Work Surfaces: New home kitchen designs often focus on the cabinets, but your work surfaces are just as important. You need to ensure that not only is your choice of work surfaces practical but that there is adequate working space. It is a good idea to have set down areas, especially near your microwave or oven, and preparation space to ensure that your kitchen is highly functional. If you like to entertain in your kitchen, consider adding longer lengths of work surfaces to create serving space or a place where your guests can sit and chat while you finish preparing a meal.
Layout: The layout should be the primary consideration of any new kitchen designs. You need to determine how the design will impact functionality and determine how well you can move around in the space. Your layout will be influenced by how you intend to use your kitchen, the types of meals you like to prepare and if you have any preferences or dislikes. It is also a good idea to incorporate some future proofing into your design. For example, if you have small children now, think about how the space will be used when the children are a little older.
Go for Built-in Storage: One more valuable suggestion is to choose integrated storage space; specifically if you have a really minimal space. You can place your recipes, utensils, pots, pans, home appliances, cupboard things, and also so much a lot more in these areas.
Hooks for hanging utensils and magnetic strips for storing knives makes good use of wall space and will free up the counter space. Smaller ovens and stoves are a must, and you will likely have to sacrifice a double sink in favor of a more compact cleaning area. Overhead cabinets are a must, and it‘s a good idea to incorporate as many inset appliances as possible.
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.
