Before anything else, think about how you use your kitchen. When it comes to kitchen design, less is more. You want your layout to promote efficiency because when you are cooking, you aren’t going to want to carry a hot pan an unnecessary 10 feet. Just because you have the space to place the kitchen island farther from the countertop doesn’t mean you should. This will only serve to make cooking and cleaning more of a pain for you. Of course, you want your kitchen to have enough space for people to gather, but you should also consider practicality. A popular rule in kitchen design is the “working triangle.” This means that the lines between the fridge, sink, and stovetop should form an equilateral triangle. These are the three points in the kitchen that you will visit the most often while making a meal.
Light It Up
One of the most important aspects to consider when remodeling your kitchen is the lighting. In the kitchen, you need it to bright enough that you can cook, but you also don’t want it to be so bright that it feels like you are in a doctor’s office. You can create a bright light that is still beautiful by installing surface-mounted fixtures on the ceiling in a grid. Additionally, you can add to the decoration of your kitchen by installing hanging lights over your kitchen island. Finally, don’t forget about the fact that your cabinets will likely block some of the light in your kitchen. Therefore, you should also install lights underneath the cabinets.
Consider Your Cabinets
Your cabinets are not only essential for storage, they are a simple way to add personality and style to your home. Therefore, they should make your cooking more efficient while still being beautiful. Some people will forgo cabinet doors entirely to show off their lovely collection of dishes, which also makes it easier to grab dishes and go. If you prefer to have cabinets, there is a wide selection of colors and styles from which you can choose; just don’t forget to match them with your kitchen countertops! Regardless of whether you go with cabinet doors or not, just make sure your cabinets can accommodate all of your dishes. Don’t forget a couple of drawers in your lower cabinet space for large pots and pans for greatest ease of access!
