When you remodel a kitchen, it can be easy to get so caught up in cool design trends that you end up making some design mistakes that affect the functionality of your kitchen. The simplest way to avoid kitchen design mistakes is to work with a professional kitchen design expert.
Common Kitchen Design Mistakes
The most common kitchen design mistakes come from not fully understanding the space you are working with. Proper measurements and a plan of action are crucial in kitchen design. At Kitchens Inc., we’ve designed and remodeled countless kitchens. We understand how to carefully plan the project so that you don’t end up with drawers that can’t open, poorly organized storage space, and improperly placed appliances and other necessary kitchen items. The best kitchen design will incorporate function as well as fashion. And a professional can help you find the perfect balance.
The Kitchen Work Triangle
The first thing you have to do when planning your kitchen remodel is to respect the kitchen work triangle. In every kitchen, there is an area that requires careful planning to ensure smooth flow and efficiency. The kitchen work triangle is the placement of the sink, refrigerator, and stove. These three elements will see the most action in your kitchen and should be placed appropriately so that there is easy flow from one to the other.
Proper Storage Space
Another problem area for a kitchen are the countertops and the cabinets. A productive kitchen needs plenty of counter space. To free up your counters, you need to make sure that you design plenty of storage space for all your kitchen utensils and appliances so that they don’t end up taking up precious counter space.
Custom Kitchen Cabinets
Making sure that you have the right storage space, and that all kitchen items are easily accessible requires custom cabinets. The best kitchen design is one that is specifically tailored to your kitchen and your needs. Therefore, custom cabinets will ensure that everything in your kitchen has it’s own space in a convenient location of the kitchen. For instance, having your tea and coffee accessories near the kettle or coffee maker is just one way your kitchen will become a joy to work in.
