The kitchen is the most trafficked room in the house, plus unlike the bathroom, it will usually be occupied by many people at the same time. Therefore, a kitchen remodel is a wise investment that will be enjoyed for years to come.
There are 3 steps in creating a great kitchen and they all revolve around the planning stage. The first step you need to do is choose the proper layout of your new kitchen, then decide on the placement of major appliances, then work on the project aspects such as cabinets, storage, tile, backsplash, flooring, lighting, and colors.
When it comes to choosing the layout, it depends on the room that you have to work with. If you are updating an existing floor plan, you may be stuck with the confines of that plan. If you are completely knocking out walls and rehabbing the living room, then the sky is the limit with your project ideas. The most important thing to consider is the work‐triangle. This is an imaginary triangle formed by the placement of the sink, stove, and refrigerator. Having these three main kitchen tools in easy proximity will make your kitchen more efficient.
Once you know your room limitations, you can choose, an L‐shaped, U‐shaped, a one‐walled, or a two‐walled galley project. When it comes to adding kitchen islands, make sure they don’t block off any of the work triangle items. When deciding on the placement of major appliances take into account existing plumbing and electrical hook‐ups. You can save money by working with what you already have in place or you can improve the placement of these items, while at the same time upgrading the system.
Just try to balance the cost and the features to get the remodel that you are happy with, and you will end up with a great kitchen. Probably, the most fun and the most difficult to decide on is the project aspect. What type of cabinets do you want? How much storage do you need and can you fit in the allotted room? What color countertops will look best with the cabinets? Do you want granite or concrete countertops? These are all major project concerns.
