Remodeling Ideas for the Kitchen

So you’re on the verge of designing your kitchen, and you need the low-down. Here’s a really quick how-to guide for designing your kitchen.

Work within your budget.

Money rules when it comes to designing your kitchen. You may be surprised at how much money you can spend in a 15 x 20 space (or whatever size your kitchen happens to be). Be sure to plan way ahead, be prepared for surprises, and don’t go too far into debt.

Storage and countertop space is important.

There are two things you’ll almost always want more of in a kitchen: storage space and countertop. Reminding yourself of this as you dream, draw, and get ideas will be helpful for a finished product that you’ll enjoy.

Think triangle.

The Work Triangle is a key feature of kitchen planning. The Work Triangle is composed of the sink, the refrigerator, and the oven range. These are the three main features of cooking activity. Therefore, these three components should be carefully situated in such a way that they are relatively close to one another, and form a triangle.

Go for beauty and functionality.

A kitchen should combine the best of aesthetics and usefulness. Remember that a kitchen isn’t just for looking at. Therefore, function needs to be considered. On the other hand, since you’ll probably be spending a good deal of time in the kitchen, it should be a place that is attractive and enjoyable.
