Many of us spend hours preparing and cooking meals but neglect the kitchen because it’s not our favorite room. It takes a lot of planning, especially early on, when you’re just getting started. It is not uncommon for a lot of homeowners to put off updating their kitchen because they think it’ll be too difficult or costly. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be.
Your kitchen is probably one of the most used rooms in your house. The appliances you have in your current kitchen might make up the largest part of your house. So you want to make sure that the appliances you purchase will fit into your current layout. The way to do this is by designing your kitchen with an efficient kitchen layout. First we need to look at the triangle.
The kitchen island is the centerpiece of your new kitchen design. It is what gives your kitchen character and makes it a highly functional space. An island can serve as a breakfast nook, a dining area, or a work station for those late night snacks. You don’t have to use it for everything. In fact, you should try to keep it to a minimum so that you save room for other items in your kitchen.
Creating a kitchen design built around a designer’s concept of a home is pretty easy. You can start by looking through magazines and catalogs of different kitchen models to get some inspiration. From there you can simply start drawing your kitchen island and kitchen counter. This gives you a good starting point for your remodel.
One of the first things you need to plan for when you’re designing a new kitchen space is how to increase your counter space. If you don’t have much counter space at all you could try adding more of it, or finding creative ways to hide the existing space you do have. One of the most popular ways of hiding unused space is by putting an island counter in the middle of your room.
