What to watch out for when remodeling your kitchen?
We all make mistakes and learn from them. However, when it comes to projects as serious as kitchen remodeling you may want to limit the mistakes to the minimum. That’s why the first thing to consider is your workflow: make sure that the sink, stove, and refrigerator are placed in efficient locations relative to each other. It’s usually best to think of these as a ‘work triangle’.
Moreover, keep in mind your counter space when planning the remodeling. Don’t ever settle for less or even use decorative corbels for more working space. Also, don’t forget to plan the kitchen accordingly to your lifestyle and needs. Consider aspects like socializing with family or how often do you cook when choosing the best kitchen design. Most importantly, though, do not forget about your finances! Decide what are the crucial features for your kitchen remodel and create your budget accordingly.
Don’t forget the big picture
All the elements in your kitchen, from cabinets and gadgets to flooring and backsplash, should tie together to form the best kitchen design. That’s why it is best to choose your appliances firstly – not lastly. Why? Because cabinets and countertops come in a variety much wider than refrigerators and dishwashers. Cabinets themselves should be strong and go all the way to the ceiling to avoid the need of dusting their tops.
Also, consider getting more shallow versions, e.g. 18”, to widen the area of motion. It’s especially smart for small kitchens, where it is hard to leave space to breathe. But most importantly remember to have fun and possibly reflect it in your kitchen. How about a pot rack in the shape of a wagon wheel? Superior Home Remodelling Contractors can arrange that for you!
