Kitchen Nightmares: Avoid Making These Mistakes While Remodeling Your Kitchen in 2019
The secret ingredient to delicious recipes is always love. But when it comes to renovating your kitchen, you need a little bit more than that.
With the New Year here, you’re probably already planning on revamping your dull, lifeless living room. But why should your kitchen be put on the backburner? As the soul of the house, it needs a splash of color and a dash of passion and energy to bring it to life.
But most homeowners, in their search for unique designs, often go overboard with décor and furnishings. This can have the opposite effect and make your kitchen stand out…in a negative way.
But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered (literally!)
Make sure to avoid these mistakes when remodeling your kitchen:
Not Focusing on Functionality
Functionality should be the focus of your kitchen design. While it’s essential to make it look beautiful, what’s the point if you can’t use it?
Make sure the fridge is located near the sink and stove. In fact, the sink, stove, and fridge should all be in close vicinity. This will make it easier for you to walk back and forth when cooking and save time.
Make sure all your key appliances are nearby. That way, you don’t have to worry about juggling things at the same time.
Small Counter Space
Think of your kitchen counter as your workstation because that’s exactly what it is. If your workstation at the office is cluttered and unorganized or doesn’t have space, would you be able to work?
Your kitchen needs a wide countertop to help you cook, entertain guests, and avoid accidents. And while incidents in the kitchen are inevitable, bigger countertops can reduce the chances by a notch.
Skimping On Cabinets
Have you ever seen a kitchen without cabinets? They’re the most essential part of your kitchen’s furnishings. A kitchen without cabinets is like food without salt—you can eat it but it’s not the same.
When it comes to cabinetry, there are plenty of options to choose from. But the most popular are stainless steel and wooden cabinets.
Steel cabinets are durable, chic, and add a modern look to your kitchen’s interior. Wooden cabinets, on the other hand, are traditional, stylish, and add a polished look to your kitchen’s furnishings.
Steel cabinets work great with unconventional and unique colors, whereas wooden cabinets work best with solid and pastel colors.
Whatever you choose to go with, remember that it’s best to ask a professional for guidance. At Ikonni, we can guide you through the process of choosing the right cabinet for your kitchen. From steel cabinets to wooden ones, we can find just what you’re looking for!
