Kitchens are quickly becoming the most important area in the home, and now garners as much focus in home inspections as the bed or living room traditionally do. Spurring this heightened attention that the kitchen now gets, has been the renovation revolution on television, with famous shows almost solely devoted to both new and old renovations of the home.
With all that in mind, you’re probably thinking that now is the right time to start conceptualising your very own kitchen design ideas, but with so much to consider, where do you actually start? Below, we’ve listed a few key tips and areas to look at when planning kitchen renovations. Each of these tips will help you, to not only be able to move ahead quicker, but to get a better idea of how you want your area to look.
Arguably the most important aspect of any design, always keep in mind that your kitchen renovation will be for you and your family. This idea of personalisation is also more involved than just what colours everyone likes. Consider how you work in the area, where you prefer your white goods to be placed, and even smaller details, such as where you stack your plates after use.
Dining room nearby?
For those of us who are lucky to have a large dining area attached to the kitchen for everyone to enjoy, you may wish to consider combining both to create one large feature area. A greater cooking and dining area is high on the wishlist of thousands of potential homebuyers, offering a unique area for special occasions and large gatherings. An open floor plan, or an island bench, tend to work best in creating this important area.
Many people often neglect the impact that a carefully considered lighting system can provide for their new kitchen. Adequate lighting is essential, as it can ensure that your work is made easier, as well as perfectly showcase every fine detail of the beauty of your newly renovated kitchen. Try to picture which type of lighting will work best for you, then seek to tie that in with any particular style of lighting or lamp shades that you prefer.
Own the process
This is your kitchen, being moulded in your image, so don’t be afraid to take the reigns of the design! Write down everything that you want to change in your new design, and edit it so that it complies with your budget, and any other constraints that there may be.
