Ideas Brainstorm: The best approach to begin with is to look around, take note of what you like in your current kitchen, what you do not like and look at other kitchens. You can visit show rooms, flick through magazines, and visit other peoples homes or research online. Gather as much information as you can, and search for as many ideas as you can. Start a scrapbook or spreadsheet and start a budget too. Do not be afraid to really challenge your ideas and expectations. After all, the kitchen is such an important part of the house and you also want to make sure you use your money wisely.
Layout Ideas: During the design stage, think about practicality too. A common idea often talked about when it comes to kitchen design is the triangle. You want the three main things that you use to be nearby. So the sink, the fridge and the cooker need to be in this triangle. Also consider how many plug sockets you need and where they should be placed. The kitchen should be as easy to navigate as possible and a good set up means getting around will be easy.
Strategy The Layout: A good means to make the layout will be to locate marked locations for your stove, sink, and refrigerator. Also, if you exercise the area for food preparation, you could include a kitchen island that functions as a table for 2 or 4; relying on the room available later on.
Everybody has their own preferences when it comes to kitchen designs. You may prefer a traditional country kitchen with an aga and flagstone floor and real wood units. Or you might like a more modern and contemporary look. There are many things to think about, such as where to fit the sink, the oven and the fridge, which colour schemes you like and which materials suit your kitchen design. It is also important when planning your new kitchen, to look at the practical side of things. You might like the idea of a big range style cooker, but if your kitchen is on the small side, an oven which is fitted into the surfaces is probably a better option. You also need to take note of the layout of your kitchen; where the sink is in relation to the oven, and where the doors and windows are in the room. You need your kitchen to be practical, easy to use and safe, at the same time as being comfortable and decorated to your taste.
Among the different styles of surfaces to choose from are granite, a very popular option which works well with a modern kitchen, laminate, used effectively in both modern and traditional farmhouse style kitchens, silestone, a beautiful stone composite containing quartz and available in many colours, and corian, a very versatile and solid material.
