So, it’s finally time to remodel your kitchen; congratulations! It’s a project that’s been a long time coming, and with all of your budgeting and planning, you’ve certainly earned it. But now that you’ve decided that it’s time to begin transforming the space, you may be asking yourself, HOW you want to transform the space? Do you go for crisp and timeless white cabinets or would a darker wood tone better compliment your decor? Are stainless steel appliances the way to go, or is there a better alternative? Would granite countertops be the perfect marriage of look and functionality?
The possibilities truly are endless when it comes to making decisions like this for your renovation; you can decide whether or not these possibilities excite you or overwhelm you. But if you take a few helpful hints from professionals, we have a feeling you’ll thoroughly enjoy your upcoming kitchen remodel. Here are a few expert tips to keep in mind when it comes to renovating your kitchen.
Put Functionality First
When renovating your kitchen, you must always think about HOW you use your kitchen and the items in it, and what your remodel can do to enhance the functionality of the space. For example, doesn’t it make sense to have your silverware and dishware close to the new dishwasher you are installing? Wouldn’t it be easy to have your expanded pantry near Tupperware and plastic containers for easy storage? How you answer these questions will greatly determine the direction of your remodel.
Make Countertops a Priority
Those who cook frequently, according to Better Homes and Gardens, will need more counter space around the oven and around the sink. If cooking isn’t exactly your fortay, you can probably get away with less functional counter space. Have kids in the house? Two countertop heights is a fun way to get them to interact with meal preparation.
Have Corners Work for You
Cabinet corners don’t have to be wasted space. Instead, This Old House suggests installing a half-moon Lazy Susan, double sliding shelves, or pull-out shelves to make the most out of every inch of your new kitchen.
Direct Movement in the Space
According to Better Homes and Gardens, it’s best to keep the cooktop out of high-traffic areas if you have small children frequently in the house. It’s also a great idea to make the refrigerator accessible to those preparing the meal or simply visiting the kitchen to get a quick snack.
