sink,” and it’s true. Your kitchen faucet is like jewelry for your kitchen so make sure it’s functional and pretty! If you love the look of vintage sinks but don’t want to search for hours in antique shops, check out plumbing supply stores for old-fashioned sinks in new finishes.
